Foursquare Tips

  • Staff avoids you like the plague!
  • The outdoor patio closes about an hour earlier than the bar.
  • The BBQ Lovers Delight is a ton of food. You will eat for days. The Prime Rib on Fridays are good. The wings are good and the staff is fairly attentive.
  • Old Town's home for Purdue sports. Football and Basketball. Boiler Up!!!!
  • Great place for freezer burned chicken tenders. I've cut through phone books that were more tender.
  • Old & lame.
  • Beef Ribs are a must!
  • Fire. Play. Sin.
  • Where's the underage people?!? Here alone. Family event. Drunk and alone. My own age group
  • Buy jordon a beer.
  • BBQ burger was great. Fries were awful. $13 shrimp po boy only had 4 shrimp and a ton of bread & nasty pale tomatoes- it was decent tho, just way too salty. Ambiance is pretty nice. Good for sports.
  • Used to be one of the more tolerable bars in Old Town but the renovations have sucked most of what character it had to begin with.
  • Spinach salad: tasty, rather a big portion, included grilled chicken filet
  • Kitchen is open late!
  • Serious renovations, significantly reduced in size for now until the expanded space is complete
  • Las costillas son espectaculares!
  • Too busy at night. Crowds push and shove. Supposedly the good is good for dinner though. Will report back
  • The crowds at this Old Town bar and grill come for the barbecued ribs and super-sized vodka-spiked lemonades and stay for the spacious covered patio.
  • Electric lemonade is a game-changer. One of few tolerable places in Old Town
  • Best staff in Chi!
