We had a carry out order for Easter because of the Coronavirus. This was a way different holiday as my husband and I had to be alone. We ordered for us and our family 4 blocks away. Many compliments and thanks go out to Spiros...the manager. All our food was excellent. What a bright light in such a day. You and your staff will be remembered for our dinners and the care you had taken to provide for us Thank you so much Judy and Fred Zurawski and FamilyMore

Ordered on line and picked up our order during pandemic. It was quick and tasted just like it did in the restaurant. Just what we had a taste for. Saucy and spicy!

Service was great, food was great but they automatically add a credit card surcharge. It will be take off, they say, if you pay cash. Heads up.....

Had the burger. Really no flavor. Probably should have tried the ribs, but they looked like short ribs, not baby backs. Place was clean and the service was very good. Prices reasonable.

I take my elderly parents out every Sunday and try and go to new places to change it up a bit. Both parents use walkers and the generous parking and no step entrance make this a winner before we even ate. People here are friendly,...someone always holds a door open for the parent's walkers. We have been here three times in the past year and have never been disappointed. The walls are decorated with all kinds of Chicago memorabilia which makes the wait for food go fast if you look at the walls. Dad always has the ribs which he devours...the corn side is a nice and the coleslaw is good (we are fussy about coleslaw). All the food I have had has been good. My mom loves pork chops and seldom eats them because they are often tough. Last time we were there she had the pork chop(s). She said the chops were the best and most tender she has had in a long, long, time. Wait staff is always polite; it gets pretty crowded here. Will be taking out of town family for dinner this weekend.More

Great fire smoked ribs! Cute decor. Ribs are very tender and rib tips large enough they can be shared. The pulled pork sandwich is great. The cole slaw is very tasty and the fries are crispy on the outside and tender on the onside. Good...parking.More
