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

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

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.
