Grass-fed burger joint, this one BYO.

Our Review

Sixteen specialty burgers are the well-executed focal point of the menu at this sleek near-south-side joint, though the sides, variations on a fried theme, are consistently rewarding, too. I had to be talked down from ordering something called the Jersey Shore, appealing (like its televised muse) for sheer trashiness: the burger comes accoutred with pepperoni, marinara, and fresh mozzarella. Instead we settled on the Burger Point Burger, topped with roasted chile peppers, a fried egg, bacon, and pepper jack, and the Dirty South, with aged cheddar, more bacon, and barbecue sauce. The former was spicy and satisfying; the pungent cheese atop the latter gave it a deep umami finish. Hot buffalo wings are a good choice for a side here, and so are salty, thin-cut sweet potato fries, but I especially recommend something that we ordered without having any clue as to what it was: the spiral fry stick, a thinly sliced whole potato deep-fried on a skewer and seasoned with salt and vinegar (other options are available, including one with "ketchup seasoning"). It was a gourmand’s tube of Pringles, and addictive.
