Evening snack

Great place to chill during happy hour. Cheap beers and great nachos. There was plenty of seating both inside and outside. Great service and pretty fast.

This food is not your normal burger and fries. There are serious choices of delicious burgers, interesting, to die-for mac and cheese creations along with other great pasta dishes. Fast, friendly and attentive service, too!

If you're a fan of Chicago-style pizzas, this is a good place to visit. The atmosphere is "Sports Bar" with a physical bar, HD TVs on every wall, pool tables and dart boards. We took the family out for dinner, and they had a nice section in the back that could seat all of us, which was nice for conversation.... More

Although there are many reasons to like Old Chicago's, we love it for the pizza. The Chicago Seven, which we tweak a little, is our all-time favorite. When you get the right pizza baker, and it is served promptly, the flavors all merge into a symphony in your mouth. Everything else about Old Chicago's is great, the beer tour, the... More

Stopped by on a Saturday at 11AM. We wanted to find a place with the Nebraska football game on. They had plenty of TVs and were not busy at all. There was an off putting smell when we first arrived, but couldn't quite figure out what it was. However, they longer we were inside, the less you smelled it. Our... More

This could have been an aberration; however, it's best to mention it. My wife and I had lunch at the Old Chicago College Ave. location on a weekday. It took 10 minutes for the server to come to us so we could place orders, and before we could hand her our menus she whipped around to ask the next table... More

A total fan of this establishment. The food, staff and the vibe is great. The location is in the heart of Fort Collins and the restaurant offers you several dining options from outdoor garage doors for the sidewalk cafe feel to a fun crazy bar or a more quiet dining experience.

I like the atmosphere and the food is almost always great. I love their cheesy fries! BEST I've ever had. They have some kind of garlic/nacho cheese on them; it's to die for! I've only had a time or two hear were I was unsatisfied with the service. It was very slow, almost empty and when we got our cheese... More

We came on a Saturday night for dinner and the place was not filled at all !!! In fact we sat out in the back patio. We were the only diners in the back. The three of us ordered a large deep dish and a salad to share. The salad was good, fresh & tasty. The large deep dish was... More
