The Burgers of Chi
I got a chance to try M Burger (for free) when they were giving their signature burgers away with the purchase of anything else on their menu. My regular readers know I don't often go downtown to the newer much hyped Yelpi like places. I had heard mixed things about the burger and was already downtown when I got a text from a friend telling me they were free that day so I hopped on over. M Burger is a lettuce entertain you enterprise and opened up a couple years back just off Michigan avenue on Huron. They also have a 2nd location on Ontario. The place as you would expect was packed when I visited with the free burgers. There's not alot of room inside and most visitors take their orders back to the office or where they work at near the location that their at.

The menu is pretty simple with the burgers being the star of the show. They use hearty Midwestern beef and fresh ingredients and are available in singles and doubles. Chicken sandwiches, a chopped chicken salad and shakes round out the menu along with sides of fries. I ordered a regular sized fry and got their signature M burger for free on my visit. The M burger is a double cheese with bacon and their secret sauce which is similar to all other burger spots "secret sauce" or thousand island and other ingredients. You get your choice of topping which include the usual suspects and if your paying the burger is $4.49 and you know what? I liked it. I thought it was a tasty palate pleasing hamburger. If I had an office near an M Burger I would be there a couple times a month. Good fast food, fairly priced in an area that for the most part has neither.
