Weekends. Everybody's working for them, but they're too short and, often times, expensive. Well, if you're looking to extend the good life at an even better price, consider Big Chicks - an inclusive GLBT establishment in the Uptown neighborhood where a dollar can get you one of the best burger deals in Chicago.  

Mondays are home to "Buck Burger Night" and for just one dollar, you can order up a quarter pound burger and fries. For my vegetarian friends, there's also a meatless hot dog option available. The chefs at Big Chicks don't fool around, either. Each burger is served with all the fixings.

What you need to know about Big Chicks.

Big Chicks shares their space with Tweet, a tremendously popular brunch spot. One can expect a long wait during weekend mornings and the establishment does not accept reservations. But don't be discouraged by a half hour wait time. Grab a seat at the bar and sip what I would say are hands down some of the best Bloody Mary's in the city.

Tables are first come, first serve. Make sure to get there early. Grab a table and order your food at the small bar in the east room. By 7pm, the rooms are packed and the line craftfully snakes down the aisles. Big Chicks and Tweet are cash only, but there is an ATM available on site. 

Big Chicks is located at 5020 N. Sheridan Road and is accessible via the Red Line (Argyle stop), the 151 Sheridan, and 36 Broadway busses.
