Starting the most important thing - and the only thing that matters for some. The food was excellent. But it went downhill from there. First, why does a BBQ menu list half the entrees as "market price." Not sure if they think listing prices is beneath them or if they felt that we'd suffer sticker shock, but it's not like they're serving Maine Lobster. Second, four of us were sitting outside and we unexpectedly had a 5th person join us after we were seated. Neither the waitress nor the manager were remotely helpful in helping us accommodate the 5th person. Ultimately, with the help of some very friendly people sitting at the next table, we came up with a fix, but no thanks to the staff. Finally, I recognize that there are very few BYOB places in Chicago, but when I bring a bottle of wine and am willing to pay a corkage fee (and even brought my own bottle opener), I was less than happy to be told I couldn't. There are so many good restaurants in Chicago that do BBQ (Smoque or Q on Dearborn for example) that I won't be going back here.
