    Chicago Q has excellent BBQ (and much more). I don't know why we do hear more about them. Great ribs. Definitely worth a visit!

    Pretty good for a "for big city" BBQ joint. The potato chips deserve special attention - they were excellent.

    The food is really good here. Whenever I'm in Chicago I try and eat here... But, I think the 3% credit card charge fee is not on. This to me is a restaurant taking advantage of diners. It may only be a small amount..but it leaves a bad taste. There is a cost to do business.. Figure it out, but let's not fleece the diner

    Regrettably, both baby and St. Louis ribs were extremely overcooked. Was very disappointing. This was true of my guests ribs as well. So it was not a one son anomaly. I am a long time patron of Chicago Q, so I am hopeful this was a one time issue.

    First serve of ribs arrived cold. They were replaced. Second set of ribs were dry. Should have bad the hamburger as that looked much better.

    We are from San Diego but would not miss a chance to dine at Chicago q when we are in Chicago. Starting with the chips and pickles, this restaurant always exceeds expectations. The meats are perfectly prepared and the sauces are sensational. Wish there was a Chicago q in Southern California!

    Chips and pickles are back! Long time guests will understand that statement. ChicagoQ has returned to form from what seems like minor slippage during and after Covid.
