I had never been to Back Alley Burger, but went there based on the comments here. And everyone is right, it's a really good burger. Great menu, good sides also. I still like Burgerwurks, but I know that I can't vote for a Brookfield joint in the LG Patch.

This place IS great and inexpensive
Brett Rush July 31, 2012 at 09:41 PM
Hands down, Back Alley wins this. Best-tasting burger around. A good second place is Burgerwurks on Ogden in Brookfield.

Palmers = Overpriced burger. Back Alley has best flavor, why, never frozen. Just the meat has the best flavor.

Back Alley Burger is the best. Fast, friendly service with a smile. Freshest ingredients and the sweet potato fries are amazing!
