Hawkeye's Bar & Grill
Posted by b on 05/24/2007
Hawkeye's is one of the major hangouts for UIC students (and Chicago PD). The food is decent, and the place is generally a good time on a Thursday or Friday night. Don't plan on having a happy Designated Driver, though, as they're nearly spend as much on pop as you will on beer with their poor policy of expensive pop and no free refills. You can get a can or bottle of beer cheaper than a pop many nights of the week, and a pitcher of beer is always cheaper than pop pint-for-pint. It seems like poor policy and a lack of social conscious from this establishment. At a recent visit for lunch we were given a sandwich version of a wrap we ordered, which included fries instead of the fruit cup. The waitress seemed disinterested in the fact we received the wrong food, and even after we said we would manage by just taking off the bread, making it a wrap ourselves if she could get us a wrap and a fruit cup. She came back, and asked if we could just make due with what was there because "they were running low on wraps". Not out, just running low. Our stunned silence was only ended after she also asked if she could charge us for the fruit cup. Absolute madness.
