    Another great Logan Square brunch and/or beer option. Great draft selection, tasty tater tots and uncanny good French toast. There's also a pool table in the back.

    This place has a great local vibe with cheap drinks, especially during their weekend brunches. Enjoy $5 Bloody Marys or mimosas to pair with a reasonably-priced entree. Go for the breakfast burrito. Read more

    Longman and Lula swamped? No wait for brunch here. Not the cheapest or the tastiest but reliably good drinks, a great beer list, and creative American food. Bring back the portobello fries!

    I absolutely love Rocking Horse. I've never been disappointed. Awesome food! Rocking Horse is a total hidden gem in Logan Square. Lack of uber hipsters, which is fantastic!

    They've added to the menu, great new stuff. Brand new truffle tot plate is amazing and super rich! And the $5 bloody mary on the weekend are a great deal.

    Go early on Thursday for the craft beer specials. They raised their prices a bit and changed the menu some, but still the same old awesome tater tots. Get them chili cheese style.

    Dave, remy(did I spell that right?) and Aaron are the bee's knees!! Not to mention, with the heartbreaking loss of Victoria, whom we sat with all the time, Megan is an amazing rockstar replacement!

    The bartenders were extremely friendly, funny and welcoming. The caramel apple French toast = ridiculous. Definitely will be back for more brunch.

    From its appearance, you would not guess it is a craft beer bar. But it is. It occasionally gets a keg of a rare beer you would perceive should have gone to another bar on this list. ☞ Free wi-fi.

    Get the wings. They fry them and finish them on the grill. Sets up the flavor profile of the whole dish.

    How do you take away the best salad that was named after your bar (Rocking Horse Salad)?! You took away the shrimp quesadillas too. No other favorites, it's all mediocre. Never coming back for food.

    Smells a little bit like piss, but if the company and beer is good it's worth a stop for a drink. It's quite the scent though 😬
