My wife and I dine out 3 to 4 times per week. I am from Memphis and love a good BBQ, and I never look at the prices. I eat at Turtles and the Rockwell often. 3 months ago, We were shopping at Menard's till late and saw this place. We run in for some take out of "anything they have left" just before they close and they are rude and not interested. All the food was still out, in fact they walked over and turned off the open sign while we were standing there.

Too many other places out there that want my business, I will not be back.

I think many of the posters with negative reveiws are either owners or workers at some competetors restaurant, I have sent and told many people about this place and evryone of them said it was awsome, great food, fast service and evrything was freshly made with large portions, I took a cleint their last week who does competative BBQ ing and he said the place was great, he not only raves about the brisket, he ordered 3 whole chickens and 3 full slabs of ribs to bring back to his office for his employee's, You can beilieve these half hearted post with their negative spin and personal interest on getting yuor buisness to go somewhere else or you can take a chance and spend 5.oo and see the truth for yourrself,

There are no nearby BBQ competitors. I think most of these comments are genuine. I've eaten there twice and it's "just okay" at best. It's the only BBQ game in town, though.

A year later gave this one last chance, my opinion hasn't changed at all. Staff is just flat out ignorant and rude. I never met such rude people in my life. As far as food goes, if you know traditional BBQ, and now anything about smoking this place really sucks. It's funny, the have this huge smoker, and pile of wood outside, but there seems to never to be smoke. You should be able to smell and see the smoke from miles away. I live right down the street and nothing. I don't care what kind of smoker they have, or ventilation system they have, smokers make smoke and a lot of it. This place makes fake BBQ with a roaster and liquid smoke. That why there BBQ sucks, it's fake smoke.
not a fan indeed

I just read through all the previous comments - I have been a fan of Ron's for a few months - since the first time I tried it. Apparently they have made some improvements.
I am a fan of BBQ pulled pork sandwiches. I have sampled the works of fine smoker artists across the deep south, and as far north as Erie, PA and all the way out to Arizona. Most in the south were pretty spectacular. Some in the north are decent, but rare to find TRUE smoked pork shoulder.
With that said, Ron's seems to do it right. They have a smoker out back, and the meat alone has that distinctive smoky flavor. Sauce selection is a little slim with just "hot or mild" which are not much different - a sweet bbq sauce with just a little kick. I would like to see a little more heat in their sauce. But thats my personal opinion. Their side dishes are excellent too. I like their slaw, tater salad, and would recommend their broccoli salad. Service has been great every time we go there - and I have been there about 6-8 times in the past 6 months. The place is always clean and food has always been served fresh and hot.
So - for those of you who think Ron's is mediocre or bad, I am sorry you feel that way. For the rest of you, I would recommend giving it a try. I would give them about a 7.5 for their smoking, and a 9+ for the overall experience and value. For Illinois BBQ, this place is DAMN good.

Tried Ron's on a recommendation and had a half-slab of babyback's. Best I've ever had. Sides were good and the staff could not have been any more friendly. I look forward to my next visit.
