Rub’s Backcountry Smokehouse, Chicago

I had lunch today at Rub’s Backcountry Smokehouse on Western Avenue in Chicago. It was quite good, although not as good as my two favorite bbq places in Chicago, Smoque and Fat Willy's, although it is much more convenient to where I live.

There were three of us for lunch. We ordered the pork tacos, pulled pork sandwich and the pulled pork platter with a sampler of three ribs. The sides for the pork meals were coleslaw and home made barbecue kettle chips.

This is a picture of the three meals.




This is a close-up of the pork platter and ribs.

    Nice post.
    The ribs look a little on the dry side. Were they?

    They were a little dry. The sauces were pretty good, although there was a chipotle citrus sauce I really didn't like. I liked the Carolina mustard sauce the best.

    Looking pretty good, meaty ribs, too bad a little dry. What were the different costs of each?

    I believe it was $5 for the three ribs, and about $8 for the other meals. One of our party picked up the check so I didn't actually look at it.

    Just as an aside, I've enjoyed the food at R.U.B. Real Urban Barbecue in Highland Park quite a bit recently. You can get mini-sandwiches for $3 each, or 3 for $8, and I've had the pulled pork and brisket, and one time the burnt ends, which I wasn't crazy about. The others were really good. They offer a lot of sides. I generally go with the mashed potatoes and cole slaw. In general I enjoy it more than the one in Chicago.
