Not sure you can call a restaurant an outdoor secret when the following us true:
It has nearly zero patio, with zero view or ambiance. Other than two parking lots and a gas station.
It hasn't even been open long enough to have had said patio open for a summer. This article is clearly fluff, perhaps paid for.
I mean no disrespect to the place, it looks good actually, but if this publication is to help give advice to people wanting to go have a good "Time Out", they should be more genuine with their content. It isn't fair to the reader, or to other establishments otherwise.
They should better review things that are actually fitting. This place can not be, and us not a best kept Chicago secret; at the time of writing it hasn't even been open for a patio season yet.
That said, it does have delicious meat.
Patio: really nothing remotely noteworthy.
Go for the food if you are nearby, not for the outdoors experience as this article touts.
