25 Degrees offers a new twist on the traditional American burger joint.

What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.4

25 Degrees is a solid, dimly-lit burger and beer kind of spot in River North. We approve.

Ratings 7.0-7.5:These are your neighborhood standbys - the places that you’ll happily hit for some pasta or a quick salad, but not a restaurant you are bringing your parents or (god forbid) a date to. The true embodiment of good but not great.

The burger that I had was sooooo good! It was the one with pineapple. Loved getting a bottle of champagne for my mimosas. It was a little noisy but I'll def be going here again!

Possibly the best burger I’ve ever enjoyed.... and that’s saying a lot! The service is the icing on the cake... super friendly and attentive. If you’re in Chicago, you need to check this place out!

25 degrees has been a staple for my friends and I for Sunday brunch. Hard to beat $12 bottles of champagne! Our waitress did a wonderful job being attentive and personable. Food came out in a timely matter, and was delicious to say the least. The only problem with this occasion was how hot it was. We were sitting in the back corner, opposite of the bathrooms, near the bar. The waitress told us that the big doors up front were open to accommodate the party in the front but there was so much heat coming from outside that the AC wasn’t felt at all. We were all sweating the entire time during our meal, constantly using towels to pat ourselves dry and wiping the leather seats dry due to our legs sweating. It eventually cooled down slightly but by that time we were getting ready to leave. Really a situation that probably couldn’t be avoided due to accommodation being made for the party up front but an unenjoyable experience nonetheless.

Delicious food, but priced very high. Make your own burgers are going to end up being so expensive. It was a hot night and they had their garage door windows open in the front of the restaurant, which is where we were sitting. It was too hot for that. Barely any breeze and definitely didn’t feel any air conditioning from inside the restaurant. Was on the noisy side, but not unexpected for this type of restaurant. Overall the food is delicious, but the atmosphere needs work in the summer.

We went for their $12 bottles of champagne- probably one of the cheapest brunch places in the city.

Burgers were delicious....only mishap was, we went on a night for the $5.00 whiskey special...we ask for it in the rocks but wasn't told we would be charged for the rocks (ice)...we bought at least 6 so imagine our surprise when the bill came....the waitress was nice about it but we would have just liked to be told upfront and if we had known, we would have just ordered shots...but other than that, we will definitely return!

Our burgers were way over cooked, and they charged $2.00 extra for ice in my drink, which is ridiculous.

Went here on a Sunday for brunch. The wait time for food was super short. The meal was absolutely delicious, I cleared my entire plate. And the $12 mimosas was a plus! I’ll definitely be returning soon!

One of my favorite Chicago spots where I feel like a local. Feel in love with their velvet wallpaper, hip hop grooves and leather booths years ago when I couldn’t resist the lull of their infamous boozie shakes and OMG are they sinful. Took my girlfriends here for our last night and ordered the Salty Caramel and S’mores shakes for the table. What a blast. Didn’t want to leave without licking the glasses and listening to one more tune. Will always be back! Xoxo

Food was delicious! Had the number 3, it was not too spicy and great flavor. What took away from the experience was as soon as we put a fork down the staff was pretty much climbing on top of us to clear the table. It was towards the end of the day but a few times the guy was reaching over us to get stuff of the table.

This is a great restaurant, however, Open Table let me make a reservation on President's Day for a time that they were not open for yet. I had to stand outside for 20 min until they opened. This was disappointing.

The food and service is usually very good. Our burgers were not done to our liking and the server sent the wrong order and double charged us on our bill.
