I frequently travel to Chicago from the west coast and, regardless of how long or short my trip may be, a visit to the Onion Pub in Barrington is always a must on my agenda! The Onion's expansive, ever-evolving menu is sure to please even the finickiest patron, while the site-based brews offer a delicious reprieve from boring, any-bar beers.
Despite the Onion's many changes since my initial Onion-Christening over ten years ago (outside patio seating; flat-screen televisions; an ever expanding menu; a large banquet room ideal for weddings, anniversaries, surprise parties, retirement parties...), it continues to maintain the intimacy, comfort, and familiarity of a favored, "hole-in-the-wall" pub--especially on evenings that feature local, live music!
The Onion is, without a doubt, a ten-er!!
