Famous taproom starters such as the Sicilian Pepperoni Rolls, and the one-of-a-kind Italian Nachos will also be sure to delight guests in Rogers.
over 40 draft beers available, more than 90 craft beers available on the
menu and a beer expert always on staff, The Craft Beer Authority has something
for everyone! “We are excited and proud to bring the Craft Beer Authority
to Rogers. We know our guests will love our Mini Tours, Explorer Series,
and discovering new and unique brews, some of the best local and regional
Arkansas beers around, or enjoying their local favorite!” states General

One restaurant staple that will not be on the menu is their strong commitment to giving back to the community. Old Chicago Rogers has partnered with Arkansas Children’s Hospital Foundation, where they will be donating proceeds from the pre-opening events on October 26th to October 28th to the local nonprofit. Representatives from Arkansas Children’s Hospital Foundation will be on-site to help raise charitable contributions. In addition, from 10/30/17-11/12/17, Old Chicago will donate $1 from every Chicago 7 pizza sold to add to the Arkansas Children’s Hospital Foundation donation total. “Come help us achieve our goal of raising over $5k for Arkansas Children’s Hospital.” states Couture.
“It’s an exciting time to be a part of the Old Chicago family, and we are excited to open our second location,” says AJ and Sefali Nursariwala, principals of The Nursariwala Group, a franchisee group with an Old Chicago location in Joplin, Missouri. “Sports on our TVs and craft beer always flowing.
