"What you're getting: Brisket & St. Louis Spare Ribs Like many joints North of the BBQ belt, Smoque draws various elements from all of the great regional 'que traditions, but it also nails them to a degree rarely seen in said parts. Any doubts about their attention to detail will be put to rest in their epic BBQ Manifesto, and by a peppery, tender bite of brisket followed up with a meaty pork spare rib."
INCREDIBLE, AMAZING, FANTASTIC BBQ…in Chicago!?! Listen, Chicago loves it's food and love's it meaty, hearty, and delicious! This place is the brain child of a Texas transplant, and this is far and away, hands down, no questions asked the best BBQ in a "non-traditional" BBQ place I have ever been! Best BBQ north of the Mason-Dixon line. Top 5 BBQ of my life! The meat is outstanding! The sauce is incredible! The sides are out of this world! Do not let the line discourage you. A line means something great is worth the wait!
