    Hot wings are delicious.

    A decent place to watch a game. The food and drinks aren't going to wow you.

    The only reason to come here is to make your own bloody on a Sunday. If I were you, I'd eat somewhere else.

    $10 minimum. Don't worry they'll let you know after they've poured your beers though.

    The service is the worst I've ever had...but I put up with it for Wednesday's burger and fries deal...

    We went to watch the Bears game ended up eating breakfast AND lunch. Definitely the best chili I have had in a long time! Really great staff!

    Kristin Martino · November 18, 2013
  • Reginald S.

    The staff they hire here give zero fucks. It's conveniently close to the Damen Brownline though. Worth one beer but not more than two.

    Wings are now $0.25 on Mondays. Still a good deal. Solid local beer selection. Go for the Chipotle wings, they're a touch spicy and delicious!

    Now it's ten 10 cent wings and you have to order a beer. And apparently spicy = chipotle and not HOT

    Great place to watch football. Sunday draft beer specials also!

  • Mindy Z.

    No clue why this place is so busy even with the 10 cent wing special. Wings were nasty and so were the soggy onion rings. Slow service. Very disappointing.

    Mindy Zimmer · September 13, 2011
  • Lou L.

    25 cent wings and 3$ beers on Thursday's. Btw chipotle wings a really hot but awesome.

  • Trip B.

    A burger cooked "medium" there comes out like a brick of charcoal. Cool atmosphere tho.

    Trip Biesanz · August 6, 2011
  • Melanie V.

    Worst service ever! Walked in, made eye contact with three waitresses doing nothing, sat down and waited. And waited some more! Then when confronted if they were gonna serve us, they kinda shrugged.

    Be prepared to be raped by the waitress when she brings you your bill, especially on game days :O

    Really bad service on a Friday night. Don't come hungry, it will take hours to het your food. Waitress basically ignored us.

    Erin Purdy · March 26, 2011
