Great burger, sad that they closed
This will forever and always be my favorite place for a burger. No one can ever dethrone them! Their memory will live on!
Was good while it was open
Best wings around.
An excellent burger place known for heavy metal and punk music. I am truly sad I came to this location only to find out they are out of business.
METAL AND CHEESEBURGERS!!! Whats better?!?! Excellent atmosphere and service. Prices are kinda jacked, but its worth a visit once in a while. I tried the Stoned Warden. Effin incredible! Id say the food is better than Kumas for sure. More...
Love the theme, the burgers are legit!
Food was great! Friendly staff.
Great burgers. Sad they're closing. Waited about 40 min to get sat. They're closing for good Friday.
Consistent, high quality food and service, an atmosphere of metal and all the cozy jail amenities, such as prison cups and chow trays, with a most genuine staff, top shelf booze, and burgers to make vegetarians weep, unless they get the veggie burger! The only place, I've been to, in Chicago, that has rammstein, metalocalypse, 'tallica, Bevis und butthead, and iron fruckin' maiden on cue at all times... one rule... "don't be shity".... More...
Great burger and good service. The posession of shrooms was on point.
They took away the deep fried Mac and Cheese appetizer. #DamnYou Portions still plentiful and food was still fantastic.
Lock up everyone who doesn't like this place!
Lockdown continues to produce good burgers along with friendly service, and good music.
Food was excellent. The Burger's we're on fire ...
I had the cheesiest smile on my face the whole time i was eating. Try the Fat Elvis it's good weird to the fullest
Amazing burgers with a great staff. One of my favorite burger joints in the area
Good burgers. But overrated. The server was incredibly friendly and he had a New Japan Pro Wrestling t shirt! Awesome guy!!
Muy rico todo hasta el ambiente
I love Lockdown...great burgers!
Mr. Nicholas Leporno
The big guy serving us couldn't of been nicer .. the food was good for a bar .. atmosphere different but I liked it !@
Great Burger, but the drinks needed more of a push.
Great food, fake atmosphere
My food was great, my beer was alright, but thats my fault. Came a lil later so we got a table fast and our food. Great job guys
Get the warden you wont be disappointed. Unless your name is Jessica Contreras.
Delicious burgers, great staff, and amazing sweet potato fries.
Delicious burgers and wings.
Best burger in Chicago
In a world that's gone to cookie cutter no talent music this place represents the good days where bands fought for the top and they actually played music and not playing some prerecorded tracks that someone else did. It's an eclectic mix of goth and metal and the people are great. Good food too if your there for that as well. The music is mostly metal from the last 40 years, all good stuff.... More...
Good burgers, and metal
Love the burgers, sandwiches, sides and apps and they have very good and friendly service.
Jorge & Nena Sanchez
This place has the 3 Gs, Good food, Good music and Great customer services.
Very yummy fatty burger.
Great food and service
Excellent customer service. Best bar in town
Pretty damn good! Food and service are great and the crazy heavy metal-jail theme with heavy-death metal music playing loud and proud is killer! Didn't try any of their beer or other drinks but they do have a huge selection.Prices on food are a bit high but the quality and quantity are definitely there. Overall a great experience! Will definitely be back if in the area in the future! More...
Food was awesome. Could be a little warmer inside.
Great food and amazing service, ask for Omran he will take care of you , he provides amazing service,highly recommend
The mac and cheese was amazing. I totally underestimated it.
This place has AMAZING food! Their turkey burger is so tender and flavorful, and the mac and cheese is delicious as well. I came with 3 friends and we all loved our food. It has a rugged quirky jailhouse atmosphere. Thatcher was our waiter and he was so nice and friendly. The only thing is the service was a little slow as he seemed to be the only worker in the whole place around 1-2pm. But still would absolutely come back. More...
Great food and always a seat available on weekdays.
I love going for the "fat Elvis" burger So delicious!!! With peanut butter and caramelized banana pieces and bacon
Best burgers in the city and excellent service, never a let down
The food was awesome as usual. We sat on the patio with our dog and our server could not have been nicer. He even brought out a nice big bowl of ice water for our pup.
Burgers are good
Doing the dark lords work with their hangover curing burgers. A++
Lockdown is an above average burger place although I feel like the quality of the meat has gone down a little bit in the past couple of years. Still, they make a good burger and have a decent selection of other snacks and foods that make it worth the visit. Beer selection is fairly average in terms of draft stuff, but they do have a few good things on tap.My only complaint with Lockdown is that even when the restaurant is nearly empty they often jack up the volume on the music. I get that hard rock / metal is the theme, and frankly it's some of my favorite music, but when there's barely anyone there anyhow, I'd prioritize my ability to have a conversation with my company over blasting the tunes. More...
Mr. Meinl Vinyl
Cool, edgy place to grab a drink and some tasty grub in Ukrainian Village while catching a live band or heavy music videos being played on the flat screens. My bandmate and I brought our wives to check the place out and to drop off our demo for a local band event they're having to get bands names out there. I had the "Possession of Shrooms" burger with a portabella mushroom on top of a killer beef patty and goat cheese, mac n' cheese as the side. Staff was awesome and helpful. Thanks Lockdown, you guys rock!!! Observer the band. More...
Killer burgers and Mac n cheese. They have sailor Jerry and good service....what more can a girl want? Been here at least 15 times and have even celebrated a few anniversarys here.
LOVE THIS PLACE.
Really good food
This bar makes me happy
At first glance this place isn't much but the fare and the familiar feeling make up for it. I had a small problem with my chicken strips (only cuz I like hem so crispy when you night into them dust comes out) the mngr came out personally and got them to my liking. I will be back often!!!
Great for sitting outside, burgers are good
Some of the best burgers in Chicago! Also, I'd argue they play some of the best music too
Delicious craft burgers and solid beer list but a tad pricey.
Love this place! Food and beer is always great!
Great food. Amazing service. A little loud, but the food really made it worth it.
Fantastic burgers, wish we lived in Chicago so we could try them all! Amazing staff. Will have to come back to Chicago just for Lockdown!
Sometimes there's a wait, but when the weather is nice there's an outdoor area. The food is fun and different and very tasty. They play loud music so if you don't like that maybe order something to go? There's a bar with beer and liquor, not sure if they have wine. More...
Best burger and staff
Without a doubt, this place offers great burgers. They offer a variety of combinations. The prices are a little higher but they do make the best burgers. I highly recommend it.
Good food and service. I would rate it a full 5 but the music was too loud and I couldn’t hear the people at my 4-top table.
use to work there
Great food and nice beer list
Metal burger mayhem
Lockdown is a staple in my diet when folks come to visit. Can't go wrong with the burgers or beer selection.
I travel 35 minutes at least twice a month to eat here. Love them!!!
The Lockdown Warden burger was phenomenal. Very cool place. Lockdown and The Bad Apple have the best burgers around.
If youre in the area, cant beat it.
Great burgers and great staff. Blows away the other Metal burger joint.
Very creative burger menu
I will never get enough of this place. Every time I come to this side of town I come here first.
Great beer. Great burgers. Great music.
Their burgers are huge a.f.!
MRS McCauley ANN
My first time coming to this great place i would def go again
Best burgers ever
Holy hell, I could get fat eating at this place.
Unique place! My burger was fantastic and mamy of the songs/videos played took me back to my younger years as a closet metalhead.
molten metal cheese burger and duff goes down like a beluga whale on the slide. can't get a seat at the other place? get here.
The best burgers and great music. I visit this place whenever I'm in the city and I miss it while I'm gone.
Rocking music, incredible burgers. A must if you are touring the Windy City! Treat yoself.
Burger was amazing great server too.
Looking for a premium burger. One place, line too long. Went to Lckdwn. No waiting but they have to make it. Got the Warden. Quite possibly the best burger I've ever had. Ever. & original. Very cool ppl working there with good attitude. Thanks. More...
That burger is called " The Death Sentence"... Do I need to say more
Best burgers i have ever eaten, even to this day!!
Burgers are amazing, best fries around, great beer selection.
Love this place. Their burgers are great!
Excellent. Better than Kumas.
The impossible burger here is one of the very best in the city. Service is also fairly good here as well.
They were out of a lot of ingredients so some of the menu items weren't available. The food was very tasty though.
Great food ! Love the chicken tenders
I go here at least once a month. Burgers aren't compared to Kuma's, they are completely different. Good drafts and bartenders are super cool, so don't judge a book by its cover! These guys also own Fatso's Last Stand on Chicago. Which I also highly recommend. They play all the metal classic videos on all tvs. Baby Elvis burger More...
Bad ass bar with amazing food! Just like our Black Sky Brewery in Colorado only burgers and great drinks instead of pizza and beer. Playing gojira videos on the TV's was an additional bonus. More...
Best burgers in town! Definitely recommend it!
Great service! Great food! Great music!!
The sandwich was good . Food is pricey.
This is one of my favorite burger bars! Try the fat Elvis and enjoy the music.
Hmmm, surprised to see this is supposedly "prison themed". I can't imagine a prison that has TVs blasting heavy metal videos nonstop. I would describe it as a heavy metal bar. Excellent cocktails. Foodies I know who've eaten here say the food is excellent quality as well. I'm not a fan of heavy metal, but the wall of sound and low key chill atmosphere create a relaxing vibe. More...
Great food & good selection of craft beers on draft. The place has that friendly local bar feel that is hard to find. Bartenders are helpful and attentive.
TRY THE ELVIS BURGER. peanut butter on a burger Who would have thought? Yums.
everything was deliscous
Better than Kumas, there I said it.
Amazing burgers! Loud AF but its a bar, A bit cramped but its a bar. I wish they expanded to a burger Restaurant
Loud death metal and kick ass burgers. I dig on the wings too. Will be back.
Epic place!!!! Signature burger is delicious!!! And the drinks!!!! Hot damn!! This man knows his stuff he is knowledgeable and even though he is tending bar and serving this guy knows how to work a room!!! Thatchu you rock!!!!! The berry margarita is epic and the jalapeño infused tequila with berry syrup!!! If you love well seasoned food with good flavors!!! Craft drinks, epic service come here!!!!! I love it here!!! Will defy come back!! More...
Awesome place with great selection of beer and Burgers that will keep you coming back for years !
Great food and beer
Cant beat Tues night industry nite with the fabulous staff!!!...never a let down! Always fun! Check it owt
Awesome burgers and great happy hour
Heavy Metal bar with a Prison theme. Really good and creative burgers, custom Mac and cheese is the hero here. It can be loud. Summertime outdoor seating is the best. More...
Great food and service
Love love love the " Good Behavior " burger
Cruelty to animals is a fkn amazing burger!
Amazing burgers, good beers.
Have been here many times and continue to go back for my federales burger. They have other great burgers on the menu, but I'm stuck on one. Love the fried pickles, there a must. Great beer selection. Friendly staff. Fast service. They usually have a metal style music on tvs... could be a concert or music videos. I'll be back More...
The best spot for drinks and food in Chicago!
Metal + Beer + Meat = Rad
Great bar...but not a metal bar.
Beyond Great original burgers reasonably priced. Try the Lockdown Warden! Great drinks and service too. Served up in an Industrial metal atmosphere that is fun and comfortable! Highly recommended!
Don't hate em because they're another Kuma's. Possession of Shrooms, Border Patrol, and the Lockdown Warden are all beastly belt-busters but still manageable and can be eaten without a fork. Get the sweet potato fries and enjoy an exceptionally good beer list while watching metal videos. More...
Haven't had it, just want to earn people it's not open on mondays or something to that effect.
Best burgers I’ve ever had. Hands down. Creative menu that doesn’t sacrifice quality. Nice staff and a unique atmosphere. Prepare for loud music. The patio is great when the weather is nice too. More...
Excellent drinks and burgers!
One of the spiciest burgers I've had
Possession of Shrooms.
Absolutely killer hard rocking bar and restaurant. Limited seating, awesomely loud music, hilarious jail-themed menu. Offers up the Impossible burger for vegetarians at a can't-beat price. Easy way to get out of your comfort zone and have a great time. More...
Great service beer and food!
Best burger and one of the best Mac and cheese in the city. If you're not a metal person don't worry, awesome inviting atmosphere.
Not from the city... But worjing down here. Always have been a huge heavy metal fan. Driving by I saw the mural on the wall and the Eddie (Iron Maiden) on the door. Went there next day for lunch. I wish I could give more than 5 stars. Not only was it the best Burger I literally have ever had, but the atmosphere was awesome. Bar tenders were totally cool and laid back and there was a Judas Priest concert playing on all of the TVs. Will be back for sure next week! More...
The best burgers and really good drinks
Super friendly place with great decor and even better food and drink!!!
The Lockdown bar & Grill is 10 minutes away from my house. I go there all the time. Was the after the Testament show Tuesday night with my brother Mike and we had a ball. I love the music and the food is good. great place to take a date (If she's a rock chick) More...
Kristen Becka Marie
After stumbling upon this place when we didnt know about another bar's 12 dollar cover for NOTHING, we enjoyed great service, drinks, and food. Will definitely come back here for more! More...
Delicious wings and great service. You will not be disappointed l!
I Love Lock Down Bar and Grill!! The food Is always great the servers always attentive and fast. Mac Cheese burgers are great!! I'm disappointed they stopped half priced Tuesday's. I think Ir brought more people In and two of my friends stopped going because of that!! More...
No wait on a Wednesday evening, even though the weather was nice. Killer staff and burgers yummier than *gasp* Kumas. Highly recommend the macaroni balls as an appetizer. Thanks dudes! �
Excellent fat Elvis burger and great beer. Service was excellent and Chris was great to talk to.
I'm sad i don't live near by anymore, because I would seriously go there every week! Best burgers ever!
I came here about 2 years ago. Randomly with a friend and loved their Fat Elvis burger. Hadn't stopped thinking about the food and build your own Mac & Cheese, but I'm not in the area usually. Finally came back, with 4 more friends, and they nailed it. We all got something different and we were all so pleased. Amazing � More...
Fried pickles some of the best I've had! My burger was amazing! Loved the fries and mac & cheese! Fun atmosphere! Our waitress was very friendly, not close to home but I would go back!!
Great hangout spot! Great food, drinks & service!
Great atmosphere, awesome burgers, secret sauce is amazing, friendly staff, awesome music. What else do you need, right?
It's plainly obvious what other place they are competing against, but that's ok, LB&G has it's own special twist to their menu. They have enough of a variety of choices to pick from their menu, from the very simple to the extreme (aka The Arson). You will not be disappointed if you go. Great service. More...
Amazing burgers, staggering variety, great service, and some of the best mac n cheese I've ever had in my life! The only drawback is that they're way too expensive. They provide high quality and specialty ingredients of course, but in general I'm wondering when Chicagoans will say enough is enough and certain food has absolutely no reason to cost $20 or more; but I suppose inflation happens and I am old lol. If they lowered their prices I'd be a repeat customer though! More...
Good food and good service. Definitely a must-eat.
A BACON infused patty, the center is filled with a massive quantity of MERKTS Cheddar Cheese, on a buttered and toasted bun or pretzel roll!! THE LOCKDOWN WARDEN BURGER knocked me right off of my chair!! If you are a cheeseburger fan, this place needs to be on your LIST! Lockdown Bar & Grill!! Had one of the best days of my life hanging with PJ the owner and that was BEFORE I had this BURGER!! Get here now!! They are located on Western Avenue in Chicago. If you dig Metal, Insane food and an amazing bar then this is your OASIS!! Subscribe to my You Tube channel " A Biker Dude" to see the Lockdown video! More...
Everything was amazing!! The War Pig burger of the month is huge and delicious!!
Awesome burgers and great staff. Had the Federales burger and I would definitely recommend this place to everyone.
Great time, great people, great music and food, especially excellent owner!
Our server and food were outstanding. Csnt wait to go back and max out!!!!!?
Coolest spot in town now doing smoked bbq and regular free, live shows! Awesome!!
Best burger I've had in a long time! Six of us had food and drinks in this fabulous little place. Heavy metal music on bunch of TVs was great. Service was great too. But the burgers! Can't say enough. Visited from RI. WE'LL BE BACK! More...
Deanna Kassal Swanson
Best fries and food around. Great burgers and cool staff! Love this place�
Jordan Leigh Diers
Burgers were differently awesome but it took over 10 min to get a draft beer let alone they were out of a lot of liquor.
Lockdown is my second favorite burger joint in Chicago. Sorry Lockdown, Kuma's still takes 1 although you are extremely close. I had the Fat Elvis burger for the first time. Very creative and tasty! More...
This place is awesome! Great food, music and environment. Check this place out this weekend!
This place rocks .
Great atmosphere. Great staff
I recommend the Federali burger and chorizo Mac and cheese.
Watch for weekly specials .
Installed the A/C when it was built. Went back when it opened. Food was on point. Definitely on my list when I visit Chicago.
The Bone Collectors (wings) were fantastic, I ordered the Good behavior (turkey burger) , Jorge had a Citizens Arrest and washed it down with many icy Modelos and I had a fireball shot... the bartender was phenomenal and so patient with the questions we asked. Recommended this to friends and family. I can’t wait to go back!!!! ��� More...
Wow first time eating here the other day and had the best burger ever. Service from Vanessa was top notch and there was no wait to be seated. Music was awesome will definitely be back again More...
Parking is meh but what can you expect in Chicago? Food was fantastic, staff was engaging and attentive. Great tunes (if you’re into rock and heavy metal) and had the Hawks game and then the NFL playoffs on one of the main TVs. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a top notch burger and a good beer and interesting cocktail selection. More...
The service and the food was great,the music was ok,not the kind of metal i listen to but oh well,doesn't matter.
Went for the first time a couple of weeks ago and the place rules! Priest on the tele the whole time and service was awesome. Def a new fav spot whenever I'm back in Chicago ��� More...
The Lockdown is a place for the Rocker, and Soc alike.
Great food, a wide array of liquor, and some local microbrews, make it a place for the young at heart.
Got a chance to play at Lockdown this Saturday. Absolutely awesome time. The staff is great, the food is absolutely killer. Really fun hanging out at a MetalHead burger bar that knows how to do it right. Can’t wait to come back on a much more frequent basis. Support local metal and business. I’m sold man. More...
This place is awesome. I want it to be my home away from home. Staff is phenomenal and friendly. Atmosphere fantastic. Its metal but inviting to all. Food is delicious and the beer choices are top notch. I cannot wait to go back. Thanks for everything. More...
Luis M. Parra Rodríguez
One of the best burgers in Chicago. Love the style. Good music.
This place was on my list in order to find the-best-burger-in-Chi, I assume that because of too high expectations and too positive reviews I expected something extraordinary, but it was just a good burger in a good place.1. The music is only hard rock - kinda not my thing, but if you're a fan this place is definitely of you.2. Burgres are good. Not astonishing, marvelous, spectacular or whatever - just good.3. Personel is friendly, they like to talk, will help you with menu and drinks and what's more important they are not annoying 4. The decor is also catchy - not everyday you can have lunch in a cell (no jokes, they do have a cell) More...
The music was a bit too loud for me, but the food was delicious!
Awesome burgers and sweet potato fries!!!
There's just something about the Fat Elvis burger. The burger is a good size, comes with peanut butter but it's a welcome experience.
Omg the mac and cheese and the 'Warden' burger were TO DIE for. But be sure to split with someone - both were very generous portions!
My metal burger heaven. My favorite wedge, the Guillotine is gone but the burgers and mac and cheese Still Rock
Great people and great music!
Great service, food was given to another customer for pickup order, and without asking for it, they offered to comp my order. I was prepared to wait while they remade it, but instead decided to write them a nice review to pass the time! Thanks Lockdown! More...
Best burgers in Chicago and ever !!! I take family and friends here all the time and they always agree:) pretzel bun is amazing and I feel the new management has really improved the place and service
Dan and Ashley, Nuff said.
Awesome metal/jail vibe, classic music videos and the world's greatest Mac and Cheese!
Another great burger place. Delicious sliders
Best food. EVER. I get in fistfights defending the Fat Elvis' honor as the best burger ever.
This has the best rock n roll burgers. It's a theme based place and loud af, but you get a great experience and meal.
Las mejores hamburguesas de Chicago sin duda
Excellent burgers. Service can be a tad slow, so I can't give 5 stars... But the food is definitely delicious.
BEST MAC AND CHEESE in the city, bartenders super friendly and awesome
Had a great experience, awesome burger made just how I wanted with great flavor. Music was awesome. My waitress was great. Awesome place.
Great Burgers. Had the Cruelty to Animals. Loved every bite. Nice vibe, good Metal music but not so loud that you can't have a conversation at your table. Wide variety of beers and whiskey. I think i saw a couple of salads in the menu (in case you bring a date) but honestly, you shouldn't be here if you wanted a salad. More...
Decent place for rock lovers!
Wait for food is a little long, but the food is really good. The nachos are money
Burgers a great here. Pricey but good portion size. Atmosphere is more of a heavy metal place but great staff and food well worth it.
Amazing selection of burgers and beer. The music is loud but there's outdoor seating that's more peaceful. It's a diamond in the rough.
Went with my fiancee and kids around 445 on a Tuesday afternoon... Server "Day" was awesome... Totally attentive to kids needs - made menu suggestions - let us know specials right away... Burgers, wings, Mac n cheese - best around... I've been here both with and without kids a few times - I would recommend either way - might be a little loud later in the evening for littler kids More...
Bad ass burgers in a metal atmosphere. I hear the mac and cheese slays as well. Tuesday's are half priced burgers. A killer deal but be wary of long waits. Any other day/night enjoy a metaltastic burger without the wait. More...
Burgers are the best! Better than Kuma's! They have fun and different toppings and the burgers are massive. You can also choose a veggie burger, which is sooo good. There Mac and cheese and fries are great too. I've been going to this place since it first opened. It had gotten steep in pricing which is a bummer. Burgers are now around 15-18. They do have half off burgers on Tues, which is the only day I will go now that the prices are steep. They have a great selection of local and craft beers and daily drink specials. The patio is necessary as the music inside is super load. But this is a heavy metal joint so what do you expect. It's suprisely kid friendly if you bring some headphones for them or sit outside. More...
The food here is always great but sadly this time under new management the beer selection that I so enjoyed has lessened. Still a great spot to hit but truly hope they rethink having more beers or look into have weekly specialty draft brews on rotation.
Great burguers! A little more expensive than the average bar
It's a unique and fun place to eat a great burger
Food and the service was excellent
Delicious burgers and fair selection of beers on tap! Pricey but you get your money's worth! GREAT customer service! Dope atmosphere.
Great food and service
Great 80s rock/prison theme bar. Went there for lunch and wasn't disappointed with the food and cheap beers! Would definitely go back for late night live music
Great staff, good burgers and mac n' cheese. 80's rock music playing, but not so loud to be bothersome.
I recommend their burgers, Mac n cheese, drinks, staff and atmosphere. They have lovely outdoor seating.
The food was good but I would have liked it a lot better if the time I was there they had played more than the same artist the whole time. I suppose it would be cool if I were a hardcore fan of Rob Zombie, but personally prefer more variety. More...
I love it here. Their Mac and cheese is my favorite!
Our favorite! Wings are a go to every time.
Today I had the perfect burger. Enough said?
I've only had the luxury of being here once, but their burgers were phenomenal! The habanero burger was just fantastic. 10/10 would recommend!
First hours in Chicago and they gave be the best service.. great way to start a vacation.. best burger I had that week
Amazing burgers and interesting menu.
Great bar food and sports bar atmosphere
Was there yesterday and the staff is great. not totally family and baby friendly but still got good service from staff. We were the first to have the cookie w/ice cream.
The fries! The burgers! It looks a little gutterpunk, but do not let that fool you. The food is insanity incarnate! Only get the larger burger if you have the stomach of an elephant.
Max Van Byssum
I love Lockdown. To the point where I almost feel bad about how many times I go here. Of all the place in the world I have gone and all the things I have eaten, I honestly believe my favorite meal ever is an Elvis Burger at Lockdown. Great beer, Great burgers, Metal on Metal, it's what I crave! More...
Great local place.
Top 5 Burger joint down. Great atmosphere during the day with Rock music playing in background can get randomly packed but worth the wait ...And definitely get a few cake balls/pops ✔️ . More...
Would have given five stars, but since the recent change of the menu they have taken a lot off of it. Overall it's still a cool place especially if you like rock. The food is very good.
Unpretentious coffee house and wine bar. Friendly staff. The new chairs are more safe and more comfortable than the previous ones. I've been coming here since the week they opened, over fifteen years ago More...
Yummy burgers. Good drink choices.
Food is awesome.
The best burgers I have ever had!! And I've had every burger on the menu, not even a little bit ashamed of that. I will always recommend the fat elvis with a side of sweet potato fries if you are adventurous. The staff is fantastic too, in the 4 years I've been eating here, they have never dissapointed me. Also you better love rock, metal, punk, etc. if you eat here because they blast it on a daily basis. I love everything about this place! More...
Absolutely AMAZING Burgers! Mac-n-cheese is the best I've ever had! Sweet potato fries are the BOMB!This place is a "must stop" every time I go to Chicago!
Good burger. A bit pricey
Quite possibly the best burger in the city! Amazing fries and mac too. Good service, nice atmosphere- can't fault the place at all
Always a solid place for a killer burger and mac. Great drink options and cool atmosphere, service is usually good as well. Tuesday's are half price burgers I think. More...
Get the flight of burgers. the fat Elvis as a small burger is the best. As a big burger the ratios are off with to much peanut butter. Also the root beer is great and will sneak up on you...high alcohol content. More...
Some of the best burgers in the city with a fantastic metal atmosphere.
Lockdown served the best burger I have ever had at a restaurant anywhere. I highly recommend this place. The prison theme and heavy metal also give this place a unique character that is unmatched.
Delicious burgers enough said!
Great food, atmosphere and service. One star denoted for the prices.
Great burgers great atmosphere and just a great place to eat
The food is amazing!!
The home of the $14 burger. People like me are paying it so God bless them. We enjoyed it. The 10 oz burgers are juicy and tasty. The service was excellent, shoutout to the tall server, he was outstanding. The beer selection was very good, though not distinctive, just as many places are these days. Hope you like heavy metal, as it plays on the 10 or so tv screens. Also, a life size picture of Lemmie hangs on the wall so there's that too. More...
CARLEE / AMIGOLDwas the best server! I will be back everyone I come to CHI TOWN. NON STOP HEAVY METAL music videos! Love this place can't say it enough.
Really great burgers, almost always live metal music (some may not like that, but they can eat outside), a bit pricey though.
The Lockdown is FANTASTIC! I've yet to get something that I didn't think was phenomenal. Really creative and delicious flavor combinations and fantastic quality meats. Their fries are great, their mac and cheese it to die for, the waitstaff are super friendly ... I love it!The only warning is that they do tend to cook their burgers on the rarer side, so if you don't want medium rare you should probably emphasize that you don't want it pink. Both my partner and his father have had to send food back because it was undercooked to their preferences. More...
Fabulous burgers, fun atmosphere
The burger I ate, The Federales, was pretty good. My wife enjoyed her food also, but I feel it was missing something. The mac & cheese wasn't as good as I've heard it was. And the place was kinda cold so it didn't help my wife enjoy her experience. More...
Great burgers, service was a bit spotty, good music.
Great burgers. Delicious fries. The Fat Elvis Burger is amazing. Tried a few others, all good. Great ambiance and music.
Came here on the recommendation of a friend, was not disappointed, this place is right up there with Kumas for gourmet burgers.I had the Fat Elvis, OMG who would have thought bananas and peanut butter could be so good on a burger! Hoping to go back one more time before I leave Chitown More...
Amazing burgers and beer selection. The best burger place in chicago. Unique atmosphere. Great staff.
Great atmosphere, food, and drink specials. Staff is super awesome as well.
The burgers and sweet potato fries are my favorite!! Best cheat meal ever!! Lockdown never disappoints
I have only tried the Buffalo chicken sandwich here and it is awesome! The chicken feels and taste so fresh, unlike a lot of frozen to cooked chicken a lot of restaurants use. Whenever we are in the north side we make a stop here. They have outdoor seating available too during summer season. More...
The burgers are good, but I had the Electric Chair and the buffalo sauce (seemed like just frank's red hot sauce) was a bit heavy handed. The decor is straight metal and the speakers are pumping Mega Death and Ozzy all night. More...
Unbelievable burgers, solid quality and good service
Great food and Staff
Best Burgers Ever even without a Bun
Great as always
Changes they are making, to things that made them exceptional, will result in me no longer going except in a rare occasion. Used to be fantastic!
There are so many good unique burgers here. I got one with grilled leeks and shallots. It was incredible. Crazy cheap beer specials as well on the day that I visited. I like the fact that you can get 3 mini sliders of the chef's choice so you can taste multiple of the burgers. More...

Absolutely a great place, I love Metal but I was with a friend that is not into it, but she like the place pretty much, the music is not that loud and as I think of metal and punk heads we're polite. Great food!
I love this place...we only come on sundays cuz the music is a lil more chill than the rest of the week. But the food is AMAZING!!! Hands down BEST mac n cheese ive ever had! Burgers are deeeeelish! Atmosphere is awesome and the staff is great! More...
Good beer and great burgers. Tuesday has burger specials.
Creative burgers in a metal rock atmosphere. Try the arson if you dare!
Lockdown Bar & Grill is a fantastic burger joint, right up there with Kuma's Corner and Bad Apple. It is a heavy metal music themed bar, with the artwork, music and servers to match. The burger selections are all pretty heavy (metal) and pricey but half priced burgers Tuesday helps! The beer selection and drafts are all good with a nice variety. Give Lockdown a try, you and your stomach won't regret it! More...
The Cruelty to Animals is the best burger in Chicago. Always a solid draft lineup. Not a good place for conversation.
I've been to this place multiple times and every time the food has exceeded my expectations. Great service as well!
Love this place!
Burger s+ beer were top-god-damn-notch and the metal was a plenty. Heard everything from Deicide to Kiss. Huh!
Definitely one of more interesting places I had drinks. They were great, burgers were great, excellent music, I had great night here! You should definitely check this bar out. More...
An amazing atmosphere and fantastic burgers. They offer such taste and variation you can't possibly be disappointed.
Outstanding flavor, even my take home heated up lovely. Very impressed by beer selection.
Solid burger with good mac n cheese side. Food came out pretty quick on a busy Friday night, and service was good. I'll definitely return.
Went for the burgers, as they have an interesting menu of some unique combinations. Reminds me of Kuma's Corner, but not quite as good. Wasn't busy at all on a Saturday afternoon, so that was nice. Try the flight of mini burgers so you can get an idea for the different combinations. The menu has a prison theme, which is a bit odd, didn't really work for me. More...
Great over the top burgers. People will compare it to Kumas. I'd say it's better add you don't have to wait. Can be pretty loud but it's apart of the charm.
Best burgers in Chicago
Hands down the best burgers in the city!!! They have the best meats, fries, salads, and mac & cheese around!!!! Theme is different but it doesn't bother me at all!!!
Ask me if ya really care
Kick-ass, blaring rock music. Was only here for takeout after Lolla but back at the crib the burgers were intact and excellent. I opted for the Smash & Grab chicken sandwich because I love a good chciken sandwich. Don't get me wrong it didn't disappoint, not even in the least bit, but goddamn those burgers looked gorgeous. Will be back again next summer. More...
