It's Friday night...I don't want to leave the house...and I have a taste for some ribs. Found Rylon's Smokehouse through Grubhub. My cleaners is next door to the restaurant, but I've always been too busy to check it out. I ordered the St. Louis ribs with sides. The delivery guy was very nice and greeted me with a smile. The ribs were delicious! But I was more impressed with the presentation. The ribs came in a sturdy...fancy box. I said myself - "Wow! These ribs must be really special to come in a box like this." And they were! BBQ sauce was also very good. Perfect meal for my long work-week...and I didn't have to leave the house. Thank you Grubhub and Rylon's Smokehouse!

Was super hungry after I cancelled another Grubhub order because the restaurant had me change my order 3 times due to being out of stuff. Rylon's got me my food 30 mins early. They forgot my soda and the manager drove it to my house himself. The lobster mac & cheese was SO delicious, the fries are really good too. THANK YOU SO MUCH for a great experience. I was so impressed at how they handled the mistake, usually they just say "you can have a free one next time" etc. I put a little gin in my orange cream soda and now I'm quite the happy camper. Next time I order food it'll be from here again!

Really impressed all around. The meat on the ribs was super tender and great flavor. I would note the sauce has some kick, so if you don't like spicy, make sure you have your own. The beans are also one of the most unique things I've tasted in awhile, and absolutely delicious. We will definitely be back. Q and the other BBQ joints in the city had better watch out!

Pleasantly surprised. The rib tips were fresh and tasty, the mac and cheese was great. I was sceptical because I saw mixed reviews, however, I took a chance and the food was awesome. Goes to show you...can't always go by other people's experiences, because mines was great.

Hadn't ordered from here in about a month, honestly due to a previous order that had not been that great. But had a hankerin' for some rib tips and they did not disappoint. Also grabbed my favorite rum baked beans deliciousness. My faith in Rylons has been restored.

Chef Derek Rylon of Lincoln Parks Batter & Berries has brought his distinct barbecue style to Chicagos South Loop. Rylons Smokehouse is a 7-seat restaurant located at 67 E. Cermak road. Chef Rylons process is to pit-grill over wood first, then send the meat to the smoker. This reverse process from most smoked-style bbq restaurants will allow you taste flavor of the meat and not be overwhelmed by the smoke. This also combines the two styles of barbecue Chef Rylon grew up with: Pit-grilled bbq and smoke-style bbq in Chicago. "Everything On The South, West, and East sides is on the pit. Northside is smoked. Rylons is in the middle of everybody, so we are going to give you both pit and smoked. "Theres Also one thing you wont see a lot of on the menu at Rylons Smokehouse: sauce. "Its A Cover-up, " Rylon said. "' I Want People to taste the flavor of the meat. "
