My husband and I had just come into town from the Metra, and were looking for some lunch. We strolled past Epic Burger and decided to give it a go. First off, the interior is attractive and friendly, with lots of different table configurations depending on your group size. The staff here are SO friendly and helpful. They genuinely seem to like what they do, and that just made the experience that much nicer. The menu itself is pretty simple: burgers, fries, salads and shakes. My husband tried their original epic burger and I had the turkey burger, both with fries. They use high-quality items, and it shows in the product. The burgers had a nice flat-top crisp around the edges (but they still kept the turkey burger moist, which was great!), and we were especially big fans of the wheat roll (had nice oats on the top and wasn't dry). They had nice options for toppings. Their epic sauce doesn't push the sandwich in any particular flavor direction, but is tasty. The fries were crispy, skin-on spuds that weren't over-salted. The Peanut Butter milkshake was really well-crafted: it was rich without being over-the-top, and the consistency was perfect.
Is it the absolute best burger I've ever had? No. But it was a good lunch at a fair price for downtown, the service was fast and friendly, and I'd stop by again if I was ever in the neighborhood.
