The following two may not be running specials but I highly recommend them for their cheeseburger prowess.
Billy Goat
Various Chicago Locations
Home to the legendary, "Cheezborger", Billy Goat serves up a no-fuss cheeseburger that's become a Chicago icon.
Au Cheval
800 W Randolph St
Chicago, IL 60607
Au Cheval has mastered my favorite burger in town. Options include a single or double patty with a fried egg and thick-cut peppered bacon add-on. I strongly suggest the egg and bacon add-ons. You won't regret it!
