Many years back, the Letter Carriers convention delegates stumbled into this fine establishment by chance. Next day, by word of mouth, double the number, by Thursday, we filled the place. My family now stops there on the way to Michigan (twice now) from Texas, just for that great deep dish. Every delegate from everywhere agrees, this is the place. Their own draft ail is also good, but I think, it's the Management that has a staff that ties it all together to make this a place to drive hundreds of miles out of the way to get to on your way to anywhere in the Midwest. (P.S. the ribs are also 5 star. Jim from Texas.

Exchequers is a nice sit down restaurant and bar. The service is relatively fast and the food is delicious. The atmosphere is nice and the staff is super friendly. The prices are reasonable too which is great for my student budget.

When I first moved to the windy city I bought matching hat, gloves, and scarf. Fell in love with the merchandise. A great place to find halloween costumes.

I first set foot into this pub after our professor invited us to celebrate the end of the Winter quarter. Ever since, I come in whenever I feel like having a quick drink before heading on home for the night. the place itself is decored in displays of the Chicago Bulls and White Sox's Championship memrobelia that cover the walls of the bar area and old historic newspaper front pages all around the restaurant. It's almost a museum telling the history of Chicago while you eat. Ok, maybe I'm so clear on the decor. The bar area is small and cramped located at the front of the restaurant while the dining area is wide open spanning 2 rooms. The bar itself is well stocked, but lacks in some well know liquors. The there are several beer drafts to choose from ranging from St. Pauli Girl to Bodington and even their own house beer. They have good deals on pitchers as well. But what makes up for the tight squeeze in the bar area is the food. They have daily specials ranging from fish & chips to Mediterranean style ribs. Not only that, but they have great barbeque ribs, big burgers cooked the way you want, appitizers that will fill you up, and good pizza. The only odd thing, you must pay twice if you sit at the bar (one tab for drinks, the other for food). Who knows why. It's worth the stop after a long day at work or class. Come for the food and drinks, stay and read about the history of Chicago all over the walls.

Pros: Good food, Off the Adams and Wabash ""EL"" station, accross from DePaul Downtown campus, good for group dining

Cons: Parking, small bar area, 2 tabs for sitting at the bar, daily specials rarely change

Ragstock has a great selection of vintage clothing. They also have BDUs and some other cool stuff. But, charging me $5 for a shirt someone already wore is weird to me. Going to a thrift store and hunting for cool clothes is more fun, and a lot cheaper. If you've got the cash, ragstock is worth checking out. Otherwise, go to a thrift store.

I always smile when I think of this store, because I flash (for some reason) to Woodstock. (No, I wasn't there!) Cool imagary. I am intrigued by what they sell here, which includes some decent used and retro clothes for a very low price, and some other items like hats or scarves. It's kind of a funky looking area around here (under the train tracks) which adds to the vibe.

It's been 25 years since I first went to Exchequer. It became my favorite deep dish pizza then and it still is today. \n\nWhat makes it unique is that the bottom isn't soggy. They cook it a special way so that the crust stays crispy. How many other place's deep dish pizza can you eat with your hands? \n\nThe ambiance isn't the greatest but, you'll always find a TV to look. Those in town for a visit that are interested in trying Chicago Pizza should look here as an alternative to all the over-hyped places (especially Giordano's). \n\nGo to Uno's or Gino's to say you went but got to Exchequer to really enjoy!!

The pizza here is great! It is by far the best that I have ever had! They have deep dish and thin crust, and it is all to die for! I would recommend it to anyone!
