Smilin' Jim's Saloon

Bars, Dive bars West Ridge

This spotless bar has been a Rogers Park fixture for ten years, and we're thinking it's due to the free barbecue doled out 5–8pm daily during the summer and the $1.25 drafts. Don't be surprised to see a blue-collar regular stroll in with 20 pounds of raw chicken and commence grilling—it's just a help-yourself kinda joint.
