Very Average

Unfortunately, due to all of the Mississippi influence we have in Chicago, we know great bar-b-q. Unfortunately, this isn't it. It is very average, and not inexpensive.

Have only tried the corned beef snadwiches. Fantastic. Not the kind you get at a deli or most resturants. The meat was in chunks, freshly cooked, melted in your mouth. Best I have ever had.

I ordered 1 1/2 pounds of corned beef costing $17. I got a plastic container of mushy beef in tiny pieces. You couldn't even make a sandwich and keep it on the bread . When I told the young girl of my disappointment she told me she would refund my money but she really didn't have to! That put the... More

After reading the positive reviews, we decided to try the Irish Pig. We were disappointed with our selections. The corn beef was in chucks not sliced and the ribs were very meaty but tasted like they had been boiled not smoked. The price was fair. I don't know if we will return.

So happy to have a BBQ place in New Lenox! Discovered this little gem a few months ago. Delicious pulled pork. Ribs fell off the bone. Hand cut fresh French fries with several flavor options...Cajun, garlic, truffle to name a few. We will definitely visit often!

Great BBQ. Several kinds of meat and lots of selection. Get "The Mess" - decadent pile of fries smothered in cheese, pulled pork, BBQ Sauce, green onions, etc. Try with sweet potato fries for an even better southern twist on loaded nachos!

Wonderful tasty pulled pork. Loaded fries is soooo good. Brisket is good also. Just talk with Kathy there with what you like, she will help you out. If you are really hungry - try the Fireman Bob Burger!

Very good beef and pork, very good sauce. Spiced fries are also very good. Possibly the best burger in the area, very good size and flavor. Try the home made soups. Giving this place 4 stars for location- no place to sit down inside - but great for carry out.

Love this place. Very convenient to pick up a hearty dinner that's not your typical fast food fare. I've never had a bad meal and the owners go beyond expectations to make sure everything is right. To those who are concerned about limited dining in, I understand that they are expanding to accommodate in-house diners. There are lots of entree... More
