Reviewed March 3, 2018

There are several places to eat in near the hotel we stayed at in Waukegan. We asked the hotel concierge where to eat and they recommended Big Ed's. When we pulled up we knew it was a good idea, you could smell the barbecue from outside. The customer service was great when ordering and at the bar. The food was excellent. The decor was very tasteful and the atmosphere was welcoming. We would visit this location again for sure.

This food was so good! The brisket sammich was out of this work and the big tony Mac and cheese was one of the best things I’ve ever had! Can’t wait to go back again.

Wonderful people. Their BBQ back ribs are the best I’ve had. So meaty and perfect smoke. The half-yardbird (chicken) will be the best you’ve had.

My husband surprised us with carry out from Big Ed’s. Everything was delicious but the overall favorite was the burnt ends. We will definitely be going back!

As a unadulterated BBQ snob that has sought out great BBQ all over the US and every country I've traveled to Big Ed' s has the best brisket I have eaten.
Great food, service and cocktails.
Don't look back!@
