Beer and Barbeque? what could be better? Sheffield’ s barbeque restaurant is the place in Chicago for great BBQ food. The smoker’s are smokin’, the brisket is basting and the bar is groaning under sundry succulent slabs of ribs. Our smokers are churning out the most succulent BBQ pork this side of Memphis. What is that you say, you were sleeping through the last couple years and didn’ t realize that Sheffield’s is now a barbeque restaurant-as well as the bar and beer garden it always has been? That you could head on over, and dine on fine BBQ Food while ensconced in nature in our beer garden with a fine American craft brew in hand ?
Well, you got some catching up to do… Stop on by and grab a table in the beer garden(or by the fire if it happens to be Chicago’s second season – Winter) and dig in. We’ve got ribs and chicken, pulled pork and sausage and our brisket simply must be tried to be believed. But don’t take our word for it, come on out and see for yourself. We’ve got all the barbeque basics-chicken, ribs, pork and brisket-with the requisite sides: Mac’ n Cheese, greens, baked beans, etc. And you can score a salad or an appetizer if that’s more what you had in mind.
