Actually looking forward to trying this place.
An all-natural hamburger chain plans to open its third restaurant in the West Loop, part of an expansion that could bring 10 new locations to Chicago over the next two years.
Epic Burger, whose tagline promises “a more mindful burger,” signed a lease at 550 W. Adams St. for what is to be its largest outpost to date, at about 3,300 square feet. Founder and CEO David Friedman says he aims to open the restaurant in June or July.
Chicago-based Epic Burger debuted in May 2008 at 517 S. State St. in the South Loop with a menu that shuns processed cheeses and yellow mustard and champions fresh beef, eggs from cage-free chickens and locally grown produce. A Lincoln Park restaurant followed last June, at 1000 W. North Ave. The organic, fast-casual concept sprang from a road trip that left Mr. Friedman craving a better alternative to the standard burger joints.

Epic Burger says it provides “a better burger experience,” offering all-natural beef with an assortment of environmentally friendly toppings — cage-free organic eggs, nitrate-free bacon and all-natural Wisconsin cheeses.
