BBQ is their best dish by far. Skip their fish and chips. Served in an "place order yourself and it will be delivered" format.......Sandwich sized portions come on freshly made buns and will fill almost any appetitive level. Everything except the dinners is served a la carte. BBQ pork and beef were absolutely the best closely followed by the chopped... More

If anyone of you remember the Branding Iron in Oak Lawn, IL....these ribs run a really close second. Cooked perfectly, but not falling off the bone. Their BarBQ sauce is awesome! The Tilapia is also great...cooked perfectly. Had the chopped salad, close to Portillo's but with honey mustard dressing. A little bit loud as the venue is very open. You... More

I have been in Lombard for a week at a convention staying at the Westin. I tried this place on a whim after seeing it on Trip Advisor.

Very nice selection of food. Prices are comparable to other restaurants of this type. Gets crowded and noisy at times, but tht's to be expected for a family type eatery.

I love barbeque especially ribs. I have found the Patio restaurants in both Lombarrd and Willowbrook to have the best tasting and melt off the bones ribs. The sauce is not too spicy and not too tomatoey.

We usually stop here when we're in the area. Quick and good for the kids. There's a variety of home cooking, i.e. ribs, beef, BBQ chicken, but also a variety of salads for those who prefer greens.

Just went through the drive-up for a quick dinner. What a nice surprise, when I opened up my sandwich got a nice pickle spear with it and the most delicious brisket sandwich that I've ever had in the Chicago area! Yummy...great sauce and a nice amount of brisket, well worth the price.

As a first time visitor to The Patio, I was pleasantly surprised. Great atmosphere and a menu that's more than ribs. I has the pulled pork sandwich, and it was more than enough food. We will be back.
