Time Out says

The stories are true—this subterranean tavern is still the best spot to get a made-to-order “cheezborger” with a side of shtick. Sam Sianis, nephew of Billy Sianis, the Greek immigrant who founded the legendary haunt in 1934, still hollers out orders from behind the U-shaped counter. Avoid weekends unless the atmosphere you’re in search of includes fanny packs and camera flashes. Weekday lunch still offers a glimpse of hungry reporters, cops and downtown characters bellied up to the bar in true Mike Royko fashion. Just remember: no fries, cheeps; no Pepsi, Coke.
