If you’re already familiar with the Southern restaurant Luella’s in Lincoln Square, then you’ll understand why Bell Heir's is so great. Bell Heir's is a small, counter-service BBQ spot in Bronzeville, and its owner is one of Luella’s grandsons. The menu is short, with things like rib tips, fried chicken wings, and a burger. And the BBQ is definitely the best stuff here. The meat is lacquered in a tangy, sweet sauce that complements the hickory-smoked flavor of the meat. Especially the smoked turkey leg topped with baked mac and cheese. A forkful of everything together tastes like the backyard picnic you wait all winter to have. Bell Heir's is primarily a takeout operation, though there are a few tables available.
