Amazing Burger with even better Fries and it's not at a burger spot...

...it's at a Greek spot. The one and only Athenian Room! Located in Lincoln Park, Chicago at 807 W. Webster! I have been going here since I was a freshman in H.S., 1985. And I did not have the Burger until this year!! This year!! Ridiculous! It's ridiculous because the burger is easily one of the tastiest burgers I have ever eatin, it is totally Monte-licious! I feel like I wasted 20+ yrs of my life. And the fries, the fries are amazing! They call em Greek Fries and they are seasoned with oil, vinegar, salt, pepper and Greek Spices (Oregano, Basil, Thyme, and other stuff, like salt, pepper....). The same cook is there since I was in H.S. as well is the hostess/greeter. Consistency, people.

Enough talk, let's check out the burger...

There is nothing I love more than a char grilled burger and this thick, meaty, juicy burger is char grilled to perfection (medium, for me). The bun is soft and I love sesame seed buns with a burger. and the good thing about a nice fresh bun is it absorbs all the juices from the burger, that is my favorite. So much so that i would like you to watch me eat it, please.

Such a tasty burger, I was happy to eat it... ALL!!

After that tasty burger it is now my duty to eat the fries, the ridiculously delicious Greek Fries, which I have been eating since 1985.

And last but mot least I wanna mention that they also have delicious salads, I like the small Greek salad and they happily accept gold coins! They are so happy that they put in print in the menu! Check out Athenian Room, and try the burger!! It's not all Greek to me!

One last thing, the restaurant shares a restroom with the neighboring bar, which I loved when I was 14! Now, I dunno. ; )
