The basics: In terms of hallowed old-school classics, Honey 1 BBQ is to barbecue as Gene & Georgetti is to filet mignon. Helmed by Robert Adams, himself a local icon for his timeworn recipes and innovations with his glass-walled aquarium smoker, which cooks rib tips, chicken, and pulled pork to smoky perfection over a wood fire. By entombing his meat in smoke, over a crackling flame, each plate comes out reliably succulent and fragrant, doled out on trays at this frills-free counter-service staple in Bronzeville.
What the experts say: “It’s old-school Chicago barbecue, and they’ve held true to it,” says Sorkin, citing his love for the venerable Southside institution, and for Adams. “Even as barbecue has changed around them, they’ve clung to what they do, and it’s timeless.”
How to book: Dine at the restaurant on a first come, first served basis, or place a carryout order by calling Honey 1 at (773) 285-9455.
