USW: The Truth Shall Set You Free
6242 S Western Ave, Chicago, IL 60636
Smitty’s is a South Side dive bar, somewhat popular with the University of Chicago set. (Although most of them probably prefer Woodlawn Tap or The Pub; you’re probably a little less likely to get knifed there, at least.) Despite a brief dalliance with Jamaican food (back when it was branded, appropriately enough, “Jamaican” in the late ‘00s), Smitty’s largely offers cheap beers and pub grub.
