Burger Colony is homed in the cozy former home of Chicago Burgerwurks which closed leaving many of us in the Western Burbs craving a good burger again. Burger Colony is a whole new business that opened in winter. having leased and totally renovated the Burgerwurks building. A short lived management change in March caused a little bit of a burp in business, when the food was changed to "quicker and easier" but the original manager is back and the original gourmet burgers and hand cut fries are back and better than ever. This project is "his baby" and he and his gourmet burger chef, Bilal Beniomar, are back in action.

Their specialties are burgers but they also have the famous Chicago dogs, prepared a number of ways, salad, chicken sandwiches and tenders and a fish sandwich and two vegetarian offerings which the locals tell me are great. They have a counter with eats in front or you can eat outside on the picnic table. It's a small place, and they're happy to serve up orders to go if you don't want to eat in.
Even better - we had more food than we could finish, plus large drinks and arriving with a $20 between us, we still left with some change.
Grrrrr, I wanted a Colony Burger!
