With the 4th of July around the corner, all you want to do is grill out and crack open a cold one. So, to help you celebrate all week long, we’ve compiled a list of some of the most American bars in the city. Between old western glory and southern hospitality, these are our favorite all-American bars in Chicago!
1725 W Division
It’s a sports bar with a big flag and catchy, patriotic name. And, though very all-American, it’s specifically Chicago-focused in its decor. What more could you want?
3655 North Sheffield
Having been a patriotic staple of Wrigleyville for over 80 years, Murphy’s Bleachers deserves an honorary spot among this all-American list.
2922 W Irving Park
If they have such a thing as “Wing Night” ($.50 wings + $4 drafts), then you know it’s as American as it gets.
1112 S Wabash
Okay, so more of a restaurant, but there’s nothin’ stopping you from ordering a beer with your burger at this place. That’s the American way.
1224 W Webster
You guessed it—this place is all Kentucky Derby style, and it’s southern-themed menu items are in the running for some of the best in Chicago.
3800 N Pulaski
I couldn’t complete this list without some damn good BBQ to hold you over. That and a shot of whiskey, and you’ll feel like freakin’ Uncle Sam.
3300 N Lincoln
N’awlins-style cooking. Fresh to death.
935 W Webster
I mean, c’mon. This place has over 100 TVs. What’s more American than that?
6689 N Oliphant
This place is overwhelmingly Texan, but it feels like home.
