    No fast food crap, or chain restaurant stuff. Harley, tattoos and BBQ. Heading to NRA (National Restaurant Show) for work.

    I've got a lot of buddies down in Chi-town and we ALWAYS go to eat at the Honky Tonk..they have won numerous BBQ awards, and smoke over all gas or electric.  They have awesome pulled pork, brisket, stuffed mushrooms name it, they smoke it.

    Here's there info:

    Honky Tonk BBQ - Chicago BBQ

    Being a member here you probably make better Q then you could fine anywhere in Chi-Town. So try an hook up with a member from here or try a different style of food. I do know That Mike Syman (Iron Chef) has his restaurant (Lola) in Chicago. Another good thing to do is ask the locals they will normally lead you to a good restaurants.
