First Suburban Location with Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises’

First Drive-Through Set to Open at Touhy Marketplace in Fall 2014

(Chicago)- M Burger will soon offer its quick-service, easy-to-navigate menu of juicy Midwestern beef burgers, golden fries and low-fat ice cream in Skokie, IL. Set to open this fall in the newly constructed Touhy Marketplace at W. Touhy and St. Louis Avenues, M Burger is perfect for lunch, an afternoon snack or dinner.

The new location, the first outside downtown Chicago, will be equipped with a drive-through window, a first for any LEYE restaurant, as well as a larger outdoor seating area for warm-weather gathering and dining. Hand-dipped hard shell ice cream cones will be offered alongside a sundae bar filled with a variety of toppings to choose from.

The idea behind M Burger is a simple one. The first location was an easy, walk-up burger joint, carved out the kitchen of Streeterville’s acclaimed Tru, in what was once that restaurant’s chef’s table and pastry kitchen. Because real estate for the new concept was at a premium, with space available for only a griddle, a fryer and a shake machine, Chef Tim Hockett devised a small, easy-to-navigate menu offering less than ten items. The goal of each M Burger has always been the same: to be your neighborhood spot serving great burgers and sandwiches, with friendly, personable service. 

M Burger Skokie is located at 3654 Touhy Avenue. For more information, visit us at www.mburgerchicago.com.

Why can't the revamped DOWNTOWN SKOKIE pull in this type of business? Old Desiree lot, rotting

Sounds like this place will be worth the trying when it opens!
