Start the weekend off right by stopping by Old Republic!


Old Republic is an American Kitchen and Bar that features specialties from across the country. Everything served to you is made in-house. They even smoke their own meats! The kitchen is impeccable, and we can prove it. Earlier this year we published a poll for our community to answer the question of who has the best burger in the Elgin area. We got that answer and Old Republic is one of them! With literally thousands of votes backing them up, it’s something to try if you haven’t yet! Visit the full ranked list- Best Burgers in the Elgin Area. Round our your order with a delicious cocktail or a fan favorite draft that are available everyday and experience their great service.

Entertainment is another factor that makes Old Republic stand out. It’s best to check into their Facebook page for events. New events are always being added to the line-up. Live music, and movie nights are currently scheduled for October. Stop by to enjoy the music or watch one of your favorite Halloween movies this month!

This summer they grew their outdoor space so socially distancing and having fun could be done at the same time. Enjoy the new patio space before it gets too cold! Looking at the picture it’s obvious the effort they poured into this project so they could continue while being safe. Old Republic loves the community and have taken the initiative to help others throughout the year, which earned them a mention as a Hometown Hero.

Old Republic has recently built and igloo over their outdoor dining area to ensure service during the colder weather.

Some nearby stops include Marcus Cinema Theatre, and The Highlands of Elgin Golf Course.
