Food at college bars frequently tastes like it came from the freezer section at Costco. So we get excited when we find a spot that has great, fresh-tasting stuff, and that’s why we really like Bat 17 in Evanston. The menu has the usual suspects, like burgers, sandwiches, and fries, but they’re made with high-quality ingredients (like, in some cases, housemade bread). The space is full of TVs, pool tables, and foosball, and while it definitely feels like a college hangout, you’re welcome even if you’ve paid off all your loans (or have been deferring for a few years now).
