“Quality food, excellent drinks”

Bat 17, located in Evanston, IL, is a unique, upscale deli and pub, serving gourmet dishes, in a fun & casual atmosphere. Our burgers have won awards from local papers, and Ted Brunson, WGN-TV Chicago’s Best host, said we have some of the very best sandwiches in Chicago! Our pulled pork is made in house and we take a fine dining approach to the selection of all vendors and suppliers. All of our bread comes from Bennison’s Bakery and managed by Jory Downer, World Cup of Baking Gold Medalist and Certified Master Baker. Kelly Eisenberg from right here in Chicago supplies our mouth-watering lean corned beef and pastrami. At Bat 17 we are always having fun. We have pool tables, a photo booth, lots of space for private parties, and plenty of TVs for those sports fans. There are more than 60 beers in house, lots on draft, and a great wine and cocktail selection. Don’t forget to checkout our drink and food specials, and enjoy a complimentary gourmet coffee bar with all of our unique menu selections. If you have a special event coming up, we have convenient catering platters for any occasion. Ask us about our college gift cards, business catering pre-paid charge cards, or just plain gift cards.  Our goal is to give our customers an experience like no other beginning with the absolute best sandwiches on the planet and providing service that is second to none. So what are you waiting for? Come join the fun!

Bat 17 specializes in absolutely ginormous portion sizes of their very good sandwiches. The owners actually gathered a lot of their business model from world-renowned sandwich shop Zingerman's in Ann Arbor, and it shows. Every sandwich at Bat is expensive, but the quantity and quality that you receive makes it worth it. Bat 17 also has an extensive beer selection (any draft beer can also be ordered as a beer tower), and recently opened a side bar that doubles the space of Bat and provides beer, appetizers, pool tables, and TVs.

What a bar! Great beer selection, and mountainous sandwiches. Pricey? Maybe, but you get exactly what you pay for.
