Recommended by friends and have a good write up on TripAdvisor. We wanted something nice and easy so walked in with no reservation at about 7pm. 10 min wait and seated. Excellent chicken wings and pulled pork (came with fries and slaw). Too stuffed to try anything else but the whole menu looked great. Really wide selection of beers too.

To start the people there were very friendly. Friendliest place I have been to in Chicago. The people were matched by the great food. I had the BBQ. Was very good. They also have a large drink menu. Just a few blocks from Michigan Ave. I will definitely come back here.

We've walked by many times and finally decided to give it a try as we felt it was time to try to find a casual place without the high cost most restaurants in this area have. We arrived early so got a seat by the window and perhaps could have even eaten outside as they have a small patio. Our... More

Right off Michigan is a BBQ sports bar that should not be missed. Wings are plump, juicy and you get 8 in an order. We got combo wings, half medium buffalo and Pancho (grilled, garlic, cayenne-spicy!). Very good wings. Nachos topped with BBQ pork and sauce is great for a different take on the classic nacho. I had the Sloppy... More

This was a short three block walk from our hotel. My wife and I had dinner there one night. I enjoyed the wings. THey are certainly above average. My wife had a salad and sandwich. She said both were very good. I had a couple of local craftbeers. They have a good selection on their menu list, BUT when leaving... More

Went around 7 pm and a short wait. The beer selection was good, bbq pizza, buffalo blue cheese fries, bean burger all rocked. The kids mac and cheese was homemade and yummy! The decor was cool too! Wed go back again!

Came here with a group of eight. My wife and I have been here before with the kids, but the other six had not. The wings are awesome. I had the spicy buffalo wings, you get eight, but they are huge. Burgers are great, and the barbecue is fantastic. Great beer menu too. You have to try the bread pudding,... More

If you want the best wings in Chicago, this is the place! Stumbled upon it and what a treasure! I didn't want to leave! The only bad part was I have to travel back to Chicago to enjoy this place! If you are in Chicago and don't visit, you have made a mistake!

Did not care for the firecracker wings as they were NOT hot enough. I did, however, enjoy the PB&J wings. They were oddly interesting. Very unique, and you should try. Great food, OK service, a bit pricey but considering the area, not anything that is not expected. Enjoy it is you are in the mood for a drink and a... More

A very nice pub, teeming with cheering people. Good pizza, delicious BBQ ribs and a genuine american atmosphere. Close to the shopping streets of Chicago, yet in a quiet side street. The staff is very welcoming. A must try.
