Big Chicks has a "neighborhood bar" feel that lacks the bells and whistles of the trendier Halsted Street gay bars. For many of the bar's clientele, that is a selling point, not a hindrance. Also popular are the 50-cent midnight shots on the weekends and free Sunday dinners. On weeknights, Big Chicks is popular with the after-work crowd, where regulars saddle-up to the bar and have a pleasant chat with the bartenders. The place is packed during the weekends, so it is easy to find entertainment in the crowds.
