Barbecuing is a distinctly American art form, much like listening to jazz music and feigning an understanding of jazz music. Celebrate patriotic cuisine with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of barbecue ribs and hot sandwiches at Nick's Barbecue. Choose from the following five locations: Burbank, Homer Glen, Palos Heights, Romeoville, or Tinley Park.
In business for 25 years and renowned for its slow-cooked barbecue ribs, the family-owned Nick's Barbecue maintains a culinary stable of more than 100 equally tempting items on its menu. Fall-off-the-bone barbecue baby back ribs cover fingers in a sweet signature sauce, dinner’s perfect complement to stylish sauce-colored outfits ($10.99). The barbecue pulled pork ($7.59) and half-chicken dinner ($7.45) team up tender white meats with three down-home sides, including mac ‘n’ cheese, potato wedges, barbecue baked beans, or mixed veggies. Two items that are as authentically Chicago as a silver bean riding the L train—the italian beef sandwich ($4.69) and the vienna all-beef hot dog ($2.15)—do their city proud as they tame the windiest of appetites.
Nick's Barbecue serves up its classic fare in a comfortable, no-frills atmosphere, where counter service translates to quick and easy dining in one of Nick's comfy booths or at home surrounded by a prized phone-booth collection.
