This restaurant was recommended by a friend. I did enjoy the pulled pork, but the baked beans didn't have any flavor and I was looking for creamy cole slaw but instead got vinegary slaw with not much flavor. The service was very good. This place...More

We've been looking for BBQ in the northern suburbs, because traffic into the city is usually not so good at dinner time. Real Urban BBQ in Highland Park is pretty good. TK's was our next adventure, we read some good review so we were hopeful,...More

We've been to TK's twice now, since moving to Northbrook. Carry-out both times. Here's our take: What TK's is not: this place is not your typical Chicago rib place. It's not Carson's, Robinson's or The Gale St. Inn - or any number of other like...More

We visited TK's last week and were pleasantly surprised. Fantastic ribs. We had the St. Louis which I always found meatier and easier to eat than the curved baby backs, but they have both. the beanless chili was very good, we would definitely return frequently.
