    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

    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.

    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

    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.

    The Pulled Pork sandwich is delectable and "The Q" uses the PERFECT bun. Try it with the South Carolina Mustard sauce; I couldn't get enough. Is this the best Pulled Pork in Chicago? It might be.
