I don't know if anyone would be unhappy eating at the patio! There is something for everyone! We had a very large group and they were able to accommodate us with quick service. Everything that was ordered was delicious! Recommend the pork barbecue sandwich and sweet potato waffle fries.

The Patio always has space, always has quick and great service, and always has amazing food ready to eat. They have a large selection of food but I enjoy their ribs and pulled pork more than anything else. Great for a quick lunch or dinner or to bring the whole family, sports team, or friends.

Good food, quick service. It has been around for a long time & that's the reason. Extensive menu. Everyone in our party had something different, so we had a nice selection.

The food at this restaurant is incredible. If you're in the mood for hamburgers, ribs, chicken or even a bowl of chili. Everything taste amazing. If it's a date night with your spouse or dinner with the family this place caters to all. Next time your in Lombard give it a try, I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

We have been to this restaurant at least 20 times and usually have been happy but not this time. We thought we would treat ourselves to Ribs. We ordered and we received the worst Ribs ever! At almost 20 bucks for a full slab it was a total rip off. The Ribs were prepared incorrectly as you had to try... More

They have burgers, beef sandwiches, pasta, salad, chicken, fish. We have tried many different items and all are delicious. Make sure you get the soup. Usually 3 different kinds to choose... More

They are testimony to the growing popularity of barbecue in the Chicago area. If you've had barbecue in Kansas City or Memphis or St. Louis or Austin or the... More
