Often times when you are in downtown Chicago and you are looking for a good place to grab a normal sandwich and a beer, you are out of luck. Places can be over priced or have semi-exotic menus. Great at times maybe, but not a good place to watch a game and have a beer. No so with Mother Hubbard's! This is not the place for a date or anything exotic, but it is a great place to watch a game, have a beer and eat well prepared typical bar food. I was in here during a Black Hawks playoff game and in spite of the fact they were VERY busy, the service was outstanding and attentive and the food was very good. They have a full service bar, a wide variety of beers on tap and plenty of TV's for a good view of whatever game you want to see. Just off State street a few blocks north of the river it is convenient to a number of major hotels and I felt very safe walking the neighborhood alone late at night. I would definitely recommend Mother Hubbard's as a great place to go for a beer and some great bar food/sandwich.
