    Chicago tomorrow: Willie's Rib shack?

    Last time in Chi-town went to Smoque and it was perfectly fine. Brisket almost as good as mine and ribs excellent... thought I'd try the rib shack ("best backs in Chicago") ---I have that shirt from the bbq shirt of the month club... any comments on the joint or suggestions?

    You could crash Meathead 's house in the suburbs


      Fat Willie's Rib Shack is okay. Not anything like my favorite.

      Meathead has an exhaustive list of Chicago BBQ joints (not 100%, but very very solid).

      Meathead's favorites are highlighted. I have no arguments, but do like BBQ Supply Company, though they have abandoned their Rogers Park (very north) location in favor of a Hyde Park (moderately south) location. I didn't realize same folks are behind the Budlong which I enjoy.
