The extensive menu of solidly executed barbecue standards here features names—Beat Cop Basket, Top Brass St. Louis Ribs—that allude to owner Kurrin Beamon’s day job as a Chicago police officer. Try the tender rib tips as well as the brisket, which is shredded rather than sliced (all the better to hold the smoky-sweet house sauce in which it’s tossed) and served up on a fresh brioche bun. Too often mac and cheese is brought down by blandness, but the version here is super flavorful, with a sharp cheddar tang and just a hint of heat that comes courtesy of finely minced chilies.

The food is absolutely delicious. It's so good that we drive from Lake County, Illinois to just to get it. When it comes to bbq, if it's not 19 Paul, my family doesn't want it.
