This was our second visit
This was our second visit to Rack House in as many weeks. The food choices are many and everything we have ordered so far has been excellent. The portion sizes are perfect. The bar pricing is high for the area, however the unique choices are fun.

GREAT RIBS AND BRISKET
When walking in, it's very similar in appearance to Boston Blackies as far as the set up of the restaurant. I always liked how it was set up before with the bar off to the side and the dining area straight back so I don't think there was any reason to change. The hostess greated me right away and showed me where my Unlce was sitting. We put a drink order in right away, and put our food order in after we had our drinks. I ordered the two meat combo and got brisket, ribs, and sauteed spinach. The brisket and ribs were excellent but the spinach was a little too salty for me. The corn bread that came with it was also good but I did not try the cole slaw. I think it has the best BBQ in the Arlington Heights area and I will be back soon.

Good strat on the rebirth of one of our (prior) favorite places to eat. BBQ was very good, portions generous, and service very strong. I will be back!

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
Food is excellent. Service needs improvement; seemed to be short-staffed. Wine prices are very high. Chateau St. Michelle is $10 a glass & $38 a bottle; it's our favorite wine and I buy it at Dominick's for $8.99 a bottle. That's an extremely high profit margin?????

The restaurant is NEW in a
The restaurant is NEW in a take over from a failed restaurant, although this restaurant is GREAT. The food is MODERATELY PRICED and with generous portions. I have no problem whatsover returning. One thing though I will add is that parking in the lot on a Saturday evening was very limited.

Unfortunately, the restaurant was understaffed as our waiter had to take care of our group of 10 as well as a group of 14 and several other tables

The Bloody Mary Bar for $5
The Bloody Mary Bar for $5 is a fantastic deal. The burger was real good also. Will return with no problem.

A Rack House Surprise
Really good smoked pork, ribs and brisket. Service was impeccable. Manager stopped by twice to see how we were enjoying the food. Still pretty new and undiscovered, so it was pretty easy to get reservations. I don't think that will last long. By the way, the smoked chicken wings were very exceptional. I highly recommend this restaurant. They have a great party room and exceptional bar as well.

Portions were more then enough for one. The burgers were huge and could be customized. They have daily specials. Waiter was fast, friendly, and attentive. The price was about $25 a person which included two alcoholic beverages each. TVs everywhere.

On My List
We will be returning for the meaty, tender ribs and the Carolina Pulled Pork. Portions are enough for two and there isn't anything you'd think twice about sharing because everything is delicious. Service was outstanding. Adding them to my list.

Great Casual Restaurant
Food at Rackhouse Tavern was very good! I really enjoyed the Reuben Egg Roll appetizer and the Fried Twinkie dessert!
My ribs were tasty and the side of cole slaw it came with was delicious.

This place had a very good brisket. Also, pulled pork was tasty. The portions were generous. We enjoyed the wine special (1 cent a glass with entree purchase, limit 3 pp). I had the Merlot and my friend had Pinot Grigio. I recommend the bacon wrapped shrimp as a starter which had an awesome taste. The service was a little slow. It took quite some time to place our order (but we had our drinks so were OK) and to get the bill. Overall good experience.

I brought my family here for bunch on Sunday and everyone was very pleased with their food and drinks. The majority of us got BBQ and it was very delicious! Not only was the meal delicious but the side dishes everyone picked were equally as good. Some of the tables favorites were the mac and cheese, honey butter corn dread, baked beans, and garlic mashed potatoes. We also made a trip to the Bloody Mary and Mimosa Bar and we were very impressed with the options they had. Overall, a great experience and would come back again!
