Fire up the grills for the Midwest’s best Patty Party!

At least a handful of Chicago eateries will be partners in the tasty annual happening when Roscoe Village Burger Fest returns for its 15th mouth-watering year this July. Trust us when we say that they go to extraordinary lengths to impress burger aficionados.

When you add in two stages of rockin’ music, arts & crafts and the action-packed “Kids Zone” area, sizzling hot is the only way to describe this wildly popular Windy City food and music street happening.

In addition, over the weekend visitors even have the opportunity to vote for Chicago’s Best Burger!

A $10 suggested fest donation benefits the invaluable programs and services of the Lakeview Roscoe Village Chamber of Commerce.

2022 Burger Vendors

Byron's Hot Dogs

Don't be misled by the name! Family-owned-and operated, Byron's (with locations on Irving Park Rd. and on Lawrence Ave.) has been a Chicago fixture since 1975 with (trust us!) mind-boggling offerings far beyond franks. More than a dozen juicy burgers are on the menu. They include everything from double and triple cheeseburgers  to veggie, turkey and steak patties.

Declan's Irish Pub NEW!

This Old Town favorite is coming to Roscoe Village!  Hailed as one of the most authentic Irish bar experiences in Chicago, Declan's is known for their variety of drink options and their elevated food options.  Expect to see their classic burger on this year's menu along with an Old Town favorite -- the Wells Street Burger which includes 100% USDA Prime Burger with hand selected whole cuts of beef brisket, short rib, and local chuck topped with lettuce, tomato, Swiss cheese, Avocado, Bacon, fried onion strings, and house made Mayo on a Brioche Bun.  Enough said!

Epic Burger  NEW!

Epic Burger opened in Chicago in 2008 and today has seven locations. Five of which serve downtown Chicago neighborhoods and two which serve Skokie and Evanston. Epic Burger’s big idea is to offer more people an opportunity to eat non-processed, all-natural food at a reasonable price. Their beef and grilled chicken are both certified halal. By offering a premium product, we would like to stimulate thought around how food is raised, grown, transported, processed and packaged.

Fatso's Last Stand

Located on Chicago Avenue in Ukrainian Village, Fatso's started with the concept of a hamburger/hot dog stand and took it to the next level. It's a snack bar, a family place, and a late-night food haven. Be sure to check out their mouth-watering single (or double) "Fatso Burger". 


Lola's Coney Island  NEW!

Established in 2019, Lola’s Coney Island may sound like a hot dog joint but they're oh so much more. Owner-operator Jesse Fakhoury is the force behind Lola’s, named after his four-year-old daughter. Jesse was born and raised in Detroit, MI and after years of living in Chicago, Jesse saw the opportunity to bring the Michigan Coney Island dog to the people of Chicago.  But his menu has expanded since to include sandwiches, salads and burgers.  Be sure to try their Lola's Burger which includes diced pickles, diced onions, Hoffman's cheddar and housemade aioli on a sweet Hawaiian bun.

Select Cut Steakhouse    

Select Cut has been a proud Burger Fest vendor from Day One. Located on Halsted Street near Diversey, they have a well-deserved  reputation as a friendly, casual neighborhood eatery known for its top quality steaks and burgers. This includes both their award-winning steak burger and tasty namesake "Select Cut" burger. Seafood, ribs and more are also on their menu. Family-owned and operated, the owners take pride in making sure every customer is pleasantly pleased with their broad menu offerings. 

The StopAlong NEW!

The StopAlong opened in August 2016, providing the neighborhood with a casual, throwback pizzeria and bar just steps from the 606. The playful and nostalgic atmosphere of The StopAlong harkens back to childhood and puts a smile on the face of young and old alike. We serve the best NY-style, thin crust pizza & griddled burgers around. Everything is made from scratch daily using only high-quality, fresh ingredients.
