Chicago >Robinson's #1 Ribs
“This restaurant has great food also has a fun, relaxed atmosphere.”
“Robinsons is a great choice of where to go for good homestyle food - bbq, ribs, beef, chicken, even their desserts are very good with a good choice of pies by the slice.”
“The sauce in BBQ is like Ketchup on fries if its good enough you don't need it.”
“There are some good barbecue places in the city, but this is one of the only places that devotes nearly its entire menu to barbecue.”
“Robinsons disappointed this ribs lover with its terrible service, sludge-like barbecue sauce that tasted like peppered catsup more than anything else, and ribs that felt like they were stored since 2000 when this restauarnt won citysearch's best ribs awar”
“this place is BYOB which is good if you are looking for a cheap night out.”
“BBQ is about smoke, slow and low.”
We walked in 20 minutes before closing and had very pleasant service and great food. We were welcomed to stay after closing for however long we wanted, and did. BYOB is a plus. I'm glad its a block away from my friend's apartment, cause I'll go back.
I like this Robinsons. I live near by so I go here occasionally. I've always had good food. I ordered a burger and fries a few weeks ago and it was fantastic. For the amount of food they give you, it's a reasonable price. The service is pretty fast and there is good food. What else is there to say? It's a rib joint people, it's not a Rick Bayless restaurant, give them a break.
Home recipe for the bbq sauce. Ribs and fries is the way to go. I get a bottle or two of the sauce to go every time :) finger licking good.
I live very close and go quite often. Last night, I got the BBQ grilled salmon sandwich wiith fries- very tasty. My boyfriend got the pulled pork sandwich with fries and ate every last bite. Our waiter was super friendly and we never had to ask for anything. It is BYOB, they have a nice patio in the back, and carry out is efficient. In terms of BBQ spots in the city, Smoque is amazing but they have long lines and I feel rushed to get out of there. Robinson's is more laid back and almost as tasty.
This is the place to go if you want great barbecued ribs or chicken. Their barbecue sauce is stupendous!
I had the Brisket Sandwich, Mac and Cheese and the Cole Slaw. Loved it all and want to try more off their menu!
Best BBQ in town. Something for everyone on their menu. Even the vegetarian items. Try it- You'll like it we do!!
Great BBQ! Robs, chicken, brisket. Had catering pkgs delivered. Everybody loved it!
They had me at Ribs! The ribs are great and the mac & cheese is the perfect side!
