Hamburger restaurant

Does this Geneva burger restaurant live up to the hype | Chicago’s Kitchen King

When visiting Geneva, I wanted to try a restaurant that was listed on Chicago’s Best.

The name of this restaurant is The Local Burger in Geneva.

This restaurant is known for its burgers obviously from its name.

The restaurant inside is really nice. The decor is very modern and well maintained, everything looked very clean.

They also have a small outdoor area if you choose to dine outside on a nice day.

I also heard that not only do they have great burgers, but they also make delicious shakes.

I ordered a Horchata flavor and my wife ordered a S’more flavored shake.

The shakes were absolutely delicious, I still think about them weeks later. The Horchata shake came with a delicious Churro.

The s’mores shake came with a large marshmallow on top, both shakes were out of this world.

I ordered my main course the double patty melt burger smash.

My wife ordered the local burger which was a beef patty with American cheese and all the toppings you wanted. The side she chose was mac and cheese.

The burgers were absolutely delicious of very high quality. I would say this is one of the best burgers I have ever had in my life.

My wife really enjoyed her burger, the mac and cheese was also tasty.

My only criticism of the restaurant is that I noticed some people who seem to be either the owners or the managers. They hung out at the bar talking to the waitresses and goofing around. They never attempted to interact with any of the customers dining at the restaurant to ask how their meal was.

Again, this is just my review. I have run restaurants for many years and believe that a good owner or manager should be in touch with all of their customers and not sit openly at the bar to chat or blunder.

I really enjoyed this restaurant, I think it’s definitely something you should check out next time you’re in the area.

I rate the local burger 7 out of 10.
