  • Get the tips & links combo. Uncle John's has awesome hot links.
  • The rib tips are smoky, extremely juicy, meatier than elsewhere in town and crisp around the edges. The hot links are not for the heat-phobic, with searing bits of red chile and smoky, porky flavor.
  • The best barbeque in the Chicagoland area! The hotlinks, the rib tips, the chicken, and the sauce...OMG, that sauce is crazy delicious and addictive. They also sell BEEF BRISKET that is mouthwatering!
  • Currently, the ribs have us swooning: firm but well-marbled meat and plenty of it, a solid smoke ring throughout the slab, and minimal seasoning with a tiny kick.
