Woodlawn Tap

Just off the U. of C. campus, Jimmy’s (as it’s affectionately called by those in the know, after dearly departed original owner Jimmy Wilson) is the favored spot for the scholars to rub elbows with undergrads and working-class neighborhood regulars. Cheap burgers are washed down with even cheaper beer.

Jimmy's has soul. It's a South-side institution. Catch the jazz on Sunday evenings.

Cheap drinks? Check! Everybody needs a good hole in the wall, where no one knows your name and the drinks are strong! This is one of those many Hyde Park gems that have all the basics Liquor and Fries... You will need salt, they are super bland.
