Soooo, the other day my friend and I had quite the Chicago food adventure. First we paid our second visit to Smoque BBQ and then it was on to Mac-n-Cheese Pizza over at Ian’s Pizza. But of course I’ve already posted about Ian’s so now it’s all about Smoque BBQ in Chicago’s Irving Park neighborhood. Located at 3800 N. Pulaski Road, Smoque has been featured on tons of Chicago media outlets and even Diners Drive-in’s and Dives on Food Network.
When you’re walking up to Smoque, you can already smell the smokey goodness and when you get inside, it’s even better. It’s totally no frills, you look up at a huge menu written in chalk, order up at the register, and then take a seat at one of the packed tables.
I ordered the Sliced Brisket Platter which comes with cole slaw and two sides (mac-n-cheese and fries) for $10.45. My friend ordered the Sliced Brisket Platter and cole slaw with peach cobbler and cornbread for $10.45. He also ordered an extra ‘taste’ of pulled pork for an additional $3.00.
I definitely recommend that everyone check out Smoque as soon as possible because you wont be disappointed. The brisket was so tender and flavorful and their BBQ sauce isn’t your typical mass produced sauce. Smoque is open every day of the week except for Mondays but definitely check out Smoque’s website for a menu and more!
