Gear up for two great upcoming playoff runs as the Bulls and Blackhawks both take aim at titles. The United Center will be home for those games and more and there are lots of choices for you to eat up while you're there. We've compiled a guide of all the spots including our recommendations. So drop the nachos and try some of the items that would keep Derrick Rose and Jonathan Toews fueled and happy, such as Sweet Baby Ray's baby back ribs, or a loaded mac & cheese dog.

United Center’s Five Standouts

uc_brew_pub_large.jpgBudweiser Select Brew Pub and Carvery: Enjoy a full bar featuring specialty beers and fresh carved sandwiches including turkey, corned beef, roast beef and pesto caprese. Also stop in for live music before the game. [Section 108]

bar%20one.pngBar One: A full sports bar with an appetizers menu in an urban lounge setting, perfect for a quick stop-and-go without missing a second of the action. [Section 119]

smokehouse%20uc.jpgSweet Baby Ray's Smokehouse & BBQ: Enjoy Sweet Baby Ray’s barbecue offerings that include pulled pork sandwich, smoked turkey sandwich, brisket sandwich and their famous baby back ribs. [Section 119]

iron%20works.pngIron Works Bar and Grill: Grab a bite to eat without missing a second of the action as the spot features 2 plasma screens. Grab a steak or Chi-Town chicken club sandwich served up with 7 different beers and have a seat in the casual seating area overlooking the Chicago skyline. [Section 309]

loaded%20dog.jpgLoaded Dog: Ditch the plain old regular hot dog and spice it up with some flavors such as mac & cheese and jalapenos. [Section 205]
