I visited for lunch today and had the most awesome service, the best pulled pork sandwich ever and an astounding bowl of gumbo! The decor is really cool, the food great and the service made with a smile! Give them a shot and see for yourself how great the BBQ pork sandwich is!

I frequent Randolph for its restaurants, but I'm done with this place. I've given them 5-6 times to turn around the problem with their service, but they just seem to be incompetent. It's not that they have an attitude problem (sometimes that's the vibe in a place). It's just that they don't seem to care. Food is okay or this would be a 1-star review. Randolph is on a big upswing again, so there are plenty of better options within a block or two.

The staff is always nice! Food is excellent! Can't go wrong with the smoked BBQ Chicken. Cornbread is to die for.

I so want to love this place. The food is good but not great. The Old Fashioned was amazing . It's the service that is consistently lousy. Over the three years I've tried the place off and on, it's always been poor. It's as if you're bothering the staff.

Foods good, and the staff (as someone mentioned in another review) is not the best. You ask for anything (i.e., a fork to eat your food) and it sure does seem like a big bother to them. The chicken wings they brought out were burned and appeared to have been deep fried in a vat of old cooking oil. My blacked chicken dish, didn't look at all like blackened chicken but it turned out to be pretty tasty, and I did enjoy the yummy cornbread with honey butter.

Cool decor in a hot restaurant neighborhood with tasty and creative dishes. My wife and I were in the neighborhood around lunch time and I remembered I liked Porkchop's food from the Taste of Randolph. We were happy we went in to eat, especially since they still had the breakfast menu available. My wife had the Southern Benedict and raved about it, so I had a bite. I wish I would have ordered it because the rich flavors were so delicious without getting muddled together. The gravy took the Benedict to a whole new level. I would go back to have this myself. I also enjoyed my Pulled Pork breakfast sandwich with a fried egg that added nice gooeyness. The pork was tender and it wasn't drowned in sauce so I could actually taste the smokey flavor of the meat. The potatoes with onion and peppers were a nice country side to the dishes. I will be back for breakfast again and definitely to try the dinner menu.

The decor is striking and definitely peaks interest to see what lies within, but unfortunately, that is where the marvel stopped for me. I have been there for lunch and for a whiskey and was not dazzled by either. The pulled pork tacos were great, but the brisket was definitely lacking flavor and moisture and the sides were forgettable. Additionally, I stopped in for a drink and saw they had whiskey flights. The wait staff seemed to be between shifts, which may have explained some of the delay, but the bartender did not seem to know the whiskey's from the flight which I ordered, nor how to get them down off the shelf. The wait time was quite long. When it came time for the check, there was no one new at the bar ordering drinks and still it took a long time to get the bill. The staff was inattentive to the patrons. Overall, just a mediocre pair of experiences.

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.
