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.
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.
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.
