“Not the Original”
Review of Billy Goat Tavern - CLOSED

The burgers are not as good as the original. There are much better places to go for a fast food burger. It also does not have the ambiance of the original.

This place has a counter set up where you order, wait and get your food. It could have been cleaner and just doesn't make you feel you want to come back.

How does this place stay in business? The burgers were super skinny and greasy. Way overpriced! The atmosphere is not good. Can't see this place staying in business.

If you are going to see a show at the new AMC at Randhurst Mall, stop by early for a bite at the Billy Goat. The beer is as cheap as anywhere in the suburbs and the theater is about 50 yards away. Expect the same menu as you would find in the city but with the large dining room and clean bathrooms you should expect in Mount Prospect. I stop by for lunch all the time when I want to catch up on some TV and spend a few dollars less than at Five Guys.

Now we have the same jaunty atmosphere from the original in the N. W. suburbs of Chicago. Menu is the same with some expansion. Lots of TV's to watch sports. Prices are very reasonable. Gail the bartender really helps make this place. At times it's a boisterous, entertaining, lively and pleasant crowd.
