third time's a charm, NOT. I'm so tired of the service at this place. I know the food is good but after 3 times of poor service, I'm done with this place. I took my grandkids in for lunch and they totally ignored me. waived my menus and tried to get their attention. those poor boys were really hungry. so... More

Ordered a pizza, 3 burgers, and the pizza nachos. Service was fine. Pizza wasn't very good at all. The crust was greasy and it had whole olives on it, which was different. BBQ, bacon, cheddar burgers were good, probably at least a 1/2 Ln, but also greasy. Pizza nachos sounded real good, but very disappointing. Not a lot of toppings,... More

We were hungry for pizza after attending a play on U of I campus. It was after 10:00 p.m. so we were delighted to find Old Chicago was open until 1:00 a.m. on a Friday night. We ordered thin crust pepperoni, mushroom and green pepper. They make a very good pie! Good service in a friendly atmosphere. We'll be back!

The thing I like best about this restaurant is the extensive beer list that they have and how you can taste many beers from around the world. Their Chicago style pizza is very good, but not quite as good as the famous places in downtown Chicago. It's a nice atmosphere, very close to the mall.

Old Chicago is a chain. I'm not sure how many locations that they have, but I've enjoyed their food in Dillon CO, Ft. Collins CO, Grand Rapids MI and now Champaign IL.. The locations have all looked a bit different, but all have a large bar area and generous seating. I'm pretty much a pizza fanatic and Old Chicago has... More

It is thin(ner) than their regular though. The pizza was ok...the service was poor. The cook brought the pizza out. Server was outside smoking. Didn't even know we had already received our pizza. The beer was cold and I would've liked another if she would've come back. The manager and her male friend were watching the Black Hawks game and... More

Pizza was so great, wonderful thick or thick crust, lots of cheese and great sauce. Friendly quick service, especially for pizza and good prices. My only complaint was it is very noisy in the restaurant so if you are trying to have a conversation at a large table it's very difficult. Wish I could eat this again soon, next time... More

My wife and I love Old Chicago for pizza... Great crust, lots of cheese, and VERY FRIENDLY STAFF!!! Our last server made my grandson feel like a king and even brought the store manager over to meet him. More craft beer than you can imagine. Always a great time. Who wants to go with me???
