About this Article

Twin Peaks, a Texas-based chain of sports bars where guests are waited on by attractive, scantily clad servers, opened its first Illinois location in February, taking over Claim Jumpers' former space on Milwaukee Avenue in Wheeling. The mix of ice-cold beers, plenty of TVs, big food and "scenic views" has proved a winning combination, bringing in huge crowds of guys.
