To Die For Ribs – I love the ribs here. Their salads are excellent. Their BBQ sauce is quite excellent. They evoke the very best ribs I've had throughout the years. If I were to choose one ribs place to recommend, this would be it.
Best BBQ in IL! – I never would imagined I would find a smoked BBQ restaurant I love more than Woody's on Lincoln Ave., but Hecky's comes pretty darn close. Actually they are very different, but oooohhh soooo gooood!
Move Over Garbage – I've been living in Evanston for almost two years and I couldn't wait to get a taste of Hecky's World Famous BBQ and sauce. But after recently experiencing eating at this place, I have to say move over garbage and make room for Hecky's food to join you. I ordered the pricey Chicago style rib tips and it was a waste of money. They make better BBQ in a grocery store. There was no smoked or grilled taste what so ever. i wasted $30 in this joint, only to come away very disappointed. The hotlinks tasted dry and terrible, the chicken wings tough, and the rib tips fatty. My advice is avoid this place and try Buffalo Joe's instead. If you like eating overpriced garbage, then you'll love Hecky's.
Not that good – Let me start by saying I wanted it to be good, but I've had better BBQ at McDonalds. If this is close to Texas BBQ - I now have no reason to ever step foot in the Lone State, 'cause I thought this could be their one redeeming quality. Sorry - but it's just not good.
Finger lickin' good barbecue and friendly folk make this famous rib joint a must-stop pit stop. – In Short
It's all about the 'cue at this ketchup- and mustard-colored, matchbox-sized corner carryout joint. Some diners go medieval with the slathered turkey drumstick; those who prefer a leaner cut opt for the fall-off-the-bone baby backs or perfectly juicy barbecued chicken. Other menu favorites include fried shrimp served with a side of barbecue sauce, plus corn bread, seasoned fries, crunchy slaw, and sweet potato pie and tapioca-like peach cobbler for dessert.
Down home barbecue – After moving here from Texas, I was missing all the good barbecue joints, but Hecky's definitely comes close in terms of quality food. The sauce is great, but you better like a lot of it because they pour it on! The portions are large and filling and although at first glance the prices look high, it is well worth the money. The ribs are so moist, they fall off the bones! The sides are delicious as well, especially the baked beans.
It IS the sauce – honestly, the meat here is nothing special, but the sauce rules! Don't plan on eating here, there is no place to sit and your food comes in a bag--this is a strictly take-out joint. I don't agree that this is the best BBQ ever, but it is certainly the best in the Chicago area.
roro – Simply great barbecue. Servers arer young and earnest. Sauce is phenomenal.
BBQ at its best – Great place to get a pull pork sandwich. Two disvantages are hard to park and no place to sit down eat. Beside that is the best place to get BBQ.
THE BEST IN THE WORLD – I have eaten BBQ ribs all across the world, including some of what are considered the best... Carsons, Porkys, and a little place in st lucia, But In a city renowned for its bbq, HECKYS, my childhood favorite, Reigns supreme... HANDS DOWN THE TASTIEST
