A word from The Fifty/50
The Fifty/50 has been a Wicker Park staple since 2008. Our entire menu features scratch-made comfort food developed by industry veteran's Scott Weiner & Greg Mohr. Our 150 lb capacity smoker turns out great BBQ, while our house ground burger blend is considered one of the best in Chicago. Most well known for our Buffalo Wings, made with house made & aged hot sauce, which are also served at Wrigley Field. We look forward to seeing you at one of most fun sports bar scenes in West Town.

    The wings were fabulous. Would return to try the rest if the menu. Had out of town guests and wanted to see if the wings were truly memorable, they were. TV's were loud, but Bears were on so it's was ok with me

  • A surprise hit
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/15/2014
    We three adults and two teens needed a last minute dinner in our airbnb neighborhood. OpenTable brought us to this place, and it was a hit with all! Service was attentive and pleasant, and everybody gave great reviews to the pulled pork and burgers. I wouldn't bring the teens there later in the evening, but they enjoyed the slightly rowdy atmosphere of the 6:30 time period. Our only caution would be the music volume -- it will be too loud for some people.

    This is a great sports bar with good bar food ok beer selection but don't take your kids. Music was explicit and signage on bathroom door was graphic and my son was afraid to go in. However they did like the food and sports with in your face tv. Noise level is super loud. Great outdoor area and service was amazing. Would return maybe at an earlier hour or lunch with kids my son loved their jumbo wings or without them.

  • Unusually Bad Salad

    Dined on 5/16/2014
    I typically love the 50/50. Or at least like it. The food is above average for the sports bar scene. But I had a chicken something salad that was below average. The chicken was fatty and I swear I got some pork or steak in my salad. Waitress was so/so, too. Also atypical. I hope the next time is better.

    If you don't want one of those three things, this is not the restaurant for you. But they do burgers and beers very, very well! Highly recommend the O-Face (pulled pork with a patty and mac n' cheese waffle!).

    Went here for a birthday dinner with a party of 6. We got our own booth with a TV. The food was great, but the service was o.k. Didn't receive the drink that I ordered and was told that I was wrong and that they made the correct drink. Bartender made a huge deal about it and didn't want to make me a new drink.

    kudos to the fifty/50! I love the outdoor TVs - we watched the Hawks game while sitting outside. The food is always good (except I don't like the wings) and the waitress was awesome. The hostess was extremely flexible, too - setting us up with a switch of tables so we could better see the game. Now, if they'd get that 2nd outdoor TV fixed....

    Really nice place. It had really good food and the service was great. Music is loud like any other bar around. It was a great place to get some food and watch the Bulls game.

    Great burger and service. Everyone was on top of their game. Food came quickly, and hot. I will be back. My wife also enjoyed her wrap. Friendly servers and staff. Cool spot.
