Visited Big Ed's for the first time based on reviews. This place is awesome. The ribs are the best I've ever had, but nothing compares to the homemade hot links! They are next to none. I can't wait until they open their location in Libertyville.

Big Ed's was a very welcome addition to the Waukegan downtown. This meant I could get very good barbeque without driving 10+ miles. The space in the downtown restaurant is small, but inviting. In summer they open it up onto the garden next to the restaurant and can serve many more this way. In the winter get there early to get a seat. The food is great, the staff very friendly, and the atmosphere comfortable.

Title sez it all.
Great food, service and staff. I'm visiting again next time I'm in Waukegan.
Consider Ed's if also visiting the Genessee Theater.
