Long wait, good food

Love the options for pizza, calzone, stromboli and salad. We had a new waitress who was attentive. But the wait seemed excessive. We'll be back and hope the timing for our visit was bad.

I love the Tavern-style pizza - Thin crust. There are always plenty of toppings. I'm not a beer drinker, but there are many varieties of beers. They have a

We celebrated our Snow Day by going to the Old Chicago lunch buffet, which normally we can't do because we're in school. The food was hot & had a nice variety of pizza, calzone, and pasta. Our drinks were promptly refilled by Kyle, who is one of the best servers around! We had a nice relaxing lunch and thoroughly enjoyed... More

This was our first trip to an Old Chicago restaurant and unfortunately for the quality and quantity of the food we received, it was a disappointment. We ordered a pizza, one of their specialty salads, plus two kids meals, and there was definitely nothing to rave about. Given that we were on a cross country trip, I don't believe we... More

Tried Old Chicago because of the location and was rewarded big time. We were seated quickly even though they were busy. Our waitress Lexie was very friendly and attentive. We tried the thin crust pizza and it was amazing. The crust was crisp and buttery and the sauce was sweet and spicy and was topped with just the right amount... More
