Great bar food, but better BBQ. The pulled turkey sandwich was surprisingly delightful.
Casual bar with a New Orleans bent - the cheese fries are topped with layers of shredded cheese and served with hot sauce, and televisions will broadcast the game.
Shuffleboard and Beer. What more could you want? – Toons is one of my favorite bars in Chicago. They have excellent beers on tap and have provided me consistently friendly service. The bar is also lively but never packed which I also like (although the owners may not)
The sandwich selection is also very good for a bar - I often go there to eat lunch.
The best part of the bar is the addictive shuffleboard game in the rear part of the bar. Trust me - you can spend hours playing this game!
Check out Toons!
my corner bar – inexpensive, taxi friendly, great music selection, lots of tvs for the college games, great party packages.
Cheesy neighborhood bar elicits either pained groans or shrieks of delight from first-time patrons. – In Short
This Day-Glo bar is decorated with lava lamps, kitschy paintings and countless tchotchkes; the corridor by the unisex restrooms glows with phosphorescent paint. In the back room, there's pool, tabletop shuffleboard and Golden Tee. The kitchen serves basic bar food, like crispy buffalo chicken strips. There's also a daily soup and sandwich special, nachos and po' boys.
Home sweet Home – Toons is absolutely the next best thing to New Orleans. Well okay, they rarely have live music, but have an eclectic jukebox. I beg to differ on the young backwards hat wearing description of their patrons!! You can find all sorts, the yuppies, the astute citizens (hi Floyd), the pro-drinkers, sports addicts, game players, musicians, families and then the crew...all good peeps. Danny- kewlest bar owner I know (I've known a few in my rather middle-aged life), and he knows how to throw a grand party; try out the crawfish boil on Memorial weekend or the pig roast during Labor Day weekend. Cocktails- tall, wonderful span of draft and bottled beer; all reasonably priced. Menu- wide variety of fare, my fave: toss up between the blackend tuna caesar salad and the turkey burger! Give it a whirl and tell em Julie from New Orleans sent ya! At your own risk...
Better than you think... – Great chill-out neighborhood bar. Nice music selection, good drink selection, good drink value. Mosey up to the bar and enjoy the friendly service or sit at a table with some friends and chat. The bar carries the baseball and football packages, so if you want a low-key sports atmosphere, you can find that at Toons as well. The shuffleboard and pool table in the back are added bonuses.
