On a sunday night the wait in a restaurant isn't too sexy. And yet this lost treasure in chinatown does have its share of popularity. Yet the wait is not much for the quality of food. The service is excellent and the many waiters will...More

Chinatown may be one of Chicago’s smallest
neighborhoods geographically, but it's big on
character, colors, sights, sounds, and flavors. In
this South Side neighborhood, you’ll find authentic
Chinese restaurants dotting the length of Wentworth
Avenue. After a meal of dim sum, noodles, duck or
other tantalizing food specialties, satiate your
visual appetite with dozens of public art sculptures

No. They do not have their liquor license yet. Also, being a BBQ, the tables have the grill in the middle of the tables. Seating is for eating.
