Why the best burger in Chicago is at a French restaurant might be a question for the ages. But rather than question it, just go. Go immediately and bring your appetite because a single burger at Au Cheval is actually a double and don't even get me started on the double cheeseburger! You will get your burger(s) covered in cheese, served with dijonnaise and with or without a fried egg, just as the French have always intended. That first bite will make you think you've never really had a burger until now and maybe you'll question your country allegiance. If a French restaurant makes a burger this good, what has happened to America? Well, it just got immeasurably better. That's what. So settle down, eat that burger and thank the French for their contribution to one of America's most perfect foods.

The Best Burger I have ever had in my entire life
I had Au Cheval's meaty double patty, ooey gooey cheeseburger three days ago and I'm still dreaming about it.
It is the best burger I've ever had hands down. It tastes like a Big Mac but without the marketing and the processed meat.
Amazing. Go at lunch - a wait on a Friday night is easily about 2 to 3 hours and sit at the bar.
Notes: the fries are a big portion and $6. It's too much if you're by yourself. The bloody mary here is ace. The burger is served with a mighty dill pickle. The mille feuille looked AMAZING as well.
