About
We travelled across America’s wide highways to find the best burger, the best barbecue and as our newest passion: the best deep dish pizza. In every genre we have found our favourites, and the time has come to introduce them at one place. This is how I55 American Bar & Restaurant was born and had got its name after the highway Interstate 55, which divides America from North to South.

We arrived at he evening and were told that without reservation there is no space but few minutes after a free table was found. The food is average but the problem was with our waitress that didn't pay attention to our reservation which led to...two returns of an hamburger. A major disappointment as we had to wait almost half an hour to eat. The manager of the restaurant who knew about the incidents didn't offer a remedy (but agreed to waive the already added 15% service)More

Having worked in Chicago, I was excited to see that they offer deep dish pizzas. Honestly, they are ok, but certainly not like the original. I don’t mean like their lack of butter crust, etc. which they not have but the issue I find most...is the lack of tomato sauce. Thus it taste quite dry. Overall not bad but certainly far away from a deep dish pizza from Chicago. Staff was nice.More

The food is absolutely delicious here, there is wide variety of steaks, pizzas, BBQ and grill foods and pizzas. They even serve deep dish pizza Chicago style, which is for at least 2-3 person. The stuff is lovely and the environment is amazing. They even...have weekly menu for lower price.More

Waited 20 minutes for a drink, and over 45 mins for food. Floor manager came over to apologise twice. Unfortunately food was very average - especially compared to all the other restaurants during our trip which were all excellent, this was very average unfortunately. Waitress...offered free pudding to compensate for long wait but we didn’t like pudding options, we were not offered alternative eg money off bill. When we paid, waiter never brought back change 🤦🏼‍♀️ it wasn’t the worst meal ever, but considering how many fantastic restaurants we ate at…. Would deffo recommend going elsewhere!More

A busy and friendly upbeat bar and restaurant In central budapest. Large selection of drinks and cocktails which are all more than reasonably priced. Sirloin steak and nachos were also brilliant. Highly recommend.

Ate here with family last night. Good vibe, busy restaurant with loud music and friendly wait staff. Had made a reservation but did appear to be taking walk ins. Good selection of draft beers and ales and also served wine and good gin menu (unsure...about cocktails as I didn’t order). Food was only okay - I had chicken salad, others had burger (which was cold) and pulled pork sandwich (came in a bun). We didn’t eat dessert. Experience was only average, won’t be returning or recommending given the wide range of fabulous eateries in the city.More

Must have once in your life. It was the Chicago deep dish pizza, spin-up chicken, with the recommendation of the waiter. Its enough for 1-3 person. Sooooooo good.
