  • Excellent pulled pork and brisket. Among the best in Chicago.
  • Head to this funky spot smoking with hickory and applewood to score all the major cue food groups: spice-rubbed baby backs, tender Texas brisket, and juicy pulled pork.
  • For starters, go for the smoky, greasy rib tips and an insanely rich mac and cheese. Move past salads to a slab of baby backs and the beef brisket sandwich with horseradish.
  • Awesome chilli cheese fries and love the lemonade ;)
  • The pulled pork sandwiches come with two coleslaws; one in a small side dish and one actually already on the sandwich.
  • Try the Beef Brisket Sandwich - Great sandwich and cole slaw...
  • Nothing lives up to the hype.
  • Read their story about being from NC. Then consider that thus really u's better BBQ than any dump in NC could ever turn out.
  • They serve 40oz beers in brown bags. Great warm up before catching a movie across the street.
  • This is the best place for meat by the slab.
  • Incredible mac n cheese.
  • It's conveniently located across the street from a movie theatre, so you can eat before or after seeing a flick. Or you can just use the movie theatre's parking deck.
  • Their coconut cream pie is THE BEST. Save room for dessert. They have other good ones too.
  • Best waiter I had in awhile and food was all great. The only side that was disappointing were the collards.
  • Pulled pork, brisket, and ribs are all awesome. So are the Arnold palmers!
  • The brisket is good! The pulled pork is good too. Ribs have been hit or miss.
  • had the pulled pork and it was some of the best BBQ I've had in chicago. Definitely will be back again.
  • BBQ burger and the mac n cheese are a must!
  • The pulled pork and the pulled chicken are wonderful. Love the smokey flavor of the meats. Mac n cheese is amazing. Sweet potatoe tater tots are fantastic!
  • Great ribs! Don't miss out the Sweet Potato Tater Tots.
