When we landed in Chicago, I was starving. It was still pretty early in the morning and wasn't time for our lunch reservation yet. So as we walked towards our hotel from the train station, we passed by a sign for none other that the Billy Goat Tavern. I was immediately excited because I knew it was serving burgers at this hour. So we dropped off our luggage and headed straight there. We were practically the only patrons there at that hour. But shortly after more people came in for the lunch rush.
I got the ever so popular double cheeseburger and a side of chips. For toppings and condiments, there's a self serve bar. I opted for ketchup and pickles. And oh did that hit the spot. Two thin beef patties on a crusty kaiser roll type soft bun. Some ketchup and pickles for tang.
