We went for dinner on a Saturday night and even though the line was out the door, we probably didn't wait longer than 30 min for a table. Unfortunately since it was near closing time, they ran out of baby back ribs, but the slab of St. Louis ribs I got were amazing. The sauce was also fantastic and spicy,... More

Our first time there but we will be back! We had pulled pork and sliced brisket which were both tender and flavorful! We ordered different sides to try and all were very good.....but the Cole Slaw was excellent! Nothing fancy about the place, just great Food which is what we want!

Ate here on 5/23/17 with my adult son, his wife and three grandkids, ages 12,10 and 8. The Sliced Brisket platter was awesome. Meat was tender, juicy and flavorful. For sides I had coleslaw, beans and mac and cheese. The price was most reasonable given the quality of the food. We came on a Tuesday after 7:00 PM, so there... More

Smoque is a rare BBQ joint that is excellent across multiple styles. Super meaty Saint Louis ribs, outstanding brisket, great pulled pork. Sides are also great. If they offer, a brisket stew or similar, get it and then eat it with the fries!

Nothing fancy, but great barbecue! They would accommodate a group, but it can get busy. Good for a family. good for a casual dinner. it would accomodate a group or a family.

They share a space with other vendors in a big area located downtown. I had a Turkey sandwich which the meat was excellent, did not care much for the sauce or bread so my sandwich was kind of dry, side of slaw okay. I'm not a big meat eater so the experience was okay.

Hands down the most consistent and best smoked brisket in Chicago. Quite frankly everything they serve (chicken, ribs, hot links, and more) is fantastic! After a savory meal, get a peach cobbler - it's awesome! Having a problem deciding what to order? Don't worry! They have tasting portions available too! That is the way I go pretty often while getting... More

Nothing on this menu is bad. This is an "out of the way, but worth the trip" for any visitor or resident of Chicago. Their brisket melts in your mouth, the ribs are juicy, the roasted chicken is perfect over a salad and the sides are to die for. The mac and cheese is epic, the fries are perect and... More
