We went here after reading TA reviews on a warm and wet Friday evening. Chose an outside table under the awning and had a very helpful waitress. There was a huge choice of beers - bottled and draft. We shared a full slab of ribs with fries and onion rings. Not usually big fans of ribs but these were delicious.... More

Stop here for the best ribs you've had in ages if you are anywhere near old town Chicago for great food in a supper club style environment. Stepping into this place makes you wish you lived in the neighborhood and could be a regular patron. We were lucky enough to arrive early and snag a booth opposite the busy bar.... More

We accidentally walked into this restaurant in Old Town, and were delighted to enjoy the best ribs ever. Expect a wait

If you go here you have to eat ribs!! The meat is tender and the taste is delicious.. You can choose different sauce to accompany your ribs and different sides.. You have to stop here if you go to Chicago!!

This is a place I visit every time I near Chicago. It is friendly with a great wait staff and the best ribs you will ever find. It is a don't miss place in Chicago. They now have outside seating which is where we sat, but I think you lose something by not being in the dining room. Stay inside.... More

This was a return visit for three out of our party of five and we now have two more converts! Not fancy just very darn good food. A great "neighborhood " place with a welcoming staff - good bar and good service. The ribs are the go to thing in the menu and they don't disappoint. They have added outside... More

Excellent Rib place. Meat falls off the bone and has a crispy texture. Small menu. Extensive craft beer list. Very casual and 'old school'. No reservations. Great service.

I'm a HUGE fan of ribs and these were certainly some of the best I've had. Friendly staff, brilliant ribs and very reasonably priced. Loved this place!

We came here before setting off to The Second City comedy show, because it was in walking distance. It looks pretty old and has a bar in the front section and dining room in the back. We sat at the bar and ordered beers and pulled pork sandwiches. Really good! We got there around 6pm, and timed it just right... More

Twin anchors was in my To-do list when I planned my trip to Chicago. I love well-made ribs and thris lived up to my expectations. Soft, tender and moist. The side salad is good and they offer more than just the ribs. I will definitely get back there in my next time in Chicago!
