Is It Any Good?

A pretty damn good Sports Bar…if that’s what you’re looking for.

Bar Louie on Urbanspoon

I’d say that these places were the Sports bar perfected, but really…did they need perfecting? What more was there to do?  All you really want out of a place like this is a comfy chair, a Bartender who knows to keep the food and drink coming, a decent menu, and…most importantly…easy access to large and beautiful televisions. In this alone, Bar Louie succeeds in spades.

But if you’re here for the latest and greatest in small plates, well, seek them elsewhere. If you’re looking for the best Burger in town, why aren’t you at Umami or Go Burger? A singular drink poured by a Bartender who’s preferred profession in life is to actually be Bartender? Nope, not here either…at least not necessarily. You’re thinking of places like Neat, Magnolia or Downtown’s The Varnish.

Face facts, you’re in the suburbs. Whoever you’re with wants to walk the mall and see what’s on sale, and you want to relax with an adult beverage and maybe catch the game? I can think of no place finer.


WHAT SHOULD I GET?: All that stuff about Umami and Go Burger being said, their Chicago Stockyard burger was pretty nice. C’mon, peppercorn, parmesan blue cheese? Worstcheshire sauce? Aces!


PARKING: Depends on where you go. For the Arcadia location, just park in the Mall’s massive lot and hoof it. The Mall’s directory will point you in the right direction.
