Slow-smoked bbq, thin-crust pizza, salads, burgers, and craft beer.

Big Bricks Restaurant & Bar is located in the North Center neighborhood of Chicago.  Known for its slow-smoked barbecue, thin-crust pizza, the restaurant also haven for craft beer enthusiasts who can count on a great beer selection from Chicago and around the world.

In addition to its killer bbq and pizza, Big Bricks menu features many items that are based on the classic Chicago dining experience. Slutty Ravioli, a double, thin-pattied Burger, Roast Beet Salad, and Smoked Wings are some favorites.  

Our barbecue slow-smoked in a genuine Oyler smoker with hickory and applewood to give you the perfect amount of smoke to enhance the flavor of the meat. We believe it’s bbq the way it supposed to be.

Pizza is thin-crust style with a range of choices from the spicy and adventurous to the traditional and straightforward.

You top this off with welcoming and friendly service and genuine North Center neighborhood charm, and you’ve got a place worth calling a second home! Big Bricks! We look forward to serving you!
