There are two locations of Bop N Grill in Chicago, and the one in Rogers Park is the original. It’s a counter-service spot that does two things - burgers and bibimbap - and does them both very well. But we come here primarily for their burgers, which are just the right kind of hard to eat (i.e. sloppy but still manageable). Also make sure to get their fries topped with caramelized kimchi and cheese, which somehow manage to stay crispy the whole time you’re eating them.
