What People Are Saying About BAB

  • On my way home I was planning on cooking dinner.  When I got home I was too tired to cook. I pass this place every day. Another burger joint? Their burgers are cooked to order so they take a little while.  You can call ahead which I have done since then. They have 1/3, 2/3, and 1/2 pound burgers. You can choose from the menu of all kinds of combinations or make your own you can't go wrong. I like that they have different kinds of fries and sides. The burgers are amazing, not overly seasoned and juicy!!! This is not your average burger joint!

  • I kept driving by this place and never care to stop and check it out. What a mistake! I was missing an awesome experience. This place has some great burgers. The sweet potato fries are awesome. The regular fries are tasty also and the staff is friendly and very helpful. Come in and try the Bottomless Pit Burger and if you are feeling brave enough try the hottest baddest burger. They have plenty of parking and seating.

  • We moved away from Illinois a year ago and I can sincerely say that Back Alley Burger wins first place on my list for very best burger anywhere (I like the actual Back Alley Burger) and for very best sweet potato fries anywhere!

  • THIS PLACE IS THE BOMB. The burgers here are so fresh and tasty. I had the Bottomless Pit burger with fries and that was the best burger I have had in a 4-5 town radius. If you have any doubt in your mind that this hamburger may not be for you. Throw that doubt on the ground and smash its guts out. Go eat a burger here and lay yourself in a food coma of deliciousness. And when our done with that, buy an Oreo milkshake because there's always room for dessert

  • I've been enjoying burgers, fries, and shakes at Back Alley for about 2 years now, so this review is long overdue. The food is amazing! I really enjoy how accommodating they are for you. Their employees give great customer service and always check up on you and offer refills if you're running low on your beverage. The Nutella Shakes are absolutely divine and cheer you up on the gloomiest of days. What's not to love? The fries are fresh cut and extra delicious piping hot! Why go to a regular burger joint wen you can go to Back Alley where you have a HUGE variety to choose from? I've also tried their Mac & Cheese bites and those are pretty swell as well ;)

  • Love this place. I been here quite a few times, and have tried a few items, but I always have a standard I go back to. Yummy!

  • "Best burger we have had in the area. Burgers are large without being overloaded with ridiculous toppings as is the trend at other places which can take away from the quality of the "star of the show", the meat. Onion rings were excellent. I wish we had room left over to try a shake...next time."

  • By a great margin, this joint is 1000x better than 5 guys or any other burger place. Their selection is great and the food is amazing! Does get busy at times and the seating is limited. But well worth the wait, folks.

  • "We had a tremendous experience today at Back Alley Burger! The food was insanely good, creative and healthy, the environment had a really great vibe, the staff was super helpful and friendly (we had a mini magic show by a staff member at our table and another staff member gave my 2 year old daughter a balloon on the way out which made her day)! We were visiting from Boston but will definitely send my Chicago family here! Thank you!"

  • "You can build your own burger, what else could you want? You can choose what ever toppings you want and you can stay within the price range you are comfortable with. Staff was friendly and the place was clean."
