Devoted entirely to beer and bacon, Paddy Long’s creates a meat-lover’s haven, with options sure to amaze. If the extensive menu of bacon-grease good dishes isn’t enticing enough (but spoiler: it is pretty enticing) schedule a beer and bacon tasting, which pairs five seasonal beers with five specialty cuts of bacon.

You can find Paddy Long’s at 1028 W Diversey Pkwy.

We have a bomb to drop: it’s called Kaiser Tiger’s Bacon Bomb, a whopping 2 pounds of ground beef encased in a basket weave of 16 greasy bacon slices. Tuck in and defuse this tasty explosive, then work off the pounds at one of the restaurant’s three winter ice curling rinks right outside in the beer garden.

You can find Kaiser Tiger at 1415 West Randolph Street.

Three words: cup o’ bacon. For the days that demand hearkening back to a simpler time, striving for perfection, and perfect house-smoked flavor, that’s where Wollensky’s Grill takes the reins to serve up crispy perfection in a cup, with a side of bleu cheese dip. Nothing else required for divine happiness than that.

You can find Wollensky’s Grill at 318 North State Street.
