What did we say about all these barbecue places opening up? Sure, El’s Kitchen in Lincoln Park isn’t going for the full blown Smokey Bears Barbecue route, but the new spot still has smoked ribs and brisket on the menu. The rest of the menu is filled up with bar and grill classics, including burgers, chopped salads, and onion rings. It just had its soft opening last week, and picked up a liquor license on Saturday. Check out the full menu below.
