This is a nice place to get German food and a beer but itís not really going to excite the beer geeks out their as far as beer selection. It is all German and stuff that is for the most part easy to find in bottles. To me, it is nice to try some of these beers in something close to their native context. There is something special about sitting back and enjoying a full liter of lager w/ some very good German food. There are very few places besides here and Resiís in town who have a selection of this type of beer and can move it fast enough that it is consistently fresh. Worth a trip for the food and to relax but not at all the place to go to if you are in from out of town and looking to wrack up some ratings of beers you canít get elsewhere, even if they will taste better here than anywhere else. Oh, and donít leave this place, w/o trying a pretzel.

I love Resiís so wanted to come to the place just down the block. Similar style inside with a real cool old school customer feel, they all know each other. Old WW2 and German antiques line the walls, you could look at them for hours. Decent selection of German beers, but way to heavy on the pils, only 1 dark beer. The thing that separates this in the most negative way possible from Resiís is the food. The food here just plain sucks. 1st of all the menu is so dumb downed American its sickening. Chicken tends, egg rolls and onion rings are just the tip of the iceberg of crap that shouldnít be on this menu. Ignoring this I went for some staples of red cabbage and potato pancakes. The cabbage was great. The pancakes were a step above frozen ones Iíd get at Jewel. They werenít fresh or made there, just plain sad. This place should never be visited with Resiís 100 feet away.

Laschetís is a timeless German classic, one of few left when there were dozens of German places along Lincoln Ave. once upon a time. You come here for the hearty authentic food, old country ambiance, and German bier. They occasionally have seasonals no one else gets. The Saturday pork shank special is not to be missed. If you donít eat when visiting Laschetís, youíre doing it wrong. Prissy metro douchebags, stay far away. Laschetís doesnít have a GNR award from LTHforum without good reason. http://www.lthforum.com/bb/viewtopic.php?t=4089 Eat, drink, and be merry.

Laschetís Inn is a nice German bar that serves excellent beers on draft. Their food has been better the past few years, but I am particularly interested in what they pour. Nice staff, fair pricing... I like!

I stopped by Laschetís Inn after visiting Resiís across the street. The beer selection is pretty similar, with a couple of different German taps. The place was crowded and the food looked pretty good, but I didnít try any. I enjoyed my time here and Iíll likely be back.

Very cool German pub in North Chicago. A pretty decent selection of German beer on tap and great food.

What can I say but this place is awesome. It is one of the great Chicago neighborhood bars and it is also a top German beer destination and it also has crazy good German food. The owners are in there hanging out all the time and are a very nice couple. SEEK this place out

blue-collar, noisy, dirty. lots of beer but little to get excited about, unless you really love warsteiner and paulaner.

As authentic German as you can score in Chicago. Great German selection, always try a pretzel (puts most to absolute shame) and get the rouladen.
