Second Lillie's Q Location in Chicago to Open in Chicago French Market Late January

Lillie’s Q chef/owner Charlie McKenna will open a second Lillie’s Q location in Chicago featuring award-winning competition BBQ and Southern favorites inside the Chicago French Market in the West Loop (131 N Clinton St) in late January.

 At the Lillie’s Q Chicago French Market location, McKenna’s will serve about half of the same menu he serves at his Lillie’s Q restaurant in Bucktown. One dish that will only be available at the Lillie’s Q in the Chicago French Market will be scratch-made kettle chips dusted with either pimiento cheese powder or Lillie’s Q “Carolina Dirt” BBQ rub.

The Lillie’s Q in the Chicago French Market will serve food from 10am until 7pm Monday thru Friday, and 10am until 4pm on Saturday. Cash and all major credit cards will be accepted as payment.

McKenna opened the Lillie’s Q location in Bucktown in July 2010. He also co-owns and helped open the first Lillie’s Q with his parents in Destin, Florida, in 2008. McKenna – a former sous chef at both TRU and Avenues in the Peninsula Hotel – won the prestigious Memphis In May BBQ competition in 2007 in the whole pork shoulder category and placed in Top Ten every year from 2006 through 2010 and finished 12th in 2011.
