Instead of the South Side tradition of cash ’n’ carry barbecue, this comfy no-frills spot has earned loyalists with smoky ’cue, a solid beer and wine list and a house cocktail called the Hogarita (think cran-citrus margarita). For starters, go for the smoky, greasy rib tips and insanely rich mac and cheese. Move past salads to a slab of baby backs and the beef brisket sandwich with horseradish. End the night with a cask ale or Scotch at the adjacent sister restaurant, Owen & Engine.
