Leon's Bar-B-Q (Chatham) - Chicago
Leon Finney Sr. came north from Mississippi and started Leon's with his Aunt Bertha in 1940, and the his sons and daughters are still slow smokin' the barbecue with his secret recipes. Look for hickory-smoked spareribs, rib tips and hot links, all slathered in Leon's sweet-and-tangy sauce. This location shares a building with Dat Old Fashioned Donut. Carry out only.
