Smoque B B Q Reviews
The portions aren't large, and it's pretty far from downtown, but the food is phenomenal.

One word: "brisket" enough said period!!!
by Nikko B.
The brisket cemita by Cemitas Puebla and Smoque BBQ is one of the 100 best things we ate this year. http://tmout.us/rLOtk

Awesome pulled pork!!!
by Daniella V.
Die-hards head to Smoque, a spot so serious about ’cue a manifesto was written about it. The sliced brisket is known to make grown men cry.
AWESOME mac n' cheese.
by Lisabeth R.
Peach Cobbler is a must have side!
by Nicholas P.
You cannot beat this mouth watering BBQ. Try to get here a little early for lunch, they run out of BBQ.

by Allyson H.
Great Mac n cheese. Substitute cornbread for the coleslaw.
by Susanna A.
The St. Louis ribs were incredible. I did some with sauce and some without. Didn't really need it, but great either way.
by Seth R.

by Colin K.
Try the 1/2 And 1/2 And Sides (via @Foodspotting)
by Mike K.
Good, but I think The Pork Shoppe on Belmont's got a better rub.
by Todd G.
Настоящее ББЮ место ,вкусно всё! Но в "Огонь и Лёд" вкуснее.)
They should make their items order-able from my smart phone by adding them to the app "appay biz". That way, I can order ahead using "appay"!!!!!!!!

by T. S.
Brisket all day!
by Ari D.
The best smoked brisket ever!
by Andriy S.
Absolutely amazing brisket sandwich. It was so flavorful and you could literally taste the smoke.
by William W.
A pulled pork sandwich truly done right - huge hunks of meat on a delicious bun. A nearly perfect sauce. Points deducted for the coleslaw though, it's more like an onion salad.
by Jake S.
Ask for the spicy BBQ sauce, which I found tastier than the regular. Take advantage of the "Add a Taste" menu to maximize your sampling. Great food and service!
by David B.
This place isn't all that! There's alot of better places in the city! And aloy cheaper too!
by Kevin B.
Good food! Just expect to wait lol
by Kevin B.
So good. Lived up to expectations. Left wanting more. Ughhhh
by Tommy C.
The St. Louis ribs, mac 'n' cheese, and peach cobbler are must haves! Nom!
by Libertine V.
Try the Sliced Brisket Sandwich - The smoke flavor, tenderness and bite from the sauce all were in perfect harmony. Only thing missing was a bourbon. (via @Foodspotting)
by Jason M.
Food is good. Atmosphere is relaxed
by Dee M.
Chopped brisket is phenomenal, as is the pulled pork.
by Jacob H.
The best pulled pork ever and the BBQ sauce has just the right amount of heat! I highly recommend!!!
by Jeffrey M.
They are closed on Mondays :(
by Dana B.
O. M. F. G. Everything I had, other than the okay-but-not great brisket chili, was the absolute best. Had melt-in-your-mouth sliced brisket, better-than-Memphis pulled pork, mac & cheese, cole slaw.
by Chuck R.
Amazing! I'll make this a normal eating spot!
by Dominique T.
Like little the pizza joint you will leave here saying , BRISKET , BRISKET, BRISKET....!!!!!
by Sammy C.
In a city with many BBQ places, smoque reigns as the best. I have traveled to most of the renowned BBQ places from KC to Texas to Memphis and the Carolina's and no place comes as close as this one
by Michael G.
Brisket is totally incredible. You won't be disappointed.
by Shaun R.
Best BBQ in Chicago. That's a Fact.
The brisket is very tender and awesome. Texas sausage is pretty good. I will say that Sweet Baby Rays has better pork, better buns better cornbread, and much much much better sauce. :-)
by Patrick O.
Closed on Monday's! Boo that!
by Amy H.
My wife and visited from Austin, and I am a BBQ snob,, and I can clearly say this is the best sliced brisket I have EVER had. Ever.
Brisket is the shit, wish the sides were bigger, but smaller sides that taste great are better then larger portions of crap like Pork Shoppe.
by Michael B.
Come earlier to get a table. Oh and the cornbread is amazing!
Some of the best BBQ you've had made by a series of guys who set out to cross BBQ borders and blend styles. Get a platter and add a taste of everything else. Try not to die of obesity.
by Rick J.
Cemita night is the best night. Two incredible Chicago eats combined... This is what it tastes like when WORLDS COLLIDE!!!!
by Joe M.
Try the brisket! The fries and mac 'n cheese are very good as well.
by Phillip N.
The brisket sandwich, the pulled pork, the St. Louis ribs, and even the yummy sides live up to the hype. BYO and get in line.

Pulled pork and mac & cheese. 'Nuff said.
by Kirstjen L.
GET THE MAC N CHEESE!
by Daniel G.
Everything is good, but their brisket is amazing.
by Jim M.
Call ahead to order if u are carrying out to avoid lines....trust! Tuesday or weekend doesnt matter
by Nicole E.
You can order a platter of brisket and have it half sliced and half chopped for same price!
by Michael (Kuba) R.
Sliced brisket is out of this world! Don't skip the sides, esp the Mac n Cheese. Yummy goodness all around here.
by Angela L.
Try the Mac and cheese. So delicious!
by Demi B.
It can be a long wait in line sometimes but is so worth it. Best brisket ever! Also love the sweet vinegar coleslaw.
by Ashley S.
Run like a top.
by Jonathan S.
The line often winds around the block at this Northwest Side ’cue fave. The beautifully marbled brisket’s the star of the show, but the St. Louis spareribs and chicken are equally droolworthy.
by Time Out Chicago Kids
Best Texas style BBQ in chicago
by Erika H.
Get the brisket
by Dave F.
Every this is finger licking good. The sauce is slightly spicy and ha a little kick, but enough to leave you wanting more. The Mac and cheese is crispy and delicious. :)
by Phillip S.
I try never to order the same thing twice, but Smoque is the exception to that rule. Half slab of Saint Louis style ribs, side of coleslaw, mac and cheese, and peach cobbler. Come hungry.
by Nate Y.
Spareribs are pull-apart tender with a subtle smokiness. The Brisket is beautifully marbled beef is given just the right treatment to yield tender bite after tender bite, whether chopped or sliced.
