This Iconic Restaurant In Chicago Just Might Serve The Best Ribs In The Entire World
Barbecue is always in season, and Chicago is home to some of the best places to find it. While brisket and pork abound, the best ribs in the whole world are right here at this iconic restaurant. If you haven’t already, it’s about time you tried this famous eatery.
Twin Anchors Restaurant in Old Town serves up some of the best ribs in the world.
They have been in operation since 1932, making it one of the oldest restaurants in the city... and certainly one of the most popular.
Twin Anchors has always been known for its BBQ baby back ribs. One taste of these tender, flavorful morsels, and you'll be hooked.
Part of the restaurant's fame comes from the celebrities who visit there. Frank Sinatra started coming here in the 1950s and would occasionally host gatherings with his famous friends.
Sinatra was known for always being a gracious guest, signing autographs and tipping staff $100 each. He definitely thought these were the best ribs in town.
Twin Anchors is housed in a building that dates back to 1881, and there is evidence that alcohol was served here as far back as 1910.
When ownership changed hands in the 1930s, it became a permanent location and was given a nautical theme to match its name.
This award-winning restaurant has been featured in magazines, newspapers, and TV specials for its food and atmosphere.
It is so famous that it has been mentioned in popular sitcoms and films, including
The Dark Night and Just Shoot Me.
In addition to the best ribs, the menu also offers chicken, seafood, steak, burgers, pulled pork, salads, and more.
There's also an extensive list of appetizers and cocktails, as well as tasty beer and wine lists.
Here's one last look at those ribs...
They are slow-cooked and meaty, topped with sauce and paired with comfort food sides like a baked potato or baked beans.
This family-owned restaurant's current owners have been in charge for more than 35 years.
The bar is open daily for dinner on weekdays and for both lunch and dinner on weekends.
Twin Anchors is located at 1655 N Sedgwick Street. For more information, visit its
