When you begin brunch by showing your ID at the door, you know you’re in the right place for a Bloody Mary. Spicy and sweet, garnished with salami and completed with a beer back, it’s practically a meal in itself. Don’t let that distract you from the food, however. Breakfast tacos are a good way to spice up your egg intake. And the Spoke’s signature “fatboy” burgers are thick, juicy and perfectly tender. Take it down with a pile of those fantastic fries and you’ll be living proof that you are what you eat.

Cheese curds and bloody mary's are delicious! I had their fish sandwich as well which was great. Rooftop is amazing. 


Honestly, my favorite thing about this place is the lemon hot wings that are literally ON FIRE when they come out to you. And by that I mean, there is actual fire on your plate. If you have no other reason to go, go to get wings that are literally set on fire. It's sure to impress anyone you know. Second to that, Whiskey Wednesdays - you can get any whiskey for 1/2 off - and they have a HUGE selection. It's sort of a no-brainer type of spot :)


In the summer time this little rock-a-billy spot in the west loop has an awesome beer garden on the roof. The food menu is your typical bar fare but delicious none the less! Their draft list was impressive, with an even bigger selection of bottles and cans. There is definitely something for everyone here.
