The Scene: Happy hour at Cicero's is relegated to the far side of the dining room, a lower-level seating area lit mostly by the glow of a projection screen displaying the game. Small groups seem to huddle in corners here while lone barflies grab a seat closest to the refreshments -- a wooden bar with a whopping 55 beers on tap. Non-regulars might have to throw some elbows to get an order in here, whether it's to place an food order or to simply grab a beer.

The Food: Cicero's offers sixteen different food items on its happy-hour menu, ranging from $1.50 to $6.59. Choose from typical fried options including beer-battered onion rings, toasted ravioli and three kinds of chicken -- wings, tenders and bites. Other selections, like spinach-artichoke and buffalo-chicken dips, seem pretty standard, too. We opted to begin with the item that seemed most unique to the restaurant's standard Italian-American menu -- loaded pizza chips.
