I grew up on the Texan, on its award winning ribs and BBQ sauce, but now that I'm older and have tried other many other BBQ joints, I'm not as satisfied as I once was. The food is good, the ribs fall right off the bone, but nothing special that makes me excited. The place needs a giant makeover, including... More

You can smell their delicious ribs cooking all over the neighborhood. I don't know how this place isn't constantly packed to the brim. We have come here at least once a month for the last 4 months, and there is never a wait. You order at the counter, and they bring your food to the table. Its a little confusing... More

Having grown up in the South, I have enjoyed some truly good barbeque and the Texan really hits the spot! I can truly say we've never had a bad meal there and the food is plentiful and very tasty. Not only is their pork good, but their steak special is just that--special and when it's featured it's an excellent value.... More

My husband and I have tried many BBQ places around the Chicago area, and the Texan is one of our favorites. The beef brisket is so tender and flavorful... Yummy! We have never had a bad meal here, our friends order their catering for family parties and rave about food. I have had Beef Brisket, Chili, Chicken, and Steak...and have... More

This place is a staple for the NW burbs! It's absolutely authentic Texas BBQ which means it's smoked oh so well. Try the 2 or 3 meat special. It's grabd! Whatever you get, you must have a side of fried okra and cornbread. Not for the LDL shy, but for a splurge, or an everyday option, this is your place.... More

My husband and I went for dinner and I was amazed! I was expecting it to be a sit down restaurant and it wasn't. When you walk in you place your order and have a seat. Friendly service! I had ribs and garlic shrimp. Told my husband he could have some an to be honest I didn't share!!! It was... More
