Bub City - Rosemont
I was so disappointed that they had changed their menu! I am vegetarian and there weren’t many options for me. I had looked forward to the whipped sweet potatoes and Brussel sprout salad and they no longer have either of those on the new menu.
Was so looking forward to the Nashville Hot chicken fingers since I was splurging after losing 40 pounds! We ordered an appetizer first and had to tell the waiter to delay our entrée order, which he said he would let the kitchen know. But unfortunately, we ended up getting just chicken fingers instead of the Nashville hot chicken fingers. Are going back in mid February and will continue to dine at Bub City.
Great place to have something to eat before going to Joe’s live.
best BBQ in Illinois. want to go back to order the pulled pork and chicken wings.
the food was very good, as group of 4 we tried a variety of things on the menu and all were delicious. I had a full slab of ribs and they were excellent with a lot of meat on the bones. Our waitress was excellent always stopping to see if everything was ok or if we needed something else. I highly recommend Bub City.
Fun drinks, great food-phenomenal mac-n-cheese
Nice quiet Tuesday. Went out for dinner. Enjoy the music and drinks.
Saturday night dinner with friends. Good BBQ and good salad. Chicken on salad was a small portion but overall salad was very satisfying. Service was great. We had reservations at 7:45pm & had to wait about 15-20 minutes since they were so backed up. It was a very busy Saturday night!
Outstanding experience this time around! Our server was awesome and the food was great. I really appreciate the care that was given to us throughout the evening! Looking forward to next time!
Very good food. Quick, fresh tasting and fun atmosphere.
Great food portions are a little smaller but overall good!
The place was jammed packed. Fun restaurant with very good food and drinks and energy. They were about 15 minutes late seating us after our reservation time but they were very polite. The manager stopped by our table in the middle of our dinner to apologize about the delay in getting seated. Everything was great and I would recommend.
Best and most underrated wings I have ever had. craving them already
It was a busy Saturday but plenty of tables available if you had a walk in. We however had a reservation for 4. To start the hostess asked me my first name. I gave it to her, she then proceeded to ask me again for my FRIST name. I kindly gave it to her again and then she yelled at me "well what's your last name"
Very rude hostess. Walked us to our table didnt say a word. We waited around 10 minutes to be greet by our server, from which I counted had maybe a 4-5 table section with 3 tables sat, that I could see. Maybe she was new, no big deal I'm a server myself. Ordered drinks, took 5 minutes to get them. My daughter was a milk shake so she had to find a different menu that the hostess didnt give us. In between that period she came back and re greeted us, she forgot she already had gotten our two drinks. We ordered the milk shake and our food. Food cake out fast, but wasnt what we expected. Ribs were okay, not the best I've had in the Chicago area. My.husband had wings and didnt even finish as he said they were very appetizing. Never were we checked on about our food or if it was good. Needless to say we wont be back, unless it's for a country show.
Nice place but wasn't happy at all with our server. We ordered nachos with chicken and we received no guacamole (says on the menu) and a bunch of jalapenos on it (not on the menu). She told us that the guacamole has to be requested and the jalapenos are always on it. I wish I would of known that because I can't deal with spicy foods. She offered to bring us the guac and salsa and I was happy that she would. However, she never did. She never offered to refill our waters; we had to ask her too plenty of times. We couldn't find her a lot to refill our drinks and order more drinks (so we didn't). Also, we ordered a side of beans when we ordered our nachos and she collected our menus. We did not receive the beans until we were about to leave. She thought we wanted them after our nachos as a meal. There was a HUGE lack of communication and I was very unhappy with the experience. I 've been to Bub City before with my boyfriend and we had a good time so I would recommend a friend here but I am hoping if I ever go back, it wouldn't be like last time.
Everyone was so friendly. The food was served Promt, hot and tasted simply delicious. One of our favorite restaurants to go to
Fun! Love the live country music! Food always good!
Bloody Mary bar for the brunch was cool. Appetizers were average at best. Server was a bit clueless. Been here a couple times but not impressed. Won’t go back.
It was New Years Eve so extremely crowded and hectic and loud. The band was excellent. Our server did a great job for how busy it was. Food was mediocre. Brisket burger is 2 thin patties with some type of cheese spread no lettuce, tomato or onion. Small portion of fries. 3 meat platter had chicken with skin torn off, cole slaw was terrible tasting. Not really authentic BBQ. Great place for drinks or dessert and entertainment.
I had taken my friends here for the first time and they loved it.
Our experience was awesome! We had made a reservation but had to wait when we arrived. The manager noticed that we were waiting and made sure that he kept us informed as to how much longer it would be. He bought us an appetizer for the inconvenience. So friendly and welcoming! Made for a great New Year's eve dinner!
Great food loved it loved the atmosphere had a great time on New Year's Eve
Overall a good experience, as it is a fun place to be at - quite lively. Somewhat disappointed in the amount/quality of the food on the $32 Sampler Combo, and the Back Porch Tea was really watered down (more ice than drink).
I am a big fan of the LEY restaurants, so I am always a big surprised when it doesn't meet the high bar they have set.
NYE with friends. We didn’t eat as we had previously dined. Our service was good and the first two piano players were great. The second two were okay, the woman was better. The second male piano player was a little too flippant. He made fun of two many of the songs chosen by the crowd. If you don’t like the song or can’t sing it- don’t!
It was fun, but the food wasn’t that good.
Service with a smile! Great atmosphere and music. Total Nashville feel.
Very good food and the atmosphere was lovely and fun.
Food was great! I had the BubCity burger and it was delicious... Parmesan tater tots were a hit... Will definitely go back...
Our server Frankie was amazing. Very good with our kids and very attentive. We love Bub city. They never disappoint.
The entertainment amazing and the waiters / waitresses awesome !! Food amazing !!!
Went on a Friday and messed up reservations as we had 6 in our party not the original 4. Bub City got us a table for 6 even though they were slammed. Our service was awesome.
Disappointing is the best summation I can offer.
We arrived very early for our reservation and the hostess accommodated right away.
It went down hill from there.
It took forever for the server to acknowledge us, he was to busy flirting with 4 20 somethings taking selfies with them around the bar.
Offered no suggestions on drinks off an extensive whisky menu. Forgot our water, took asking him 3 time to get the water.
The starter was to be fried pickles, he forgot to put that in so it came out after the entrees were there. (They were good BTW)
Entrees came out and were all cold, since the server was nowhere to be found could send back. No manager ever came around to check on the tables.
As LEYE gold card holder I’ve come to expect superior service and solid food. This experience seriously missed the mark.
The venue is fun and lively, if the service could match it I come back. As it is there are much better BBQ joints to visit in Chicago.
The food is always great here and the brunch Bloody Mary are delicious. Perfect for a brunch with a large group as the wait staff is always delighted to serve you. Great barbecue and sides. This place has a great bourbon selection and when the music starts the place gets lively.
The food is always good, but the service from Jason was fantastic!!
Our server, Frankie, was outstanding! Very welcoming and patient as some of my guests had never been to Bub City before. He had some great suggestions and the food was great! We will definitely return!
Great atmosphere for a night out. Rustic country vibe with great drinks and a live band some nights. Definitely will go back!
I'll sum it up in one word- meh. Very surprising for a LEYE restaurant. The decor was good, the service was spot-on, everything was what you'd expect from LEYE, except the food. The food was very meh. We both had brisket sandwiches, fries and coleslaw. The sandwich was small for the price, on a nondescript bun, and the meat, though tender, was flavorless. The fries had a sprinkling of paprika which made them different, though not particularly good. And the thimblefull of coleslaw was forgettable as well. I've come to expect more from LEYE.
The food was very good and the space is large and lively. The only thing we didn't care for was the music. The music was country which is good but there was a lot of base and it didn't match the music. It just sounded like extra noise.
Great food excellent service
Overall , a very disappointing meal. I’ve eaten at the downtown location and how I felt like what a bad choice this was. Ordered a mixed drink and 3/4 ice and 12 dollars later and the meal was even worse. So there are many better options at half the price and way better food.
My wife and I have dined here often and everytime is excellent! There's so many options on the menu that it takes forever to decide what to order! Our personal favorites are the Sunday Bloody Mary bar and the BBQ pork shoulder! If you arrive with a group, try and tackle their ENORMOUS Moscow Mule! Can't wait to dine here again!
