Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom Restaurant Review

: Need a place to take the family for pizza and a modestly priced night out? Looking for a barstool and a pitcher to share with the boys while watching the Broncos? An Old Chicago location can help you on all of these counts, as they split their energies between equal parts sports bar, full-fledged beer hall and old-fashioned pizza parlor. The pies are pretty good, middle-of-the-road versions that are consistent but neither thrill nor offend. The broad selection of Italian offerings walks a similar tightrope. Calzones, spaghetti platters and other old-country entrées are respectable but won’t make you cry for your Sicilian mother-in-law’s cooking. Need a beer? The place pours dozens of draft suds from Bud and Miller to local and national microbrews. If that’s not enough, Old Chicago offers several more dozen American and import bottled beers for your drinking pleasure. There’s also a drink-your-way around the globe program that earns you food discounts and free schwag. Even if your team isn’t scoring, you still can.
