Fodor's Review

A ribs-and-blues emporium in the gentrified though still funky Wicker Park neighborhood, Smoke Daddy serves up tangy barbecued ribs—with generously supplied napkins for swabbing stray sauce. Fans pack the bar and the booths for the chow, which includes richly flavored smoked pulled pork and homemade fries, as well as for the no-cover R&B and jazz bands that play nightly. It's a short walk from the Division Street El stop, making this barbecue spot an ideal point from which to explore the neighborhood's hipster scene.
