  • Mullens Bar & Grill
    Five Things to Know About Mullen's Bar and Grill Although it now has four locations spread across Illinois (and one in Pittsburgh), Mullen's Bar and Grill still feels like a corner bar. Like any good corner bar, that means plenty of hearty grub and cold beer (which comes in both craft and macro varieties). Yet there's far more to this institution than just another cold one. Read on to learn more. It was named after Jim Mullen. A family friend of the owners and an ex-police officer, Mullen was paralyzed in the line of duty, but continues his peace-keeping mission as a humanitarian and active member of the community. The menu stretches beyond bar fare. Entrees range from oven-baked mac 'n' cheese to a "Working Man" surf and turf, which pairs boneless beef short ribs with sauteed shrimp. There's plenty to do while you drink. Pool? Yep. Foosball? Sure. Darts? You bet your bull's-eye. Caber toss? No, but we like the way you think. You never have to miss a game. More than a dozen plasma TVs pair with projection screens to beam hot sports highlights straight into fans' brains. Mullen's supports local performers. That's why the bar hosts an open mic night, a karaoke night, and live music every week.
