Great fast-food style restaurant with burgers and hot dogs etc. at reasonable prices. There's also a bar area and the staff are very friendly. A good choice if you want a quick bite to eat or drink!

If you’re in the area, this is a good place to either sit down and eat or grab something quick and keep going. Daily special is normally a good path to take when ordering. If you’re getting a burger from here, expect to spend around $7 - $8 for a triple burger (fries and drink included). The double and single burger are less expensive but, the staff may convince you to get one of the larger ones anyways. The hamburger patties are pretty thin so I would recommend getting a double or triple anyways. The bun combined with this burger is very good.The staff is very friendly and getting through the line is pretty quick (maybe 5 – 10 min to place order and get food).Overall, I like this place and will be coming back for lunch.

Tasty, thin little burgers - get the double cheeseburger, which is on special every Thursday. The fries are not bad and are super hot; take advantage at this location as at the one on Michigan, no fries - cheeps. Always a place to sit down here. It's a dive bar too, so if you want to drink at reasonable prices you can do that here too. The TVs also always seem to be showing the most random shows, which sometimes makes me laugh. Oh, and make sure you load up on the pickle slices, they are kind of my favorite part. Not sure where they get them, but they're good and I always pile a bunch on my burger.

I went in to order 2 double cheeseburger specials with drinks, only had enough money for that deal. On 1 of the orders i wanted water in the cup instead of coke, and Nicole decided that its not ok to substitute water for coke and made the total more than it would have been had i just taken abcoke instead. So now im walking around trying to find something to eat.

This is a great place to meet friends after work or stop in for lunch or breakfast. They only have a few beers on draft but they have an adequate selection of bottles. Beer is inexpensive when purchased by the bucket and mixed drinks are around $5 similar to other bars in the area. This location is frequented by people who work in the financial district such as traders, attorneys and financial advisors. You'll find them elbow-to-elbow with plumbers, electricians & steamfitters. This place is especially known for their cheeseburgers. Unfortunately this particular Billy Goat will be closing at the end of 2016 due to renovation of the entire building. There are no plans to reopen in that space but you can find other Billy Goat locations such as lower Michigan Avenue.

This place has amazing hamburgers and fries, very cool environment, you walk up to the counter order, they give you the burger and your dress it at their station. The fries are great too they are the old school fries. They have a nice sized parking lot so there is usually no problem parking. The decoration is great too they have lots of old pictures and TV's everywhere.

If you are in Chicago you have to go to the place named for the curse of the Cubs. Get the double cheese burger and fries with a Coke (or diet Coke).

As soon as I walked in, I was immediately pushed out and yelled at by the cook because I didn't know it was closed. There are no signs to alert people of it being closed. Rude staff. Do not recommend

The food is cheap and good. Like really really cheap. The beer was okay. It is a very historic bar and pretty much a hole in the ground. But by dive bar standards it is pretty freakin solid.

Burgers aren't the best I've had but are pretty good, don't bother getting a single as the patties are way to thin. Double or more or else you're eating all bread. Fries are very good. Setting is in a bar but during lunch it doesn't get all crazy. Video games and TVs are available.

The place to come for a cheezborger (single, double or triple!) The patties are pretty thin, so a double is usually what I get. They have a condiment bar for you to load up your burger with pickles, onions, etc. Fountain coke and a whole lotta personality.

It would be great to tell people they have to go here but it's just not true. If you're a tourist and want to hear someone say "Cheezborger" then go ahead.The buns are better than the burgers and the meat to bun ratio is all off. The prices aren't very good, neither are the specials but the fries are good!With all the gourmet burger places this is just a tourist attraction now.
