    Craft beers galore, respectable whiskey list too. Cozy and comfortable. You may think you want something besides a burger, but trust me, you don't. It's to die for. Skip the sweet potato fries though.

    Veggie burger and turkey burger are both excellent. Great beers on tap and the know how to sling them, plus cask strength Four Roses. Wow. Special points for their fresh, pillowy brioche rolls.

    Great beer and spirit selection. They always seem to have something special on rotation. Decent food and apps served late. Very cozy and dark interior. Quiet and shaded patio in the summer.

    Among the best bars on the north side. Excellent (and affordable) beer/whisky selection, great food, and attentive service. Cool, laid-back atmosphere that is adult, but not pretentious.
  • Ghostly International
    The B.O.B.'s amazing whiskey selection is one of the best in the city. Also, take a gander at the locally sourced food menu - try the Jalapeno Cheddarwurst with a Blanton's neat.

    I heart the jalepeno brat (or knockwurst as its sometimes called), so give it a whirl. Also, most servers there are very informed, trust your beer selection to them if in doubt.

    Nothing like a beer and burger to spruce up a Monday. This spot aptly delivers with their Monday special of $4 half liters of BBK, a Bavarian-style lager, and $5 half-pound burgers. Read more

    The BOB burger is AMAZING and unique. Ask for Chris's special beers in the back that aren't on the menu. Great selection of sour beers among others!!

    The B.O.B. Burger is incredible! But get the regular fries, sweet potato fries are not all that great.

    This place can do no wrong. Small menu but its better that way. Everything is phenomenal. The grilled cheese with sweet potato fries is the best.
