    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

    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.

    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.
