Smoque BBQ is well worth a ride out of Chicago's Loop. Their chicken and brisket, I had both, are a taste sensation that is next to heavenly. Here the smoke makes your taste buds happy. Love their fries, too. Often fries taste like an afterthought....More

I’ve been at a number of BBQ places across the US and this one rates in my top 5. The ribs were moist, beef brisket almost melted in your mouth, sauces were excellent. All around great food.

Love the Beef brisket! The smell of the brisket is mouth watering, and once it goes to your mouth it’s full of flavor! The chicken and baby back ribs needs enhancement. That’s the reason why I only gave 4.

How do I start... Yum! The pulled pork is moist and perfect for a sandwich or just a plain old fork. The brisket is worth looking for parking (which was not too bad). The sauces for both are consistently delicious and served separate so you...More

In addition to the meat being tender, but the sauce is awesome! To me, you must have a good bbq sauce. During summer days, there will be a long wait.
