Looking for old-school barbecue in Chicago? Just about any local you ask will steer you to this tavern, which opened in 1932 and operated as a speakeasy called Tante Lee Soft Drinks during Prohibition. The baby back ribs are slow-cooked for seven hours, then served with sauce in your preferred style: the sweet and spicy Prohibition, the tangy Zesty or Twin Anchors’ original mild sauce. Over the years the ribs have won many fans, including Frank Sinatra, who would have them shipped to him (with coleslaw) while he was on the road.
