Sticky tables, projections of old movies, and a world class beer selection. Incredible bottle list, ever changing fresh taps, and sometimes they tap really special exclusives. My favorite bar in my city.

One of the few places on the Southside of Chicago to get a decent pint and a good old fashioned. Love Maria's!

LOVE Maria's, especially earlier in the eve when the crowd median age is a bit higher. Great beers but sometimes list is too centric on one style. Would be nice to have more descriptions posted as bartenders can be a bit surly when asked to describe. Even with that, it is the real deal, no faux anything and particularly love it when the weather is warm and besides for the Pleasant House's yummy pies and awesome fries, they bring out a taco cart.
