    Italian Grinder with Ale Crust

    Old Chicago Pizza & Tap Room in North Fort Worth provides a new spot for late-night workers (or late-night cravings), offering a menu full of variety and an array of beers on tap.

    The new-to-the-area restaurant is, of course, open for lunch and dinner, but they are one of a few spots in the booming area offering a complete menu to customers until 2 a.m. every day (the kitchen closes at 1 a.m. but the restaurant doesn't close until 2 a.m.).

    Their pizza is loaded with toppings and served with two crust options: Chicago Thick (made with a cornmeal crust) or Ale (made with flour and a hint of brown ale).

    They even have a late-night "Pub Pizza," which is an individual size option for only $2.

    Their menu also offers a variety of sandwiches, salads and appetizers but just a heads up for Chicago-style pizza lovers - even though it’s got Chicago in the name they do not offer pizza in the traditional Chicago-style crust.

    Ironically, the original owners decided on the restaurant name from a pinball game machine. Even so, the “Chicago Thick” crust offered at this new restaurant is definitely worth considering a new take on the Chicago traditional.

    Not only is their food menu extensive, they pride themselves in building relationships with local businesses and have partnered with several local breweries to offer a wide selection of local beers to customers.

    Plans are underway for additional locations throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex.
