Best Burgers on Chicago's North Shore


If you’re looking to indulge in a juicy burger (or two), the North Shore is the place to do it. Plus, we’ve rounded up 15 of our favorite burgers around the North Shore (complete with drool-worthy photos), so the hard part is already done. All you have to do is head out and enjoy!

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.

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 dinner.
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.

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.

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.

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.

12, Granite City Food & Brewery
992 Willow Road, Northbrook

Whichever steakburger you choose — Maple Pepper Bacon, "The CEO" Triple Blend Cheeseburger, Bison, etc. — you’ll be able to pair it with a beer that’s been brewed on site.


Currently craving: this juicy burger from The RAM Restaurant & Brewery in Wheeling. Seriously, how good does this look?! ??: The RAM Restaurant & Brewery #chicagonorthshore #wheeling

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! 

Skipping ?? Tuesday in order to spend some quality time with this bad boy @whiskeythiefchi. ?????? The Thief Burger: white cheddar cheese curds, pickled onions, bacon, fried egg & dijonnaise. ??
