AJ's Burgers & Beef
The sun sets over the Chicago skyline, burnishing the tops of the edifices and casting their reflections on Lake Michigan. But instead of lounging on a boat in the water, guests are sitting in the bright blue dining room of AJ's Burgers & Beef, gazing at a mural of the city's downtown buildings. As natives of the Chicago suburbs, the owners wanted to bring big-city eats to this college town, for which they've earned several awards from local publications. To this end, Vienna beef hot dogs are piled high with bright green relish, yellow mustard, sport peppers, and celery salt, and italian beef sandwiches are soaked in au jus and topped with giardiniera for a more authentic Windy City meal than a grilled pair of Air Jordans. Signature plates include crispy seasoned waffle fries and an Angus-beef burger slathered in housemade garlic sauce.
