Best Burger Ever. Period.

I have worked near Sidebar for the past three years and have been there way too many times to count. The food is ALWAYS consistently great. I am a big fan of the Burger and Fries but will sometimes get the crispy chicken salad. I really can't say enough about the place. This is one of only a handful of restaurants that I frequent here in chicago. The only drawback is that they are usually slammed from 11:45 on so if I am running late they are usually on a wait. But I don't consider that a huge draw back as everyone in the area seems to be a big fan. Besides, that they try to turn the tables as fast as they can and you can tell everyone is working hard and not just standing around. Plus the food is fresh but it always comes out super fast I am a huge fan of this place if you can't tell :) If you are in the area on a weekday for lunch, do yourself a favor and drop in, it is definitely worth your time (and wait, if there is one).

Tater Tots!

Great tots, good burgers, a bit on the pricey side for lunch but high quality! Nice staff and quick service.

Good place for a business lunch in the loop

Consistent performer. I work around the corner, and end up eating at Sidebar probably once every 10 days. The chicken tortilla soup is delicious. The salads are very good. For an entree, I have had everything from a French Dip sandwich, Fish Tacos(sounds crazy but very tasty), and all were good.

Other part I like is that even though it is frequently packed, the service is top notch and the place knows how to get you in and out without much fuss.

Only negative, like pretty much every other restaurant in the loop, if you come right at noon, there is a line out the door. So, leave a little early...it's worth it.

Great southwest beef salad! I did not receive the level of customer service I expected.

Although I did not dine-in, during the brief time spent waiting on my food, the customer service was a bit unpleasant. Overall, I felt ignored. If you order the southwest beef salad, make sure to specify how you like your beef cooked. I will go back to see if they can reverse my first impression of their customer service.

Great drinks - plenty of privacy for an after-work spot

I love this place - great location in the loop and always a friendly server at the door. Drinks are reasonably priced and they have special things on the menu only avail for happy hour - I highly recommend the tenderloin salad - not what you're expecting but sure to love it!
