Description of Monk's Pub

Monk's doesn't try to impress you. Essentially a beer-and-burgers joint that just happens to be in the Loop, you are welcome to take or leave its offerings, they couldn't care less. But judging by the overflowing lunch crowds, many an office worker seeks refuge from the daily grind in this dark and noisy chapel to the absence of pretentiousness.

The menu focuses squarely on hamburgers in a variety of styles, as well as other foods eaten with one's hands, and it rarely veers from this course. But this provincialism pays off since Monk's delivers consistently on its modest promise with excellent burgers and an utter lack of pompousness. The din of the room can make for challenging conversation, which is just one more reason to keep your mouth full.

Average cost: $10-$20
