Editorial Review of That's-A-Burger

If you're looking to cash a check, get a manicure and score one of Chicago's best burgers, then this green awning topped unremarkable strip mall on 71st street is the perfect one-stop shop. Make sure you bring an automobile and/or a portable captain's chair, as That's-A-Burger is takeout only and you'll definitely be chowing down on the hood of your car.

Of course, that's assuming you even make it to the parking lot after you receive your burger. The beefy perfume and potato scents that waft from these handcrafted burgers and skin-on French fries bathed in seasoning salt might induce you to binge out before you leave the curb.

While the standard well griddled, finely ground patty on a soft pillowy bun is fine, it's the outliers you really want to explore, like the Whammy Burger, outfitted with oozy cheese, a split and griddled polish sausage and grilled onion. If you're trying to commit suicide, you can also add bacon and a fried egg to this cholesterol bomb. If you like it spicy, the chili burger topped with bean chili and fiery sport peppers will hit the spot. If you're trying to keep things healthy, the turkey burger is a good as the beef version and the perfect way to balance you out after a Whammy.

Average cost: <$10
