Schoop's Hammond, In Review (Chicago Vacation Series)

Whenever Fancy and I visit my sister in Chicago we head to the Horseshoe Casino in nearby Indiana.  That gives us an opportunity to have some delicious, old fashioned Schoop's burgers.

These burgers are fairly thin and browned around the edges.  Most of the ones featured are actually a double burger, but we all ordered a single.  They offered the typical burger toppings including full leaf lettuce and other fresh ingredients.

As you can see, they didn't skimp on the toppings.  Also, they offered your typical burger place shakes.

The burgers don't come accompanied by fries, but a single order serves two people.  They were thin, crispy, and delicious.

Our vegetarian had the egg salad sandwich, which she reported as being fine.  I don't know much about egg salad as this okapi hates eggs, but there appeared to be a generous portion, and the bread was nicely toasted.

The onion rings were perfectly fried with a nice breading.  Everyone enjoyed the Schoop's experience, and it's something you should definitely try if you're ever in the Indiana area.  Just keep in mind as a burger specialty joint, you're looking at around $10 for your burger, fries, and drink.  As a western new yorker, I know good burgers, and Schoop's ranks among the best.  This okapi gives them 4.5 stars.
