The prices are great. The food quality is not good enough to overcome the slow service. I do not recommend this place as there are too many options available in the area.

My department went out to the Cubby Bear North in Lincolnshire, IL in October 2013 for a department lunch (seven people total). We arrived at 11:45AM for lunch, and there were plenty of servers and very few people eating here. Despite this, the food service was very slow -- it took almost fifty minutes to get our food orders out. The waitress was somewhat on top of refilling drinks, but when it came time to pay the bill she was non-existent for fifteen minutes. And then when the bill finally came an 18% Tip was automatically put on the bill . . .

I had ordered a Cubby BBQ Burger, which was pretty good (with Provolone, Bacon, and BBQ sause), and fairly large sized. The onion rings were very tasty, but were cold (the few other people in my group that received the onion rings also said they were cold). If they would have been warm, I think they would have been really good.

We were on a fairly tight time schedule, so if it was not for the fifty minute wait for seven burgers (and the fact that the onion rings were cold) this would have gotten a better review.

We had beer and hotdogs before the game. The staff are friendly and the food was good. The place was packed but we were able to find a table for 4. If you don't like crowds and noise, watch the game at home, otherwise, this is a fun place.

It was a treat to enjoy a good hamburger and fried chicken while watching a football game surrounded bt enthusiastic Bears fans. Service was very good.

First time and in awe of the size if the place! The original Cubby Bear in Wrigglyville is an institution. This new version is just amazing om a Chicago sports night. Bummer that the beer specials don't apply during games.
