How can a restaurant that is known for its Italian food not carry Italian salad dressing? The lunch buffet is a real deal!l

I met a former coworker for dinner. The pizza was good, but nothing spectacular. If you like beer they have a large selection on their menu. There are plenty of other options on the menu if you don't want pizza.

Went here with my wife while shopping in the area for Christmas. Friendly staff. Genetic decor and aesthetics. Food was pretty good. We both had calzones and we split some cheese bread. They really do pack the calzones with really good ingredients, and the cheese bread was really good. They need to update the inside to be a really out... More

I was visiting a friend near Michigan State University and stopped in for a drink, appetizer, and football game in the bar area of this restaurant. The food was great...and so was the atmosphere. I will be back.

I went here for the happy hour, but stayed for the food. On my first visit I ordered a calzone, which was huge and very good. Second trip I ordered the Ruben sandwich. It was also very good. I will return.

Arrived with a large group for lunch on a week day. No wait to be seated and the service was good. I had the Mediterranean salad which was okay. Most teens in our party got the pizza buffet and enjoyed it. Lots of chicago memorabilia , hence the name Old Chicago. Being from Chicago this is not chicago style pizza... More

Old Chicago offers your typical bar food. It's tasty, portions are generous, but it isn't particularly healthy. Good for a change of pace.

We were driving through the Okemos area and decided to stop here for dinner. It was pretty good. Our waitress, Taylor, was sweet and visited us often to make sure we were doing okay. Our meals, there are five of us, arrived in a timely fashion. My husband and I had salads, which were delicious and filling. Our children had... More

The service is slow. We got drinks and sat there waiting. It was St. Patricks Day and the place did not look busy. We were here before dinner. We sat by the bar at a booth.

One large was big enough for 3 people. They were able to do one pizza with different halves of the "special" pizzas (Hawaiian and Mediterranean). Ale crust was a nice touch. Also able to split the bill 3 ways. Great service. Plenty of families here. I wish we had a pizza place like the at home.
