Billy Goat Tavern (Chicago)
Billy Goat Tavern North Michigan Avenue (lower level) Chicago, USA. Ph# 312-222-1525. This place was established in 1934 and made famous on on tv, Saturday Night Live, in the skit, "Cheezborger, Cheezborger, Cheezborger, No Pepsi...Coke!" It is under ground kind of, as Chicago has two levels of streets down town and this place is on the lower level. They have 7 other locations but this is the Original one and the one to go too!! You walk in and the place smells of fried food. No fancy wine glasses here. Wine comes in a regular glass, at least the price is decent. The sit up bar is a reversed L shape and holds 15 people. They have a staggering 3 or 4 beer on tap. Lots of people were there and all having a good time, most were also eating but I did not sample the food while I was there. They have 2 or 3 tv's. Nothing fancy but lost of atmosphere. A must do if you are in Chicago!!
