Whenever a "Best Burgers in Chicago" list doesn't have Green Door Tavern on it, something is wrong. Definitely one of the best, beats out many restaurants that are constantly on a top 10 list. Service is fast, atmosphere is very cool (old pub), price is...More

Was here for the first time 2 weeks ago when we were in Chicago for a restaurant show. Highly recommend the wings, burgers, and brussel sprouts. I think from now on this'll be a place we try to hit up at least once whenever we're...More

One of the oldest bars in Chicago. It is like an upscale dive bar. Several rooms and bars. Nice staff. Decent prices and decent food. Perfect place to visit for some drinks or beers.Perhaps not for a meal. There is always someone to talk to....More
