    33333 by Julius B.


  • Jillian BurnickasI'm not even a big BBQ person but I was really impressed with the food. The brisket is really good. I wish they had a spicy BBQ sauce though.

    55555 by Jillian Burnickas


  • Bitches Who B.The classic Smoke Daddy pulled pork was stacked atop a very run-of-the-mill English muffin and covered with perfectly poached eggs and a chipotle hollandaise sauce. http://bit.ly/1KDkmDb

  • Aaron CAwesome pulled pork sandwich and ribs

    55555 by Aaron C

  • Amando CRibs were amazing

    55555 by Amando C


  • Amy L.Twice now as a vegetarian, I've had a fantastic breakfast here. The Wicker Park Omelette is excellent, as is a Bloody Mary minus the meat skewer.

    55555 by Amy L.

  • Adam R.The patio is great. Great Wicker Park destination restaurant.

    55555 by Adam R.

    33333 by Joe C.

  • nikki h.My husband came here three nights in a row. Have to admit it's pretty ridiculously good. Must haves: wings (the chipotle ranch is addictive) and sweet potato fries (tossed in cinnamon sugar). YUM

    55555 by nikki h.


  • David H.Rib tips and wings

    55555 by David H.

  • Sandra A.Great food, nice atmosphere, great service

    55555 by Sandra A.


  • DailyCandyThe Daddy is a Wicker Park standby. Go for the pulled pork and indulgent weekend brunch (the fried peanut butter and banana sandwich is a must); stay for the giant patio and live music.

    55555 by DailyCandy


  • Jennie B.Wowzers! Order the blueberry cornbread to start. Absurdly delicious.

    55555 by Jennie B.

    55555 by Rachel


  • Maria R.Cajun Fish Sandwich with mac n cheese was a win!

    55555 by Maria R.


  • Robin E.Eat outside on the patio while the weather is nice. I recommend ordering the pulled meat nachos!

    55555 by Robin E.


  • CircaTry the bloody mary. Its awesome.

    55555 by Circa


  • Melissa K.The food is delicious! The Pit Baked Beans are awesome, and they even made me a Sweet Tea/Lemonade. Happy I decided to go!

    55555 by Melissa K.


  • TaraIf you like dry rubs or at least being able to add your own choice of sauce, this place is not for you. I'm sure the meats are great on their own but everything was very oversauced. Wouldn't go back.

    33333 by Tara


  • Jake S.Pulled pork sandwich here is a bit small, so order it Carolina Style (additional $1.50) to fill the bun out. Use the white-capped sauce (it's the best of the three). Bonus: Seasonal Sam Adams on tap!

    55555 by Jake S.


  • Keith T.The platter of Ribs and Tips and Pulled Pork Nachos are really Good.

    55555 by Keith T.

    55555 by Jeff W.


  • Ron H.I got the half-rack of ribs with the half-chicken...one of the best combo's I've had in a long while! Pretty good local jazz band was playing on Sunday night.

    55555 by Ron H.


  • Mary B.The Jalapeno Beer Cheese. Oh god, the beer cheese.

    55555 by Mary B.


  • Andrew M.BEST wings

    55555 by Andrew M.


  • Andrés G.The service in this place is terrible. Rude and disrepectful. The waitress barely waited for me to finish my dinner to pick up all the things on my table. Definitely not the best bbq in town.

    22222 by Andrés G.


  • Stephanie A.Andrew Diehl and the Nightmen are the best act here. Do NOT miss.

    55555 by Stephanie A.

    33333 by Nick

    55555 by Hardik C.


  • Steve M.The sampler plate is delicious!

    55555 by Steve M.


  • alan @.smoked wings all day!

    55555 by alan @.


  • Time Out ChicagoReserve your hunger for “The Rib Sampler,” a huge plate of baby back ribs, spareribs and rib tips. Don’t worry: The pink, smoky meat pulls off the bone easily, so you’ll clean your plate.

    55555 by Time Out Chicago


  • Leslie M.The nachos are really special.

    55555 by Leslie M.


  • Rachel H.Great classic rock music during the day

    55555 by Rachel H.


  • Mike E.Yeah the BBQ is good but you haven't lived until you've had a bloody mary that's topped with a skewer of pulled pork and bacon and chased with a pony of Miller (4 of 4 petals via Fondu)

    55555 by Mike E.


  • Veza M.Smoked Brisket & sweet potato fries!

    55555 by Veza M.


  • Joshua M.Pulled pork sandwich yum

    55555 by Joshua M.


  • Tom P.Dollar wings, very good especially with a Daddy Style cheeseburger.

    55555 by Tom P.


  • Nick A.Usually I ignore the fanfare surrounding restaurants offering sweet potato fries but they are actually really good here. Crispy, not vegetably like other places. Also, RIBSS! The best!

    55555 by Nick A.


  • Kyle M.Really good smoked pit beans. They mix some meat in so it's almost like chili.

    55555 by Kyle M.


  • Staci S.The pulled pork sandwich with a mixture of the KC & Chicago sauce is bbq heaven. The mac is also amazing.

    55555 by Staci S.

    55555 by Justin S.


  • Max H.Fried apple pie. Yep.

    55555 by Max H.


  • Angie L.The sweet potato fries and the blues are both terrific

    55555 by Angie L.

    33333 by Morgan D.


  • La PalapaBest Ribs in Chicago!!Best Macaroni and Chesse!

    55555 by La Palapa


  • Annie C.Live blues almost nightly, great atmosphere

    55555 by Annie C.

    55555 by Kurt U.


  • Paul A.Best Bloody Mary in the neighborhood

    55555 by Paul A.


  • Anthony C.Very good food! Great service!

    55555 by Adam B.


  • Brandon S.Try the platter! But definitely sample some of the local brews while you wait for your table at the packed bar

    55555 by Brandon S.


  • Chris J.They have 3 types of BBQ sauce. SWEET was my favorite. MUSTARD based. Awesome. ORIGINAL IS VINEGAR BASED. it's the default BBQ of the restaurant

    55555 by Chris J.


  • Chris J.Try the Brisket sandwich. Amazeballs!

    55555 by Chris J.


  • Jough D.Excellent collard greens but the sweet potato fries are a little on the soggy side. Not much smoky flavor to the meat. I wonder if they don't actually cook the meat in the smoker.

    33333 by Jough D.


  • Michelle S.Marielle the bartender is the best damn bartender...doesn't hurt that she's easy on the eyes too!

    55555 by Michelle S.


  • Elizabeth B.love the ribs, brisket, and pulled pork...always with mac n cheese and slaw. Texan approved!

    55555 by Elizabeth B.


  • Paul S.The pork is where it's at. The cornbread and bbq chips are both great sides. The waitress seemed a tad disinterested but it didn't take away from the great tasting food.

    55555 by Paul S.


  • Sophie G.3 words: sweet potato fries.

    55555 by Sophie G.

  • Peter T.Order the pulled pork nachos!!

    55555 by Peter T.


  • Dane D.My favorite is a medium-rare cheddar cheeseburger with bacon, grilled onions, lettuce and tomato with a side of their baked mac & cheese. You won't regret it.

    55555 by Dane D.


  • Christopher M.Stick with the collard greens and sweet potato sides doesn't disappoint.

    33333 by Damian D.


  • tankboyIf they seat you early make sure someone gets assigned to your table. We left after 15 minutes of being ignored as everyone around us ordered.

    22222 by tankboy


  • Keith W.Good food live band, had a good time.

    55555 by Keith W.

    55555 by Adam N.


  • Kyle CAsk for whatever the new craft beers Josh has behind the bar and give them a try. They are always a good match for each season and tasty

    55555 by Kyle C
