Fodor's Review

For a taste of classic Chicago, stop into Twin Anchors, which has been dishing out baby back ribs since 1932. The nautically themed brick tavern was a favorite of Frank Sinatra, who still croons nightly on the jukebox. If you're not in the mood for a messy slab of mild or zesty ribs—they're the main draw on the menu—order the battered codfish fry or the roasted chicken. In truth, dinner here is really less about cuisine and more about the scene—local and touring celebs often visit—but lovers of barrooms with personality don't mind the typically long waits during prime time.
