Loved it! Best BBQ sauce (both types) in town. Ribs have tons of meat on them, tender, yet still meaty. The corn bread is to die for. Their sweetened iced tea works perfectly with the meal. Lovely balance in the food. Can not wait to try other items on the menu. Have recommended place to countless people. Great prices especially considering quality and quantity of the food. I hope this place is around for a long time!

Besides a "meh" service, the food was quite delicious. If you're hungry, I recommend the chicken and waffle sandwich - sweet, savory, and definitely filling. The sides are delicious as well - especially the spinach. Really decorative environment too.

Randomly tried this place and it was great. The BBQ was amazing, as well as the service. Also had great drink specials. Great vibe throughout the restaurant. Will return

I really like this place. If I'm being honest, I think it's because it's the only reasonably priced, good quality porkchop that I know of in the city. But in any case, this spot is very casual: bench and booth-type seating. I've never had anything bad on the menu and the service has always been pretty good. Pretty decent beer list as standard prices (e.g. $5 for a 312) and they supposedly sport some whiskeys too, though I've never had them. I guess this is my "comfort restaurant" without all of the "comfort food" persay.

Tuesday $2 dollar whiskey shots. Not sure if they still have it as a special, as I went over the summer, but if they do its a great day to visit. I've been to Porkchop a few times and always have had a great experience. Food is excellent. The grilled pork chop is probably my favorite on the menu. And its reasonably priced especially considering all the other restaurants on the Randolph strip. If you are looking for a dinner spot thats not a black tie affair or a sports bar, this is the spot for you. Its right in the middle. Whisky and Pork... Hard combination to beat.

Gave Porkchop a 2nd try today and walked away feeling the same, "it's just okay." The hushpuppies appetizer was not good. Hard as a rock and very dry. I would not order them again. The pulled pork was above average and the bbq sauce was pretty good. Service was good and ambience is fine, but the place smells like stale beer and the floors are sticky. Not bad in a pinch, but definitely won't go out of my way to go there.
