“Good ribs and great family restaurant”
Reviewed 1 September 2013 via mobile

The restaurant serves good ribs and chicken wings. Real fresh and family oriented. Service is great and place is cleaned. Portions are huge and get ready for a great feast. Price is reasonable and kids meal are available. Kids Mac & cheese n chicken tenders were good as well. Servers are friendly and if you have the South Bay booklet, there are coupons in there as well for free onion rings n wings appetizer. Good run for your money!

“The food and service are great every time”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

My family and I have been going to this place for years.

Onion Rings Brick Style, good with BBQ sauce or Ranch Dressing
Baby Back Ribs Good Stuff, Sauce is good, not overpowering
Chicago Wings Get them dry with sauce on the side.
Corn Bread Decent, sometimes the dinner rolls are better
Mac & Cheese The kids will love this stuff
Chicken Strips Some of the best around, not your typical chicken strip
Caesar Side Salad Can be dry at times, ask for extra dressing
Service Very nice people, they always have a smile

*hint If you get there before 5pm, lunch specials are at a good price

“Still Good Ribs”
Reviewed 9 July 2013

Have been frequenting Chicago for Ribs for many years and have missed it since moving out of the area. Still tasty and tender ribs although they, along with the fries, were overdone this time. The cole slaw was okay but the corn bread was not that good. The place is clean and efficient, and definitely NOT run by high school kids; only pleasant adults in sight. I look forward to my next visit to "Chicago". Oh, and they have a good before-6 p.m. special.

“Family ambiance”
Reviewed 4 September 2012

Typical strip mall restaurant. Out dated decor, but clean. The place seemed to have been ran by kids in high school, cafeteria service quality, not an authentique BBQ place, the meat did not seem smoked but cooked or boiled and slathered in BBQ sauce, the sides were ok.

“Finger Licking Good!!!”
Reviewed 5 January 2012

Greatest place to come and have a seat in most of the time quiet location. Service is wonderful, everyone is really down to earth. Great place to come watch some sports games, and just eat some great food. I recommend getting some coupons from South Bay Monthly, or other local papers, cause can usually score free appetizer, or great deal. But recommend going before 6 to get their special combos for 10.99!!!! They give pretty generous plate of food, usually enough for your dinner and lunch next day! Highly recommend it, great spot and the servers are all awesome!!!!
