Quick BBQ fix, very casual

There's not too many choices of restaurants in Long Grove IL but this is a decent place. We always order the salad with cilantro-lime dressing, the kids get their ribs and adults chicken or pulled port. They have a great selection of BBQ sauces. It's very casual so it's good for the whole family... read more

We love BBQ. We had high hopes but were a little underwhelmed. The food was not great and not terrible. Most of the food was average. My husband had brisket, chili and beans. He liked the brisket with the regular sauce, but he said it was much better with the spicy sauce. He did not like the beans. He said... More

One of my all time favorites! Absolutely love, love, love their BBQ pulled pork nachos! I drive 35 mintues to get them! Great little BBQ place in the middle of no where!

O.k., but not what it used to be. My husband loved their sliced beef rib which they have discontinued. I loved their chicken. Last time I had it, it was dried out and tasteless. Their smoked corned beef and cabbage in March is very good. Hope it's as good next year.

I ordered a full slab of Spareribs, my wife ordered the Brisket sandwich. We sat outside. When the food arrived they gave me the slab cut into 2 halves. Plenty of meat, well cooked, they had 4 sauces I tried all 4. Since they were spareribs, there was ample meat, that was cooked just right. All that was missing was... More

It's a long way to the western suburbs for the best BBQ in Chicago so, if you're in a pinch, Smoking' T's is pretty good. The sauces are a little runny for my liking but have a reasonably good taste. The pulled pork is their best offering. Burnt ends are good, not great. It's an out of the way location... More

Long Grove doesn't have much in the way of food and entertainment. This place is one of the few decent places to grab lunch or a casual dinner. I've been here multiple times, mostly for lunch and the quality has been consistently good. They have done a nice job with the menu and the decor of the restaurant is warm... More

Smokin T's has great BBQ. Theire meats are very tender and the sauces give you a great variety of styles and tastes.

Smokin' Ts is always a family favorite, whether we are looking for a quick lunch or looking to feed a big crowd. We tried their Easter Brunch and we were not disappointed! For brunch the Cowboy hash was to die for and the chef's take on Eggs Benedict (with pulled pork of course!) was delicious. Even the salads were good.... More
