The Zagat Review
"Like big brother" Au Cheval but "without the wait" , Brendan Sodikoff’s cozy spin-offs deliver "awesome" , "top-tier" burgers "cooked just right" on a "simple menu" featuring basic toppings, fries and "tasty" milkshakes; the "relaxed" surrounds "can get crowded" (some say they're "better suited for takeout" ), but "fast service" and "well-made" cocktails add to the reasons most are "impressed."

We have been fans of the Cheval Burger spots forever. This new location on the river might be the best one. The view and the location is magnificent. The burgers and fries are better than the Small Cheval on Milwaukee. Maybe because it's not as crowded after the Loop lunch crowd leaves the place empty for the night.

The sister restaurant to Au Cheval serving up their famous (yes, as good as advertised) hamburger, fries and milkshakes. The line here gets really long. But even when starting at he back of the restaurant, only about fifteen minutes from getting in line to getting food. The slowest part about the line are people who get up there and don’t know what they want. (You spend ten minutes standing in line and when it’s finally your turn you don’t know what you want? These people should lose their places in line! Lol) The staff is very friendly and works fast to get he lunch crush served. Oh, did I mention the burger is as good as advertised? Moist, juicy, flavorful. Worth the wait.

Absolutely loved my time there. Had to be one of the best burgers I've ever had. We were greeted as soon as we walked in. Very helpful & friendly staff. Will definitely be back.
