Awesome (sub)Urban BBQ north of Chicago

Last Monday I took a quick trip to the northern suburbs of Chicago to meet with one of Raidious’s clients. While visiting, I was fortunate to have time for dinner with my good friend Matt from Matt Mansueto Photography. There were three of us, all hungry for something meaty.

On Matt’s recommendation, we checked out Real Urban Barbecue… which, is Vernon Hills… a very non-urban suburb of Chicago.

I mean really, it’s in a strip mall.

That being said, it was delicious, and I highly recommend it if you are in the area. I enjoyed the Home ‘Recker, which is Texas Sausage with pulled pork, some potato salad, and corn bread. There are lots of sauce options, and many vintage soda options, as well as home made sweet tea.
