The Burger Social



It All Starts With the blend


Our burgers are hand formed and delivered from local Midwest farms. Illinois, Iowa, and Wisconsin provide our Certified Angus beef blend. A combination of brisket and chuck make for an ideal meaty texture and juicy burger experience.

We don't stop with burgers, a diverse menu that is chef driven features sandwiches, salads, and specials that are sure to satiate. Comfort food with modern twists is our starting point and usually leads to uncommon favorites. Our cocktail and beer menus are inspired by big city concepts but also accommodate accessibility.

Call-Ahead Policy



 Unfortunately we do not take reservations.  We have a limited number of tables and are the type of restaurant that is conducive to our guests taking all the time they would like once sat.  This makes it difficult to guarantee that a table will be open at any given time.  We do, however, offer call-ahead seating.


How it works:

Think of it exactly as if you are physically coming into the restaurant to put your name on the wait list, but you are doing it over the phone instead.   We recommend you call the restaurant shortly before you plan on leaving (please, no more than one hour before your arrival).  If there is a wait at that point, the host will take down your name and number, add you to our wait list, and quote you an approximate time for when your table will be ready.  When you arrive, please check in at the host stand.  We will not attempt to seat you until you have checked in.  

If there is not a wait when you call, your name will be kept at the top of the list for one hour until you arrive in case a wait develops in the meantime.  

In either situation, we will not hold a table for you (that would be a reservation), but your wait time should be much shorter than if you arrived without cailling first.  


Other info:

  • Please do not call us at noon and ask to be put on the wait-list for that evening, that's a reservation.

  • Similarly, do not call at 5:00 and say "we'll be there at 6:30". Only call shortly before you plan on coming in to the restaurant.

  • Sometimes when you arrive you will see empty tables but will still be told there is a wait. This is because we notify our guests that their table is ready via text. After you check in we encourage our guests to take a walk, sit at the bar, run an errand, or whatever else you want instead of standing around for what could be a long time. When your table is ready, we send you a text and then give you ten minutes to return to the restaurant. If you see empty tables, that probably means we are waiting for those guests to return.

  • Please do not get angry at our host staff. A lot of them are kids who are working a very stressful job and are just trying to do what has been asked of them. If you feel like they have made a mistake or if you have an idea for how our system can be improved, please ask to speak with a manager.
