As of April 2, 2021, our outdoor Beer Garden is officially open for the season (weather permitting).
Flingers delivery service continues to be open starting at 11am daily. We can even deliver beer directly to your house (in growlers and/or cans)!

Flingers drive-thru pickup window continues to be open starting at 11am daily. Our staff is ready to open the window and greet you with smiling eyes...and possibly full-out smiles! Effective 6/11/21, mask-wearing is optional for our employees. So during your drive-thru experience, you may see some employees wearing them, and others who aren't. We respect their choice either way, and ask that you would as well.
The Lightning Lunch is open and active! Every Monday through Friday between 11am - 1pm, either come inside or use our drive-thru pickup window for great combo deals and pizza by the slice.
You voted us Best Pizza and Best Bar for the 4th year in a row, and for the first time ever: Best Overall Restaurant.
Each year, our local newspaper, The Pantagraph, hosts a Readers’ Choice Voting contest to let the community nominate, vote, and decide their top choices for a variety of businesses, products and services. In 2020 you nominated Flingers in a lot of categories (including our chicken wings, salads, and our outdoor dining), but honestly, the three categories we always have our eye on are: Best Pizza, Best Bar, and Best Overall Restaurant. And this year, when the awards were publicly announced on Friday, November 20, 2020, we learned that you helped us win all three!
There are a lot of great local restaurants in Bloomington-Normal (Epiphany Farms, Fort Jesse Café, Mystic Kitchen, and Biaggi’s…just to name a few). We’re humbled to steward the top spot this year as Bloomington-Normal’s Best Restaurant, especially in 2020 when so many restaurants, us included, are facing such unprecedented challenges and difficult decisions. Thank you for your support. We’ll do our best to continuing earning it.
Starting at 4pm... grab a pint, keep the glass
(while supplies last).
At long last, beer events are back at Flingers.
Starting at 4pm on Thursday (June 24), come to our draft beer and keeper glass social as Flingers welcomes one of Chicagoland’s best breweries: Phase Three.
On tap, you’ll find two great Phase Three brews: Sprudel (kölsch-style ale), and Interconnected (their latest hazy IPA).
Plus, we’ll have a limited supply of keeper glasses.
Buy a pint of Phase Three and keep the glass (while supplies last; one glass per person).
Introduce yourself to a new brewery on Thursday evening as Phase Three comes to Flingers.
