Ballast Point started out in San Diego, but we’re glad it came to Chicago, because it has great beer and above-average bar food (including a “California burrito” that’s just like a regular burrito but with fries - proving that occasionally the West Coast can be just as unhealthy as the Midwest). The huge space feels like a sports bar, and is perfect for big groups who want to hang out and watch a game.
