While I found the beef ribs to be quite tasty, the rest of our meals were not tasty at all. The cornbread was oily, but the dinner roll was dense and unpalatable as if the dough had not risen but been baked anyway. The onion rings weren't really ringed, either, as they were deep fried into a big brick and had no seasoning; the "sauce" served with them resembled BBQ sauce in appearance but was thin and flavorless. Thankfully, we had just a half order, which was quite large but went mostly uneaten due to it's lack of appeal. The beans were delicious but probably came from a can, as the cook there didn't seem to be able to make anything with good flavor. The cole slaw was crisp but arrived at the table warm and, as with other dishes, had no discernible flavor. Although there were only two of us in the restaurant at the time, it took a very long time for our food to reach us, and then it came in piecemeal fashion--my husband's cornbread was delivered first; after 10 minutes my dinner roll was brought out; another 5-7 minutes went by and the onion block came to the table. My husband ordered the rib and pasta combo plate; his ribs, cole slaw, and macaroni and cheese came on one plate together but the accompanying fettucini alfredo was delivered quite a bit later on its separate plate. Altogether, this place was not one that we expect to return to or recommend. Robert Irvine's Restaurant Impossible program would have a good candidate in Chicago Ribs for improving the decor, the food, and the overall service. We were only glad that we had a Groupon deal where we had paid just $15 for $40 worth of food; for the $23 we paid with tax and tip, the meals were adequate but not good enough.
