Went for our anniversary before a concert. Service was great and the food was good but choices a little limited. I had the 2
Meat combo with ribs
And wings and 2 sides and there was more than enough to eat. They also gave us some champagne and ice cream as part of the celebration. Overall a good experience.

We had a wonderful time, we stopped for dinner before a concert at Joe’s.
We were seated immediately, our server was excellent. He asked if we had been there before, we had and told him so. He told us what the drink specials were, and gave us plenty of time to decide what to order.
The atmosphere was great, everyone on staff were friendly and helpful.
The food was wonderful, and served quickly.
We will return soon.

Claudia the hostess was so friendly and accommodating especially since we were late to our reservation and I love the convenience of going into Joe’s bar without having to stand outside

Bub City was great spot for our Sunday brunch -- from the Bloody Mary bar, to the delicious bites and live music!

Really great service. Very good food
A fun atmosphere. Don't know what happened with the band - played one song and then sat down.

Wasn’t a fan of warm water. Plus server was barely around. Food was pricey for the amount you get.

Was visiting from Austin, Texas which has one of the best BBQ scenes in the world, so I was a little apprehensive about how this 'Cue would be. My wife and I both thought Bub City was excellent - nice to find great BBQ far from home!

My husband and I came here to celebrate our 2 year anniversary. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and drinks. It was a Satruday afternoon we had reservations and it was quick service. I would recommend this place to anymore.

Had a great meal and truly enjoyed everything. I never understand why Open Table asks if it is a special occassion because every time I say it is the evening is no different than when there isn't a special occasion.

Good food and was happy (& surprised) that a country & western band was playing. Spent evening dining then listened to band. Fun and overall was inexpensive (for the combo of dinner & a show).

Bub City was a great experience, not too fancy & food blew away all expectations. Our server Brandon was very friendly and informative. Bartenders brought drinks to the table very quickly. We had a party of 6 and they accommodated our rowdy table well. Great atmosphere with lots of TVs to keep up with all sporting events. Would love to go back for brunch!

Great vibe for families when it's early and great vibe for adults when it's late night. The food was really good and the service was great. I think the value for the mixed drinks could have been a bit better compared to the others in the area. The drinks were smaller than I expected.

Food was great and enjoyed the vibe! The service was so slow and multiple requests needed to be made two or three times. This included coming to ask if we want an appetizer after we ordered one about 10 minutes before. We had three kids with and were there for a 4:30 reservation, so we didn't expect long waits when the restaurant was pretty empty when we arrived.

Fun night out with friends who were visiting from out of town. Service, food, outdoor dining all excellent. Volume on music a bit loud to have conversation, but a good experience by all.

It was a great place to meet friends on a beautiful day . They have outside seating and you are not on a tiny sidewalk. They also have inside seating by an open wall to the outside. The food is good and the service excellent.

Great venue. I had the nachos with beef brisket. The brisket was basically dumped on the top of the nachos. There were pieces of pure fat on the nachos. Also, the cilantro included the stem and not just the leaves. Service was slow to start and then improved once the server came over.

Very good brisket and trucker snacks! My only complaint was the lemonade tasted off. Super server and manager was great also. Would recommend for a quick bite before leaving O'Hare.

This is my 2nd visit to Bub City. I discovered the place couple of weeks ago while on a conference, and fell in love with the BBQ Bacon Burger and the seasoned fries; the best in a very long time! Then, I brought my family with me this time so we can all enjoy this experience. Great beer selection, good atmosphere and outside seating, and attentive staff.

Noise level was high due to it being a free concert night. There are too much music competing at the same time at Rosemont.

The staff was very accommodating considering there was 13 of us and 5 children. The appetizers were large and very good. The staff was very attentive and gave us extra space when needed. The noise level was fine until the band started and unfortunately with the kids most had to leave. The food was outstanding. We would do it again but would prefer to be farther from the stage. Atmosphere was comfortable.

My husband and I enjoyed having brunch on the outside patio with Bloody Mary's and a hearty country breakfast -- everything was delicious. Our experience was made even better because of our server, Danny (not sure of the spelling as this was a female). She was pleasant, attentive and very accommodating. Great time!

For BBQ? It just isnt anything past "OK". Menu was sooo limited for food. Whiskey and beer was numerous.
I wouldnt go back. My opinion is you can get better BBQ at Famous Daves or 4 or 5 different restaurants.
Our bill for 2 people with 2 beers and 2 "Moscow Mules"(the mules didnt taste like any mule ive had before, yuck) was $90.00. Add in Rosemont parking garage fee of $15.00. It is not worth it!

It's a casual Bbq place with good food. Atmosphere is fun with music at times. Good drinks and small
menu focusing on smoked meats. They have good sides and desserts too. Outside dinning.
