Schaller’s Pump
Photograph: Erica Gannett

There’s no better place to cheer on your team than this down-home, blue-collar institution that’s been serving up cold ones since 1881. Arrive at least a half hour before game time if you plan to eat—and you should definitely plan to eat. Just-like-Mom-made classics include crispy pork tenderloin smothered in perfect pan gravy and greaseless fried chicken. Add doting servers, cheap beer and a living room–like atmosphere, and you’ve got the best sports experience short of front-row tickets.

Schaller's is without question a must for every Chicagoan. The drinks are cheap, the food (especially the prime rib) is to die for, and the people watching is epic. I have been going to Schaller's for the better part of 15 years and will continue to do so. It has lost a little bit of luster with the passing of Pops, but this family run place is great either before or after a Sox game, or if you just want to catch up with a friend on a nice afternoon. 

Also, you never know if you may get a former mayor walking through the vintage doors, and taking in all the history can't be beat.
