Where You Can Find Chicago’s Best Barbecue

Barbecue ribs with fries slaw and beer

The best barbecue restaurants near Catalyst Apartments know a thing or two about preparing flavorful, tender meat. Satisfy your appetite for delicious barbecue by ordering curbside pickup or delivery to our Chicago apartments. 

Green Street Smoked Meats 

This West Loop favorite for Texas-style barbecue smokes high-quality meats overnight, according to traditional methods. This slow process results in an extraordinary texture and flavor, including pork ribs that literally fall off the bone. Brisket is one of the signature dishes on the menu, and it comes with the outer bark and pink smoke ring you can expect from a well-smoked cut of meat. Round out your meal at Green Street Smoked Meats with tasty side dishes like the famously moist cornbread. You can order online for pickup or get home delivery using the Caviar app. 

County BBQ 

The hickory-smoked delicacies at County BBQ take inspiration from barbecue dishes all around the country. Enjoy St. Louis-style spare ribs, Texan brisket, or Kansas City burnt ends. What they all have in common is a delicious tenderness and smoky flavor. Add on the popular 3 Sides Combo, and you can also tuck into flavorful side dishes that are anything but an afterthought. Try garlicky French fries or the nutty blackened cauliflower. Order your barbecue online for pickup or get home delivery with GrubHub and Door Dash. 

Ella’s BBQ 

This relatively new addition to Chicago’s barbecue scene has already earned a very loyal following. Ella’s BBQ has an inventive menu that features cherry wood-smoked meats and five delicious sauces. Enjoy a gourmet twist on classic barbecue flavors, like the pulled pork poutine or brisket breakfast tacos, which are available on their brunch menu. You can also enjoy traditional barbecue favorites like baby back ribs with a side of mac n’ cheese. You can make a pickup order from Ella’s BBQ online or get home delivery with GrubHub, Door Dash, or Uber Eats.
