I have been going here for years! This is a great place for BBQ. For me, the half sandwich meal is perfect; my husband gets the full sandwich meal. The meat is delicious and the sauces wonderful. I’m also a big fan of their slaw!...More

Our whole family loves Smoque- the brisket, ribs and Mac n cheese are the best. My 8 year old wanted to go for his birthday and they gave him a T-shirt. Smoque is the best bbq in Chicago!
