    If you can't decide between the minis, go with the sriracha chicken sliders. DElish!

    The buffalo chicken wrap was great and the sweet potato fries were some of the best I've ever had.

    A great alternative to Justin's, which was really more of a slut dungeon/internment camp than a restaurant/bar.

    University of Illinois and Marquette Hangout Bar. Decent drink specials on game days. Food is typical pub fare. Good service by wait staff. Check the back room for seating and better TV viewing angles

    Our waitress was very attentive, and they have heat towers outside. My friend really liked the sandwich with the shaved blackened chicken. Their citrus dressing is good.

    A little loud on the weekends but a really great place to hang out with your buddies, catch a game, and grab a beer. One of my favorite spots when I lived in the area.

    Came for a deal for $1 drinks if you wear a fake mustache. My group shows up and the deal is over due to the volume of people who showed up, but deal poster doesn't specify time limit. Fuk it
