Our family just had dinner at Belly Up on Wabash/near Roosevelt. 1132 S Wabash. This is their second day open. We really enjoyed the bbq Platter & the creative cocktails. The space is quite large with a bar towards the rear of space. BBQ is just what S.Loop needs! We'll be back.
We've been eagerly anticipating this one opening and are looking forward to trying it out.
Eater Chicago has the synopsis:
The new barbecue spot from the owners of Bellwether is open and intent on giving South Loopers a honky tonk good time. Belly Up Smokehouse & Saloon isn't only focusing on barbecue—and its not the first place with this combination—but there's also country music, so patrons have something to listen to while they gnaw through their meats.
The menu includes nods to Kansas City thanks to burnt end chili. Forget beef ribs, as they're serving pork baby backs here. There's also pulled pork and chicken, along with smoked brisket. For those just not into meat, there's a grilled cheese with pimento and tomato coulis. Browse the full menu here.Here are some more photos we received:
