Burgers. Of this month. And, closed July 4th.

So we do this every year. Basically, we close every fourth of July to honor our independence and drink lots of whiskey and blow stuff up. So that’s fair warning. We are closed July 4th.

Now, second order of business, new Burgers of The Month at both of our locations! Without further ado:

Kuma’s Corner


We’ve been fans of Trap Them for some time and these guys have a new record, appropriately titled Blissfucker, out and we couldn’t be more stoked. We encourage you to come eat their namesake burger and then immediately run home and order their new record from Prothetic Records here:

  • 10 oz. patty
  • Pork Tenderloin
  • Pineapple-Jalapeño Salsa
  • Queso Cotila
  • Cactus Tortilla Chips
  • Habanero Mayo
  • Cilantro.


Kuma’s Too


We’re pretty big fans of smoked out riffs and headbanging just like these guys and hopefully everyone else will be as hype on them as we are. Buy their new record here.

  • 10oz beef patty
  • Apricot mustard
  • Blackened mashed potatoes
  • Fried pork tenderloin
  • Potato strings
  • Sautéed spinach and sun dried tomatoes


BOTM happens once a month. This is that once.

If you’re like us, literally the first thing you do when you wake up from sleeping in a bedroom with no air conditioning during a hot summer night is crave 10 oz. of ground beef.

So, that being the case, we present the burgers of the month at both of our locations!

Kuma’s Corner

It occurred to us that it was nearly criminal that these classic shredders didn’t have a burger in their honor so that being said we present:


  • 10oz Patty
  • Veal Schnitzel
  • Pancetta
  • Swiss
  • Roasted Garlic Mayonnaise
  • Sauteed Leek


Bang. Head.

Kuma’s Too

These guys haven’t done a release recently but, we’d like them to. We’d like them to schedule some practices and give us more volume. So without further ado:


  • 10oz Patty
  • Sweet Soy Sauce
  • Grilled Scallion
  • Fried Glass Noodles
  • Sauteed Shallots
  • Red Bell Peppers
  • Serranos



CLOSED SUNDAY (as you probably assumed) + GHOST Burger for Record Store Day

So, as mentioned, BOTH Kuma’s locations are closed Sunday to celebrate the 4/20 holiday.  There is another holiday scheduled for that day as well but we aren’t completely familiar with how it all works.

In addition, Saturday (tomorrow) is Record Store Day! And in conjunction with our friends at Reckless Records, we’ve got some very special lunch guests stopping by. Papa Emeritus of Ghost and his Ghouls will be joining us briefly Saturday morning (around 11:30am) before their appearance at Reckless Records Broadway!

In celebration of this momentous occasion, we are offering the GHOST burger for this day ONLY and ONLY at our Belmont Ave. location. If you didn’t get a chance to sink your teeth into this in October, take our advice and do it now. It may never be available again.

In addition, in honor of Reckless Records and Record Store day, bring your receipt in from any Reckless Records location dated 04/19/14 and receive 15% off your food purchase at either Kuma’s location (valid only 04/19/14).


Come eat!!

Just a ditty about some recent happenings…

JUST to keep you all updated, we have some things we are pretty damned excited about to share with you.

First: Burgers of The Month.

Kuma’s Corner  

you may recall we did a burger for these hashers a good while ago and we thought it was appropriate to pay them their dues for working so hard and releasing their new record “Whales and Leeches” (and, subsequently, appearing on the David Letterman Show! You guys nailed it!). So, we teamed up with our friends at Dryhop Brewing and the Illinois Craft Brewers Guild  to commemorate these dudes being awesome by doing a second burger as well as a beer in their honor! The burger description is below. The beer, which will only be available on tap at Kuma’s locations and at Dryhops brewpub ( 3155 N. Broadway, Chicago) is an 8% Imperial Red Ale called Reverse Thunder and we couldn’t be more excited. This is the first of three collaborations we’ll be doing together so keep your eyes peeled for those over the next couple of months.


  • burger
  • housemade jalapeño beer cheese
  • Cain and Able battered Onion rings
  • housemade bourbon barbecue sauce

Kuma’s Too

A lot of you are fans of the band Mastodon and for good reason. We’ve had a burger in their honor for years now. But, did you know that before Mastodon a couple of these gentlemen were in an enormously underrated band that was blowing minds of small club goers as early as 1992? That band was called Lethargy. We pay the following homage to them:


  • burger
  • fried bacon
  • mustard braised turkey breast
  • spicy ricotta cheese
  • oatmeal stout battered and fried crimini mushrooms

Second: As we mentioned previously, Kuma’s Too now offers delivery! Seven days a week you can have beef delivered to your door. Our delivery window is 4pm to 9:30! It’s snowing and it’s cold and you know you’d rather sit inside and watch tv and gorge on beef than setting up chairs in the street to drive over and pick it up. So let us do the work for you! Go to and search for Kuma’s Too or, just click HERE and place your order tonight!


Closed for the holidays, Kuma’s Too Delivery, Etc.

As we are every year, Kuma’s Corner and Kuma’s Too will be closed on Christmas Eve, Christmas day, New Years Eve, and New Years Day. Make sure you fill up on beef and whiskey to hold you over on those days and we’ll see you back at our normal operating hours afterwards!

Also, a very exciting note, Kuma’s Too is now delivering! We’ve partnered up with our friends at Grub Hub to deliver our burgers to your door! Please note, at this time, this service is only available from Kuma’s Too. Go to Grub Hub ( when you don’t feel like leaving your couch because you’re watching reruns of Much Music and let us bring the beef to you!
