Billy Goat Tavern
Descend the murky stairs and "Butt on in" as the sign says. Made famous by John Belushi's "Cheeseborger, cheeseborger, cheeseborger" Saturday Night Live skit, the Billy Goat Tavern never fails to please in all of its sleazy glory. For a truly authentic experience, enter late when all the tourists have left. Check out the old Mike Royko columns and photographs on the walls. For lunch and dinner you can order a hotdog, a ham and cheese or a "cheeseborger," but you cannot order fries, only chips. Try the "Doublacheez" for a wallop.
No fries, chips ! No Coke, Pepsi . All of the Chicago charm you can handle wrapped up with a greasy first class cheeseburger . Saturday Night Live Fans, you remember ... Belushi .. And the history of the curse .
This tavern was great...located under the busy city streets. Great food, drinks, service...and very affordable. It's a great change from the busy, people-filled clubs and bars around the city. Low-key atmosphere made for the best time.
We wandered into the place and were surprised to find ourselves in a Chicago landmark. The cheesborgers were great and a round of drinks for 4 people was only $17! I will definitely be back the next time we visit Chicago.
This place was great. The burgers are the best that I have ever had. Plus they have the cheapest beer you will find in downtown. The ambiance is awesome. If you have not been to the Billy Goat Tavern yet you need to make a stop in. The burgers are so cheap. You can't get something like this at McDonald's.
Gets a bit crowded during the lunch hour, making it hard to find a seat...but just wait, one will open up. Step up to the counter for a cheeseburger, chips and drink...Make it a double or triple, but don't ask for the grilled cheese...you'll disappoint everyone.
Besides experiencing one of the most famous SNL skits from the Belushi and Akroyd days, food at the original Billy Goat is as good as it gets for the value.
If you're looking for a good breakfast or a great Cheezborger Cheezborger, dis is it!
