This place is run by the same folks who own Scofflaw, and it’s located right around the corner in Logan Square. Scofflaw has limited options for food, but Moonlighter has an extensive menu of things like waffle fries, nachos, and burgers. The appetizers here are good as far as drinking food goes (just greasy and cheesy enough, but maybe a little too salty), and the burgers also happen to be excellent. The indoor and outdoor fireplaces are great for wintertime, and the gigantic outdoor area is an ideal summer hangout. It’s not worth a special trip, but it’s perfectly fine for what it is.
