In 1982, when the Chicago Rib Shack was launched, most people said that we were nuts to open a BBQ restaurant. But since we opened, dozens if not scores of restaurants have copied our style, our menu and tried to copy our recipes. But there’s more to BBQ food than just pouring a little ketchup and Tabasco on meat and grilling it. All of our recipes are the genuine, authentic article that we have experienced in America. And just as our food ideas and our expertise come from the USA, so does our commitment to guaranteed freshness and quality, as well as excellent service."
These are the inspirational words of our founder Bob Payton and we continue to strive to fulfil his ambition.
So, what we do at the Chicago Rib Shack, is to make good food for you. Great burgers, amazing ribs and succulent chicken is what to expect. Wash it all down with a feel good shake or a refreshing Homemade Lemonade and you will be satisfied all day long, or until you come back tomorrow for the same again.
