MomofP3 says I did not want to agree with the other comments on here and really tried to have a good experience but it was a complete waste of time and money. After a day of shopping and fun in the city, I took my 18yo daughter here on Friday night, 3/16/12. I've tried plenty of restaurants that have mixed reviews and they worked out well so after looking at the reviews here I decided to give it a try anyway. First we were carded as we approached the front door, that should have tipped me off to the type of environment I was entering. I let him know that we were just coming for food, I had no idea that it was "Rockabilly" night which is a mood killer for me anyway. I should have cut my losses right then but when we were immediately ushered glasses of water, I thought, hmmm maybe its ok. WRONG! I ordered a pulled pork sandwich, sides of greens, mac & cheese, and garlic mashed potatoes, my daughter had the dinky dunkers, and like a fool I immediately put in an order for the sampler platter and rib tips to take home to the rest of the family. All of the meat was dry, another commenter said the bbq sauce was watery - CORRECT! The greens had am odd tangy flavor, the mash tasted like it was old and out of a box, and the mac and cheese was lackluster and looked prettier than it tasted. We nibbled and brought the rest home and no one else liked any of it either. Chicago has many great places to eat, especially for BBQ. I am not afraid of adventure, it's an hour drive for me to go into the city so when I do, I expect good food for my time and money. I tend to stay away from places where its obvious that the bulk of their revenue is made from the bar - I shouldv'e paid better attention, they stop serving food at 11pm yet are open till 2am. The food tasted old and reheated, this was proven when we unwrapped the foil packets that the sampler was wrapped in and the char marks inside let you know that it had been stored and heated in that foil. There's nothing there to make me go back or to advise anyone else to even give it a try. We also tried the peach cobbler, it had been nuked by Chef "Mic(rowave)", was unevely heated and a crust which might have been good otherwise was soggy and disgusting. As for the service, that cup of water we had when we first sat down was the only one we ever saw, no refills were ever given. I saw the server randomly sit at people tables as she took their orders around us (I hate that.) To top it off, my daughter said from what she saw going on, we got the best treatment. DO NOT waste your time. Money can be earned again when lost, time cannot. There are chains with better ribs. I'm not a dog, I like my meat to fall off the bone so I don't have to wrestle with it. And this was no trip to FLAVORTOWN!
