Tommy Gun’s Garage

Everytime I think back to my experience at Tommy Gun’s all I can do is shake my head and laugh.  In all honesty, I had no idea what to expect.  The website mentions something about the roaring twenties, gangsters, and flappers.  With that said, here is how it started…we get out of the cab, look around and start to wonder, umm are we at the right place?  There isn’t any signage, so make sure you have access to the address number.  We walked up to the door (which we hoped was right), knocked, and were asked the secret password.  Thank god we remembered (“Little Jake Sent Us”)…Well that is how it started.  Once inside, the atmosphere was great.  You can’t get any better than an outgoing wait staff who offers non stop entertainment.  They were always willing to go that extra mile to make sure we had everything we needed.  It was really impressive was that while they served us, the waiters and waitresses were also the actual performers….hats off to them.  As far as the food, well, I hate being harsh, but I have to honest, it wasn’t that great.  I wasn’t terrible by any means, but it wasn’t worth the bill of over $100.00 we paid at the end of the night.  For the after dinner performance, it was quite comical.  The host was awesome.  I would not recommend this for actual Chicagoans, but for tourists looking for a good laugh and something fun and different to do, swing on by.
