The Stockyards Smokehouse and Larder
For old-fashioned American barbecue dishes, The Stockyards Smokehouse and Larder is the best spot in the city. Although it’s small and intimate on the inside, no one seems to mind much when the food is this good. Diners often sit next to the bar flanking the kitchen to watch the chefs prepare their signature dish – chicken and waffles (hand-breaded chicken atop a fluffy Belgium waffle and glazed with chili-maple molasses). Get here early if you want to try this savory recipe, as it is only available on a first come, first served basis until 3pm.
