Best Burgers on Chicago's North Shore

If you haven't heard – May is National Burger Month! If you need an excuse to indulge in a juicy burger (or two), this month is the month to do it. We’ve rounded up 15 of our favorite burgers around the North Shore (complete with drool-worthy photos). Here’s where to celebrate National Burger Month on Chicago’s North Shore.
 
 

Fried Louie with tots at Bar Louie. Fried egg seems to make any burger twice as good #burgers #barlouie

1. Bar Louie
Holiday Inn North Shore, 5300 Touhy Ave., Skokie
 
From the Backyard BBQ Burger to the Blue Louie Burger to the classic Cheeseburger, there’s a burger for everyone at Bar Louie. Pro tip: Enjoy $5 burgers with tots or fries from 5 pm – close on Tuesdays.
 
 

Stacks on stacks on stacks

2. Boltwood
804 Davis St., Evanston
 
There are many reasons to love Boltwood and the Boltwood Burger is definitely one of them. Served with a side of crispy potatoes, the burger is available during lunch, brunch and Tuesdays-Friday from 2-6 pm.
 
 

Yeah there's no way I'm skipping lunch ???? #burgers #fries

3. BurgerFi
1735 Milwaukee Ave., Glenview
 
Not your average burger chain, BurgerFi uses only 100% natural Angus beef with no steroids, antibiotics, growth hormones, chemicals or additives. We recommend the Breakfast All Day Burger.

4. The Claim Company
Northbrook Court, Northbrook
 
At the home of the Motherlode Burger, you can build your own burger by choosing your meat, bread, cheese and toppings. Up for a challenge? Eat a 3.5-pound burger and chips in 45 minutes or less and you’ll join the Claim Company Wall of Fame.
 
 

???? and garlic ??(meaning ????)

5. Edzo’s
1571 Sherman Ave., Evanston
 
Named one of the top 25 burgers in the US and best burger in Chicago by USA Today and Zagat, it’s easy to see why you should add Edzo’s to your burger bucket list. Pro tip: Don’t forget to order a side of fries.

6. Farmhouse Evanston
703 Church St., Evanston
 
We’re big fans of the burger at Farmhouse: grass fed beef, bacon, white cheddar, lettuce, tomato and onion on a butter bun. Make sure to order a side of cheese curds.
 
7. Found Kitchen and Social House
1631 Chicago Ave., Evanston
 
We have a serious weakness for the burger at Found Kitchen. Trust us – you’ll want to order this. Available during lunch only.
 
8. Guildhall
694 Vernon Ave., Glencoe
 
The entire menu at Guildhall is phenomenal and the Guildhall Burger is no exception.
 
9. Jolane’s
1100 N. Milwaukee Ave., Glenview
 
Head to Jolane’s, ask to sit on the sun-drenched covered patio and order one of the burgers.
 
10. North Branch Pizza & Burger Co.
4520 W. Lake Ave., Glenview
 
With a drool-worthy selection of wood-grilled burgers, there’s a burger for everyone at North Branch! We’re big fans of the Napa Valley, Farmer Brown and the Mistress (pictured). 
 
 

Lamb burgers and sangrias ???????? #chicagoeats

11. Peckish Pig
623 Howard St., Evanston
 
While Peckish Pig has many menu items, the burgers are not to be missed. The big question being: Beef & Chorizo Burger or Lamb Burger? The answer: You really can’t go wrong with either.
 
 

Curing our Monday blues?? #eeeeats #foodporn #spoonfeed #hungry #eatingfortheinsta #burger #chicagoeats #yummmm

12. Prairie Grass Café
601 Skokie Blvd., Northbrook
 
All hail Chicago Magazine’s #1 Sirloin Burger! Topped with mild Amish blue cheese, warm beefsteak tomato and grilled onions, this juicy burger should be added to your burger bucket list. Ps...it's *technically* low-carb since it comes without a bun.
 
13. RAM Restaurant & Brewery
700 N. Milwaukee Ave., Wheeling
 
Burgers and beer – what more could you need? We especially love the Broadway Melt: grilled beef patty on rye, garlic roasted mushrooms, truffle mayo, applewood-smoked bacon, roasted onion compote, bacon-onion jam and Wisconsin havarti.

 

We're adding this to our burger bucket list. ??: @spoon_harvard, @spoon_iu & @kendallschaffner #chicagonorthshore #winnetka #??

14. Stacked & Folded
551 Lincoln Ave., Winnetka

Whether you order the grass-fed beef, turkey or black bean burger, you'll get a glorious combo of cheddar cheese, avocado, carmalized onion and chipotle aioli served on a brioche bun. Bon appetit! 
 
15. Whiskey Thief
616 Davis St., Evanston
 
PSA: Whiskey Thief has a burger that is topped with white cheddar curds! Seriously, what’s better than that?
