Chicago's Best BBQ @ Honky Tonk

Honky Tonk BBQ
1213 West 18th Street

Try it: All of it!

Ted/Brittney's take: 

Britt: Being a vegetarian most would think BBQ would be my nightmare but not at Honky Tonk. At Honky Tonk they are something for everyone.  Chef whipped me up their portobella sandwich with fried green tomatoes and a homemade spread.  It was out of this world.  They also have a number of delicious sides to choose from.  It reminded me of my southern roots with black eyed peas, candied yams, mac and cheese, and sweet corn bread.  Not only is the food great but it is also about the experience. At Honky Tonk they have live music every night! So get grab some grub, throw on a cowboy hat, and dance the night away.  Oh, and be careful when you walk into the men's bathroom.  I will let Ted tell you about that.....

Ted's take: 
Clowns!! The bathroom is full of clown paintings!! Yikes!  That, however, is the only negative thing I have to say about this joint.  Willie loves barbecue and it shows with each dish.  I'll admit that I tried Britt's veggie sandwich and loved it!
But, c'mon.. this is BBQ and I'm all about the meat!  I mean, they took third place in Memphis in May for their pulled pork... should've been first in my opinion!  The ribs rock, the brisket is killer and the CANDIED BACON is out of this world!  Add a great bar, ambiance and live music and we have a winner!!!!
