Incredible experience at DMK for my friend’s birthday. Dani is an incredibly smart and warm waitress, and made the evening so wonderful. Food was NUTS. Best burger I’ve had in Chicago, truly. Hidden gem I’m surprised this place isn’t packed every single night...

The food was great and the manager, believe his name was Sam, was really friendly and attentive. Awesome place.

The wait staff are awesome. However...Dark bar pumping loud “can’t hear what you said” pop and classic rock tunes. Tables are small. Chairs are small and rigid. Not comfortable at all. Small burgers big price. The bar has a selection of IPAs and whiskey none of which I recognize at all. Maybe try adding some average beer and drinks for the average Joe. Over $70 for two adults and two kids who had Mac and cheese and a grilled cheese. Probably better for the young and wealthy.

It was great for a quick lunch.

Would prefer that some kind of side come with the burger- the visual wasn’t very appealing to have just a burger on a plate.

The food is very good. Favorites are deviled eggs, burgers, fries, and mac & cheese (yum!). Service was also great!

Our service was not good. Food was spilled on our table and not cleaned up. Our orders came out wrong and then to try and "fix" the situation they gave us a teaspoon size sample of a milkshake. Wouldn't recommend it.

We arrived for a birthday celebration dinner with our son and it was so hot and humid he fell asleep. There was no air conditioner so it made everything pretty less than average. The staff was very nice but we took our cake and did it at home

Food was good, they have a number of burgers to choose from, and for a touch extra you can exchange your grass fed beef burger into a turkey burger or a bison burger. Burgers are $12-$14 and include absolutely nothing! French fries, which are uncommonly good are another 350 for half a plate or seven dollars for a full plate. This ends up costing a lot for a burger where you don’t get your choice of how it’s cooked, medium, medium well etc. My biggest problem with this restaurant is that it is unbelievably loud. I’m not sure why the music was not playing it might be the Caverness effect of the way it’s built but you can barely hear yourself think.

Came for lunch on a Wednesday when the Cubs were out of town. Sat at the bar, hardly anyone was there; food, beer and service was outstanding. What’s not to like?

Waitress was super snotty and rude. Won’t be back anytime soon. Food was not up to par, fries were hard and cold, I had an upset stomach later that night

Our food and service was great, but they sat us where there wasn’t much light. It was difficult to read our menus.
