Smoque BBQ

Smoque BBQ Review

The sweet smoky aroma wafting out of this casual barbecue spot always attracts a crowd, and while the line to order at the counter extends out the door on weekends, it moves quickly. If you can't make up your mind between brisket or shredded pork shoulder (both are tender and cooked for about 14 hours), order the half-and-half—a sandwich with half of each. Or try a slab of ribs. Sides of vinegar-spiked slaw, rich baked beans, and corn bread round out the meal, and kids love the creamy mac and cheese. Smoque is BYOB, so pick up a beer or two before arriving if desired.

  • Chicago and Where Else

    We've never been to Chicago other than changing planes.

    We'd like to go for a few days but that's a lot of flying to spend 3-4 days in one place.

    Any add-ons in the area?

    Thanks. Read more
