Been here several times and finally decided to review it. Like most Old Chicagos the atmosphere is pretty typical. Numerous televisions tuned to sports with memorabilia everywhere. The beer quality is good here. I think they do pretty good business and the beer stays fresh. The service is adequate. The wait staff appears educated about their beer but not necessarily good beer. The selection is typical of Old Chicago. Lots of lagers from around the world and readily available ales from around the world, too. They had nice local breweries represented on tap like Tallgrass and Boulevard. By no means is the selection exceptional here but considering most places in Topeka only offer BMC and Boulevard an Old Chicago is a step up in selection. I always have a pizza at Old Chicago. It's just okay not the best but certainly not the worst. I've yet to find a great beer bar in Topeka. This is the best they have going right now (except for going to Bind Tiger - the brewpub).

OC is a national chain sports bar and pizza joint. There selection is generally slightly above average and if you can find a craft draft you like they have a large bottle list, and you're bound to find at least one that is suitable. Food is better than normal chain rest. food. In Topeka this is not a bad destination.
