5 juicy burger joints in Wrigleyville and West Lakeview

Indie Burger
1034 W. Belmont Ave. 773-857-7777
This quick-serve burger joint sets itself apart from the chains with third-pound patties of organic beef, thick-cut fries and, as a nod to its “indie” nature, band posters and a schedule of upcoming concerts at music venues around town.

DMK Burger Bar
2954 N. Sheffield Ave. 773-360-8686
At this lively bar from restaurateurs Michael Kornick and David Morton, thin patties of grass-fed beef are cooked medium, so double up if you’re craving a taller stack. Topping choices are numbered, ranging from the smoky #1 (aged cheddar, bacon, charred red onions and barbecue sauce) to the classic #8 (lettuce, tomato, raw onion, pickles, mayo and your choice of cheese).

Rockit Burger Bar
3700 N. Clark St. 773-645-4400
When the owners of Rockit Bar & Grill’s Wrigleyville location realized that a majority of customers were ordering burgers, they revamped the menu to put the spotlight on this beefy favorite. Options include the award-winning Rockit Burger (topped with brie, date aioli and crispy shallots) as well as unique creations such as the Johnny Apple Burger, made with applewood- smoked bacon, pecan aioli and apple slices.

Select Cut Steak House
2808 N. Halsted St. 773-244-1500
There’s just one burger on the menu at this neighborhood steakhouse, and it’s a hefty cheese-topped classic with a half-pound patty made from steak trimmings.

Beckett’s Public House
3210 N. Lincoln Ave. 773-880-9620
This wood-paneled hangout has the look of an Irish pub, but its menu of burgers trots the globe. Go Tex Mex with toppings such as pepper jack, cilantro-lime mayo and sweet corn salsa, or lean French with cognac-braised onions, brie and truffled mushrooms.
