“The best burger I’ve had in my life”. These are the first words that come on my mind when i think of the burgers at Au Cheval in Chicago. If you are a burger fan, just like me, you need to book your next trip to Chicago right now and be prepared to forget all about your diet and go visit the city’s best diner. Trust me…you’ll thank me later!
Au Cheval – Classy upscale diner, but at the same time dark lounge in a small room full of hungry people ready to satisfy their cravings. Leather banquettes, a large long bar, and a few tables in the back set a welcoming environment of a lounge that is ready to serve you the most beautiful and tasty diner food.
Tip: If you want to grab a burger try to visit the diner early for lunch or late at night right after dinner rush hours as you may have to wait up to 2 hours to be seated otherwise. It stays open till midnight, so its the perfect place to go after a movie date or after-work drinking. As for Sunday brunch if you get there by 11 am, you’ll most probably be set within half hour.
A thick, peppered, hearty portion of bacon that is absolutely essential on your burger or as a side.

- French fries: Either plain or with an fried egg on top they’ll taste crispy and salty
