Old Chicago | Pizza & Taproom

Recently I entered a giveaway on LittleMixico’s instagram and won a $50 gift certificate to Old Chicago

I was more than excited to go and try all their delicious food that I’ve heard so much about!

I planned my visit and upon my arrival, I was met by the GM Brian Bosby who showed me and my guest to our seats.

Our booth had a great view of the bar, several flat screens, and the patio area.

Brian welcomed us once we got seated and comfortable and introduced us to our wonderful waiter Nathan who was full of personality and had a great sense of humor.

While looking at our menu’s and not knowing where to start, Nathan took our drinks and recommended the, “Chi-Town Trio,” which included Italian Nacho’s, baked to order garlic bread, and Sicilian pepperoni rolls.

My favorite on this plate was the Sicilian pepperoni rolls!
Cheesy, pepperoni, marinara sauce in each bite!

Our waiter Nathan made our drinks and even though I am legal to drink, he sure did make Shirley Temple’s look good. I however stuck to my classic beer, Blue Moon.

Old Chicago offers vodka, tequila, rum, bourbon, gin, whiskey/scotch, shots, draft or bottled beer, flights, hard cider, you name it, they have it. They even offer nice virgin drinks.

While finishing up our first appetizer, Brian stopped by to recommend some different pizzas and other dishes. He also asked us if we were ready to try their hand-tossed chicken wings.
We looked at the menu and with 7 different sauces and 3 dry-rubs, we all decided on Original Buffalo.

By the time we finally decided on our main course, we were already feeling full.

At first we were all going to share a pizza but upon looking at the menu, I saw that Old Chicago has more to offer than just pizza.

They have craft burgers and sandwiches, specialty calzones, pastas, fresh salads, and of course all kinds of pizzas.

Whether you want to build your own pizza or have a specialty pizza, they have it. They even offer their signature Chicago Thick crust or their New Ale crust pizza dough made from scratch. To my surprise they even offer Gluten Free pizza!

My guests chose to build their own pizza and I chose the Cajun Spice dish.

The Cajun Spice dish was delightful!
The dish contained corkscrew macaroni, Anaheim peppers, roasted red  peppers and andouille sausage blended with Cajun spices and Old Chicago’s signature white cheddar cheese sauce topped with aged white cheddar, buttered bread crumbs, and green onions.
This dish had just the right amount of kick and spice in it and I’m so pleased I didn’t have to share.

I did manage to steal a slice of pizza and it did not disappoint!

We didn’t even finish our meal and Nathan and Brian stopped by to recommend the Warm Cinnamon Crunch Rolls for dessert.

Fresh warm cinnamon rolls topped with a caramel sauce, cream cheese frosting and cinnamon crunch topping. Cinnamon rolls never looked so good and this dessert was AMAZING!

With locations across the states, if you ever find yourself near an Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom, do yourself a favor and stop by.

And if you live in the DFW area in Texas like I do, Old Chicago at Dallas Mockingbird Station is a must!

We had such an amazing time and I can’t thank the staff enough for making our visit so special with their warm hospitality.

My appetite and I will be back for more soon!
