"Great place. Good for families on weekends. Good for a beer and a game in the evening. Great takeout during the shutdown. (It's not on the menu - but you have to try the "Chisholm" burger).

"Totally worth the 45 minute drive from the Fox Valley for one of Old School's juicy burgers and fresh cut fries. We had a COVID-19 picnic in our car! My daughter loved the delicious Mac n Cheese. Thanks Old School for the great meal and a fun memory."

- Josh C

"I love this place. The food and the beer menu change to keep things fresh. The owner Ted is a great guy and knowledgeable about food and craft beer. A great place to have a good meal and a few drinks. Prices are reasonable."

Old School is a gem of Forest Park. Always reliable with reasonable prices and friendly people working there, it's my go-to when I want to hang out at a bar. I actually had the Nashville Chicken Sandwich and it was great. Speaking of, I asked the waitress if that was the daily special (since it was listed as such on the menu) and she said, "Oh, if that was up there, the website hasn't been updated since before Covid." It might be time to do a little website work ;) Other than that, love the place.
