Checked this place out during a work visit. Service was good, place was clean. Unfortunately, the food was absolutely lacking any flavor. I ordered the pulled pork and mac and cheese. Both had zero spices added to it. And there's no way it was smoked because there wasn't any smoke flavor. The mac and cheese had the texture it gets when it sits out for a while. My coworker ordered the brisket and twice baked casserole. Same thing - no flavor. I asked for a dessert menu afterwards, full review
Road tripping from the burbs of Chicago down to Southern Illinois and stopped to grab some bbq for lunch. Place was packed for lunch so I was anticipating one hell of a bbq joint....but came up short for me. Here is why: Brisket Queso- nothing special, melted cheese with smoky brisket sounds amazing right? Well when I took my first bite it was a shoulder shrug with an eh, not bad. Combo Platter (choose 3)- went with the pulled pork, chicken bone in, and brisket. All were full review

One of the most famous restaurants in the city, so you will have to wait for a table. I like the Combo platters since you can get 2-3 types of meats. But some days you just want some small they have an option with only one type of meat. They have a nice variety of sauces and drinks. The staff is very friendly and helpful.
