So good. Russell's has been around forever...and for a reason! Best BBQ chicken and pulled pork sandwich around. Be sure to bring home a bottle of their legendary homemade BBQ sauce too!

Good food, but whatever you do, don't drink the Franzia "box" wine or the tap beer. Wine tastes terrible, like it's very old or stale and the beer is awful, tapper needs to be cleaned.

My grand parents went on their first date to Russell's, has been a family tradition for 75 years. A must try if in the area. This is not southern style bbq, it is straight up Chicago. Get the beef, and the ribs are awesome. Love the Lil rolls too. Anyone giving a bad review doesn't understand.

There is no other sauce like it ... The ribs are grilled perfectly .. I load my fries in the sauce an the bun that comes with ribs are so soft . THE SOUP is always amazing doest matter which one you get. Yummy onion rings . They have bar in the back an slots .
