I had heard a lot of good things about this restaurant, so I tried it. The bbq was average and it doesn't open until 4pm. I felt there are better options in the city. If you are in the neighborhood give it a try and you be the judge.

What a great place for a first meal in Chicago. The food was delicious, the music was fun and the waitstaff were quick and friendly.

Great Memphis style BBQ. Try the platter if you can't make you mind on Chicken, Beef Brisket, ribs ribtip, hot links. The great thing is you get you sauces as sides. The greens and othr sides dishes are excellent.
The beauty of getting the sauces on the side is that you see the smole rings in the meats.
The a great choice in entertainment for Bluegrass to Jazz

You go there more the food. Dry rub and smoke does it get and better!

Geat restaurant/bar in a very unexpected place. Featured on the food network, honky tonk is a great place for some southern food. But go on a weekday if you don't want to wait cause the line is usually out the door on weekends. If you are not adverse to waiting a bit i recommend the weekends as there is live music. The food here is fantastic and not something you can find all over chicago. And if you live in Pilsen like me its down the street and a nice variation from the rest of the restaurant in the nieghborhood (home of the best mexican food).

Don't waste your time and drive into South Chicago for this BBQ joint. Ribs were chewy. Candied yams, that would be plural, I got one half of a yam (one piece) with some sweet sauce, not like my candied yams. Basic roll with the meal. Dessert, oh we don't carry what's on our menu in pies. Had some bourbon glazed pound cake - just OK. My son had pulled pork, corn muffin, mashed potatoes, and banana pudding for dessert and said all was good.
