    This place was really cool. They have a million different whiskeys and a $2 mystery beer grab bag. Good looked awesome but I was there for the whiskey. Very nice staff and a super cool setup.

    Best bloody Mary in the city, all their food is incredible, highlights are: flaming wings, egg sandwich, steak burrito, meatloaf and buffalo chicken sandwich. Check out their lunch special!

    Deck up top open during summer; the Hangover Hospital is a brilliant brunch menu. Bloody Mary is among the finest in the fair city. You won't regret heading out west to get there.

    Always caught my eye when I'd drive past and finally got to go as bar of the Chicago Bar Bracket. Tempura Bacon = amazing & a handful of delicious Bloody Mary's to choose from. Read more

    Egg-y brunch is definitely an option here, but why be distracted by scrambles and toast when you can get a famous Fatboy, which is customizable with a variety of toppings at no extra charge. Read more

    The burger is very good. But you don't have to have it every time. Its craft beers are quite good. I can even urge you to go for the random "Butch's Beer Special" should you want to cheap it out.

    Great burger deal for lunch! Legendary Fatboy burger which includes a select beer or soda for $10! Also have 3 limited dogfishhead brews on draft! Get'em while the gettins good!

    The road rash bloody mary is phenomenal. If you like buffalo sauce, you have to try the chicken tenders. They make their own buffalo sauce and it kicks the crap out of bottled buffalo sauce. Yum!

    Great Bloody Mary's loaded with tons of meat and cheese. Brunch menu is amazing. I do the Lavache Poire, but also highly recommend the corned beef hash. Sit at the bar, too! Awesome staff on Sundays.

    The Bloodies are delicious, the roof is the best and there is nothing bad on the food menu (although the falafel comes unassembled, which is tricky). Tuesday's dirty dozen can't be beat!
