BBQ isn't just about the ribs and chicken. These restaurants take traditional BBQ to a whole new level.
Twin Anchors is one of the reasons Lincoln Park is so special. It's good enough for the Blues Brothers and Oprah Winfrey, so it's good enough for me.
When I moved to Chicago from Evanston, this was the one restaurant I just haaaaaaaaaaddddd to try. So I've been trying it for a decade.
There's maybe one thing that I'd voluntarily drive (walk or bus) to Pulaski for, and that's Smoque BBQ.
One of my favorite BBQ joints - it doesn't hurt that Chef Charlie is super cute and he named the joint after one of his lady family members. Finger licking good sauce as well.
RJ and Jerrod Melman are at it again. This time with the hottest BBQ joint (with live band karaoke) in River North.
