Hamburgers are modeled after Victorian-era architecture, a style known for its ketchup-insulated roofs, flowing lettuce curtains, and meat everywhere. Feast ornately upon a well-formed feeding frenzy for two with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of burgers, drinks, and more at Jury's Food & Drink in Lincoln Square.
Much like a swan in a novelty duck costume, Jury's Food & Drink's bar-like exterior contradicts its interior, a cozy dining room flanked by a beautifully carved wooden bar and tables lined with starched, white-linen tablecloths. The dinner menu offers a mix of steak-cut onion rings ($7.25), bruschetta ($8.95), and homemade soups ($3.50–$4.50) as well as substantial plates of pasta, seafood, chops, and steaks. But the burgers, which have been voted Best of Chicago by WBBM channel 2 and into the top-five burgers in Time Out Chicago, are the standout dish. Let The Judge, a 1/2 lb. burger topped with cheddar cheese, bacon, avocado, raw onion, and roma tomatoes ($12), arbitrate disputes between your molars and bicuspids, or let the salmon burger ($7.50) drown your mouth in aquatic flavors and homemade tartar sauce. During the sunny season, diners can head outside to the lush patio and bite burgers while bathed in sunset hues.
