Heineken Pub 97
Unless you’re a soccer player or fan, Heineken Pub 97 might not be on your bar rounds. Adjacent to the Chicago Fire practice pitch, the bar draws a specific clientele. But even if soccer isn’t your sport, the trip is worth it for the chips alone. Their housemade Fire Pitch Chips are the kind of crispy, crave-able snack that will have you shamelessly gobbling handful after handful. They are smoky, spicy and salty, a true “Fire” staple. They come as a side with an entrée order, but don’t be afraid to just ask for a basketful à la carte.
