The Best Outdoor BBQ Grilling!

· Chuck Wagon Grilling ·

When it comes to Outdoor BBQ Grilling, we smoke the competition. As the BBQ Grilling Experts, we are able to deliver the best grilling at the highest quality available. We offer flexibility and variety, and are focused on your satisfaction.

  · Customized Menus ·
 

Over the years, we have done everything from Clam and Lobster bakes to Greek Weddings and Texas Tri Tip. We've cooked and catered for people like Oprah Winfrey (for years) several Illinois Governors (none jailed), Randy Travis and many of our neighbors. What's my point? We can create a menu for you for just about anything you would like. If you don't see it listed, just ask and we'll do it. Some of our best parties are created by your suggestions and desires. So, what can we grill for you? The Chuck Wagon is ready to roll. Happy Grilling!

 

One thing you will know by the time you leave the Crystal Lake Rib House is not only is the menu big, the portions are enormous! This combination of awesome BBQ and huge portions has been what owner/pit master David Faccone has been serving for over 20 years. His artful process of smoking baby back ribs slathering them in his homemade sauce then grilling them to a beautiful molten glow is what this place is all about. Try an order of fried pickles or a heaping pile of Vidalia onion rings and you are on your way to hog heaven. We now have cheese curds and pork shanks....sooooo good!!!

The pulled pork sandwich is the biggest you have ever seen! A huge pile of tender dry rubbed smoked pork on a toasted bun tossed with that tangy sauce is a site to behold. "I like to feed my guests the way I like to eat", explains the owner.

A larger selection of ice-cold beer makes your visit complete. "I don't know if there's anything better than beer and BBQ so I always have draft beer, I keep just above freezing". If not by the food, then by the highly personalized service, you quickly understand this is a great place to be visiting.

Our Commitment To You!!

We are 100% committed to making sure your time with us is memorable, and your meal is nothing short of perfect.  Don't hesitate to ask our staff for anything that will make your time with us better!  We are more than happy to accommodate!

Phew!! Who knew my sign out front could cause so much commotion? During the Packers vs. Bears Playoffs for Super Bowl XLV, I put "Packers Fans Pay Double" on the marquee. I got a call from the Daily Herald Newspaper who interviewed me and ran a story with a picture of the marquee. Then, I was interviewed by the Northwest Herald Newspaper.  Then, the Associated Press called for an interview and then ran a story! Too bad our Bears lost! But they had a good run!

The Crystal Lake Rib House is open Monday thru Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. We are closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter.
