Lillie's Q Rises From The Ashes Tonight

The interior of Lillie's Q.
In March, beloved Bucktown BBQ spot Lillie's Q was seriously damaged by a fire. At the time, we were told that the location was closed "indefinitely," but we heard rumors later that they would be aiming for a June reopening. Being cynics (and having some experience with restaurant contractors), we didn't quite believe it. Joke's on us: they open for business tonight.

Lillie's Q, one of our favorite BBQ joints, reopens at 5 p.m. tonight and will start normal business hours tomorrow. The Chicago French Market location, which has been serving a limited menu due to a lack of kitchen space, will be back to its full menu next week.

Lillie's Q is located at 1856 W North Avenue.
