Editorial Review of Billy Goat II

The Billy Goat Tavern Original near the Tribune Towers and Wrigley Building is the place to hear the latest gossip among the savviest writers in Chicago. Its brother location harbors just as much of an after-work scene, in this case trading journalists for public workers and traders.

Lunchtime gets busy thanks, in no small part, to the renowned "cheezborgers" made famous after a 1978 "SNL" sketch featuring no less than Bill Murray, John Belushi, John Aykroyd and Lorraine Newman. But beyond the beef patty on a bun, you'll also find salami and cheese, Italian beef and triple cheeseburgers on the simple menu. To facilitate its status as an after-work hangout, you'll find plenty of cocktails and beer on tap. If you're up for trying, take a shot at pronouncing the super-duper-long Greek name written on the wall to get a free drink.

Average cost: <$10
