Honey 1 BBQ (Honey One BBQ)

We have been going here for years, sometimes weekly. The rib tips are awesome 95% of the time. Sometimes, due to the meat they get, they can be a little chewier. The fries are nothing to remember, and sorry to the haters but soggy white bread slapped on top IS traditional. The fried wings are tremendous about 95% of the time. We don't bother with anything much else on the menu, we think ribs everywhere are overrated and overpriced to begin with. Friendly staff, cute restaurant, family owned and run and the sauce is to die for: unique, consistent, just spicy enough. This food is not trendy - it's traditional African-American Chicago bbq. And one of the only ones around here of this type - kind of old school traditional. But I need that in my life lol.

Had a rib tip/link combo to feed 2/3 people supposedly? Ok if the two hungry diners like 2 slices of flabby white bread squashed on top of their dinner? Like dry rib tips and are full after about 10 soggy fries each? Is yes go there if no avoid it. Also no evidence of the promised coleslaw perhaps just as well after reading other reviews.

Very friendly place, everybody's always welcome. Wonderful sauce, too.

This place is usually a miss on their rib tips. They're advertised as smoky, juicy pork with some real meatiness and while they are smokey and flavorful, they're also dry at times. Yeah they're chewy alright and I mean jerky chewy to the point that you stop eating them because it reminds you of eating your own belt. Maybe that's the way they eat them in Arkansas, but somehow I don't think so or maybe it's because they are reheated leftovers from 1 or 2 days ago...hmmm? Well, I hope not. Tried their links, but they're not anything to write home about either. I'm afraid to try their ribs or the pulled-pork. I think Mr. Adams (owner) needs to rethink this one or learn about quality control...hello!

Great rib's and rib tips with the perfect hint of smoke. SOme of the best in Chicago if not the best when they are on.

Slow service, dried-out meat. I don't get it. Why do people rave about this place? The ribs at the new Smoque are much better and Bar-B-Que Bob's is better than either.

Honey 1 has amazing ribs and excellent sauce. Their hot links are also very, very good with the right amount of zip. My only (small) complaint is that the pulled pork sandwich, while delicious, is tiny and seems overpriced at 8 bucks. Overall, this is the best BBQ I've had in Chicago and I HIGHLY recommend it.
