Our mission: Find a burger joint that could please all food preferences at the table.
Mission accomplished! At Burger Bar Chicago in Lincoln Park we found a place that has full-on burger culture and delicious options for all. We loved the loud music, the craft beers and the burgers. This place has mega-flavor in everything from the sandwiches to the sides (yes, we did deem it necessary to taste the mac and cheese), and well-stocked bar.
The Powerhouse Veggie Burger was definitely not a slight afterthought. Our server seemed proud and knowledgeable of the freshness and variety of ingredients when we asked about it. We were told later by the chefs/owners, John McLean and Martin Murch, that John’s daughter was vegetarian and they created this burger with her in mind. The ingredients are both local and organic. The Powerhouse is made with “grilled mushrooms, brown rice, ceci beans and fresh herbs … the rest is a secret.”
