    We got there for our reservation, I got confirmation by 2 sources and I got there and they said they are not honoring my reservation. This is the 3rd horrible experience there.

    We have come here several times before and have never had service and food as bad as our recent experience. We informed our waitress that we needed to eliminate onions from one item and tomatoes from a sandwich due to allergies and she said she’d go ask and never came back. Our food came out with red onions on the salad and tomatoes on the sandwich. My husband found hair in his food and when we brought it to the attention of staff, the woman replied: “OK” and picked up the plate and walked away. My husband got up and went and asked for the check and overheard her saying to the staff “nobody even works back here with black hair”. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m black or she was in a bad mood but we didn’t appreciate her insinuating that I put my “black hair” in my husband’s $13 sandwich. How on earth does that benefit us? So unprofessional. We asked for the check, paid full price for everything and left. No apology or offer to right the situation. Honestly, $13 wasn’t worth putting up a fight about on such a beautiful day. We will NEVER be back. If you are black, have black hair or simply would like to be treated kindly, pick another BBQ spot in Chicago. There are 1000’s

    Ribs and pulled pork were very good, but the brisket was horrible and mushy like it had been sitting in a tub of water for 3 days. Sangria was amazingly good with a lot of fruit in it. Had to ask for napkins and silverware multiple times, we received two appetizers, and the 6 of us ate them straight out of the shared baskets with no napkins or silverware until I went up to the bar and took some from the waitress stand myself. Overall it was good and we will likely go back and give it another try, without the brisket!

    Food was average. Wish they would have advertised the cornbread as Jalapeño cornbread instead of just “cornbread”. All 3 meals were pretty flavorless and they were out of several options even though it was early in the evening.

    Brought a work group from out of town and the place worked out well. We had a group of 10, beer orders were in fast, waitresses worked well together, and it was a pleasant experience. Food was quite good, the buffalo chicken rolls were a good app and the dinner menu was tasty. Good portions. Beer menu had plenty of options, local and from further away. Our waitress worked quite hard.

    The food was good and the waitress was helpful. The outdoor patio is a good space to spend time outdoors with family/friends. The only hiccups were the the bartender was also acting as host to check people in and that took some time, even with reservations. Also, the kitchen accidentally put the wrong kid of fries on each plate, but we just swapped them on our own plates. Not a big deal for us.

    Had to wait 15 minutes in a line of people with reservations to be seated. Saw multiple Rats running around in the patio area. Until they take down COVID restrictions here you should go elsewhere. They seem really short staffed and dysfunctional at the moment.

    Food was okay. Corn bread is very dry and crumbles when bitten into. The ‘baked beans’ are a soupy texture which I wasn’t a fan of, but some people may be into it. Overall, would go for a drink here but the food was meh.

    They ran out of chicken, pork, and brisket by 6:30 pm. The outdoor garden was still situated for outdoor dining and the plastic covering looked horrendous. This place must have been hit hard during the pandemic because it took a 180 compared to pre covid. Very disappointed.

    We squeezed in last minute at Sheffield's for some appetizers & drinks. The drinks were good but service was the slowest I've ever experienced. I'm guessing staff was limited due to the pandemic, but on a Saturday evening after a Cubs game I expected more staff to be buzzing around.

    Food was alright, however service was poor. We were seated and waters were immediately served, however that was the last time our waiter came over to us on his own. We flagged him down to order drinks, had to flag him down to order food, and had to flag him down for the check. It was a bummer because I did enjoy the atmosphere!
