I don't see what all the fuss is about. I was raised eating Harold's chicken and BBQ and there really is no different. Their chicken was tough and dry soaking in BBQ sauce, the coleslaw was average lacking real flavor tossing in a piece of doughy white bread to soak up the sloppy sauce didn't help.

I personally like Buffalo Joe's better, but hecky's is also good. Their sauce is especially good. But I thin Joe's overall is better. Plus Joe's has places for you to sit and the orders come out faster than Heckys

Whatever it is, it's good. (Even if it isn't so good for you.) No sit-down here to speak of, but lots of good barbecue sandwiches or otherwise, and some of the sides are very good as well. There's nothing fake about Hecky's - it's just good food without any fluff.

I never would imagined I would find a smoked BBQ restaurant I love more than Woody's on Lincoln Ave., but Hecky's comes pretty darn close. Actually they are very different, but oooohhh soooo gooood!

I love the ribs here. Their salads are excellent. Their BBQ sauce is quite excellent. They evoke the very best ribs I've had throughout the years. If I were to choose one ribs place to recommend, this would be it.

I've been living in Evanston for almost two years and I couldn't wait to get a taste of Hecky's World Famous BBQ and sauce. But after recently experiencing eating at this place, I have to say move over garbage and make room for Hecky's food to join you. I ordered the pricey Chicago style rib tips and it was a waste of money. They make better BBQ in a grocery store. There was no smoked or grilled taste what so ever. i wasted $30 in this joint, only to come away very disappointed. The hotlinks tasted dry and terrible, the chicken wings tough, and the rib tips fatty. My advice is avoid this place and try Buffalo Joe's instead. If you like eating overpriced garbage, then you'll love Hecky's.

Pros: Zilch

Cons: Lots

Let me start by saying I wanted it to be good, but I've had better BBQ at McDonalds. If this is close to Texas BBQ - I now have no reason to ever step foot in the Lone State, 'cause I thought this could be their one redeeming quality. Sorry - but it's just not good.

After moving here from Texas, I was missing all the good barbecue joints, but Hecky's definitely comes close in terms of quality food. The sauce is great, but you better like a lot of it because they pour it on! The portions are large and filling and although at first glance the prices look high, it is well worth the money. The ribs are so moist, they fall off the bones! The sides are delicious as well, especially the baked beans.

Pros: barbecue sauce, ribs, fast service

Cons: , french fries

.

honestly, the meat here is nothing special, but the sauce rules! Don't plan on eating here, there is no place to sit and your food comes in a bag--this is a strictly take-out joint. I don't agree that this is the best BBQ ever, but it is certainly the best in the Chicago area.

Pros: sauce, meat, wonder bread

Cons: fries

Great place to get a pull pork sandwich. Two disvantages are hard to park and no place to sit down eat. Beside that is the best place to get BBQ.

I have eaten BBQ ribs all across the world, including some of what are considered the best... Carsons, Porkys, and a little place in st lucia, But In a city renowned for its bbq, HECKYS, my childhood favorite, Reigns supreme... HANDS DOWN THE TASTIEST

Pros: Taste

This tiny little place is easy to just drive right by - but don't. Hecky's has the best ribs and best bb sauce in the entire city. It's just a tiny place, and you have to carry out the food - but it will have you coming back for more.

I've had ribs and rib tips in, New York, Florida, Texas, Oklahoma, Ohio, Nevada, Arizona, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Colorado, California, Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia,and Illinois and thIS are the BEST DARN BBQ YOU WILL EVER EAT! If your lucky you may even meet the man himself. One of the nicest people in business!

Hecky's is without a doubt the best ribs I have ever had. I live on the far end of St. Charles and I travel at least once a month down to hecky's for their rib tips. I have been going there for the past 5 years ever since I heard about it and there is no doubt that they are the best rib tips I have ever had. I have been to many ribplaces and I have been to many rib fest's and nothing compares to Hecky's. I have recommended it to a lot of my friends and even people that dont even like ribs or meat agree that Hecky's ribs are the best and they would eat there again.

Editorial from

In Short
It's all about the 'cue at this ketchup- and mustard-colored, matchbox-sized corner carryout joint. Some diners go medieval with the slathered turkey drumstick; those who prefer a leaner cut opt for the fall-off-the-boneā€¦
