This place is great! Loved the burgers; not my absolute favorite, but still very, very good! Great atmosphere. Good service!

The burgers and pizza are great. Call in advance to get the pizza started before you arrive. They take about 45 minutes to prepare.

We tried the deep dish pizza and a pasta dish. Both were excellent! The restaurant has a fun atmosphere with pictures of mob figures and prohibition era events on the walls. We ate in the bar area which was fun - everyone seemed to be having a good time. There's also a large dining area. The wait staff was very... More

The pizza was awesome! Of course, being in Chicago, had to try the deep dish. And there were plenty of choices for beer and wine. Lots of character in this place, And service is tops. This place never fails to disappoint.

Our office celebrated the holidays with a pizza party at Exchequer, and it was set up in the cozy Fireside Room, with a beer/wine bar and a pizza and salad buffet. There were about 25 people in our group, and they set up one long table for us. The service was great and so was the pizza, both thin crust... More

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
