This was our first visit to Old Chicago. We had the buffet which included pizza, calzones, and bread. Also came with your choice of soup. salad, and an excellent chocolate chip cookie that was served warm. Excellent waiter. Pizza was good. Not a tremendous amount of choices, but what they had... read more

Cute place on the inside and outside. The bar seems to have numerous number of beer on tap including cider. I noticed they updated a wall with chalk of the actual tap beers available each day. The staff was super friendly so that was a plus. My daughter order a chicken panini and loved it. She ordered the jerk fries... More

Traveling from South Carolina to Louisville we decided to stop here for a late lunch. Our server Christy was very nice and even talked to is about the city (neither my wife nor had ever been to Lexington Kentucky before) We split a deep dish pizza and I got 5 wings. I wasn't impressed with the wings (dry and shriveled)... More

I use to love eating here, but they changed the menu and I'll only eat there now for lunch. They had this amazing garlic cheese bread that I could eat alone, but no more. The decor is great, the food not so much.

I'm not a big fan of the pizza served here, but the salads and pepperoni rolls are why I return. I would avoid the lunchtime buffet, as they are slow to replenish the food once it's gone.

Visited Old Chicago for the second time, even though first visit should have been enough. Each time we've visited, the service has been poor. However, this last visit took it to new heights (or depths). A server who was inattentive, took forever to acknowledge our presence, took longer to bother with us, and who managed to completely ruin the entire... More

My family ate at Old Chicago while driving through Lexington. We are from Chicago, so we thought it would be fun to compare. The pizza was good, and the service was fast despite the parking lot being packed.

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
