    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.

    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!!

    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.

    Not just a big beer selection, but the staff knows their stuff. Very helpful in deciding. Pretty good bar food as well at suburbs prices.

    The sriracha-laced Bi Bim Bob and the chilaquiles with salsa verde are both served with your choice of carnitas, chicken, steak or vegetables. Read more

    Try the Woodford Reserve Manhattan and Old Forester Old Fashioned. Perfect for the bourbon drinker!

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

    There is always a killer rotating draft list and the staff is great. An awesome neighborhood bar.

    The most comfortable, welcoming bar in this part of town. Always worth stopping in if nearby.

    The BOB Burger is amazing. In the summer, the front tables are open to the street.

    If you enjoy beer, bar owner Chris is a true connoisseur. Look for the guy with the heavy beard.

    Only come here if you have a good chunk of time, because your server will probably move a fast as molasses.

    Wednesday Night Mac N Cheese special is the best. Different Mac N Cheeses every week.

    Sausage Platter rules faces. Ask for the extra sauces you typically get with the fries.
