    Publication Names Chicago's 'Most Essential' Burgers

    If you’re hungry for a burger in the city of Chicago, a new list will tell you where you need to go to get your fix.

    A new ranking by Eater Chicago has revealed the 20 Most Essential Burgers in the city, and while there are a few usual suspects on the list, there are also some unexpected surprises.

    A new ranking of burgers in the United States looks favorably on Chicago, with four different burgers in the Windy City ranking among the top 100.

    The top spot on the list is occupied by a burger joint that technically isn’t in Chicago, but is close enough to warrant a road trip. Edzo’s Burger Shop, located in Evanston, is known for its smashed and griddled patties, according to Eater, and is a top-tier fast-casual burger.

    An Andersonville institution checks in at number two, with Little Bad Wolf in the 1500 block of West Bryn Mawr Avenue getting the distinction. Several burgers, including the Bad Burger and the Wolf Burger, are both cited by Eater as must-eats.
