Great atmosphere, large selection of IPAs on tap and great food. The brisket sandwich was huge and hand cut fries awesome... Wings were some the best!!

“Go for the bar, not the BBQ”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

We stopped for dinner - both ordered BBQ, as it was played up on their menu. It was mediocre at best. The brisket on my husband's sandwich was cut in large chunks, and not very good. My "sloppy pig" was mushy and the meats were unrecognizable; the BBQ sauce was hot, but without much other flavor. We won't eat there again.

“Great place to grab a burger in downtown Chicago”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Fantastic atmosphere and for downtown Chicago, it was priced well. The burgers were outstanding. The Parmesan fries were fantastic. I would highly recommend getting the fries.

“A great way to end our Chicago trip”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Very clean and friendly. The food was absolutely great. We just had burgers, but they were smoke flavored like they were right off a backyard grill. (They were also huge.) The fries tasted like homemade as well. We enjoyed sitting by the window and watching people and the horse-drawn carriages (it was a Sunday) go by. People around us were moaning over the bbq. Very large beer selection. It was full midday on a Sunday--usually a good sign.
