Compared to Texas barbecue, the brisket dinner was average. The coleslaw was very good. The coconut crème pie was excellent. The service was fine. Nice place. Just a little pricy for average barbecue.

This is the second time we had a reservation and were quoted an additional 30-45 minute wait when we arrived.
Today we couldn’t even stay for a table because we had movie plans. The first time I thought it was an exception. The second time was inexcusable.

Casual fun dinner. Our server was great. Food was good but not a great value. For the price of the full slab rib dinner, we felt it should have come with at least a choice of one side. Also, I was surprised the grilled chicken added to my salad was cold, like right out of the fridge cold.

Great food and service. Only complaint is that we had a table near the door and people kept going in and out making it pretty cold there. Would be good to have a better barrier there during the colder months. (I know, April shouldn’t be a colder month.)

Food was great. Seafood boil was very good, although the crab legs can probably be swapped out for more shrimp or another sausage as they are very small. Waitress was very attentive in a place that was completely packed. Nice work!

Fun place! My mom and I stopped in here while attending a show at the convention center in Rosemont. It was a Friday night and it was packed so thankfully we had the reservation. Really had a great time here. Had no idea that it was going to be large bar blaring country music but it was and we were not mad. The waitress was friendly...she picked up on my Boston accent immediately which was impressive since I'd hardly said anything! Started off with a big pretzel for an appetizer. My meal was the pulled pork sandwich and my mom had the mac 'n cheese. All the food was awesome. Thumbs up all around. Would definitely go back here if we are ever back in the area. Note: It may not be as "wild" on a weeknight...we were there on a Friday night and it was loud and fun but everyone was well behaved and in good spirits.

My ribs was salty, dry and cold The baked potato was hard and not cook thoroughly. My husband enjoyed the Fried chicken a lot. The waiter spilled water on my nephew and charged the whole bill on my husband credit card while he was supposed to split the bill. The bathroom had no toilet paper and it was filthy.

We were seated at a table in a part of the restaurant that was in the direct line of the setting sun, and you could not see. Eventually someone closed a curtain that blocked most of it so that was good. The music on the speaker was very loud which made table conversation difficult. I would have preferred at a place like Bub City to have some local musicians playing an acoustic set at a lower volume level. There was a band next door but you could not hear it. I would think for the price you are charged that there could be some entertainment in the restaurant. It would help the ambiance of this "country" establishment.

The food was absolutely amazing! Highly recommend the giddy up fries. There’s enough to feed at least 4 people as an app. We got the 3-meat platter with chicken, pork shoulder and brisket. Everything was cooked to perfection. The brussel sprouts and baked beans were great as sides. Our waiter was incredibly attentive. It is a loud atmosphere as joes was doing a sound check while there. However, this gave it a great ‘Nashville’ feel. Will definitely be back!

The food was all cold when it was supposed to be hot and drinks were hot when they were supposed to be cold. The ribs were not good. These are not "fall off the bone" ribs. You have to chew on them to get the meat off. It was just terrible. For a LEYE restaurant, they need to up their game. It was not even close to on par.

Bub City has some good BBQ and Southern fare coupled with great Whiskey's/Bourbons and microbrews. My Pulled Pork sandwich had a great smokey flavor with excellent Tater-tots.
We had an early dinner so we could catch Los Lobos at Joe's next door. Service was excellent!

Barbeque is very individual. I just didn't care for this particular flavor. I had the pulled chicken sandwich and the chicken was dry. The fries were so so and not my favorite cole slaw, but again, I know that's a very individual thing. I did taste my friend's latke fries and they were great. Wish I'd ordered those. The service was excellent as it almost always is at a Lettuce restaurant.
