Tom Kelly's Pub Burger is the best in the area! We have known of Tom Kelly's but assumed that is was your typical Pub with the typical food. This is not the case! We tried their carried out to see if we were right and was blown away with their burger. We have now put Tom Kelly's at the top of our list when we need our burger fix.

I vote for Jameson's in Frankfort. They do a great job at cooking the burger at the right temperature and offer some tremendous options to build the burger. Tom Kelly's has a good Patty Melt and I like the Burgers at Primetime, even if they tend to overcook them (medium rare means medium rare!!!).

I LOVE the Stoney Point Grill burger - perfect texture, perfect seasoning and perfectly complemented with sweet potato fries. Yummy!!!

We drive to Chicago for burgers at Kuma`s which is rated one of the top burgers in the city. Wild Rover burgers compare favorably to Kuma`s! Without a doubt the best burger in the area and their homemeade soups ROCK! Not your typical bar food at all.

Thanks, JCM! I've just had the Big Brown there, but I'm excited to try a new one.
