  3. This actually might be the worst burger in Chicago. The fact that you say it is chicago's best is troublesome and makes you lose credibility.

  4. This place looms so large in the imagination and inspires such fantasies as a greasy spoon of your dreams that it's unlikely anyone wouldn't be disappointed by eating here. And if the food is just mediocre or maybe even worse, that could hardly come as a surprise. The bun to meat ratio, by the way, is just unacceptable; that's a McDonald's ratio. And, frankly, not having fries may be charming but it's also a red flag; if this place has never made the effort to get a deep fryer, how much TLC could it have put into ANY of its food?

  5. GO TO BILLY GOATS AND SQUAT

    AFTER YOU DIE, YOUR GONNA NEED FOOD

    GO SQUAT THERE NOW. STAY THERE

    ITS ALL CONNECTED

  6. BILLY GOATS IS NOT PEDOPHILE, BUT BILL CLUNTONS BARRIED ENERGY

    EVERY CHEESEBURGER EATEN KNOWING THAT BILL CLINTON IS A RAPING LIAR WITH ITS WHORE BABBLING GONE.

    PEPSI
    KNOW COKE

    EAT
    IN JOY
    F THEM

    DONT FITE CRIME

    PRE*DICK IT

    MIKE MY CALL MUCHAEL SND HEARSE ON
    AND DEARS ON

  7. All burgers taste the same to me… except for the fast food ones. those are the only ones i can actually taste the difference. Otherwise these restaurants aint nothing special… all taste the same!
