THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom Restaurant Review

: While Old Chicago boasts decent deep-dish pizza, it's often the world tour of impressive draft and bottled beers that draws crowds. Guys meet at the bar for a lager, ale, pilsner, porter or stout and to watch sports on the plasma TVs that surface a large portion of the walls. Still, there are plenty of families, too, who drop in for a modestly priced night out. Deep-dish pizzas are the star, although thin-crusted pies are also available, and there are more than thirty toppings from which to choose. A broad selection of other Italian offerings --- calzones, spaghetti platters and other old-country entrées --- are respectable but won’t make you cry for your Sicilian mother-in-law’s cooking. That said, the Sicilian pepperoni rolls are nothing short of addictive.
