Also came with your choice of soup. salad, and an excellent chocolate chip cookie that was served warm. Excellent waiter. Pizza was good.

We have visited Old Chicago several times. The wings are so crispy and full of flavor. We have tried wings from different cities in Florida and Kentucky. Old Chicago has the best wings by far. We love eating here. My son loves the mozzarella cheese sticks. I had the cheese burger for the first time today. It was great. The... More

The bar will remind you of Chicago and the beer is popular. Go for the thick crust pizza over the thin. Toppings are very skimpy, they give you three but if you want mushrooms on your pizza get 3x mushrooms. Service was friendly

This such a fun restaurant. I would describe it as a huge sports bar. There were televisions everywhere. The food was excellent!! And the beer selection was drool worthy!!! You won't go wrong here.

Loved the Meat Lovers pizza at Old Chicago. Lots of meat & cheese. Some of the best pizza sauce I have ever had. The bar staff (especially Jay) were downright friendly!

We ordered carry out tonight while spending a night in town on our way home from spring break. Had a thick and a thin and ate more than I should have. Very good pizza. Not really Chicago style, but really good pizza that was reasonably priced and quick.

Old Chicago is very good. I do enjoy the Chicago 7 pizza the most. The salad dressing is not that great. The location is good at Hamburg. Great beers on tap. Not much on their mixed drinks on my last trip I had a margarita it was nothing to write home about. Stick with the bear for sure. Old Chicago... More

Drove here to get out of the rain and traffic. Short wait but not so good. The waiter forgot out drinks. The burger was burnt. The chicken was dry. The sweet tea was syrupy. The "Chicago" style calzone had a pound of pepperoni, no cheese and soggy dough. :(. Waiter was nice. Don't go ESPECIALLY if your from Chicago.

My first trip to this restaurant was today. I was not impressed. After being seated, our waitress was missing in action to take our drink order. A different waitress awkwardly took our drink order after walking past our table several times and apologized for not knowing where our own waitress was. After our waitress finally showed up, we decided to... More

Stopped here for the first time on Friday afternoon and was not disappointed. We had the Italian nachos for an appetizer. There was enough to serve 4 people easily and it was very good. Could have eaten that and not ordered the pizza. I chose to order the pizza and take the rest of the nachos home. Pizza was one... More
