Five star, if a dive bar is allowed to get five! Get Old Style, a shot of Malört and tater tots!

I'm rarely in Pilsen, but when I do go down south you can usually find me at the Skylark. The bar has all the charm of an old school VFW without the smell of smoke and formaldehyde getting in the way. It's usually not too crowded, the drinks are affordable and everyone loves the tots (and their accompanying dipping sauces). I've even taken a friend there for dinner BEFORE getting drunk. I've also had their burger save me from myself on many late night occasions. BONUS: They have a working photo booth that is way more reliable than the one at Rainbo in Wicker Park.

The place is pretty cool, but the fact it's cash only isn't very fun when the atm is broken.. ¬_¬

This is the first Chicago bar I fell for, when visiting my cousin but before I moved here. Total dive. The floor is literally slanted. They have an old-school photo booth where you wait 3 minutes for your print, they smell like chemicals and they're black and white. I've never had any food here but tater tots ... which you absolutely need. They're like $3 for a mountain of tots with three dipping sauces. Cash only.

Two friends of mine decided to try this place out because they had heard about the burgers and the fried chicken. I got an invite on this little adventure and was excited to try something new. I got the fried chicken, mashed potatoes and side salad. Got a coke on the side. The coke was flat as a tired after going over one of those spike strips. The fried chicken was very crispy and made with panko crust. I didn't love the taste. It had a fried fish taste to it. The food was all luke warm. Salad was the best thing on my plate. Looks like they had some great drink specials. Might stop back for that but never food again.

Tater tots. Beer. Quirky crowd and atmosphere. That about sums up Skylark. Be aware that I chose to put tater tots before their amazing beer selection and prices. Great place to visit after Pilsen's gallery walks on the second Friday of each month. Also don't be quick to judge their entrees from their decor as they have some delicious options outside simple bar food.
