You’re going to pass a few burger options at the food court in the center of Navy Pier before you get to DMK (including a very fancy McDonald’s). But keep going, because eventually you’ll reach this spot, where the burgers - which come in varieties like bison and green chile - are just as good as they are at the original Lakeview location. It’s imperative that you get one of their shakes, too.
