What I Ordered
Fried Pickles with Ranch - these are a MUST order!!!! sooo good and unusually spicy for fried pickles but, I could've eaten 2 plates of these to myself. They also throw a few onion straws in with them.
Pulled Pork Sandwich - House Made BBQ Sauce, Jicama Apple Slaw, Pretzel Bun. Super tasty and the slaw was a great change to the typical cold mayo/vinegar slaw you usually get a standard BBQ joint. Will be ordering this again.
Boulevard Burger - Crispy Onion, Gruyere, Smoked Bacon, Bacon Aioli, Brioche Bun. This simply was one of THE BEST BURGERS IN CHICAGO that I've eaten so far. Perfectly cooked, juicy, flavorful, orgasmic kind of burger. That GOOD.
In Short: Neighborhood bar and grill with a great atmosphere, decent prices, bbq, burgers, craft brew, games, juke box, sports. Something for everyone
There is nothing better than having a good bar and grill that is; walking distance from home, not too overly hip, good music, games to play, serves tasty drinks with even tastier food. The Boulevard Sports Lounge is literally down the street from me which is a fun little neighborhood bar that airs all of the Chicago Sports on several TVs throughout along with a Shuffleboard Table, Foosball, and Dart Boards for all your friendly wagering needs. They just started serving food not too long ago and I couldn’t be any more excited!! Not to mention their menu consists of my kind of yummy grub: BBQ!! Win Win!
Now this isn’t a smoke house barbecue joint but, more of a bar food barbecue joint meaning there is no low and slow smoke flavor to the meat or restaurant but, the meat is tender and the bbq sauce is good.
If your in the Humboldt Park neighborhood of Chicago you should definitely stop in and grab a few craft brews (about 24 – 30 on tap), catch a game, and have some eats.
P.S. There is currently a Groupon for The Boulevard Online, so if your hesitant get the discount and check it out!
