    Great bourbon selection. No they don't have Pappy but who cares? They've got Breckenridge Bourbon - beat out Pappy in a blind taste test! FYI the Jacko Traveler pumpkin beer is fantastic!

    Bacon Glazed Donuts will NOT disappoint! Delicious end to my meal! Wings had a hint of bacon/Porkchop flavor also.. Loved it all! Place to be if you LOVE BACON! And everyone loves bacon right!?

    Ask Porkchop to “add meat” to anything on your menu. Besides their grilled porkchop, this place is also known for fried chicken! Come here on a Friday or Saturday to listen to live local rock bands.

    Everything was delicious! We had the fried chicken dinner, Mac n cheese app and peach cobbler for dessert. The atmosphere was unique and the service was great.

    Opened last week, Porkchop is Dion Antic’s (Bagel on Damen, Rockstar Dogs) latest foray into simple, tasty eats. Stop in late (it’s open until 2 a.m. from Tuesdays through Saturdays).

    Smoked chicken was perfect, had the crispy burnt smoked skin but not over done, order no sauce on, then try them all

    "The Mouthful" was a great take on the traditional pulled pork sandwich at the idea stage. The execution, however, just tasted like bland meat on a burger bun. Get another whiskey drink instead.

    The sausage pops are fried goodness. The enormous chicken fried pork chop is awesome.

    Fried chicken its amazing, but ask for the gravy on the side it makes the super crispy chicken soggy. Oh and one whiskey drink=tipsy.

    The place's namesake, the pork chop dinner with potatoes is REALLY good, and reasonably priced for the Loop.

    Why is this place so popular, with SO many locations? Drinks are good. Staff is nice. Food is SO mediocre it's annoying

    The new location on Dearborn & Harrison has successfully become the worst BBQ I've ever had. Could not finish my ribs or mac. Inedible. Even the pickle was awful. Go to the other location.
