The Shelby
Creative burgers, baked potatoes & beer
American · Humboldt Park · $
Burgers and baked potatoes, both with the same creative topping options, pair with a full bar and plenty of brews at this laid-back Humboldt Park corner hangout. The down-home setting has a roadhouse feel with denim and dark wood, a long bar and a seasonal patio.

Just left this place for the first time. Damn! The food is amazing! I had the house beef burger and it was amazing! And the duck fat mustard... Legit. My wife had the Animal Fries which were also crazy good! It has a cool, low key vibe to it. I was really impressed with the quality of food for the price. It was a little over $50.00 for the food and 2 beers /2 cocktails. I would say on par with any downtown burger place, for 1/2 the price!

Ordered a lamb burger, they were out. Switched to the veggie burger. Dry and crispy, very thin, maybe 3 tablespoons of condiments and toppings. Hilariously a skewer was stuck through it as if there was any danger of it coming apart. When served it looked like just a plain bun on a plate with nothing inside. And for this, $15. I was with two others, we ordered a large fries to share. The burgers came, no fries. Server said nothing. I thought he forgot to put in the order so I asked. He said he did place the order but since they had run out of one of the sauces we ordered they needed time to make it. Not sure why he wouldn’t mention that when he brought the burgers. At least 10 minutes after our burgers were gone they finally came. Limp and greasy, fried at the wrong temperature. Sauces were bland. Difference between curry ketchup and regular ketchup was almost non existent. They did end up taking the fries off the tab (we hadn’t asked them to). For a place with such a limited menu it should be easy to do much better. Would not return.

Same owners, new look. I guess? Liquor and beer is the same as Haywood. Cocktails are slightly different than Haywood. This is now more burger and craft beer focused. I adore the animal fries and I decided to make my own burger. Wasn't disappointed! The burgers were the perfect size! I definetly would come back.
