$12 buys a First Responder a sandwich and side, delivered personally by Bobby McGuire or Top Butch McGuire’s staff.

#ctuactstrike – What We Are Doing for the Teachers Strike

October 21st, 2019 Posted by Special Offers 0 thoughts on “#ctuactstrike – What We Are Doing for the Teachers Strike”

We all had that one teacher (or maybe several) that really made a difference in our education, or in the life of someone we love. Butch had many.

We know that the CTU Strike is tough on everyone in the community – teachers, students, and parents alike. So we hope to provide a little relief for everyone to have a good meal, or a decompressing beverage after a long day with kids at home or on the picket lines.

That’s why THIS WEEK ONLY (Tuesday, Oct 21 – Friday, Oct 25) we are offering 20% off of your bill, with food purchase, for any CPS Teachers, staff, or students! Parents, bring the kids by for a nice lunch and get ’em out of the house. Teachers we know this is tough – come and warm up and relax!

Please provide a teacher or student ID and ask your server about the special.

Holiday Special… Butch McGuire’s Limited Edition Ornaments for Mercy!

Holiday Special… Butch McGuire’s Limited Edition Ornaments for Mercy!


$12 each or 2 for $20

All proceeds benefit Chicago Mercy Home for Boys and Girls

We also collect toiletries for Mercy Home all month. So if you are planning on coming in, consider bringing something to add.
What’s with the decorations?
Our Christmas decorations started many years ago when Butch himself bought all the decorations Goldblatt’s department store was getting rid of. His friendly regular Chicago Firemen decided to help deck out the bar and the ceiling was the best place to do it. Now we have tens of thousands of lights, custom holiday mobiles and a lot of festive spirit. We also run two double-decker trains around the bar, and all the train cars you see are part of our commitment to Chicago Mercy Home for Boys and Girls. Each train car advertiser donates hundreds of dollars to Mercy Home to circle the track. Every year we are proud to raise over $15,000 for a great cause.
Since we dedicate so much energy to the decorations, we ask 2 things of you…

Don’t touch them, they are not toys.

When you are finished with your meal, please let us give another family the chance to sit and eat. You are welcome to drink at the bar but tables are for eating! Thank you.

Why doesn’t Butch’s accept reservations?

We’ve been open since 1961, and after 56 years, we are honored to have many generations who consider Butch’s part of their holiday tradition. In fairness to all, we seat on a first come first serve basis. Your party must be complete to be seated.

How long are the decorations up?

The trains, lights and the rest of it all are up until mid-January. If you want to book your holiday party then, please contact us.

Are kids welcome?

During the day, kids are always welcome (except St. Pat’s and parade day) and we have a kids menu. From Thanksgiving through Jan 2nd, after 6pm it is no longer appropriate for kids, the atmosphere is too rowdy.

Do you book parties in December?

We do not book parties in December.

Happy Holidays!
