    Charcuterie! Came all the way from Texas for it. Got a plate with 3 meats and 2 cheeses selected by the chef that were AWESOME! Also they have a great drink selection. Try the Weizenbock beer!

    High-quality beef from Q7 Ranch in Marengo, IL is ever-present in the burger lineup here, as are savory toppings like a sunny-side-up egg, house-made bacon, and Gruyere. Pro tip: add 'em all. Read more

    Don't judge this old town book by the cover! Chilaquiles, cheesy hash, country biscuits and sausage was everything PERFECT! Not to mention the bottomless mimosa wristbands. Classy & sassy experience.

    Chef Jared Van Camp works to make this burger’s meatiness shine, topping it with equally savory toppings: housemade bacon, a fried egg, aioli and Gruyère. http://tmoutchi.us/YmTIHi Read more

    During lunch and dinner, chef Jared Van Camp charms foodies with housemade charcuterie, Midwestern cheeses and hearty burgers; after dark, craft beers and cocktails keep the party going. Read more

    To come here and not order chef Jared Van Camp's charcuterie is to miss the point: More than a dozen varieties are cured in house, including standouts like the fennel-scented finocchiona. Read more

    Over a dozen varieties of charcuterie are cured in house, including the fennel-scented finocchiona. And the kitchen doesn't stop there: Everything from the hot sauce to hot dogs is made from scratch. Read more

    The B: pork belly. The L: arugula. The T: tomato hollandaise. What the acronym doesn’t describe is the perfect balance of each layer, bookended by a supple poached egg and fluffy biscuit. Read more

    Of the many duos encountered, Old Town Social's grilled cheese & tomato soup ($9.00) sticks out as the one where the two elements depend on each other the most.

    Charcuterie lovers will swoon at the in-house butcher shoppe, offering housemade sausages and cured meats to-go, or eaten immediately with a cold beer from their massive drink menu.

    I know you don't want to be all "I'm ordering a grilled cheese..." but seriously get over it and order the Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup. It's so yummy, and I don't even like tomato soup.

    Dope spot on Saturday nights depending on the DJ. Gotta love a place you can go to without getting super dressed up. Chill and have fun.

    The DJs are, unfortunately, very self-absorbed on Sunday game day. Quick to put on their music during a commercial... but will sometimes wait several commercial breaks before putting the game sound on

    Depending on the day, you'll have very different experiences: weekdays - lad back, nice atmosphere, good food & music / weekends: line out the door, crowded, loud, long waits.

    Ask for “The Caesar” to rock your palate with a Bloody packed with homemade hot sauce and clam juice -- all creating a tasty ode to Julius... or maybe Little.

    One of the city's most interesting charcuterie lists, plus off the beaten path options like harrisa duck wings, though the crowd is not you usual foodie snobs. The decor is breathtaking, with an antiq

    All charcuterie is salted, smoked, and cured in-house. Ask for the bresaola; it is not on the menu.

    The housemade mini dogs: Chicago, Coney or Corn. There's a lot more thought into the dogs than diners would believe.
