Charlie Beinlich's

-Got beef?
The Burgers of Chicago (land)

Somewhere in my "food folder" as I call it, Charlie Beinlich's got lost in the mess. This popular tavern has been serving the people of the Northern suburbs since 1950 and it still has the old time charm and feel today.  Heck some of the folks that drink there look like they might of took their first date to Beinlich's the year it opened up.

Because it's been around so long and many families stay put in the area this place is now a favorite of quite a few different generations of people that grew up around there. From the outside it looks like a tavern you'd find in the Northwoods. It's dark and cozy inside this old time haunt that sits in Northbrook and is well known for their hamburgers. Those who love the place swear by them. Others like their chili and they have a few other things on the menu but I couldn't tell you what they are. I doubt most regulars could.


The burgers are pretty good and to go with the old school atmosphere it makes for a fun place to eat if you live nearby. But I wouldn't make the trek out there from the city unless maybe I grew up on this place and going there brings back pleasant memories. The burger is no frills and about what you expect most places that serve burgers to be able to do. However we live in a lazy world and most places don't. So I can respect Beinlich's and it's backers because of that. They didn't change with time. See y'all next time.
