Watch out for the drool on your keyboard.

Ever had a really bad burger craving? We know the feeling, as we've been in the grips of one for a solid week. What started as a simple hankering for meat, cheese and pickles has now grown into something much, much bigger, thanks to a gander at the menu for the upcoming Burgerfest at Rockit.

From Monday, June 1 through Friday, June 5, executive chef James Gottwald will offer a variety of burgers at both the River North and Wrigleyville locations. Choices range from the restaurant's standard offerings (the award-winning Rockit Burger and turkey, lobster and black angus variants) to more creative sandwiches incorporating pork belly, wild mushrooms, lump crab and more ($12 each).

Check out the menu after the jump, but beware -- a craving is bound to hit.
