Great ribs and chicken along with outstanding sides. Eat in or Oder and pick up makes this a sure winner.
A group of 40 of us went with 16 kids (age 14). The parents asked for separate checks in advance which Carson's said they could not handle.. At the end of the meal, It took 45 minutes for them to hand out the checks and most were incorrect. Close enough, so we didn't make a fuss, we just settled it... More
In town looking for a steak in a more casual environment. This fit perfectly. Cornbread appetizer was unique and very good. Sides were large and could be shared. NY strip was good but slightly overlooked from my med rare request. No room for desert!
Casual, family run restaurant with solid barbeque (ribs, chicken, pork chops) and steaks. Very reaonable priced for the quality of the food, and all dinners come with a side of cole slaw (or for a few dollars more you can upgrade to caesar, house or other salad) and a side (potatoe or vegetable). If you want a Chicago steak/rib experience,... More
If you like baby back ribs then this is the place. We had been here in a few years and yet everything is just as good as we remember. Tender yet chewy off the bone with excellent bbq sauce and always order the au gratin potatoes. Service was excellent as well great cocktails.
I hadn't been to Carson's in about 20 years, and when I walked it it pretty much looked the same as I remembered...and that's not necessary a good thing.

Wanted ribs while in Chicago and the ribs were great!!!!! Whenever I visit Chicago, I also stop at Carson's and am never disappointed!!!!!
Chicago is fortunate to have many excellent restaurants for varied cuisines and budgets. But, this is one of Chicago's best. In one bite, you will understand why these ribs were served on Air Force One. The atmosphere reminds me of an early 20th century men's club. The service is excellent as well.
