Supping Away: The Chicago Burger Company - Chicago

Normally I wouldn't really bother to write up a burger cafe but I was so pleasantly surprised by my riverside lunch that I thought it warranted some comments.
 This was  Day 3 of my Chicago 2009 visit. I had checked into the Sheraton Hotel and  was wandering around the area. The Chicago Burger Company Cafe is located on the river side of the hotel, with tables on a patio, and more tables down on the river walk itself. 

When I found myself a table next to the water's edge, I noted that the place was quite busy but I was in no hurry and wanted to enjoy a relaxing meal outside. The burger menu offers a the ability to design your own burger. You start with a choice of four basic burgers for $9.00; beef, turkey, salmon or veggie. Then you can pick one cheese out of 4 for a dollar, and two free toppings. I picked Gorgonzola blue cheese, guacamole and caramelized onions. The burger comes with tomato, lettuce, red onions and pickle and is served on a corn dusted bun. Fries are extra.
When my burger arrived it was huge with plentiful servings of the guacamole and caramelized onions. I felt very virtuous as I did not eat the bun but I thoroughly enjoyed the rest of the burger and the fries were excellent. Even without eating the bun I was sated. I think if I were going with a friend I would share a burger and fries and still find it more than adequate. I really needed a walk after lunch to exercise off the calories but I confess it was one of the best burgers I have had.
