    New BBQ Restaurant in Chicago Area

    Mel's Craft BBQ in Park Ridge, IL just got a great Review in today's Chicago Tribune. Anyone been there yet?

    Here is a link to the review:


    Face lift I see'


      BBQ joints put Texas style BBQ to draw customers, some add Craft BBQ raise prices.


        I haven’t been there yet. It opened a few months ago and friends of mine have been there. Heard nothing but good things. Definitely looking forward to trying it. The more restaurants in downtown Park Ridge the better.


          I don't know about BBQ but there is great Pizza in Chicago. I assume BBQ too.


            Can't see the article.....Chicago Tribune makes you subscribe....sorry not going to happen.

                I see they advertise their pork as Kilgus Farms Berkshire pork -- never heard of them but they are apparently from downstate and retail in the Chicago area, any familiarity with them.

                I used to live by their turkey supplier, Ho-Ka.
