Brisku's Tops! – You can't find a better meal than you can find at Brisku's! I stick with the Albanian and Mediterranean dishes as there's no place I've found with more delicious dishes of those varieties. Bite into one of their appetizers or entrees and the flavor explodes in your mouth! The flavors don't fight with each other, they dance in harmony and delight your tastebuds. Try their sausage dish, you won't ever look back! (Qevapas) They even offer specials every weekday! You can't beat that! Try their cask ale. Delicious! Oh and I know I said I didn't really do their American dishes too often, but their burger really is KILLER and I haven't had better wings anywhere! The atmosphere is relaxed and inviting. Service is stellar and accomodating. You just can't go wrong with Brisku's!
Albany Park spot offers a mix of Mediterranean fare, beer and American dishes. – In Short
A mixed crowd of Serbian expats and locals bellies up to the bar or settles into the adjacent dining room. The menu offers wings, calamari and thin-crust pizzas, as well as Mediterranean specialties like lamb shank and garlicky baba ghanoush with warm pita. Other offerings include Balkan plates like qevapa, a well-seasoned sausage that mingles beef, garlic and spices in a skewered snack for two. Sweet baklava and crème caramel are among the desserts.
Highly Recommended! – I think it's the best place for a group - friends or family. The food is great and there is something to satisfy every taste bud. My favorite is the stuffed chicken as an entree and I can't even begin to pick a favorite appetizer (there are so many good ones to choose from). The ambience is friendly and relaxed, the service is prompt and the drinks are cheap. What's not to like!!
good food – The bistro is a good place to wind down after a long day at work. If offers excellent food and a nice friendly atmosphere. Highly recommend it
great place to meet before late weekends – I love going to the Bistro on weekends for pre-ups. I meet my friends, have a tasty dinner and some cocktails, then hit the town. I normally have calamari (fresh, not frozen, and the best in town) and follow it with a fantastic Brisku Burger, or if im exceptionally hungry, ill have the Bistro stuffed chicken. The fantastic jukebox selection, FREE DARTS, and welcoming aura make Briskus Bistro my favorite place to just hang out, have a good time, and of course, enjoy some great food and great drinks.
Favorite place to relax. – I was at Brisku's Bistro with my friends for a birthday party. We all got pretty wrecked and it did not cost too much. Good place to have your "get togethers".. good place to meet with large group of friends.
The food is great. You have a laid back bar feel to the place, but the food comes out and dishes are very good. You can choose from familiar stuff like burgers, chicken sandwiches.... or mediteranean foods that are not familar to most but very good. I highly recommend trying the menu.
Fun place to hang with all your friends. – I come here to meet with my friends. Easy place to just relax and hang out for a long while. Great place to have your get togethers. I had my birthday party here. Everyone with my party had a great time. We all got wasted and it did not cost too much to have great drinks. Alot of beers to choose from and great drinks mixed by cute waitresses and bar tenders. Wide range of food to pick from.. everthing I have had so far is great. Menu has good mix and choices of American food like burgers, chicken sandwiches, and stuff ...to really good mediteranean foods with feta cheese, lamb and other stuff.
best bistro in the biz – the service is top notch. amoung one of the best. There is a great variety of food from american to Albainian/Greek. The bar serves a huge varity of drinks sure to satisfy anyone. The price range is steller for the amount of food you get. I highly recommend this dinning facility. The best part of all...my girlfriend loved it.
Greatest Spot in Albany Park to Have Fun – The Bistro bar is a place that I have been looking for for years. And you will agree once you go there. Unlike hot spots in Lincoln Park, Bucktown, Wrigleyville, etc, the Bistro does not have a snooty crowd and an over-confident bar staff. It has an energetic atmosphere, great service with some of the best inexpensive dishes in the area. The food is really good; I recommend the 'Brisku Burger' or the Liver dish, depending on the type of dinner you want to have. I have had a great time with my boyz while watching football games and having nice dinners with family and friends.
So no matter what mood you are in, it will be a great time without leaving you broke by the end of the night !
Great food and atmosphere – With excellent food and atmosphere that offers ecclectic variety, I found Brisku's Bistro to be quite pleasing. I enjoyed the Lamb Shank and found the sauce to be qiute wonderful. My wife had the Bistro stuffed chicken which is like nothing I have ever had. The spinach stuffed chicken breast topped with mozzerella cheese and a delightful marinara sauce was golden. Our children had a brisku Burger (Home made and delicious) and a Chicken sandwich which was better than your normal bar fare. What we especially enjoyed was the aura which is casual with good music beaming from the juke box. If you want a place where you can have a good time with great music and STILL enjoy restaraunt quality food, GO TO THE BISTRO.
