Smoke Daddy is a very large, very bright BBQ spot in Wrigleyville that kind of feels like a chain restaurant, even though there’s only one other location (in Wicker Park). This one is on the same block as the Hotel Zachary, and has an upstairs patio along with enough TVs to make it basically qualify as a sports bar. Does it serve the best BBQ in the city? No. But the food here is pretty tasty, and there’s live music seven days a week. Get a sampler platter, plus some cornbread and baked beans.
