Au Cheval is the most popular burger in Chicago, United States

Since 2012 an address in Chicago has become a mandatory stop for anyone who likes a good burger: 800 W Randolph St, in the gastronomic West Loop region. That's where the Au Cheval .

The restaurant run by the restauranteur Brendan Sodikoff , owner of eight more successful establishments in the country, including the second unit of Au Cheval, in New York, is relatively small, does not accept reservations and the queues are huge. So, here's a warning: arrive early, that is, when it opens, or be prepared to wait.

The reason for its success: one of the most famous burgers in the country. In fact, the publication Bon Appétit has already declared that it is the best burger in the United States , in addition to being a constant figure in several other lists and rankings. Whether it is the best, we cannot say. After all, we didn't try all the burgers there, but it's unforgettable, we guarantee that.

Atmosphere of Au Cheval, Chicago

The atmosphere has a retro touch, with leather seats and an inviting counter in front of the large grill from which the popular burgers come out. In the background, a lively playlist that matches the excitement of getting a seat at the much talked about restaurant.

Go hungry and order the classic cheeseburger, which in the house version comes with two discs. Add the egg with the runny yolk and the tasty bacon, which comes in thick and juicy slices. The cheese goes between and on top of each burger, which arrives pink, homemade. If you belong to the “well done” crowd, don’t worry, the customer decides there!

The bread is toasted and crunchy, and a Dijonnaise sauce (lemon juice, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard) and house-made pickles finish the dish. The price: US$ 16.99 for a cheeseburger, US$ 2.99 for an egg, US$ 6.99 for bacon and taxes. Is it worth the price and the fame? Very!
