This is a nice diminutive bar hard on the railroad overpass (The Union Pacific North line to Kenosha, WI.) but in a quiet neighborhood on Chicago's far north side. It is one of only a clutch of venues in Chicago not affiliated with a national chain (c.v.: Buffalo Wild Wings) to have the Buzztime interactive trivia game.
Most of the draft beers here are macros, but you will find Samuel Adams Boston Lager and Sierra Nevada Pale Ale; and if you want to go a step down, a Leinenkugel's (usually the Sunset Wheat).
The food here is standard bar fare, nothing too adventurous. The hamburger and french fries were strictly average.
I enjoy this tavern because of its ambience. It's not a tavern with an intense number of Buzztime players. It is a college-following bar. (It likes the Univ. of Iowa Hawkeyes.) It is approaching its 13th birthday.
The times I have been here, I rode the bus. It is two blocks north of Foster Ave. Ravenswood is 1800 W. The #92 Foster bus runs until midnight on weeknights. The last time I was here, I wanted to ride it back east to the Red Line. But nothing was coming, so I crossed the street and found out that this westbound run was the last one of the night. I would have had to walk six blocks west to Western Ave. to catch that bus if I had dallied any longer.
