Whether you prefer pulled chicken, burnt ends, or St. Louis-style ribs, local pitmasters are serving up the best barbecue near Romeoville. Don’t forget to add on tasty sides when you order from the comfort of home. Here are three of the best eateries offering takeout near our Romeoville apartments.
1. Station One Smokehouse
What was once a firehouse is now a lively barbecue restaurant. At Station One Smokehouse, the pitmasters cook everything over wood. The founder, Brad, became passionate about barbecue while working at his family’s butcher shop. He later graduated from the Scottsdale Culinary Institute. Today, Brad enjoys bringing central Texas-style barbecue to Chicagoland. Offerings include chopped brisket, pork belly, and pork ribs. Enjoy with the creamy mac & cheese. Place an order for pickup Tuesday through Sunday.
2. Q BBQ
When a group of friends envisioned a modern barbecue joint, Q BBQ was born. It quickly became extremely popular, winning Michelin Guide awards for culinary excellence. At Q BBQ, the meats slow cook for up to 16 hours and are covered in house-made sauce. Choices include pulled chicken, brisket burnt ends, and Memphis baby back ribs. Q BBQ is open for daily pickup between 11:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m.
3. Baby Back Blues
Featured on Chicago’s Best, Baby Back Blues has been a local fixture since 1998. Owner Ken Faught believes that barbecue is best “when its powerful flavors combine and harmonize.” He started his professional career as an engineer, but after being laid off he decided to open a restaurant offering hearty portions at reasonable prices. Dishes include smoked hot links, beef brisket, and rib tips. Enjoy with green beans or corn on the cob. Order online for pickup or DoorDash delivery until 8:00 p.m. (9:00 on Fridays/Saturdays).
