The Piggery is known to be one of the top bar and grills in Chicago. The restaurant is a corner building on Irving Park around the Lake View area. Walking into The Piggery, you’re automatically greeted by the scent of flavorful food.

The lighting is set low because lined around the whole restaurant are big screen TV’s, so that there are multiple sports games for customers to enjoy watching while they eat. There is a huge bar, which contains almost every type of liquor there is out there, set up along the side of the restaurant.  


The Piggery is officially recognized for their Cuban sandwich. The amount of food served per plate it definitely worth the price. Attending The Piggery, one of the waitresses recommended the pulled pork burger. This contains two burgers stuffed with barbecue pulled pork. The pulled pork has a sweet and tangy taste that is especially one, it is also topped off with lettuce, tomato, and a soft bread at the top and bottom. It has a sweet, but soft taste and texture. As a side, it is automatically served with fries unless you desire something else. Each fry is made crisp and flavorful for every bite.


This bar and grill is frequently packed, which is always a positive thing, with people that are trying it for the first time or people who have come back to enjoy the classic taste of The Piggery. Since there is a bar inside of the restaurant, there are multiple waitresses that work there to ensure that each and every  one of their dine-in customers are satisfied. The Piggery is definitely a go to restaurant for families and friends.

The Piggery serves different styles of food from tacos to eggrolls, burgers, Cuban sandwiches, and so much more.

The Pulled Pork burger is one of the best and is served with fries or whatever topping you would like.
