It’s not very often you get BBQ that you would consider life changing. In fact, chances are that if you go to a BBQ place around McHenry County that it will be nothing short of lackluster. I’m looking at you Famous Dave’s, that’s right I’m calling you out punk. Come at me Bro. Anyways i digress, earlier today my Dad and I went to this hot little spot in the square. It is aptly named BBQ king because when it comes to the food, it not only sets the bar very high but should be considered Royalty.
First Impression: I wish I could put this into words but walking into this place you get the honor of being hit with an odor that I can only describe as the smell of Meat and Smoke and if it was a cologne I would wear the shit out of it.
Service: Incredibly friendly
Food: Ok here is where the high marks come in. I don’t think I have a single bad thing to say about the food here. Actually I do, my only complaint is that I want more of it right now, this food is the equivalent of Crack. Don’t believe me just take a look at this Brisket Sandwich
The meat was Melt-In-Your-Mouth Tender and easily ranks in the top 1-2 in terms of Brisket that I’ve had. It’s that good. How can you make that better? Well make it into a Philly Cheesesteak of course.
Oh Come on. Just look at that, can you just look at it. In terms of beauty it doesn’t get much better than that. And the taste? It tastes even better than it looks. An absolute must try sandwich, it combines the beauty of a brisket sandwich with the amazing ness of a Philly Cheesesteak. Where could you go wrong with that? Let’s not forget the side game of this place is on Fleek as well.
Are you getting hungry yet? This places gets a 10/10 from me and I don’t know why I don’t go here more often. It’s that good. Don’t believe me? Why don’t you try it for yourself. They have locations in Woodstock and Huntley. If you live in the area and haven’t been here yet, shame on you because it is among the best BBQ I’ve ever eaten and I’m gonna straight up just say it. It’s the best BBQ in McHenry County.
P.S if the people who run this Diamond are reading this, Let’s make BBQ King the official BBQ Restaurant of the Warming Home. Let’s make it happen
