Been here dozens of times. Great pulled chicken, turkey salad, homemade chips, and Mac n cheese. Love the spicy bbq sauce. Great for carry out too

We've been eating here since they opened and have never had a bad experience. I'm partial to their Kickin Chicken. It is so moist and with the white BBQ sauce, mouth-watering! Their mac and cheese is the best I've ever had! My husband and I have learned to get an extra order of the homemade chips for the ride home!... More

We love BBQ. We had high hopes but were a little underwhelmed. The food was not great and not terrible. Most of the food was average. My husband had brisket, chili and beans. He liked the brisket with the regular sauce, but he said it was much better with the spicy sauce. He did not like the beans. He said... More

One of my all time favorites! Absolutely love, love, love their BBQ pulled pork nachos! I drive 35 mintues to get them! Great little BBQ place in the middle of no where!

O.k., but not what it used to be. My husband loved their sliced beef rib which they have discontinued. I loved their chicken. Last time I had it, it was dried out and tasteless. Their smoked corned beef and cabbage in March is very good. Hope it's as good next year.

There's not too many choices of restaurants in Long Grove IL but this is a decent place. We always order the salad with cilantro-lime dressing, the kids get their ribs and adults chicken or pulled port. They have a great selection of BBQ sauces. It's very casual so it's good for the whole family. You order, pay and bring it... More

I ordered a full slab of Spareribs, my wife ordered the Brisket sandwich. We sat outside. When the food arrived they gave me the slab cut into 2 halves. Plenty of meat, well cooked, they had 4 sauces I tried all 4. Since they were spareribs, there was ample meat, that was cooked just right. All that was missing was... More

It's a long way to the western suburbs for the best BBQ in Chicago so, if you're in a pinch, Smoking' T's is pretty good. The sauces are a little runny for my liking but have a reasonably good taste. The pulled pork is their best offering. Burnt ends are good, not great. It's an out of the way location... More
