Review coming soon... In the meantime, you might like to know that Archie's is now run by Katrina, daughter of the original owner. According to an article in the Sun-Times, "Archie's has Chicago liquor license No. 177. It has been serving booze at the corner of Iowa and Rockwell since 1943. Polka legend Lil' Wally and his band performed in the tavern in the late 1950s, and in 1991 Chicago's iconic country band the Sundowners played a gig at the bar for owner Archie Boraca's 60th birthday."
