Quick BBQ lunch

Really good BBQ ... both pork and beef ... didn't have chicken so no opinion. Good choice of quality sides. Very fast, good pricing. Good parking, easy access.

We Love BBQ Done Right and Ricks does it right. Between us we had the ribs, pulled pork, brisket, baked beans, fries, side salad and coleslaw. It may sound like we work for Rick when I say EVERYTHING was great but honestly we don't and yes, it really was. I think the brisket was my favorite but really hard to... More

Last summer I lunched at Rick's South 7th location and rated the meal of Brisket as a 5 on par with the best Texas Brisket. Today we ate lunch at Rick's Wabash Ave location and I was amazed at the poor quality. The Brisket was actually not Brisket but nothing more than fatty roast beef cooked but not smoked. There...

First try and I was super impressed with the pulled pork sandwich. The spicy sweet sauce is just perfect for the sandwich and the coleslaw is a great way to enhance the sandwich. The restaurant has a great atmosphere with good music. Love this place

Make sure to get the hash brown casserole with any order. It was a new type of catering cuisine for a group normally used to pizza take out. It was great!

Rick's is not only known for it's home cooked barbecued food, but also it's relaxed fun-filled decor. Pulled pork sandwiches, barbecued chicken, fabulous, fall off the bone ribs, headline the menu with an assortment of tasty sides. Other sandwiches are also available. Rick's four flavors of barbecue sauce top off each entree. While your waiting for your food, wander around... More

Excellent food but could be better with an ice cold Blue Moon draft beer. I have never heard of a BBQ place that doesn't sell beer!

We stopped for lunch and had the brisket by itself with some French fried onion rings. The brisket was good, but lacked the crust on the exterior I like. It was fork tender and tasteful beefy flavor but very light smoky taste. The onion rings were delicious and would be worth going again for, but next time I try the... More

I make Rick's Smokehouse a go to place for a quick lunch. The service is prompt and the counter help are always pleasant. The bbq is great. I usually have the pulled pork sandwich and a side.
