Bait and Switch

So I get an e-mail coupon that Hecky’s sent me for ribs for $10. I drive from Lincolnwood to buy them and when I present the coupon, I am told that they are out of ribs but you have the chicken wings that are also on the coupon. How does a rib place run out of ribs and why are they still open if they have no ribs. I get home and place an order for three slabs of ribs on the phone. They tell me they will be ready in 15 minutes. So they are pulling a bait and switch. They just lost a 25 year customer! I will never go there again!

Hecky's - It's the sauce!

Hecky’s is the best BBQ in the North/Northwest suburbs of Chicago. I often make the drive at lunch from Northbrook to get the half chicken, the ribs, or the rib tips. The meat is smoked, cooked to perfection, and slathered in that great Kansas City style sauce. I think Hecky’s is still a carry-out only operation, but there are plenty of nearby parks (with water fountains for hand-washing).

Mediocre barbecue, but better than local competition

We often get Hecky’s takeout when we’re visiting family in Evanston. It’s pretty decent barbecue — nothing worth writing home about, though, since we live in the South where barbecue is a serious art form.

The ribs are good. The red beans and rice are made well, although only available as a side they could realistically be a whole meal. All the food is fairly average — but since we’re in Chicago, there isn’t much barbecue to compare it to. You won’t be amazed, but you aren’t likely to be completely disappointed.

Baby Back (Full Slab)

Cooked nicely and well-coated in sauce.

Sweet Potato Pie (Slice)

A bit cloying and the crust was soggy.

Red Beans n Rice (1/2 pint)

Cooked perfectly and robust flavor without being overly spicy. Good alternative for vegetarians, or side dish for anybody.
