True to its meat-loving Chicagoland roots, TCs Pub grills up deep-fried, bacon-wrapped hot dogs and stuffed burgers that are so big you can barely hold them together, let alone bite them. The sports pub is fresh off a recent remodeling, but the chefs still sling handcut french fries, ribeye sandwiches, and gooey pizza puffs that have kept locals and visitors coming back. Fresh salads and fried zucchini offer a vegetarian-friendly alternative. Diners can wash down their meal with one of the 28 beers that are on tap, or sip from an extensive selection of ciders, with flavors that include black cherry, peach, and pear. Game night and beer pong are some of the weekly events. On the weekends, people pack the dance floor to shimmy to live DJ and band music, or the syncopated clinking of spoons and forks.

Whether it's the Cubs, the White Sox, or the Bears, patrons at Tailgaters can count on their favorite team being shown on at least one of the bar's 40 televisions. But anyone who can read the name of the tavern could guess that. What they might not guess is that Tailgaters is a favorite destination of both local bands and touring acts. From indie rockers Sponge to Southern rockers the Marshall Tucker band to Metallica-esque rockers Blackened, the bands that play this small stage get up close and personal with fans as they dig into gourmet burgers, deep-fried chicken wings, and rib-sticking bar food.

Flashing lights pulsate to thumping beats as smoke rises from a DJ booth framed by projection screens and swaying bodies. Though it may seem like a scene out of a movie, this energetic setting actually takes place seven nights a week at Bobby McGee's. And to keep their lively parties grooving until the wee hours, the South Side staple curates festive party themes, such as a Black Out Fridays and the occasional Hawaiian luau, which boasts an inflatable surfing game and real-life boars wandering through the crowd. Weekend concerts enliven the already convivial mood, as do bag tournaments, live band karaoke, and charity events to support causes such as cancer research.

When not catering to the party crowd, Bobby McGee's transforms the spacious dance area into bar room filled with stools and tables. Diners can dig into half-pound burgers and specialty pizzas topped with buffalo shrimp, and those craving a south-of-the-border meal can turn to the menu's Tex-Mex dishes of buffalo chicken quesadillas and beef nachos. These bar eats can be paired with weekly drink specials, from Old Style beer to shots, or the bar's signature 32-ounce long island drink served in a mason jar.
