“If you like rib tips................”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2012

This may be the best place to go for rib tips in Chicago (and elsewhere).

It is a fairly small joint..................very casual..............everything served on disposable containers.....but their tips are great and the chicken was equally good.

Unless you are extremely hungry, you might consider ordering the medium size order............it was plenty. The sauce complements the meat as well.

They also offer hot links, pulled pork chicken wings, fish and even some sandwiches (which may not be smoked)

When you enter, the first thing you see is the smoke oven...........unfortunately we did not see it in operation.

well worth the trip!!!!!!!!!!!!

“Wood Fired UP!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2012

Do NOT miss this little gem hidden away from the inner city!! Some of the best BBQ I have ever tasted and they even let me bring my own beer!! Everything was amazing, ribs, tips, chicken, fries and bread. This is a must try for the culinary adventurer. All wood fire ovens, adding to the delicious flavours. Amazing BBQ sauce too, check it out!

“most authentic bbq around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2011

New to Chicago i often relied on reviews to figure out which places to take my girlfriend when she would visit. Some magazine had this place ranked number 1... and am i ever glad i took their word for it. First off, this place is a true joint akin to your favorite burger spot. When i was there, it seemed like there was a never ending flow of cops walking in and out of the place. Now to the BBQ... These guys make BBQ the way it is supposed to be made. Smoking the meat for hours and NOT boiling it first. Most of the big BBQ places boil the meat first to get that "fall off the bone" tenderness. But in the process, you lose a lot of flavor. This is the real deal.
