  • Slow-cooked meats the real deal at Vernon Hills' Real Urban Barbecue Oct 15, 2014 2:40 PM
    The best thing about Real Urban Barbecue in Vernon Hills is the meat. It is smoked to fall-apart perfection: 12 hours for the pulled pork and 14 for the brisket. I love burnt ends. When it comes to RUB's burnt ends, these are my new favorites. RUB makes about 1-inch cubes and the meat collapses under the slightest bite for a slow-cooked, soft, delicious mouthful. I may have been spoiled for life.

    In these parts, steak joints pretty much are a dime a dozen. Mellower than most of its city brethren, Walker's Charhouse in Naperville delivers on beefiness with hand-cut Angus. As for its setting, expect something that's casual and Naperville-centric. To that end, there are town murals painted on the walls, no-frills booth and table seating and wood-paneled walls. Kind of a supper club-meets-Greek-restaurant.
