With three indoor dining areas and a massive patio (all of which have their own bar and TVs) this cavernous and frequently busy Lincoln Park bar is fully equipped with all the booze and screens you need to watch sports. And while their burger and pulled pork sandwich are good, the wings should be a mandatory part of every order. They get an extra layer of flavor from being smoked over oak logs before hitting the fryer, and come with a variety of sauces ranging from a mild bourbon BBQ to the spicy ”sex panther” made with ghost peppers and habaneros. You can also get them grilled—something we recommend since extra char pairs perfectly with their tangy smoky chipotle sauce.
