Parkside Pub in Huntley has the best finger licking ribs and only 16.00 for a full slab!

As long as someone mentioned Marengo, so will I. Joe's Place has outstanding ribs with a secret sauce. Huge slabs and great homemade fries. Dip those fries into the sauce and you have gone to paradise.

East Side Joeys in Algonquin!!!
Luka Brat Z April 28, 2012 at 07:49 PM

Luka Brat Z April 28, 2012 at 07:50 PM
Texan hot bbq sauce is awesome! But the place is such a dump! and it's so over priced

"dump" is part of their character. SOme of the best food I've ever had has been in hidden away "dumps"
Bob May 01, 2012 at 01:15 PM
How can you even consider a corporate chain for "best of McHenry County"?
Tami S. May 01, 2012 at 02:41 PM
Chris Coach House!

The Texan !
Luka Brat Z May 02, 2012 at 02:59 AM
Maybe if we were voting on the places that put the most salt in their food, but ribs-NO WAY!
