To Sauce or Not to Sauce…

When most people think of really good barbeque, they don’t first think of Chicago. Our thoughts tend to go to the southern part of the country. This week on Check, Please! reviewer Zach Moore tells us you don’t have to make a road-trip for great barbeque. You can find it right here on the Gold Coast at Chicago q. But, our guests had mixed reviews of Chicago q, which ultimately came down to the sauce.

Starting off right!

The Downtown Family, and the Uptown Cafe

Throughout my life, I've occasionally been noticed for my quirky style, but never my expensive taste. I have always earned a look of disdain when, on receiving a compliment on an outfit, I've blurted proudly, “It's second-hand. Two bucks! And I sewed the top!” I admit, I think that good things don't have to cost a fortune.

Now, I have two kids under the age of three that I love to share meals with. However, I don't believe in bringing our kids along to fancy restaurants, because I feel that a $32 steak is a waste of money when served with a side of screaming.
