Do you offer catering?
Where does your beef come from?
At Hax, we use an old family recipe to grind our own burgers, fresh daily. We use “butcher’s only” cuts, which are not typically found in other burgers. That’s why our burgers are so unique. And they are always served fresh, never frozen.
Where do you get that amazing dark rye bun?
We bake it ourselves by hand everyday, using an old family recipe.
Are all your pies homemade?
Yes, we make all of our tasty pies in-house.
How much of Hax menu is made in-house?
Almost everything! We grind our own burgers, bake our own bread, and make virtually everything we serve from scratch.
Do you have a kids’ menu?
Of course! With things kids like, like burgers and fries, and things adults like, like organic milk.
Are dogs welcome on your sidewalk cafe?
They sure are! Pooches just have to be kept on lease, and sit at their master’s feet.
What about healthy fats?
At Hax, we cook our burgers the old-fashioned way, using natural beef tallow from Slagel Family Farms in Fairbury, Illinois. Rich in healthy fats, natural beef tallow preserves and enhances the real beef taste of our burgers.
Are there any nuts in your facility?
You mean besides us? Well, we use nuts in some of our salads, and some of our other specials. Our sister restaurant, Gordo’s Homemade Ice Cream Bars, also uses nuts. So Hax is not a nut-free facility, but the vast majority of our menu items do not contain nuts.
Which allergens do we need to look out for?
Gluten, dairy, and egg allergies, along with a limited exposure for nut allergies.
Do you have gluten-free options?
Yes! We offer a gluten-free bun, or a lettuce wrap. Most of our salads are gluten-free as well, if you choose oil & vinegar dressing.
How about vegan options?
Our homemade veggie patties are a popular vegan option. Enjoy it on it’s own, or wrapped in lettuce, without Hax sauce. Our salads are wonderful vegan options as well. We also offer a homemade vegan chocolate cupcake, and we are working on a vegan shake!
What is Hax sauce?
Hax sauce is mayo-based, with a few other secret ingredients which make it absolutely delicious.
Do you offer beer, wine, and cocktails?
All three! At Hax, we recognize the importance of a burger and a beer. Pair one of our delicious local burgers with a delicious local beer, 8 of which are on tap. We also serve wine, sangria, and frozen mai tais, which can be enjoyed on our sidewalk café. On weekends, we make a mean bloody mary—which goes great with a Chicago Bears game.
Insiders’ Tip: Everyday, Hax has a different drink special. Check out our Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram pages to keep updated.
