Celebrated a birthday here and was our best meal on a four week trip around the US. Great service, great atmosphere and great food. Do yourself a favour and make sure you visit when in Chicago.

The place is magical! the food is amazing, and the staff is so friendly. I really enjoyed eating ribs, "keep em coming!" as Sinatra would say. There's a mystical/historic vibe that is only found there. Try all three the ribs sauces, all so delicious!

Managed to get a table here post Chicago marathon, best ribs in the city - all went down a treat with a complimentary cocktail for finishing the race! Lovely.

Fall off the bone St. Louis style ribs with three sauce choices. Good beer selection. Friendly and efficient service. Felt lucky to get a seat at the bar. Wish this place was near me - could envision hanging out here often.

Really amazing food, in a lively atmosphere, with solid service. We had a group of six on a Friday night, and we were accommodated nicely. I ordered the half-rack of ribs, and two of my friends were hungry, so they ordered the full rack, but...More

Twin Anchors is a little off the beaten track in the Old Town neighborhood on Sedgwick in a residential area. But if you are looking for a neighborhood haunt and local favorite this is the place. According to their website, they are one of the...More

You will probably have a 30-40 minute wait if you arrive around 6:00. If you wait until 7:00 it would most likely be higher, especially on Friday or Saturday night. If you can grab seats at the bar it makes the wait easier... More
