I'm not impressed!.
Bar on Buena is a decent bar for a neighborhood lacking in the bar scene. It is usually crowded and there is not much seating. The wait staff is slow, sometimes rude and not too knowledgeable on the variety of beers they carry. The food is just a bit better than your typical bar fare but not worth the wait. All in all I would say if you live in the area give it a try but don't expect much. And if you don't live in the area...DON'T BOTHER.
Best Neighborhood Bar.
The Bar on Buena is absolutely the best neighborhood bar anywhere in Chicago. The people who work there are very friendly, always remember you, and the food is great too. Very intimate setting , cozy, relaxing, great beer selections, the best Ketel One Dirty Martini's in the city and also only $6.00. Food is great, not real pricey. Just go already, go and experience it.
Great neighborhood hang.
This relaxed atmosphere of this bar keeps me coming back. Good bar food, love the hummus. Excellent beers, Hoegaarden and Stella on tap. Service can be slow, but if you are sitting back and enjoying yourself, what does it matter? Good jukebox selections and they roll down the big screen for the sports games. I watched the NCAA final here and it was great.
This neighborhood has been craving a place like this. The food is great and inventive for a bar. I think it's a good value and priced equivalently to any other place like it. Give it a try!
