Reopened after a fire, Charlie McKenna's Bucktown 'cue joint (with a West Loop sib) remains a "meat lover's" "heaven" with "luscious" pulled pork, "scarf"-worthy ribs and other "Southern favorites", plus ‘moonshine' cocktails and an "awesome beer selection", all served in rustic, wood-accented digs; service gets mixed marks ("terrific" vs. "unreliable"), the "no-reservations policy is annoying" and a few find it just "so-so", but with moderate prices most agree it's still a "solid choice."
