We've used this restaurant's catering services and were very pleased. We found it an easy and affordable way to feed a crowd. Bull's Pit delivered, the selection of meats and sides made everyone happy and the service was good. Eating in the restaurant offers the chance to try fried pickles with dressing, which I found surprisingly tasty. The only disappointment... More

Ok, this is Kankakee. So, I don't expect fine dining. I expect mom and pop dives. This certainly measured up. First it's by an Amtrak station and you can see and hear the trains go by. The food is ok, Service can be interesting, but the ladies were friendly and helpful. You probably don't want to go here when it's... More

I had been meaning to get to Bull's BBQ for quite some time and when I finally did I was pretty impressed by the menu. I did find the ribs to be a bit dried and cooked enough times to be extremely tough, but the brisket and accompaniments were amazing...My friend had the BBQ sundae which proved to be quite... More

The ribs were ok, charcoals and Luke warm in temp, 1/2 chicken was dried out, baked beans were ok, tasted odd, same with the cole slaw. Service was bad! One waitress for the whole place. It need a good... More

The food was excellent and you got a lot for the price. They have their own take on BBQ, which I thought set them apart. The service was very friendly. The atomosphere was fine. Only downside was we went on a hot day and the A/C was not keeping up. They had the doors open, so it was warm and... More

Very friendly service. We stop in about once a week and the owner is always in the kitchen. Try the Carolina style pulled pork! It's amazing!!

Great atmosphere. Brisket sandwich was great. Several options for sides (all of which were good). Some of the best BBQ I've had outside of the Kansas City area.

Bulls has a variety of bbq from brisket, pulled pork, ribs and tender chicken. If you've never had bbq nachos, a definite must try. Looking for a change of pace, try their Sunday Brunch from made to order omletes and eggs benedict with brisket - yum! If looking for bbq on a busy holiday or sports event - pre-order days... More

the bbq was just ok,but I would go back. They need to put more sauce on the meet. The prices were average, not too bad.
