We went for a late dinner after the NOTO Art Walk. They waiter we had looked over worked so we didn't get the service we are used to. It took a long time to get our food but once we got it, it tasted good. It took so long to get out food that our two year old was a... More

I love going here. The pizza is wonderful. My favorite part is the crust. The only complaint I have sometimes is the amount of cheese. It comes out in big gobs. Yuck. Other than that I love it.

Had a birthday dinner here on 08/11/2013. Not many people in the restaurant. Quiet atmosphere. Manager stopped by and asked if everything we ok. Got our drinks and food quickly. Food was very good and the portion size was just right. Waitress was attentive, kept our drink glasses filled and did a good job. We would eat here again.

This is a nice place to meet the folks you work with for a break after hours. The waiters are knowledgeable beer drinkers and you can't go wrong if you are a fan. The food is good, too.

Went here one evening while in town with some friends and the food was very good. A must to try are the Italian nachos, They are very good but they have some awesome pizza too!. They have a friendly staff and the food comes out pretty fast.

Love Old Chicago. All of their menu is superb ! Never had a bad anything here. Lots of variety of all items and they give you plenty. Best Pizza in Topeka by a long shot. I know it's a chain but they kick butt.

Beer selection isn't anything like it used to be. There have been two increases in the menu prices in the last year. You rarely ever see your beer tour prizes after you fill out the I owe you card that they give you. Management is trying to go corporate too much. It is really sad because there are a few... More

I love this place, they provide great food for great prices, everything is clean and their staff is very attentive and cheerful, this is one of my top choices to go to. If I'm just wanting a snack I order their huge Nacho platter that is plenty to feed two people with plenty of stuff that makes every bite a... More

Old Chicago has the distinction of being just about the only place in Topeka that serves decent food and a beer after 11 PM. Great beer selection and solid variety of pizza, pasta, burgers and bar food. My default choice is the Chicago Seven, named for its ingredients of sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, black olives, green peppers, red onions and mozzarella... More

We went with a large group recently- so everything didn't always go perfectly, but what may have gotten mixed up, was made right straightaway. The waitresses did a fine job of keeping up with the lot of us!
