Saw an article a while back in Bon Appetit magazine saying this place had the best ribs in America. Yeah, right, I thought. Well, if they aren't the best ribs in America, I don't know what is, and I've eaten barbecue from coast to coast. Perfectly tender without being turned to mush; smoky, but not so smoky that the flavors... More

If you are close, make some time to stop here. You won't regret it. There is usually a wait, so expect that. Ribs are amazing, as was the pimento cheese appetizer.

This restaurant which is located in the barbecue capital of Illinois, is an award winner for ribs. As in best in the USA. I must this one is a little better than the sister restaurant by I57. Great sides, tasty smoked meats like brisket, pulled pork, and ribs. Did I say ribs? Great ribs. Fantastic atmosphere, with a beautiful bar.... More

Most out-of-towners will tell you that this is one of the great BBQ places in the USA. To be sure, it is good, but it's not even the best BBQ in Murphysboro. Locals will tell you to go to Pat's. 17th Street is gliding on its reputation.

They have good BBQ, the baked beans are especially tasty. The pricing is a little high but if you aren't going to the trouble to make your own, this is a good option.

We were in the area - had hiked the Little Grand Canyon which is about 8 or so miles away in Pomona. We each had the BBQ. I like mine quite well. My friend thought it could have a bit more sauce. I had the macaroni and cheese side, and I though it was great. Service was a bit overwhelmed,... More

Service was slow at best this past Saturday nite. First time there, not overly impressed with food either, bar-b-que beef "lots of bull" sandwich was tasty, baked sweet potato did not come with butter, took forever to get 1st beer and even longer for 2nd.

So this place is paradise. Great smoked meat. I have tried everything and nothing disappoints. However, my favorite is The brisket the sauerkraut The local beer French fries and a brownie for dessert I will drive far and wide to come here. The kids serving you are always happy and fun.
