    I don't know how it's possible to ruin one, but I had the WORST waffle in my life here. They took it off the bill, but it was still concrete.

    Clearly not a soccer bar, judging by empty tables at the start of the World Cup!

    Sangria pitchers are > 1 gallon, for only $30. Delicious!

    The brunch mimosas for $5 are the best deal I've seen anywhere. So is the DIY chili.

    I stopped in here for a beer and the place was buzzing. The NCAA tourney was on so I enjoyed that. I meant to get back but never made it. Maybe next time.

    If you aren't very hungry but are looking for a quick snack, try either the sweet potato or truffle fries. Also, enjoy the many Goose Island beers available here.

    Place has a Guido-esque dress code. Apparently no shorts allowed... in a Sports Bar... in July! Oy vey... oy vey indeed.

    Julie at the bar is probably the best, most helpful, and friendliest bartender I've ever had. And, she's working the whole bar alone!

    Seasonal guacamole is a definite don't. Mangoes and mint don't belong in guacamole. Avoid.

    The girls in the door are so rude. They do not treat customers equally. They disn't do things easy at all...so we left!

    These are really enjoyable wings, mostly due to the crisp skin and robust, flavorful meat beneath. You get both ranch and blue cheese dressing, plus a sizable portion of celery, carrots and radishes
