simple tasty food

Their BBQ beef sandwiches are the best in the Chicagoland area. The pork sandwich is good too. Sandwiches come with fries and cole slaw. Corn on the cob is also available. Ribs, chicken, fish on the menu too. Get your food at the counter and find a table.

Great casual barbeque for unadventurous

I have eaten here often. I get the bar-b-que pork sandwich plate which comes with fries and coleslaw. The fries are average – no problem, but not particualrly memorable. The coleslaw is more vinegary than creamy which goes well to balance the more sweet than tart bar-b-que sauce.

The place is NOT worth going far out of your way, but is and has been for many decades, a very reliable spot for a quick meal. It serves alcohol, but is very family friendly.

They have comfortable booths for four and tables that would accomodate the little league team.

The meat is tender and tasty, but would not win a price in a bar-b-que contest.
