pretty good – The pizza/calzones/strombolis are all really good. Their dough is really doughy and soft, which I really like, but if you're not into the whole sports-bar environment, it's hard to really enjoy yourself. It's impossible to ignore all the plasma tvs which are everywhere broadcasting sports. The service has always been good, but the food is pretty expensive.

Great beer selection! – OK. I like the great beer assortment and the card program that Old Chicago offers. As for food, it's fine food, but not exquisite. You will have to pass it up if you are looking for anything very fancy. The service at tables is ok...could be better. The few times I have eaten there, it seems as though it takes effort to get service. However, I can't say that the service is any worse than other bar/restaurants. The bartenders, however, are friendly and usually very busy. Overall, the staff is helpful, although not overly friendly. The place is clean and well tended. If you're in a real hurry, this is not the place to eat. But if you've got some time and want to relax in a very down-key type of place, this is it.

Hearty pizzas, an extensive beer selection and sports on TVs make this a casual hangout for large groups. – In Short
This neighborly pizza-and-subs restaurant is a sports lovers' haven, with its plasma TVs, numerous beer signs and Chicago sports team paraphernalia. But the casual, tavern-like vibe also draws groups of professionals, families and couples who sit in overstuffed booths to enjoy steaming deep dish. As the night goes on, younger crowds mingle while enjoying a selection of over 110 beers.

Great value, and fun atmosphere – This place has a great atmosphere, almost like your typical sports bar. Food is like every other sports bar, but very affordable and big portions. Overall this is a great place to hang out with friends.

HORRIBLE – bad bad BAD service. Our waitress was a witch, i say WAS because she disappered half way through our meal. If you come to this place and don't plan on drinking, be prepared to be IGNORED. Wouldn't go again, even though the pizza is tasty, when served hot.

Not worth it – I realize this is a pizza joint but that doesn't mean the rest of the food shouldn't be decent. I ordered a chicken salad. The dressing was blah and the lettuce was brown. I must say my boyfriends chicken sandwich was decent and the pizza is always pretty good. Know there is Karoke on Tuesdays. Ugh, so bad. I'd avoid this place on Tuesdays unless you want to listen to a bad version of "Waterloo" while eating.
