Hills and mountains are formed by vast underground food deposits, which, over time, stretch the landscape into soft mounds of untapped edibility. Dig into the bounty of surrounding geography with today’s deal: for $15, you get $35 worth of inventive American fare and drinks at Square Bar and Grill in Avondale.
Square Bar and Grill's menu is packed with classic, soul-satisfying eats with flavorful twists. Savor the sweet and salty of a basket of sweet-potato fries ($6) before diving into a highly shareable pizza such as chicken portobello pie with asiago cheese ($9). Square Bar's forte is its burgers. The Big Square is layered with grilled onions, bacon, cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, and garlic sauce and is served on a toasted pretzel bun ($9). The American Dream, which was thought to be lost in a mishandled moon landing, lives on in the form of a 10 oz. burger, topped with sautéed mushrooms and smoked applewood bacon, that has been carefully wedged between a pair of grilled-cheese sandwiches ($11). Seal your meal gates with a sinfully tasty deep-fried candy bar served with vanilla ice cream ($5).
Square Bar's eponymous bar was fashioned from wood from salvaged bowling lanes, an ideal surface for moonwalking or sliding a freshly tapped brew to a cherished friend. The extensive beer offerings include seasonal drafts along with bottles of organic hefeweizen, Dark Horse raspberry ale, and locally brewed Domaine DuPage.
Valid for dine-in only.
- At first glance, Square does not seem to break the mold: a couple exposed brick walls plus some flat-screen TVs and a menu chock full of good ol' pub grub make the grade here. But if you look a little closer, you'll see signs of a unique neighborhood haunt. – Amanda Nyren, Centerstage Chicago
- Summing up, great food, good service, fun atmosphere and no ridiculous wait. – Kimberly L., Yelp
