The 800-pound gorilla of area Middle Eastern restaurants.
Great Mexican and deep-south cooking in the southwest 'burbs.

This yellow-and-red-trimmed shack brazenly belches sweet, porky, hickory fumes from its smokestack, mocking the health food store across the street. While ribs and tips are delicately rendered, they still maintain a satisfying, tooth-tugging chew. Appropriately, the sauce is an afterthought—too sticky-sweet and maybe a better summertime treat, frozen on a stick. But the finely ground hot link, a sausage rarely worth going out of the way for, is bravely peppered, intensely clovey, and by rights should make this lonely stretch of the south suburbs better traveled. —Mike Sula
