Classic American barbecue amid retrofitted mason jar lights & exposed brick. Open late.- Google
"I recommend the pulled pork tacos with the spicy BBQ sauce on them."
"The southern fried chicken, came out looking quite dark."

Too good to describe with words. I don't live in Chicago, but I work in West Loop regularly. I've been dining and drinking at Porkchop for a couple of years now, and it's only become better as they've refined their recipes, drinks, and menu. Service is always spectacular. Everything BBQ-related they make is incredible. In fact, while I haven't actually tried every last item on the menu, I've probably had ~80% of it and there isn't a single option I haven't enjoyed. My favorites: * Fried Ribs * Red beans & rice * Black & Blue burger * Chicken & Waffles * Blackened Catfish Drinks are all fantastic. They have an excellent whiskey selection (Few, Koval, even some Van Winkles if that's your thing, plus plenty of other unique options), and the bartenders are always wonderful. They also keep their on-tap beer selections interesting and updated, too. While the food is a big part of what brings me back to Porkchop every time I'm in Chicago, the service is what turned me into a loyal regular. Always friendly, always helpful, always welcoming. Porckchop has become my own personal Cheers, with much of the staff having actually taken the time to learn and remember my name despite my relatively infrequent visits (since I'm in Chicago less than a dozen times a year). There are loads of dining options on Randolph St., many of which are excellent choices (I have tried them all), but my advice is to walk right by all of them and go straight to Porkchop if you haven't already discovered this little gem a few blocks west of Halstead.

I came here with a friend on a whim while we were in the neighborhood not really knowing what to expect. The fare is mostly bbq and southern fare in a fancy rustic (if that's even a thing) atmosphere. The fried chicken appeared to be especially popular at the other tables. We started with the fried green tomatoes which were very thick, but quite good. I had the bbq sampler which included ribs, pulled pork, pulled chicken, and sausage. The bbq all comes with a selection of four sauces for you to choose from in a variety of styles. The ribs were very tender and falling off the bone, though a bit charred for me (but that's a personal preference). Of the sauces the Texas style won out for me, BUT I am originally from Texas, so maybe that's why. Beware that the sampler is A LOT of food. The cornbread was also good, though it is sweet cornbread, so be aware. Overall some unexpectedly tasty bbq.

wanted to love it, I really did. The decor was a little funny, a little funky and a little scary - my kind of mix! Mustaches drawn on all the paintings made me laugh. re-purposed glass jars as lights made my green side grin. A wall of saws linked together by chains intrigued me. I ordered a bacon bloody Mary. The cold bacon on a skewer wasn't that great but the drink was strong and worth the $9 although, I could have used a bit more bloody. I grew very fond of shrimp and grits last year while in Georgia and South Carolina. So much, that I ordered it three times in five days. I got excited to see it on the menu. It was good but missing that special southern flare. I feel like everyone else at the table got more food for their money than I. Overall it's a decent place that I'd go back to for drinks more so than food.

Great lunch or dinner spot. I like the tacos and elotes a lot. There is this apple pie drink on the menu that is delicious. It's not usually too crowded on weekend mornings, but the brunch options are pretty good. The inside decor is interesting, and the patio space is great for a nice day.

We went here to celebrate my birthday but left a little underwhelmed. I got a burger because I heard they were good here and it was cooked too well was super dry and hard to swallow. The pretzel bun felt hard as well and did nothing to help the burger (and I love pretzel buns). The pulled pork tacos were pretty good however. I guess stick with the pork here and maybe you will be better off. As for the interior, I was expecting more as well. The best areas were the saw screen wall and the long table near the expo kitchen that was un sat the whole time. We had asked to move to a larger table because the first square table we sat at was way too small for 4 people. WIth the paper towel rolls, water, ice, drinks, etc, there was hardly any room for food! Friends came later on for drinks and we then moved to a 3rd table behind the saw screen. The banquette seats seemed hard and not too comfortable, but otherwise this seemed like it was the best table here. We probably won't be back, but if we were, we would stick with the bbq and the pork - seems like thats what they do best and will have better chances to leave more satisfied.

Ok so I didn't actually eat in the restaurant but I tried their wings and ribs during the Taste of Randolph and they were great! I have definitely considered going to the actual restaurant but I've walked passed it numerous times and there are all sorts of saws and knives hanging on the walls which totally creeps me out. Maybe I'll order take out?
