Chicago's barbecue boom has entered Andersonville. Pork Shoppe, a blown-out version of the bustling Avondale spot, is now open on Clark Street, bringing with it old-timey cartoon murals on walls, barrels repurposed as light fixtures, and lots of 'cue, of course.
The larger space in the former home of Kingfisher is now broken into a 150-seat dining area and bar, a private room, and a 100-seat outdoor patio. The popular pork belly pastrami and St. Louis-style ribs are still on the menu, in addition to Nashville hot fried chicken and pickles, beef tri tip, and much more. Wash down your meat and sides with local craft brews on tap, a decent bourbon selection, and tidy cocktail and wine lists. Check out the full menus below; lunch and dinner are served daily and brunch is in the works.
