    Amazing food. The Mac and cheese and hush puppies were divine. And cocktails - had one that felt strong enough as three but was a great compliment to meal

    The Kobe Brisket sandwich is tender and delicious. Service is great but the cornbread is a little grittier and drier than I am accustomed to.

    Amazing food, great service, worth every penny!

    The watermelon salad was a refreshing and delicious complement to all the BBQ meat.

    Pickles and BBq chips are irresistible, but don't overdo it! Portions are huge, so it's very easy to over order. Try the BBq or Benedict flight for brunch. Crab cakes have huge chunks of crab meat.

    BBQ is the best. The benedict tasting is also pretty good. Portions are enormous!

    Hugo Bernardo · June 11

    Everything here is good! Try the coleslaw for sure

    Hey Chicago Q, you should join Freebie! It’s pretty rad and the benefits are great for both you and me. Check it out!

    Pickles are great

    The food was just ok. The ribs were not meaty. However, the kettle chips are fantastic

    Check out this barbecue joint for Eastern N.C.-style barbecue. Want to act like a true Carolinian? Ask for some slaw with your pork sandwich, but not on the side. Read more

    Terrible service, TERRIBLE

    The food here was only so so. Drinks were watered down and that says a lot from someone who isn't a drinker. The cajun chips are delish and refilled without asking. Love the atomosphere though.

    If you crave for spare ribs, this should be your favourite address. Half rack is very enough, but go for a full rack if you are really hungry.

    Love this place. If you like pork, this place is great. One of the best BBQ options in Chicago.

    EVERYTHING is amazing. My favorites are the pulled pork & pulled chicken sandwiches & the BBQ Cobb Salad is amazing!!

    Carolyn S · November 19, 2014
  • Christine H.

    Mix the traditional and spicy BBQ sauces. Yum!

    Christine Hong · November 18, 2014
  • Jack H.

    The BBQ is all great. The portions are huge. An appetizer and a q2 platter is usually enough for 4 in my experience.

    I've come here twice and have always left underwhelmed. The staff is friendly, great vibe, location and mimosas. The food does leave me a bit underwhelmed, I always think there should be more flavor

    Yummy BBQ chips when you sit down.

    Score brunch with a delicious down-home BBQ twist at this Downtown destination. Try the sweet potato pancakes smothered in pecan butter and bourbon maple syrup, or the Kobe brisket eggs Benedict (!!). Read more

    Chargrilled oysters are a great app. 3 meat combo best for sharing

    Ryan · September 12, 2014
  • Casey J.

    Great food! Get a variety of 4 BBQ sauces with each order.

    Casey J · September 4, 2014

    Eggs Benedict brunch is very good. Great selection of sauces. Corn fritters

    George Miller · August 31, 2014

    Cornbread is amazing

    Ainsley Faux · August 24, 2014
  • Aaron D.

    Baby back ribs. Yum.

    Aaron Davis · August 17, 2014
  • Pocket S.

    BBQ chips and sweet pickles to start, a baby greens salad to be healthy, and a full slab ribs to fulfill your stomach. The menu is meat-heavy in big portions, so definitely share, even the q2.

    Pocket Sun · August 10, 2014
  • Redeye Chicago

    Chef Lee Ann Whippen earned plenty of accolades as a pitmaster on the barbecue competition circuit. Now, she serves the same tender smoked meats at this white-washed plantation-style dining room. Read more

    Smoked chicken is definitely best of the meats. Bottomless mimosas on Sundays.

    The Kobe Chopped Brisket is out of this world.

    Adam Marsch · May 3, 2014

    Absolutely loved it! Everything from the pickles n' chips to the drinks to the q! ^_^

    This is not a BBQ restaurant. It is a BBQ themed restaurant.

    Vaughn Allen · March 22, 2014

    Great whiskey selection.

    One of the best bourbon lists in Chicago. Awesome mint juleps. Great food. Fantastic service.

    Todd Carpenter · September 21, 2013
  • Stevie C.

    They have bottomless mimosas here. I WILL be back for brunch. Oh, and the brisket sandwich is amazing but the baby back ribs are life changing.

    Kobe beef brisket is soo good. Must try the alligator, it is so tender.

    The cornbread with the peppers was great. Other than that this place was all flash and no substance.
