Merkle's Bar & GrillWrigleyville
Map | Find Parking
This Wrigleyville bar and grill opened Dec. 2004 (in a former Billy Goat tavern) to serve classic American fare, including homemade burgers and fries, three different flavors of wings, chicken sandwiches, wraps and warm chocolate chip cookies, served with a cold glass of milk. Dark mahogany wood, a marble bar and rare black and white photos give the place a nostalgic feel, but the 11 plasma HDTVs keep this tavern in the present day. Steps from Wrigley Field, Merkle's is a pre- and post-game spot for Cub fans and plays host to loyal Illinois and Iowa alumni.
