Best Beer Selection on Tap

Old Chicago

Weekly voters have again declared this national chain restaurant their choice for quenching and quaffing. More than 30 beers await the thirsty on tap, with upwards of 80 choices in bottles. The chain's 20-year-old World Beer Tour program allows you to electronically track your own history of tasting 110 different varieties of cerveza. Pizza, hot dogs, burgers, lots of deliciously fried appetizers, maybe a salad or two, a swinging bar and a quieter dining area (which is family friendly) help this joint fulfill many diverse needs when it comes to refueling.
