Pros: Good ribs and great beans

Thanks a lot Smoke Daddy, you delivered mediocre ribs (at best) at a price significantly higher than your website advertises. When I made the delivery phone order, they neglected to give me a price quote but did not forget to add $3 (a

Pros: Decent BBQ sauce

Cons: Terrible phone order customer service

I used to L-O-V-E this place and I don't care if service isn't great: what do you expect, this is a no frills place, straight forward and genuine as is its food. I just went back: spring is shyly creeping in, and I couldn't wait to sit

The Smoke Daddy is delicious. People need to be more understanding that the quality of the food, the service, and the atmosphere is totally dependable on whether or not they are busy. The beef brisket is my favorite! I love the

I love ribs and have made it a point to try numerous rib joints throughout Chicago. I would have to say that Smoke Daddy's ribs are by far the worst ribs I've had in this city let alone in my life. I'm not sure if it was because it was

Pros: Wish I had one

Cons: Overpriced, aweful food

When you walk into a restaurant at dinner time and don't see that many people eating there that tells me one thing. It isn't that great! It turned out to be the case with Smoke Daddy. I ordered their specialty baby back ribs which came

Pros: Parking...which also could be a con because w/ popular places there just isn't any

Cons: Parking...plenty of it

I wasn't going to write a review. Instead, I thought I'd go right to the source and let the restaurant owners/management know about their issues. Well, I wrote to the e-mail address they have listed on their site, but it bounced back as

Pros: My diet pop was cold

Cons: Horrible service, dirty, cold food, dry over-cooked meat

We went here on an early Saturday evening. We were seated promptly, as the place wasn't yet busy. Food was generally good BBQ, though I like my ribs a little meatier than what they served us here. The pulled-pork sandwich is tops, as are

Pros: BBQ, fries, price

Cons: Service was a little slow

I guess the reason why there are so many mixed reviews is because there bbq is always inconsistent. For example, one time i ordered a small order of rib tips and got way more food than i could handle and they were tasty (i even reminded

This place used to be great! Now that Division St. is so upscale, the portion size has changed (4 slices of brisket) in a non-descript bun for $8.50. A half of sandwich used to fill almost anyone up with a 1/2 sandwich to take home. The

Upon walking in, the walls are filled w/ wonderful pictures of all the Jazz and Blues greats. The air is filled w/ the thick aroma of "down home" Barbecue. Something that can definately be enjoyed w/ a crowd, or that special someone. You

I was depressed when I found out Brother Jimmy's, my BBQ mecca was going out of business. I searched high and low for quality BBQ, only to be sadly disappointed every time.
Until now. Smoke Daddy. Wow. Great Value (12 bucks for

Pros: Cheap, Cool atmosphere, Great food

A great place to relax and enjoy a good meal. The new patio is a real plus, and adds to the atmosphere. The neighborhood is not such a dive joint, many nice bars and restaurants are located in the area. I recommend everything on the menu,

Ribs were lean and meaty. Tender, but not wimpy that they fell off the bone. Fantastic BBQ and hot sauces. Good service. Avoid the "Chicken Dinner" It's just 4 dry breast filets with not much flavor, but that's what you get for

Great service, great atmosphere, mostly great food.
We had rib sampler, baby backs, chicken (overcooked and dry, according to one of our party, but she's from NYC, so what the hell does she know!?!), brisket, & pulled pork sandwich.
