“We are excited to bring our new location to Tyler.  Being the Craft Beer Authority is allowing us to bring in some of the most unique beers available from some of the best national and local breweries.  Since 1976 we’ve been serving handcrafted pizzas, made from scratch, every day. That is expertise you can taste!” states General Manager Scott Wilson of the restaurant opening.

More importantly, one restaurant staple that will not be on the menu is their strong commitment to giving back to its community. Not only will Old Chicago be joining the restaurant scene in Tyler but it will also be joining the city’s commitment to offer its residents a better and brighter future by partnering with the Literacy Council of Tyler.  Representatives from the Literacy Council will be on-site during all three of Old Chicago’s pre-opening dinners to spread the word and help raise charitable contributions.
