Elgin Public House

For “better than average ‘pub grub,’” and service that treats everyone like family, head to Elgin Public House. Their pub-style restaurant features an extensive burger menu with a seemingly endless amount of unique options. Whether you’re craving a classic cheeseburger with the usual fixings or a specialty option like the Mac Attack or Fiesta Burger, Public House is sure to please. Planning a night out with friends? Be sure to check their website for details on their themed trivia nights and other fun events.

Beef Shack

You’ll find just two options on the menu at Beef Shack: a cheeseburger and a bacon cheeseburger. Rest assured, though, additional options simply aren’t necessary here, as the folks at Beef Shack have honed in on these classic options, delivering a level of perfection you may not have thought was possible. To take things to the next level, be sure to order their fresh-cut french fries and a milkshake on the side.

Beef Villa

Beef Villa specializes in burgers, hot dogs, and beef sandwiches, and their creations are so delicious, they’ve had to open three locations around Elgin to satisfy the high demand! Their house specialty is the Villa Burger, featuring classic burger toppings and a steamed kaiser roll.

Mr. C’s Hot Dogs and More

Every town needs a classic 50s-style diner, and in the Elgin area, that diner is Mr. C’s Hot Dogs and More. Aptly named, their Chicago-style dogs are the star of the show, but their classic hamburgers and cheeseburgers serve as the ideal understudy. Stop by to try one out for yourself and enjoy their classic retro interior complete with checkered floors, red vinyl seats, and vintage posters.

The Walnut Speakeasy

Among other incredible options at The Walnut Speakeasy, you’ll find a fully-loaded burger menu with unique options like a spicy Cajun burger and coastal-inspired California burger. Dining out with a non-meat eater? The Walnut’s menu also offers the meatless Impossible Burger. If you’re feeling daring, we recommend ordering the burger of the month and letting the Walnut surprise you with their hand-picked choice.
