Fireplace Inn (Old Town)

1448 N. Wells St.
Chicago, IL 60610
312-664-5264websitePrice: Moderately Expensive
Area: Downtown

This Old Town rib joint is arguably the city's best (some may opt for Twin Anchors on Sedgwick). If you like ribs, this is your place. But this is Athletic-Minded Traveler, so know that there is much more on the menu that just beef and pork! The atmosphere is steak house cozy with low lighting, lots of dark wood, and red tablecloths. The separate all-seasons heated outdoor café has a retractable roof and 24 TVs including a 70" big screen. If you're a sports fan, this is a great place to take in a game. 

Along with all the BBQ options (baby back ribs, Texas beef ribs, steak, pork chops and BBQ chicken), you'll also find jumbo shrimp cocktail, Alaskan King Crab legs, spinach salad (with option to add chicken breast or shrimp), grilled chicken Caesar salad, roasted veggie burger, and veggie sides. Other sensible fare includes the grilled halibut or grilled chicken breast sandwich, chicken breast dinner served with rice and veggies and daily fish specials! It's a pretty good deal as well considering that entrées come with a tossed salad bowl, cole slaw or cottage cheese, potatoes and baked bread.

Open Mon-Wed starting at 4p and Thurs-Sun starting at 11a. Open late.
