A friend of ours who lives in the high rise across the street took us here for lunch. It was a fun venue amongst locals, along with good food. They had a large selection of locally brewed beers which are always fun to try. The waitresses are nice and attentive. I have had better personal pizzas but the salads were excellent. If you are visiting but want to eat at a local place, you can't go wrong eating here.

We actually didn't know anything about this place, but saw the banner out front claiming to be voted best wings. So I joked I would be the judge of that, and that's where we went. I will say a very well deserved award. The wings were some of the best I ever had. I got the combo, traditional and ponchos. In which the traditional was good but not my favorite compared to the ponchos. I absolutely loved them, wish I had just got an order of them by themselves. We also had ordered the fried pickles which were good as well. Appreciated the thin layer of coating, nothing heavy. My girlfriend ordered the wing special, the captain and coke, they were good, just a little too sweet for my taste. I enjoyed the atmosphere as well more so than the touristy places. Would definitely eat here again if we come back to Chicago.

We enjoyed their wings. We had the traditional spicy buffalo wings. The staff was friendly and the food was pretty quick.

Jake's was rented out for a the wedding reception we were at and the food and service were first class. Great beers on tap and the best BBQ in the area.
