Editorial Review of Blue Frog 22

Roomier than the original Blue Frog on LaSalle Street, this expanded new location is a step up from your typical dive bar (and the original location). Complete with wide windows and starched tablecloths, it keeps to the dive bar roots with a constellation of neon signs, sport team logos and TVs that appear along the walls.

Incorporating elements that have long made the original location a favorite among Chicagoans – Michael Jordan is often a visitor – enthusiasts come to break loose with a little karaoke (five nights a week) or crowd around bustling tables, full with weekenders jostling over a game of Operation, Uno or Candyland.

The bar boasts a wide selection of beers and cocktails, with a menu that crosses between American and Mexican fare. Blue Frog 22's selection of specials includes burgers like the spicy and mild jerk burger ($9.95), a half-pounder marinated in spices and served with a side of mild dill sauce and pasta salad. There are some vegetarian menu options, but the focus is on a hearty and filling American favorites.

A full kitchen is open till 11 p.m. but you can still snag a platter from the bar food menu of mini tacos, burgers or nachos that can be ordered all the way up to midnight.

Average cost: <$10
