“Smokin'!”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Great brisket! I've visited before and was worried that when they expanded they would lose the intimate (old bar) feeling. But they kept it, and added some great space. Get the brisket and the iron skillet cookie - they are outstanding. We tried all the meats and the were all very good. I thought baby back ribs had a little too much sauce on them, which hid the flavor of the meat. But that's a preference, not a complaint. Go on a Tuesday and they have $5 flights of beer, with a great selection of local and national microbrews.

“Nachos”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Your visit should start and end with the pulled-meat nachos. Go for the burnt ends and pulled pork as toppings. Order the coleslaw on the side and put it on top. The best. Beer selection is ok, prices slightly high. Go for the nachos.

“yummy BBQ”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Smoke Daddy is a go-to for excellent BBQ. I love the pulled chicken sandwich and mac and cheese. Anytime I'm in Wicker Park and feeling hungry, this is my place. They expanded the restaurant in the last year or so and the seating is much more ample now. It also feels less like a dive... But go for the food not the ambiance.

“Great BBQ”
Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant has both indoor and outdoor seating and on occasion live music.
The seating in both booths and on floor seating is comfortable and there is generally an enjoyable atmosphere here.
The menu has a good choice of classic BBQ dishes at fairly reasonable prices.
Our group really enjoyed the food. Everything was perfectly cooked and freshly prepared.
Service was attentive and efficient.

“...Pulled Pork Sandwich!”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

Great food in a whole NEIGHORHOOD of great restaurants along Division Street. Met friends for dinner - ate outside - (we could have done without the kerosene heaters (smelly) that night - but the food was delicious! Great selection of beers - but I think that is pretty standard for Chicago. Would go back...
