Lem's Bar B Q
South Side

As the best barbecue joints on the South Side do, Lem’s requires that you order through bulletproof glass and then take your ribs elsewhere to be devoured (it’s takeout only). But it would take much more than that to scare away devotees of these spareribs and rib tips, which have a thin, vinegary sauce heavy with spice and charred outer edges that hide pink, juicy pork. Honestly, the only truly scary thing here is arriving to find the line snaking out the door.
