“Jack's Firehouse is a true old firehouse, with a crew boat mounted above the bar, and a fireman's pole in the back. Its a cool spot to sit outside next to the Penitentiary where Al Capone was incarcerated. There are really friendly bar tenders who play DJ in evenings to a great mix of music. Entrees and appetizers are good, and there is seating in the back as well. Note: there are no TV's. ”

“It might look like the average neighborhood bar at first, but Era distinguishes itself by offering an Ethiopian menu full of traditional dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Check out the dorowat chicken slow-cooked in a flavorful red pepper sauce; or kitfo, steak tartare flavored with traditional berbere spice.”
