“A must do in Chicago”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Went there on a Friday night with a friend. Had the nachos with the chicken and pork on them. They were sooo good and you get a lot for an appetizer. Later got a platter with the brisket and pork. It was amazing. They have a few choices of sauces at the table to smother your meat with. Well worth heading over to that part of the city. The Key Lime pie was also amazing. They had a great Blues Band playing that night also. Parking can be a problem in that area, so give yourself enough time.

“Chicago BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

What's not to like? We had pulled pork, brisket, nachos, pulled chicken salad, sides of Mac and cheese, corn bread, and homemade BBQ chips. Everything was awesome, plus the weather was great so we sat outside. Don't miss this!!

“Best Ribs in Chicago”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

This place was packed. Had a 15 minute wait but it is worth the wait. We dined on the sidewalk with GREAT service. Ribs and the sauce made the dinner very special. Not pricy either. I would like to go back next time I am in Chicago. They had a large selection of fine drinks and beer. Do not miss this one.

“Authentic BBQ in an authentically funky setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

Living in New England, good BBQ is hard to come by. So when a native Chicagoan took us to Smoke Daddy's this week, we were mighty happy eaters. Love the funky decor and the big booths on the inside - outside dining looked good, too - and the choice of beers available along with full bar service.
Got the ribs sampler with tips, St. Louis style and baby backs. 2 mix-n-match sauces at the table let you make your own tasty versions of added sauce. Coleslaw was tangy and fresh, corn bread was delicious. Servings are generous and the service was fast and friendly.
I'd go back in a second if it didn't involve a plane trip to get there. So, for now, the sense memory will suffice and give yet another reason to return to Sweet Home Chicago!
