    This airport has some of the smallest seating areas for bars/restaurants. Glad I waited long enough to find a seat and eat this delicious Chicago burger!

    Very good burger. The 1lb burger with bacon will fill you up on your layover

    Baby burger is big enough, an order of fries can easily be shared. Get the grilled onions on your burger, they are excellent!

    I swear this is the only truly normal airport bar I've ever been in. Good food, and cheap. Waitresses are sweet/sarcastic with a dash of surly. This bar is why I will pick midway when I have a layover

    Chicken wings are actually fried chicken. Big & good, comes w hot sauce, but it's plain fried chicken, not buffalo style.

    Best place for meal if you have a layover at Midway Airport. Grab a burger and a beer (particularly a Fat Tire).

    The lemon pepper chicken sandwich beats other ordinary chicken sandwiches, big too. The fish sandwich is also big & tasty. Can't go wrong with either one.

    It's a small nice bar before to get to concourse B but they need more help in there only 1 server and 1 cook at least waiting 30 to 40 mins when it's too busy 😱😁

    The tap labeled "you're special ale" is a rotating selection, not a house brew.

    Beware: I'm pretty sure this place has issues with dirty beer lines and/or taps. We became very ill after drinking one pint here.

    Horrible people behind the bar. They act like everything you ask for is a request for them to give you a kidney. Obnoxious and rude.
