DMK Burger Bar Restaurant Review

: In so many ways, this burger joint --- the brainchild of Michael Kornick (mk) and David Morton (Morton's The Steakhouse) --- is a winning formula, from the casual, come-as-you-are communal feel to the affordable, and different-enough, takes on patties. The things we liked --- the coffee milk shake, the seriously good grass-fed lamb burger oozing with tzatziki, the salty fried okra and dill pickles --- we really liked. Come to think of it, the bacon mac 'n' cheese, deviled eggs and chile-rubbed onion strings were good, too. And while we'll admit it took a bit for the griddle to get its groove, it has, and the chef-driven, grass-fed beef burgers are among the best in town. That's especially true of the flavor-forward chile, egg, bacon and jack take. There's a small, boutique selection of beer and wine to go with. Also located at 2370 Fountain Square Dr., Lombard, 630-705-9020.
