Great pizza

Was looking for someplace to eat late one night and found old Chicago. I got a small pizza for myself with the toppings that I like him it was delicious. Will definitely be back.

The staff and the food are so good here! Everytime I am in Lexington I make sure that I eat here. The service is great and I tell all my friends they have to eat there when they go to Lexington!!

We just wanted to relax in our room after a long road trip, so we saw the Old Chicago close by. This is one of our favorite pizza chains ever! We first found one in Nashville and seek them out wherever we travel. The delux pizza is fantastic. We prefer the thin crust and greek salad too. Check it out... More

I used to be a regular at Old Chicago and have completed 8 beer tours which require 110 beers each. I have seen this location go steadily down hill in quality of food. Now I will say that they do have some of the best Nachos in town and the Italian Nachos are also very good. The happy hour appetizers... More

Went with my friend Earl on a Sunday afternoon. Neither of us had been to an 'OLD Chicago" before, so we backed out of the Johnny Carrino's and back to O.C. We ordered some craft beers and an appetizer of Italian Nachos. These were the best nachos I've ever had! After wolfing them down our Pizza arrived,1/2 tuscan chicken and... More

Had lunch here with my daughter. Nice place for sports fans. Food and service was good. Lots of people there watching a ball game and having a good time.

We picked somewhere that we do not have in our city. They have a nice selection of food and a nice selection of beers. The prices were very reasonable and our waiter was awesome.

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.
