Kuma’s started in 2005 with its flagship location at the corner of Belmont and Francisco avenues in Chicago’s Avondale neighborhood. From our origins as a corner bar with solid American bistro fare, we’ve grown to two locations that offer the finest burgers available on this planet or any other.
Our ethos is simple. Support your community. Eat beef. Bang your head.
We’ve been extremely fortunate to show host to thousands of dedicated eaters from locales near and far. As such, we feel it is our obligation to give back to the communities that support us and support our love for meat and heavy metal. So we encourage you to ask your server about the charity of the month and consider donating to what we feel are worthy and deserving causes.
We support purveyors that are local and homegrown. Which means we don’t carry Miller High Life and we don’t carry Budweiser. We encourage you to read over our menu and seek out information on the wide selection of rotating craft brews and spirits we carry year round. Our bars feature an exclusive selection of small label whiskeys and many other varieties of alcoholic and non-alcoholic libations as well as carrying the distinction of being able to offer several whiskeys on tap.
We also take great pride in supporting the Chicago heavy music community at large. Do yourself a favor and see what our city has to offer musically by supporting Emperor Cabinets, Indian, The Swan King, J’ard Loose, Jungle Rot, Himalayan, The Atlas Moth, Encrust and the many others that make up the rich heavy music landscape that makes this city amazing.
