It may not be the friendliest joint on Division Street (do we sense some bitterness about Wicker Park's gentrifcation?), but, thankfully, the kitchen is able to muster enthusiasm about its hearty, tasty, no-frills comfort food. Market-priced salmon is on the menu here, but that’s not the point; the point is a round of beers and a platter of cheesy, jalapeño-spiked nachos; an impressive slice of onion-studded meat loaf; salty, hand-cut fries; and a fat slab of ribs painted with a dark, full-flavored sauce.
