Opened in Chicago in 2008, Epic Burger is a privately owned business founded by David Friedman, a Chicago resident since 1983. There are currently eight locations, six of which are in downtown Chicago neighborhoods with the two others located in Evanston, IL and Skokie, IL at the Old Orchard Mall.
Epic Burger’s big idea is to offer more people an opportunity to eat non-processed, all natural food at a reasonable price. At the same time we would like to stimulate thought around how food is raised, grown, transported, processed and packaged. We feel that the more people can increase their food IQ the better for their health and happiness, as well as the health of our planet. We chose the most iconic of American meals – hamburgers and french fries. Preparing these items without drugs, artificial colors and flavors, nitrates, phosphates, preservatives and numerous other additives found in our everyday foods, we can make it taste truly delicious.
We take the same approach and pride in our non-beef items like our all natural chicken sandwich, turkey burgers and portabello mushroom sandwich.
This is why Epic Burger is “A More Mindful Burger.”
