Legendary Illinois BBQ Joint Makes America’s ‘Absolute Best Ribs’
When the dust settles on the holidays you're going to need something that fills your belly.
Not saying that the food you'll eat around these next few weeks won't make you full but you know it's not going to be your first choice.
Maybe I'm just projecting here but if it's not pizza or popcorn it's BBQ ribs and when I'm talking about ribs I'm only getting them from top-tier restaurants.
That's why I was super excited to see a legendary Chicago place on the list of restaurants featuring the Absolute Best Ribs in the US that I have yet to try.
Not many rib joints score even an entry in the famously elitist Michelin Guide, let alone a coveted star. But the Twin Anchors restaurant — a Chicago institution since 1932 — makes it into the handbook's snooty pages. Twin Anchors is designated with L'Assiette Michelin, or the Michelin Plate, which indicates a restaurant that serves 'quality food.'
High praise from Michelin for Twin Anchors while also mentioning "to throw a quarter in the jukebox and get saucy with a slab of their legendary ribs in one of the curved booths."
However, a TripAdvisor reviewer, Kathy D. had a different experience at Twin Anchors saying they have "very average ribs" and "can think of a dozen other places that have better ribs."
