Detail for Billy Goat Tavern : Bar/Food / Burgers
Cheeseborger! Cheeseborger! Cheeseborger! Made popular by Saturday Nite Live, this restaurant offers good burgers and other fare. Remember: 'No fries,chips.'
On tap: Billy Goat Lager is actually pretty good. Burgers comes in a large Kaiser roll - we'd recommend getting a double as the patty is a bit on the thin side. - sys, 03/12/2010

I was looking for a place to have a great cheese burger. I found Billy Goat Tavern. I never had an experience like this one. I ask for a single cheeseburger the man behind the counter said I should have a double cheese burger. I did it was quite a unique experience. One of the best burgers I ever had. Thank you. - cindy Joseph, 06/11/2003
We traveled all over Chicago. Took in all the tourist traps,spent severl hundreds of dollars and never felt more at home than when the four of
us went to the Billy Goat. A round of drinks cost less than twelve bucks & Nick, a well seasond barkeep,was a reminder of a time when those behind the bar actually took charge of their crowd & gave a service to their customers. The Billy Goat will remain a 'must stop' on any trip to Chicago for the rest of my life. Thanks to the crew for showing us a good time. A Fellow Barkeep, Greg.

I just want to say that I had one of the best times ever at the Wrigley Field location of the Billy Goat Tavern. I had heard so much but could never imagine the hospitality. Peter and company delivered a Chicago style experience that goes unmatched. If you have a chance, please stop in. In my line of work I travel quite a bit and have never had such a great time. Thanks Pete and I'll definately be back in August for a Cubs game. - James Tyler, 05/10/2003
Best place to eat. I
have cravings for the cheesebugers at least once a week. A wonderful owner! Chicago could never be the same if the Billy Goat were to disappear!!! I would never be the same....need the cheeseburgers!!!!! - anonymous, 04/26/2003
We found the place very amusing. There were men sitting in the corner of the bar who were talking very 'salty'. You could call it foul -- but it was almost delightful to someone who does not have a thin skin. A man they called 'Captain Bob' was extremely gregarious as he consumed vast quantities of ale and cigars. - tish werther, 12/25/2002
The people are great -- the food's overpriced. If you're really hard up, have the grilled cheese. They certainly can't screw up a piece of american cheese between two slices of white bread. They must have the thinnest burger patties I've ever eaten. Big buns though. - Larry 'Pud' Ballantine, 08/20/2002
I sat here for nine hours straight on Saturday. I ate four double cheeseburgers, drank 16 Old Styles, watched a Cubs game, and met a newspaper reporter. The bartender told me I was sitting in Royko's old seat. How can you get any better than that? Every other bar
may feel the pulse of Chicago because the Billy Goat is the heart of Chicago! - Todd Baldi, Chicago, IL, 06/25/2001
