“kosher burgers”

Shaevitz Uptown BBQ
Ranked #54 of 113 Restaurants in Highland Park
Restaurant details
Reviewed August 6, 2017

There was a time when I was carefully working my way through the menu, but the truth is that I really love the Hickory Market Burger and now that's all I order. Why mess with perfection?

Eat in or carry out.

There are a few parking spaces in front on Central Avenue, and more parking around the corner.

What this place calls BBQ is nothing more than roaster brisket with bbq sauce on it! Never was near an smoker!

I had the brisket platter. It was tough, undercooked, and tasted like old meat. Which also explains why they smothered it in some generic tomatoey open pit style sauce. Clearly trying to cover up the bad taste. After scraping off the ridiculous amount of sauce, it revealed rainbows on the meat. Which also explained the old meat taste.

Don't waste your time or money.

Shaevitz is the best kosher butcher in the area, and their Uptown BBQ offers a good variety for kosher lunch and dinner. Recommend their skirt steak sandwich, corned beef, and soups.

We went here looking for the barbecue. Instead we ordered burgers and fries. It was a good choice. The burgers were flavorful and moist which is not something you can always say about kosher burgers.
