    Old Chicago PizzaClarksville, TN – Lunch at Old Chicago Pasta and Pizza at 2815 Wilma Rudolph Boulevard in Clarksville has a menu that should give everyone a favorite selection.

    My lemonade was just right as was my lunch partner’s iced tea. Other drink choices included refreshers like red berry sparkle, ginger-pomegranate sparkler, energy drinks, root beer, sodas, juices and a full range of beers, ales, lagers, cocktails and wines.
