Sorry to lead you astray on Merle's. I think the food is fine, but we don't eat barbecue all that often so what do I know. My son is addicted to their wings. He was probably in there the night you were there if it was all-you-could-eat wing night.

Merle's closed? I hadn't heard that. Well, from the gist of your review it doesn't sound like the barbecue was all that good any longer. That was one of my favorite places to go when I went to school at Northwestern.


Merle's #1 Barbecue was the best of the best!

Beef, baby back, St. Louis ribs, all fantastic. Unfortunately Prescott died and the restaurant went downhill....
