Local Review: Re-Discover Chicago at Old Crows Wrigleyville

Attracting over a thousand patrons a day, Old Crow Smokehouse is the go-to spot in Wrigleyville for great country music, craft beer, and delicious food. With an emphasis on Southern-style BBQ and the aesthetic to match, you’ll feel like you’ve been transported from Chicago to Memphis or Kansas City.

This country sports bar and restaurant is a popular destination for young professionals and boasts killer happy hour specials and a spacious rooftop space. During baseball season, Old Crow’s serves thousands of customers as Cubs fans pour in by the dozen to get their fix of BBQ and hot wings.

Old Crow Smokehouse opened its first two locations in Chicago in 2013 before expanding to Huntington Beach in 2016 and Orange County in 2017, now putting them at a total of four locations, all with fantastic reviews.

Owned and operated by a friend of mine, Old Crow’s Asian-American influences shine through with menu items like the potstickers and Korean Kalbi short ribs. You really can’t go wrong with anything on the menu, but my personal favorites are the BBQ ribs, hot wings, and Chinese potstickers. For a great night out with friends, don’t forget the drinks. What pairs better with BBQ and live music than locally-brewed beer and tequila shots?

With social distancing guidelines in place, Old Crow Smokehouse is now operating under normal capacity. I was able to enjoy a fantastic outing with some friends visiting from Puerto Rico over the weekend and want to thank Bing, Old Crow’s manager and a buddy of mine, for coming out to see us. We all had a great time and my friends and I learned that Bing loves Puerto Rico, so much so that he spent over three months there once!

With raving reviews about the lively aesthetic, friendly service, and amazing food at Old Crow Smokehouse, it’s a must-see Chicago staple. Don’t just take my word for it, make sure to check it out for yourself the next time you find yourself in the area for an evening you won’t forget.
