Billy Goat II

Like its darker, subterranean brother off North Michigan Avenue, this Billy Goat tavern serves up the cheeseburgers made famous by a 1970s ''Saturday Night Live'' TV skit. The quick grill technique of the cook means the burgers are ready in no time, so the Goat is a popular lunch spot for busy traders. Afternoons, the place gets busy again with municipal workers and more traders hashing over the day and having a draft or two. To earn a free drink, try to pronounce the mile-long Greek name painted on the wall across from the taxidermied goat head behind the bar.
