Peer at the mural behind the long, wooden bar at this West Loop sports bar, and you’ll see a forlorn-looking man playing guitar at a crossroads (hearkening back to the haunting Southern folk tale the bar’s named after). But the only fork in the road you’ll have to navigate here is whether to join the “bros” hollering at NCAA games at the bar or the groups snacking on passable barbecue and burgers in the luxe booths.
