Southern Cut Barbecue
Fantastic food, service, and atmosphere. We ate at several places during our stay in Chicago and Southern Cut was by far the best!
Good BBQ, conveniently located, happened upon it walking back to hotel.
Food was outstanding, the restaurant as a whole was fantastic as always. Sarah, our waitress, was absolutely horrible.
Couches are very uncomfortable for dining. Had to move to a regular table. Didn’t have Bulleit which is on the menu. Server didn’t know bourbons to help with selection even though that seems to be a focus of the restaurant. Took a long time for server to come back to take food order because she was talking to other workers near kitchen. Restaurant had few customers so it was not that she was busy. Cornbread advertises having jalapeño but none detected. No heat at all. A little too dry. Food ok and came out cold or warm, nothing hot. No one thought it was good, just ok. Based on food quality we had no reason to look at desert menu. Will not be back or recommend.
Jalapeno cornbread was absolutely delicious. Smoked BBQ was excellent as well.
Good food and well priced. Very good service also. But the whole restaurant is very noisy and we made the mistake of sitting in the bar area which, when we arrived, was quite quiet. Then half way into our meal a loud party arrived at the bar and as often happens showed no thought for those around them. They camped out almost on top of our table and partied, loudly and inconsiderately. Probably not smart to eat in the bar area but the selfishness of some people and disregard for others never fails to astound me. Our meal and experience was ruined, but not the fault of the Southern Cut BbQ
Best barbecue I've had in Chicago in a long time! The banana pie is like eating a piece of heaven!
It's not the *best* barbecue, but for a convenient neighborhood place it's good enough.
We had a fantastic breakfast - avocado toast , eggs, wonderfully seasoned potatoes , and ham with a split of buttermilk pancakes . Everything was an A+ : great food , service and outside seating . It is a go to place .
Service was slow and kind of strange. Whole experience was weird. Food good.
Food was fantastic. Sara was our server and she was great! The ribs were so tender they feel of the bone. My wife had the pulled pork and loved it.
Disappointed in the quality of the service and food. The brisket was nowhere near the restaurant grade, especially at the cost and level expected from a Cut restaurant. Would not recommend.
Staff was nice and informative and the free birthday pie was great
Our granddaughter wanted ribs and ribs she got! Our group ordered other things as well, and no one was disappointed. Recommended highly!
Extreme delay in receiving food despite being one of the tables seated. Brisket hash came with only 3 small pieces of brisket.
Went for Sunday brunch and just loved it. Terrific menu, service, food-- all really good. We will be back!
Wasn’t sure what to expect. Food was good, made reservation and did not have to wait. The atmosphere was conducive to talking. Waiter was excellent.
I've been here for lunch several times and enjoyed it. For dinner, they were out of entries and refused to substitute. Being out of entries is bad enough, but then refusing to substitute is essentially saying that they don't care. Perhaps its the attitude of a hotel restaurant, but there are other incredible BBQ places in Chicago that care about their diners.
Service was horrible, the only time we truly saw our server is when he was looking for payment.
The staff at Southern Cut BBQ really took great care of us. Seated promptly, engaging server, thoughtful recommendations, the right ambiance and perfectly prepared food. It's now on our go to list for Chicago, downtown.
The food and service were superb. We were there at a quiet time of day which is exactly what we wanted. The Decour was functional and not opulent.
I will be back.
Day after wedding brunch. Service was great. Food was better. Can’t wait to go back.
Not enough staff to handle the amount of clientele in the restaurant waitress was absent for too long while we waited.
I had a good experience, but the “couch” where I was sitting made the table surface at armpit level. And I’m a strong believer that every BBQ place needs sweet tea.
Great food and service. Really enjoyed every piece. No leftovers due to everyone eating everything on their plate. Highly recommend.
Best ribs and Brisket ever. Loved the bread and butter pickles, too!
We made reservations for 7:30pm on Saturday night. We arrived on time and were seated right away which was nice. We ordered our drinks and spinach artichoke dip appetizer, which did not arrive until 8:20. Then
Very good menu selection. Nice atmosphere. Great food in a nice location.
They were spectacular with our kids! Wonderful experience!
This place is amazing. Quick, great vibes, music, etc. would have my wedding reception here(not literally but would consider) witness I had was really good looking but not only that, was very nice and a people person. Almost have to drop my gf to to get a chance with her lol(joking)
Love the environment and the manager was friendly and attentive. The food was beautifully presented but very bland-sauces and macaroni and cheese specifically had very little flavor.
Friendly, great neighborhood spot with excellent food and service.
Hair in my food. Enough said.
We ate at 4:30 so place was basically empty. We had 2 managers come to our table multiple times to check on us to the point where we could not keep a conversation going we were interrupted so many times.
The food was fair at best. Very little smoke flavor on the ribs. The max and cheese was the worst I have had in a long time. Zero flavor. Tasted like straight noodle, no cheese, no spice, no nothing.
On top of that, over $240 for bbc is crazy.
Wished I discovered this three years ago when they opened. Going back again very soon.
Best old fashioneds! And the bbq was amazing! Have already told many to go!
Made a last minute reservation to go here to meet my ma and sister before they went to a play nearby. We needed a quick great meal and that's exactly what we got. Service was good, food was good, and cool ambiance. I want to go back when I am not in a rush and can fully enjoy the meal.
Wow! What a gem, had a great dinner date the food amazing. I’m not a fan of coleslaw but I enjoyed every bite. Must order the cornbread. Definitely coming back and letting family & friends know.
We enjoyed a wonderful dinner prior to a show. Service was great and food outstanding. Wish we lived local so we could frequent more often.
We stay across the street at the Residence Inn and thought it would be nice to go somewhere close. The cornbread was some of the best I've had, pull pork was pretty decent, but it ended just about there. Brisket was dry and ribs were not that good. Service was subpar, consistently trying to flag someone down to help us. We won't be returning since there are so many more places to spend our moneybat in Chicago.
