    I love this place for the atmosphere. Very laid back. Awesome patio. And if you're lucky, on rare afternoons you can spot a bro trying to climb the giant moose in the back. Good times for all.

    A rare selection of more than one Leinenkugel's tap handle, a tiny bathroom and a beer garden that answers all of your casual group-hang bar prayers awaits one and all.

    Fantastic neighborhood tavern!! Excellent food & service. Great place to watch football, especially the Green Bay Packers. If you want a successful game day experience, look no further!!!

    Team: Wisconsin, Green Bay Packers. The granddaddy of Chicago Cheesehead bars offers both Badger and Packer fans $2 hot dogs and brats on gamedays. Read more

    Burgers, brats and hot dogs grilled up fresh by game time!! Great call, makes you feel like you're at a tailgate. Plus $5 stadium cup refills - 32oz - that's a great deal. Atmosphere is crazy!!

    Great low key place in the neighborhood for an adult beverage. Nice outdoor patio too if the weather is cooperating. (via Scoville) Read more

    Great Packer bar with great Pack fans. Friendliest patrons in this city. Also, the curly-haired regular bartender is hot.

    Try Batch 19 at Will's. It is a pre-prohibition style lager. Bold, hoppy flavor that is well-balanced from the archives of Coors dating back before 1919. Read more

    Hands down the best Packer bar in Chicago; it's like a little piece of Wisconsin.

    If you're coming for a Packer game sometimes even 3-4 hours early isn't enough.

    Go somewhere else. Past the veil of the rustic decor there's little but mediocrity in food, service and beer list. The New Belgium Ranger is the only redeeming quality.
