About this Article

Sandwiched between a gas station and a car lot, Union Ale House in Prospect Heights is easy to miss if you're driving by. But this family-owned spot, which took over Runway's' former location in June, is worth seeking out. The chef calls on his Southern roots to prepare fresh, high-quality food, and the extensive beer selection includes many local brews. And with 20 50-inch TVs, the bar should be a draw for sports fans, too.
