Before the United Center was bursting with delicious food options from vendors like the folks behind Big Star, you knew better than to come anywhere near the UC without having eaten first. Food options were limited with the exception of the Billy Goat Tavern. A greasy burger joint that was cash only for most of its run. It's synonymous with the Cubs due to the “billy goat curse,” and gained national prominence with an SNL skit by Jim Belushi and Dan Aykroyd. Visit the Madison location before a game (or after while you wait for traffic to die down) or visit the Lower Wacker location for a true Chicago experience.
