MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

One of the area's top barbecue spots is back in action after an unfortunate fire that forced them to close for two years. The kitchen is still up to snuff and has resumed without missing a beat. Perfectly cooked rib tips—a Chicago classic—and precise slices of Texas-style brisket highlight deliciously smoky flavor and meltingly tender meat. Sides too are a particular favorite and may reveal slowly simmered collard greens or deeply addictive mac and (beer) cheese. Portions are ample but that's why they have to-go containers on hand for customers. The room is dark and infused with that enticing aroma of char and smoke. Corrugated metal wraps around the base of the walls, while string lights outdoors invite those passing by to make their way inside.
