One of my projects was in Evanston. Ive had these tips quite a few times over the past 1 ½ years.
If you're jonesen for some BBQ and don't have the time to drive to the S. side, these rib tips are the best BBQ north of the city w/the exception of perhaps Hillarys pork shoulder in the town of North Chicago. Heckys does not really register for me.
There are a few locations of Buffalo Joes, but not all serve rib tips. The one I frequent is on Howard, a block west of Clark.
Open for lunch and dinner.
