Tried the cherry bomb bbq wing of the month and they were phenomenal. The ranch fries were really good as well. Can't wait to come back and try the other wing flavors. Great place to eat and watch sports.

Great food, beer and ambience. TV's all around so you can't miss any of your favorite teams though obviously you'd better support local. I had the chicken sliders and the shrimp. Really

I wanted a good American food experience with loads of meat with great flavour plus a good choice of beers and Jake's ticked all the boxes. There's an extensive menu of food and a more extensive menu of beers on offer. It'll take you a while to go through it all. I chose the $23.95 bbq, triple play combo which... More

We were looking for lunch on our first day in Chicago and came across this place. Wings were good but the fish and chips were average. Fries were very good but the fish was bland and the batter was a bit soggy. Our sever was fine but kind of quiet, not real personable.

Insane number of beer taps, but also wine on tap. The wings and fries are delicious. Warning, the XXX wings are amazingly hot. So hot, you can buy just one before you commit to an order. Bartenders were very polite and attentive.

We decided to go to lunch here on a whim. We had gone on a tour of the city and needed somewhere to eat. The place looks fun from the outside and they seemed like they would have something for everyone. We were right. The barbecue here is delicious. I am a huge barbecue fan and this place made me...

We found this place while we were walking around the city. My husband just had to try it!! Who doesn't want wings and beer :) There were so many things to try on the menu that we ordered a little of everything. Ribs, wings and mac & cheese were yummy!! This is a wing and bbq place so that's what... More
