About The Illini Inn

From the looks of The Illini Inn's loft-like industrial interiors, out-of-the-loop diners would be surprised to learn of this classic dives' old-school history. Opened in 1970, this University of Illinois watering hole was long famous for sticky floors and the Mug Club, which has 96,000 members and counting. Its relocation in 2018 coincided with a revamp of the American-style menu and extended hours that now include lunch service.

  • The bar: 12 draft beer taps serve local crafts, such as Riggs from Urbana, plus the more affordable styles familiar to the college crowd
  • Illini Grinders: a highlight of these specialty sandwiches include the "The Big W," mortadella, salami, capicola, turkey, bacon, provolone and cheddar cheeses, topped with mayo and giardinera peppers
  • Pizzas at the Inn: made to order on hand-tossed dough or their signature thin crust; the Inn also serves readymade pizzas from midnight until 2 a.m.
