Chicago Cheeseburgers, IL

Updated: Jul 21, 2020

Billy Goat Tavern, established in 1934, is a burger institution in Chicago, known for its double cheeseburger made with thin, all-natural beef patties served on a kaiser-roll bun. The original restaurant — which was a tavern across from the Chicago Stadium — was born when a goat fell off a passing truck and wandered into Greek immigrant William Sianis' tavern. Sianis adopted the goat, grew a goatee, and was nicknamed Billy Goat.
