Since opening in 2005, Kuma’s Corner has become a pioneer in the industry, recognized for being the first heavy metal-themed burger restaurant in the country, popularizing the pretzel bun and serving its original Kuma burger, topped with a fried egg. Every Kuma’s burger is a proprietary blend served on a 10 oz fresh patty, never frozen, and piled high with fresh ingredients.
Kuma’s food has received numerous accolades, including being voted the No. 1 burger in America by The Daily Meal, and the Ghost has been called one of the 17 most influential burgers in America by Time Magazine. Kuma’s has been featured on several TV shows, including Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
But the menu doesn't stop at burgers: Kuma’s mac and cheese has become just as popular and has been recognized on Thrillist Top 10 and Chicago's Best. No wonder Kuma’s Corner is proudly serving the best burgers on the planet.
Kuma's Corner has two locations in Chicago: the original location in Avondale, and their West Loop location, which opened in 2017. The diverse and inclusive staff is both fun and entertaining while being attentive to guests' needs.
