    Wait was about 90 minutes on Saturday at 9, but there are plenty of establishments nearby that you can wait at. (FYI: Edelweiss has karaoke on Saturday night)
    Edelweiss was one of the venues from which I was ejected! Yet I had already managed to order a beer {A 16-oz. can of Miller High Life [$5.00]}, and sign up for a karaoke song. Nope, that was it. It wanted me out of there.


    Wow, expelled from 2 different establishments on the same evening for being over served, and yet you claim you were not. You being overserved is in some way, shape, or form is their fault??? What world do you live in that either place is at fault and why would you disparage either? Totally unfair


    Agree. Booted from 2 joints, stuffing a menu in your coat pocket from one of them for some reason. ?

    WTF.

    Ain't no doubt about it, Warlord is my favorite restaurant in Chicago.

    This past Monday, got in line at 5:56pm. Made it to the front at 6:22 and were the last 4-top to make first seating.

    of all the dishes ordered at Warlord, this was the only one that dining companions weren't all that interested in ordering. After the dish hit the table, I had to fight for a second bite.

    dry aged burger and fries
    charred onion, mayonnaise

    I still think this is my favorite burger in town.

    10oz aged ribeye
    roasted onion, horseradish, 33 days
    Image
    funky, unctuous, a lovely bit of char. Perfect.

    lacquered fatty duck
    pickles from the larder, 30 days
    Image
    A showstopper. I don't see any other dish even coming close to beating this one for top dish of 2024. The skin, seasoning, smokiness...I'm at a loss for words on how exactly to describe just how incredible this duck was.

    Just an incredible meal from start to finish. Dining companions said this was the best meal they've had in about 10 to 15 years.

    I will also mention that we were definitely under the impression we were not going to make first seating and already had plans to get in some bowling at nearby Avondale Bowl while we waited. Recently awarded The Bareksten Best Bar Design Award 2024 by North America's 50 Best Bars. Instead, we stopped in for a nightcap. The bar is absolutely gorgeous and was completely empty other than our party. If you need a place to wait for Warlord, this is a great choice.

    Holy crap is this correct. Per our server, the seasoning is fennel pollen and shoyu. I definitely got the anise smell as soon as it was put on our table. I was gnawing the bones at the end of our meal, which was at the end of a very long day of eating. At $62 for half a duck, dare I say this 30-day dry aged bird is a bargain?

    In the great minds think alike category, we planned for the second seating and reserved a lane from 7:00 to 8:00. We got to Warlord at 5:37 on Friday night and the people in front of us got the last table (we would've let others pass us in line if necessary). We got the text to come back to the restaurant at 8:08 and were seated a little after 8:30.

    Warlord is not a place for a quick meal no matter what time you go. When every table fills at the exact same time and every table stays full for at least two seatings (at least 3 on Friday and Saturday), backups in the kitchen are inevitable. Prepare accordingly.
