This is your basic run of the mill Old Chicago. Nothing special, but a better beer venue than most other franchise restraunts in town.

Usually not much of a wait which is nice. Decent selection of the normal bar foods along with some tasty pizza and pastas. The best deal is probably the all you can eat lunch buffet.

As for beer, they have a pretty large selection of macro and micro brews for around five dollar a pint. No real ales though. On Thursdays you can buy a glass for around ten bucks and get refills for $2.50 after that.

I found it hard to believe none of the BA's in CO Springs had added this yet. Visited here in Febreuary 2008. I went here about 12 times in a 2 week span since it was right across the street from my hotel. Upon walking in the bar is right in front of you. Gues seating towards the back. There is also an upstairs they use for festivals and such. It is open most of the time in the afternoons as well. Upstairs is the long L shaped bar and a small little stage and few videogames with more seating in the back. It gets crowded! During days its life as usual on the weekends it turns into a madhouse upstairs. Almost like a college bar. Large military presence there as well. Food is always good for they type. Never been to an Old C's with bad food. I like the calzones best and the Big Cookie dessert. The pizzas are usually pretty good as well. Service is made of some high school and college students who really like to gossip and talk at the bar. They often let their social life interfere with service. Not all of the time though, depends on what day you go and who is working. Beer is composed of 10 American and Euro macro taps(Bud, Bud Light, Coors, MGD, Guinness, Newcastle, ect) and 10 local/micro brews(Bristol, Breckenridge, Boulder, Left Hand, Odells ect) Bottle selection is very good! Has everything from locals, macros, to out of towners like Deschutes and many more.
