Kuma's Corner
~ 2017 ~

Famous for:  Burgers, beer and metal. Their ethos is: Support Your Community.  Eat Beef.  Bang Your Head.

Founded by: Started by a guy named Mike Cain. It’s now owned by his brother Ron. Mike named the place after his dog, Kuma.

Thick Burgers. Heavy Metal.

The burgers here are thick, juicy, flavorful and creatively constructed.  Some unique toppings you might see on one of their burgers…bourbon poached pear slices, poblano corn relish, Belgian waffle strips, and maple syrup drizzle. They’re quite tasty. Kuma’s has won several awards for their burgers. They won the Chicago Tribune Diner’s Choice Award for Best Burger for Lair of the Minotaur in 2016 and the Food Network put them on their list of Best Burgers in the country.

Fun Foodie Facts:

  • Kuma (the founder’s dog) is an Akita. The name Kuma means “bear” in Japanese.  And that’s why Kuma’s logo is a bear! Boom. Mind blown.
  • They won the Chicago Tribune Diner’s Choice Award for Best Burger for Lair of the Minotaur in 2016.
  • They play metal here from open to close, and they try to get the word out about upcoming local metal bands on their social media, often asking their social media followers about new bands to listen to that they can play in their restaurants.
  • The Food Network put Kuma’s on their list of Best Burgers in the country.
  • Every month they select a charity of the month to give a significant donation to. Money for these charities is raised through burger sales and various events.
