I ordered the mexican chicken breast sandwich. There were bones in the chicken and I choked on one of them. When I spoke to the manager, he did not believe me until I produced one of the bones. He did not seem very concerned but...More

Ravinia BBQ was a wonderful neighborhood restaurant that was forced to close by its new landlord . What a stupid move as the prime location now sits dark and produces no rent. Hope the owner finds a new location.

Nice neighborhood place. Close to Ravinia park. Many people get takeout from here before going there. Decor/service were nothing special. BBQ chicken, though, was delicious with a nice bite. Ribs were just ok. Mrs had a immense plate of pasta, easily enough for two people....More

I wasn't impressed at all. We ordered the beef ribs and they were mostly fat and not much meat, which was really frustrating since they were HUGE. We ordered some bbq chicken too and I'm not sure if we got the right thing because the...More
