$59 -- Carson's Full BBQ Rib Dinner for 2 w/Drinks, Reg. $92

Sold out - This deal was published May 16, 2013 and sold out May 26, 2013.
By Travelzoo Staff
It's tough to beat a review like this: Chicago Magazine simply calls Carson's, the Place for Ribs, one of Chicago's best restaurants ever. With this exclusive deal for $59, regularly $92, two can enjoy a world-famous BBQ dinner along with drinks at what the Tribune calls "a Chicago staple."

Why we love it

  • Frommer's calls Carson's "a true Chicago institution"
  • Visit River North and feast on a full rack of Carson's world-famous, slow-smoked BBQ ribs
  • The Food Network says it's "awesome BBQ without the fuss"
  • Carson's has "hands down, the best sauce we've tried" (Chicago Tribune)
  • Zagat describes Carson's as "one of the Chicago originals"
  • Comes with 2 salads and 2 drinks, including cocktails or craft beers

Great food and service

Meal was amazing.

Staff friendly.

The servers were pleasant and efficient.

I thought the ribs were a bit tough, and not as meaty as I would have expected. I could be wrong about this, but I thought the Cole slaw was included with the full slab rib dinner. If so, it was never brought to the table.

The food was great! Everything was done just as we asked.Presented beautifully and hot...

The Service was exceptional that night, Olga was the best server we ever had there. She went over and above any other server experience.
