It's not posh like some of the bars on this list, but it's rooftop boasts an eclectic crowd and a great beer list.
Waste of time – This bar is full of mid level folks pretending to have cash and ride motorcycles. Guys - stop shaving on Thursday so you can have that biker scruff by Saturday night and take your 3 year old motorcycle with a whopping 1700 miles (HA HA , ride ever?!) and fake being a biker. Ladies, just show up and pretend to find any of this life interesting or "cool".
When people aren't busy pretending they're cold and shallow. What happened to this place?! Years ago it was a great bar full of real people who actually rode bikes. I guess the fact the Discovery channel (and many others) make bikes look great has brought this place down.
Don't waste your time here.
This place Rocks! – Food is great and hot! Hot fresh fries. amazing.
staff are all friendly, cheerful, and helpful
atmosphere equals the food and staff.
this restaurant is a must for everyone. you will not be disappointed. exceptional on all levels.
thank you twisted spoke. someone is doing it right for consumers at this joint.
COOL! – My husband is a Harley nut and I wanted to surprise him with a dinner out at the Twisted Spoke. My initial reaction was it was cool to see all the old harleys, but it was kind of dumpie looking. We ordered ribs and they were the BEST ribs we've ever had! Definitely worth it and a great price! We will definitely go there again on our next visit to Chicago.
HOLY COW!!! – good food im over 60 years old and i loved it the atmosphere was so fun!!!!!
Twisted Joke – This is nothing more than a trendy River West extension of River North pretension. Gives the illusion of being a biker bar, but is really just a higher-priced diner with beer and kitsch.
what about the Bloody Marys? – I live nearby and frequently go here for Sunday Bruch, the food is delicious and it's a great spot (tough to park sometimes, tho)
Burgerlicious – Best burger in town. The fatboy gives you an option of all the topings for no extra charge. Great fries. The rest of menu is average or better. Service varies.
WHHHHOOOOOOOOOOO – Great Place to hang out! Bartenders RULE! Great Ceaser Chicken Sandwich!
forget the soggy stuff.... – Twisted spoke has the all time best fries ever! It doesn't help that they give you 47 lbs. of them whenever you order a sandwich or burger because I hate that I can't finish them all! They're seasoned to perfection and are never mushy.
mmmmmm – Excellent food and LOTS of it!! Good parking and good service!! And best of all....it's cheap!!!
