Great venue. I had the nachos with beef brisket. The brisket was basically dumped on the top of the nachos. There were pieces of pure fat on the nachos. Also, the cilantro included the stem and not just the leaves. Service was slow to start and then improved once the server came over.

Very good brisket and trucker snacks! My only complaint was the lemonade tasted off. Super server and manager was great also. Would recommend for a quick bite before leaving O'Hare.

This is my 2nd visit to Bub City. I discovered the place couple of weeks ago while on a conference, and fell in love with the BBQ Bacon Burger and the seasoned fries; the best in a very long time! Then, I brought my family with me this time so we can all enjoy this experience. Great beer selection, good atmosphere and outside seating, and attentive staff.

Noise level was high due to it being a free concert night. There are too much music competing at the same time at Rosemont.

The staff was very accommodating considering there was 13 of us and 5 children. The appetizers were large and very good. The staff was very attentive and gave us extra space when needed. The noise level was fine until the band started and unfortunately with the kids most had to leave. The food was outstanding. We would do it again but would prefer to be farther from the stage. Atmosphere was comfortable.

My husband and I enjoyed having brunch on the outside patio with Bloody Mary's and a hearty country breakfast -- everything was delicious. Our experience was made even better because of our server, Danny (not sure of the spelling as this was a female). She was pleasant, attentive and very accommodating. Great time!

For BBQ? It just isnt anything past "OK". Menu was sooo limited for food. Whiskey and beer was numerous.
I wouldnt go back. My opinion is you can get better BBQ at Famous Daves or 4 or 5 different restaurants.
Our bill for 2 people with 2 beers and 2 "Moscow Mules"(the mules didnt taste like any mule ive had before, yuck) was $90.00. Add in Rosemont parking garage fee of $15.00. It is not worth it!

It's a casual Bbq place with good food. Atmosphere is fun with music at times. Good drinks and small
menu focusing on smoked meats. They have good sides and desserts too. Outside dinning.

My husband enjoyed his meal which was the daily special (smoked bone in short rib). I tasted and wished I had ordered the same thing. I ordered one of the smokies sampler but the pork shoulder and crispy bbq chicken were both over cooked and very dry. I really enjoyed the sides. Although my meal wasn’t the best I will be back to try something else.

Great stop before going to the Rosemont Theatre. Food is good, lively atmosphere and walking distance to the theatre. Don’t forget to get your parking ticket authenticated. That makes parking free!!!

Average hamburgers, tator tots ok, could have been more done. Their peanut butter chocolate shake is fabulous but they don’t advertise it and I’m not sure how I even knew about them Jason was attentive as our waiter

Great time connecting with friends over a great meal. Other than the longer-than-expected time it took for our server to bring our checks (given there were few customers on a quiet Sunday afternoon), I had a very satisfying experience and would definitely return. I’d describe the food as southern/southwest-style comfort breakfast fare. Very delicious.
