The Bad Apple

(773) 360-8406

4300 N Lincoln Ave

Chicago, IL 60618

One of the greatest things about America is that you can always get a relatively cheap burger in a fun setting, and that's exactly what you'll find at The Bad Apple. The Bad Apple is a bar and restaurant hybrid that serves everything from the classic burger to the mystical El Chupacabra complete with goal chili and guacamole. Who needs a fancy night out when you have El Chupacabra.

The Bad Apple is known for having creative burgers that actually taste good. You’ll find things like the Elvis’ Last Supper (with housemade peanut butter and bacon), or the Slow Burn, topped with spicy chilis, sauteed onions, bacon, and white cheddar cheese. And now their long list of burgers is available to-go, along with beer and booze.

And the practical thing to do is hit up The Bad Apple in Ravenswood. Let’s be clear: this isn’t some generic burger stand hiding in the middle of nowhere. Bad Apple is an excellent and popular neighborhood spot to grab a burger and beer - Ravenswood just isn’t as popular as the West Loop. There’s a whole menu full of burgers that has something for everyone, from a classic cheeseburger to Elvis’s Last Supper with bacon and peanut butter to The Cowboy Killer with egg, cheese, jalapeño, and baked beans on a pretzel bun. You really can’t go wrong, and even though The Bad Apple is often crowded, there won’t be a crazy wait.

Looking for a local spot to grab a burger and a beer with friends? If you’re in Ravenswood, go to The Bad Apple. Keep things simple with their regular Bad Apple burger, or try something more creative like a Slow Burn with sauteed spicy chilies or a Tomorrow Never Dies with bone marrow and black truffle aioli. This place is consistently busy, so prepare to wait (there’s a large bar area where you can do that).

The Bad Apple is a laidback place with creative burgers that actually taste good (rather than just trying to impress you with their weirdness). You’ll find things that might sound a little forced but really work - like the “Elvis’ Last Supper” (with housemade peanut butter and bacon). But our top choice here is the Slow Burn, topped with spicy chilis, sauteed onions, bacon, and white cheddar cheese.

This burger spot is offering its full menu for pickup and delivery. You can also have bottles of wine and beer delivered, too.

Order any of The Bad Apple’s burgers to-go, along with beer and booze.
