Players flock to this Portage Park cafe for the billiards, but a BYOB policy and filling eats add to the experience. In the low-lit hall with exposed brickwork, you’ll find pool tables and an antique snooker table, all of which can be rented by the hour. Between games, grab a quick bite at the counter-service cafe, which serves hot dogs, popcorn shrimp, burgers and sausages. All-American fried apps include onion rings, mozzarella sticks and pizza puffs, and desserts get a dip in the deep fryer too--choose from deep-fried Twinkies, Oreos and candy bars. Not a pool player? Hang by the jukebox, partake in some pinball or catch a local game on TV.
