We came here for dinner on a Monday night and were seated right away. We ordered the entree with 3 different meats and upgraded to the Ribs + Chicken + Pulled Pork. We also ordered a side of Macaroni and Cheese. The platter came out with a bit less pulled pork than we expected, but there was Plenty of ribs and chicken to make up for it. I think the chicken was the most tender bbq chicken I've ever had. It was amazing! The Ribs were delicious too - they weren't quite fall off the bone, but still super tender with a crispy crust. The mac & cheese was amazing! It's simple, but delicious. All around Amazing BBQ - I want to go back and try everything on the menu!

Good BBQ but could be better, nice place with a layed back feel. If you don't like meat and lots of it, don't come here..! Food is good, and drinks are served in moonshine jam jars. Likeable place, warm and friendly atmosphere

Awesome variety of barbequed foods. There are a fair number of options on the menu, and a nice assortment of BBQ sauces to match. The cocktail and beer menu were also interesting. A great stop in the Wicker Park neighborhood with some outdoor seating.

I'm not sure how many times I've been here since January, my bosses often default to coming here for lunch because they seem to love it. Solid place but with each visit I have come to dislike it a bit more and more. I think I'm at the point where if they decide to go there anytime soon... I might actually decline a free lunch. Again, solid place, not the best BBQ in Chicago nor do I think anything is going to make you say WOW! but I haven't had any issues with food quality or service. Worth a try if you have never been. I must echo the issue over the crotch lint. Don't put the cloth napkin on your lap unless you're some sort of gymnastics instructor decked out in an Adidas nylon track suit.

I hear many rumblings complaining about the service but I haven't had any issues the couple times I've been. Probably my favorite pulled pork sammy in the city, and the many sauce choices definitely help. Also their mac and cheese is one of the best in the city.

It's ok food, but overpriced for what it is...pretty bland and generic. On top of that the vibe in the restaurant felt really fake - they were doing things like mixing Dolly Parton in with the normal indie playlist, like kids playing dress up at being from the south or something.

The SMOKED FRIED CHICKEN! It is hands down the best dish offered. It's ridiculous and the side of tupelo honey is amazing. I also love their moonshine cocktails...especially the cat daddy. Their new fried chicken window is pretty cool as well. The 3 piece is PLENTY for 2. I wish they would offer better sides though. The collared greens were ok but I was really disappointed with the potato salad. Really weird seasoning and the potatoes were just cold roasted potatoes.

Last evening, we had the most magnificent meal and dining experience with a dear friend in Bucktown at Lillie's Q. I am embarrassed to say that we are typical 5 star diners but we diverted from our typical haunts because we had heard about Lillie's Q's recent award in the shoulder competition at the world championship of BBQ - Memphis in May a couple weeks ago. This is a 5 star with a different flair. The food was amazing ( still getting used to the collard greens). The attention to detail ( i.e. how the oysters were served) and the knowledge of the staff with regard to the assortment of sauces was beyond impressive. The salad was so fresh, the avocado was perfect and the black eyed peas were the perfect touch. The hushpuppies and grits were better than I have ever had anywhere the pulled pork and chicken with the recommended Lillie's Q sauces were beyond exceptional. I never knew BBQ could be so good. As I prepare for next time, I need to learn a bit more about "moonshine". Very fun atmosphere, terrific night catch up with a good friend, prices so reasonable. Wish we had a Lillie's Q near me.
