Great food, great service... I’m a fan, and I will continue to be...
The wait staff was preoccupied with drinking at the bar....did not get waited on till 10 minutes and really not a place to go back to....
Food was disgusting
Place was completely empty which was surprising. They had barely any alcohol behind the bar because they were in the middle of redoing the bar?
bad mac and cheese. good portions. ok food. but confusing menu
If you go to Porkchop, get the pork chop. Unbelievably delicious. It’s been there several times and there’s never anybody there. Hard to believe it can stay open. Last time there, it was dark. No, really dark. The bank of lights above us was turned off, and the server couldn’t figure out how to turn them on.
Drop ceiling was actually dropping but other than that this was awesome BBQ great sauce selection. Friendly staff
Food was really good; initially surprised about the size of the apps but that was short lived once the entre came. The service was a little slow and the waiter/bartender never gave us much chance to react after they had asked us something. Overall, great food in a small space
Pros: The food was delicious! The decor and atmosphere of the bar/restaurant was very cool.
Cons: We made a reservation following a graduation. There was only one person working which seemed odd on a UIC graduation day. So the service was inevitably a little slow. Also ordered a bloody mary and they didn't have them. I don't think I have ever been to a bar/restaurant that didn't serve bloody marys. Again just a little strange.
Overall we would recommend giving it a try.
It was very cold and the service was horrible. Initially, we were not given any menus, yet after waiting 10 minutes, a server came over and asked what we wanted to order. We ordered appetizers but all of our food came out at the same time.
Not at all what I expected....food was good and service was equally good.
Was hoping for a new tasty restaurant for restaurant. Unfortunately this wasn’t it.
We went there for dinner and after walking in it was pretty empty except for the loud family who had kids running around like it was there house and you can tell they have been there a while because the server never went over to them, the tables and floors were sticky, the bathroom looked like we were at a late night bar and it was only 530 on a Sunday. We had intentions to order dinner but only got as far as appetizers. We ordered nachos with pork waited 20 mins for them and they finally came out cold and by the looks of they I wasn't sure I was at a high school cafeteria or BBQ joint, the taste was ok it was mostly chips with a little cold cheese and cold pork. After that we left.
Ate at 9:00 at night. Restaurant was not crowded at that time and were seated right away. Food was great.
We didn't like the selection of the menu or the food. The fried chicken had no seasoning, the green bean were not good, but they did comp us for that. The grits were absolutely horrible, the were lumpy and hard, my husband put butter in them and tried to fix them up, but it just didn't work. This was not a good experience for us and we will not visit again or recommend this restaurant to anyone. The service was very good, if the food was as good as the service everything would have been alright. This was also our first time there and this is the restaurant we choose. We said we should have went to Nandos which was a couple of doors down or we could have went to Wishbone. We wish we could have gotten our money back, we were not pleased at all.
Understaffed. Bad management. No help to servers.
Awesome experience and great staff thanks for the great evening!
Food was average at best. Service was awful. Was 8:00 on a a Saturday night and the place was empty. You would think that with so few patrons, the service would be better. Maybe others have figured out that the West Loop has much better offerings elsewhere.
Shrimp and grits were excellent. Not for vegetarians, but the name is Porkchop.
The ambiance is nice;the mimosa were really good and cheap. However , the food was horrible . I expected more and I was let down. The people I came with they enjoyed the food for what it was;Very tasteless . I am a person that doesn't use salt but the food needed more " doctoring up" .
Had Natalie as a server and she was hilarious and had fantastic recommendations. The food is phenomenal - similar to Green St. Meats with more of a low key vibe.
Pricing is completely fair and I repeat, food is bomb
Brought a group of 17 people to eat at Porkchop-Westloop after my graduation. A lot of them do not usually eat out or eat the food served at Porkchop. But we all loved it! Great service, even when the wrong order was made or when the food wasn't what we expected.
It was just ok. Nothing spectacular. The service was ok and could have been better. To be a rib place the ribs weren't the best item, the shrimp was.
Found the room laid-back and comfortable (but it was pretty cold inside). Food we had - BBQ - was good, not great, but I did enjoy the gumbo quite a bit. Best thing about Pork Chop is the staff, friendly and attentive. A nice perk was the $5 shot and beer bar special - awesome!
Our waitress had to come to our table 4 different times to ask us to repeat our order. We were her only table!! The manager also offered to comp us our two beers, but then he got the comp beer order wrong so we had to send them back.
Would not recommend.
Eclectic, small, friendly and hip.
Just a couple of words I would use to describe Pork Chop.
I thought it was very price effective in that dinner for two, two appetizers, and two drinks for under $50.
Brisket was outstanding. Do was the cornbread. Very authentic BBQ. The homemade sauces are great!
The wings were amazing. Everything else was mediocre. All their BBQ sauces tasted the same! Struggled to order, get silverware, the check, etc.
Food was incredible. Highly recommend Porkchop for casual dining.
The food was good which made up for the fact that the service was TERRIBLE. We saw two tables walk in and get seated but leave because it took so long for a server to come over. The waitress working was either new or just didn't know what she was doing because we had to ask multiple times for things and our drinks were forgotten until we walked up to the bar ti get them. We had to ask 3 times for our check even though our table was clear and we had no food. Food was the saving grace of this spot.
Had a few drinks and a couple of appetizers that were good. I would recommend this place 9x out of 10.
We had great time for a birthday dinner. We got done in time for a Bulls game. Good place in West Loop.
The server / waitress on my party's visit was a little brusque and would leave the table making faces if we didn't decide on ordering more quick enough (for her). The food was adequate for a BBQ place; the chicken & waffles was tasty except for the gristle left in the meat.
There are plenty of other BBQ places in Chicago if you're looking for decent offerings of food; at least this place did a decent job with their beer selection.
Also someone was out the back of the restaurant smoking weed and the smoke made its' way through the restaurant; apparently this isn't something to react to.
Very fast service. We had show tickets and I was worried but our food was served in 15 min or so. Great burgers, too.
I was not really impressed. We had the chicken and waffles and the chicken was overcooked and under seasoned. My husband had a shrimp po boy and fries. He really liked his meal and I do agree his fries were really good.
We went for Restaurant Week which the menu was not a deal it actually seemed more expensive than off the regular menu.
We were a little skeptical when we first we're entering because a big boisterous party was pushing its way out. Then we had to change tables becuaseo of cold air blasting down on us. The menu provided lots of tasty choices. It was restaurant week and the waiter informed us of it and gave us the men. This was appreciated because that seldom happens without asking for information. We chose fried ribs and nachos. They were both quite good and big enough to be an entree. Their salads and soup were just as generous and good. We ordered a variety of entrees including fried chicken,the signature pork chop and etouffe. They were excellent and once again generous portions. No wonder this restaurant group keeps expanding. It was worth the drive from the northwest suburbs.
Great food and service was unbelievable! We went for restaurant week and the food and service could not have been better. Such a fun environment!
I had a horrible experience at Porkchop. We arrived ten minutes early and no one spoke to us for five minutes asking if we had reservations. I said we had a 815 reservation at 810 and she said they were not ready for us and to sit at the bar, which had no seats. There were also 6 tables open at this time.
We moved to the bar and seats opened up so we ordered drinks. Then we watched the time go by, at this point it was 830. There were now over ten people waiting and a group of loud drunk people bumping into me at the bar. My frustration grew further when I saw a lady who came in after us get seated.
I asked again, "Are we getting seated." The male waiter looked up and said to give him ten minutes. I must have given a bad look because then we were immediately seated.
Once we were seated it was a little better but still ran into a few problems. The dressing was wrong in my salad I ordered, we had our entrees before being asked if we wanted more drinks. The corn was overcooked and the ribs were hard and needed to be cut with a steak knife. The waited was nice and trying but they were obviously understaffed. Communication at the beginning about being understaffed would have been appreciated. We had our drinks comped, which was nice but would not go back here.
When we got there they
The service was terrible, we made a reservation but still waited nearly an hour for our table. They were under staffed. We waited an hour for our food once we'd ordered and it was cold and burnt!! They wouldn't change the burnt rids and we had to ask that they remove them from the bill. Really disappointed experience and no way would I recommend
