Poag Mahone's, 333 S. Wells St.; 312-566-9100, poagmahones.com If you can get past the slightly naughty name (which loosely translates to "kiss my rump" in Gaelic), come on into this laid-back place with good pub food and the best burger in the southwest quadrant (and, some maintain, the best burger anywhere). Said burger is a 9-ounce beauty, cooked to your liking for a mere $7.95. You and Alexander Hamilton can do a lot of damage here: A dozen buffalo wings are $8.95, and almost all the salads and sandwiches are under $10 as well. P.S. Monday nights after 3 p.m., burgers are just $2.50 (dine-in customers only), provided you spend at least $2 more on other stuff.
