If the sound of pepperoni rolls, spaghetti pie, and Chicago-style deep dish pizza gets your mouth watering, then you’ve just found your spot for dinner tonight: Old Chicago Pizza and Taproom. With a wide array of appetizers like Buffalo Chicken Rolls, Italian Nachos, and Jalapeño Cheese Pretzels, getting together with friends for some apps and beers couldn’t be more delicious—or filling!
“Pepperoni Rolls and Buffalo Chicken Rolls are our top two selling appetizers,” says general manager Lauren Gholz. “I can honestly say that I have never had a single complaint about either of them. Nothing is a bad choice as everything is made fresh.”
Between the lineup of appetizers, the equally enticing Tavern Bites, and the massive array of beers, you’ll definitely have to make more than one trip with whoever will go with you—heck, go alone! Pick it up yourself by placing a to-go order, or have Dinner Delivered.
Up for a challenge? Try joining the World Beer Tour and experience different beer styles from all over the world. Acquire prizes along the way from coolers to coasters to glass sets, and get your picture on the Wall of Foam after completing 110 different beers.
Whether you’re interested in the Tour or not, the mind-blowing variety of 36 draft beers on tap—twelve of which are always rotating—and 74 bottles, twelve of those rotating as well, will have you stepping out of all sorts of beer comfort zones.
And if you aren’t sure what to order for your meal, try the Oh My Spaghetti Pie! Unlike any other menu item in town, this dish is customizable with a choice of four sauces made in house and the option to add chicken, spicy link sausage, or a caprese topping. It’ll have you licking your lips and reaching for a nice Stone IPA.
