If you are a fan of ribs Hillery's is the place to go! The meat is juicy, tender and flavorful...and the prices are half bad either! If in the area give it a go...

The atmosphere is incredible, the staff is extremely friendly, its like coming home to momma's kitchen. You get amazing food for incredible prices, the trip is well worth it. My grandfather from backwoods Tupelo Mississippi LOVES going to Hillery's just because of the atmosphere, not to mention the incredible rib tips! And the fried okra, don't even ask him, he'll go on for hours! If you do nothing else, try the BBQ chicken. My father swears by it. Love that place!

Pros: Service, Sauce, Sass!

Cons: There's only so many foods you can BBQ

Hillery's is the very best in ribs. We no longer live nearby and don't get to eat there as often as we used to. I love their hot rib tips, but they are HOT. We always get our order to go as there is only outside seating, unless you want to really sweat inside.

Look past the building itself and indulge in some wonderful barbecue.

I used to live near Hillery's and fell in LOVE with the BBQ!!! I now live in New York City, and have yet to find BBQ that even comes close to Hillery's!! If you love rich, tangy sauce and tender slow cooked meat then you MUST get to Hillery's once in your lifetime!! Everytime I go back to North Chicago to visit, I don't leave without getting my "large rib tip with extra sauce"!! Truly one of my favorite places to eat in the US!! I can't wait to move back so I can have this fabulous BBQ whenever I want!! Thanks Hillery's!!

Man if you like ribs Hillery's is the place to go. The hot and mild bbq sauce is to die for. If you like spicy go spicy if you like mild you are still going to get spicy. The bbq sauce has that much kick! The ribs are slow cooked over charcoal like it should be. They are not oven baked because real ribs should be over charcoal. They do not have a dine in option so everything is to go. Their coleslaw is awesome but it is the soft white Wonder bread and golden deep fried fries that are to die for. You can also get fried fish but it is the ribs that they are famous for. Use a big and get plenty of wet napkins before you eat!

Being a true BBQ lover, and having traveled all over the country in search of great BBQ, naturally I had to try one of the local BBQ chains located by me here in Lake County, IL.

Although the sweet scent of a hickory smoker permeates the air for a square block (which is usually a sign of good BBQ), unfortunately my visits have each met with the same results; this is not very good Q.

The food lacks the care and quality of any great southern BBQ joint, entries are served up in greasy fat saturated pools of BBQ sauce, in an attempt to cover up the cheep fatty cuts of meat.

Hillery's supposedly specializes in rib tips and spare ribs, both of which lack any kind of BBQ bark or smoky flavor which gets lost in the greasy crock pot results of what actually gets served anyway.

Use Hillery's for a party or for family dinner. They put together a great package. Home made sauce and plenty of food on the menu.
