Rib tips served up just like back home. Great smokey flavor and some sweet sauce. All that was missing was the slice of wonder white bread. I have eaten at many small BBQ joints back on the south side and Toms tips are spot on. Make sure you order the hot sauce on your tips.

I've been to the Windy City many times, and I still can't quite figure out what Chicago-style barbeque means. There are MANY Chicago transplants in the Sunny City, and I think this is just advertising, because it tastes like regular old barbeque to me, although a bit oversmoked in my opinion.
Tom's is near my house, so I have been there often, spoken to the owners, tried most things on their menu. I love the fact that they have side salads, which many BBQ places don't have. They said they tried creating a low-carb sauce, but people didn't like it, and it spoiled before it was used up.
Now that there are more choices in barbeque, I drive for my meals rather than revisit Tom's. These days, I think both Chicago Tom's and the Chicago Cubs are both overrated.
