dmk, the chicago location, has been featured on diners, drive-ins and dives. however this is not how i came to love this place. i was on 22nd street heading torwards yorktown mall when i noticed the big red DMK letters in between the starbucks and the jareds. so when i got home i googled (is that a verb yet?). and then saw the menu. i was sold, i had to go.
fried pickles & okra, a MUST
chili rubbed onion strings- very very good, but fried pickles always win my heart/taste buds over.
lots and lots of fries- the sweet potato is by far my fave, the others are awesome, and this was the first time i had fries with gravy, good but very rich
#13- crispy portobello, fontina cheese, arugla, marinated tomatoes & horseradish sauce= amazing
I have actually tasted many of the burgers there, my top three being the pastrami one, the patty melt and the one above. the bison and lamb are good but my top 3 are better.
i highly recommend making a trip out to this place, not sure if the one in the city is much different food-wise, i hope not though. the cocktails are unique and delicious, i had the backyard bbq and lemonade ones. the mac and cheese is so good i can’t even think of the words to describe it, i just start drooling. they also have homemade sodas and a decent beer selection. It is on the small side but on a friday at 7 we got seated in less then 20 minutes. staff is friendly, maybe too casual at times (our waitress was sitting down at another table and sometimes would take awhile to get/refill our drinks). and the nerdy design geek in me loves their logo, i kinda want a t-shirt.
