We had dinner and drinks twice during our stay in Chicago. Service was very friendly both nights and dinner was fine the first night, but the second night we opted to try the deep dish pizza. As it is famous Chicago food we had great expectations. Not sure if we just don't like Chicago-style pizza or if Exchequer's doesn't do... More

Famous for its Deep Dish Pizza - which is delicious btw. Even more famous for receiving nobody less than 'Al Capone" in the past. Therefore, inside it you are able to see History told us by the beautiful Chicago, exhibiting posters of the best of Chicago's must-to-know facts. Speaking of the pizza again, the dough is excellent and the pieces... More

Pub food -- burgers, soups, salads -- all consistently good. I especially like the hummus platter and have it several times a month for lunch. Their French onion soup is great, but not always on the menu. They have seasonal specials. Their Greek chicken sandwich special is full of great flavors. Just tried the triple-decker three-cheese grilled sandwich/soup special and... More

So every place in downtown Chicago was jammed with rugby folks from New Zealand, and after waiting a few other places to get no where, we wandered into Exchequer. Amazingly we were seated almost immediately. As there were five (5) of us I was surprised but also pleased. Service was good from an overworked waiter, and everyone seemed to be... More

We had the Chili Bomb x 2 and garlic bread. We love garlic so this was a little mild for us. The Chili Bomb was filling and lots of it. Crispy waffle fries under and on top and lots of cheese with a burger inside (no bun) WOW. Service was slow, food was awesome

Dislikes - None Likes - The food quality was excellent and the prices were reasonable. It is right downtown and was convenient to our hotel. Two of us had the ribs and the other two ordered pizza. All were delicious. The service was extremely good. Our waitress was friendly and efficient.

We visited this pub as it was close to our hotel. While the food was good, it wasn't anything out of the ordinary. Service was efficient and friendly.
