It's been a while since we visited Barn. Still the best wings on the north side. If I am wrong, tell me where. Great bar atmosphere with tons of TVs for sport s . Plus, full audio for regular games. Lest I forget the great service.

My husband, teen and I visited Barn & Company on a sunny, unseasonably warm November afternoon and sat outdoors. Service was prompt, friendly and unassuming. We split 2 entrees across the 3 of us: a half-rack of ribs and barbecued brisket. The servings were generous and perfect for our smaller appetites. The ribs were meltingly rich and the brisket was...

Decent BBQ neighborhood joint. Good to watch sports in a lively atmosphere. Outdoor patio provides a nice setting in the summer.

The BBQ was great, as you'd expect given the other reviews. But this place had some hidden gems. One was our server, Dani L, who was so friendly and went out of her way to ensure we had a great meal. The next were the wings with different rubs, they were a revelation. You have got to try the mac... More

Longtime barn customer. Love the fire wings. Great beer selection. Met with the new owners today and learned of a modest overhaul. New chef coming in to spice up the dinner choices, but the great traditional meat choices won't change. Looking forward to seeing Barn go from good to great.

Can't say enough about this place. Beautiful patio, great service and even better food. Best wings my mom has ever had in her 59 years. You won't be disappointed, but must try wings, brisket and pulled pork. Spicy BBQ sauce at table is delish.

Barn and Company's menu regarding entrees or "smoked meats" is quite tight, you have your choice of beef brisket, baby back ribs, or a half chicken. There's three BBQ platter options, two of which are combinations of the smoked meat and various side dishes - brisket, pulled pork, and shrimp tacos are an addition. There's plenty of burgers and other... More

Stopped into this relatively new establishment and was pleasantly surprised to find that they had: (1) a friendly attentive staff - good service! (2) a good selection of beers and other libations (3) delicious wings (we ordered "fire" & "sweet habanero") (4) reasonable prices (5) a clean dining room and restroom (6) plenty of screens for viewing sports (7) a...

Four of us - two from Chicago and two from out of town - ate here. I think there is better BBQ in Chicago. Good points - table service and a bar. BBQ was only average, sweet potato fries were good, appetizers were good. Had a "bar" atmosphere. Probably a better place for "20-somethings" more interested in drinking/appetizers than dinner.
