The Best Outdoor BBQ Grilling!
· Chuck Wagon Grilling ·
· Customized Menus ·
Over the years, we have done everything from Clam and Lobster bakes to Greek Weddings and Texas Tri Tip. We've cooked and catered for people like Oprah Winfrey (for years) several Illinois Governors (none jailed), Randy Travis and many of our neighbors. What's my point? We can create a menu for you for just about anything you would like. If you don't see it listed, just ask and we'll do it. Some of our best parties are created by your suggestions and desires. So, what can we grill for you? The Chuck Wagon is ready to roll. Happy Grilling!
One thing you will know by the time you leave the Crystal Lake Rib House is not only is the menu big, the portions are enormous! This combination of awesome BBQ and huge portions has been what owner/pit master David Faccone has been serving for over 20 years. His artful process of smoking baby back ribs slathering them in his homemade sauce then grilling them to a beautiful molten glow is what this place is all about. Try an order of fried pickles or a heaping pile of Vidalia onion rings and you are on your way to hog heaven. We now have cheese curds and pork shanks....sooooo good!!!

Jan and former Chicago Bear, Marcus Robinson. Jan and David with Micah Hyde and John Kuhn of the Green Bay Packers!
Phew!! Who knew my sign out front could cause so much commotion? During the Packers vs. Bears Playoffs for Super Bowl XLV, I put "Packers Fans Pay Double" on the marquee. I got a call from the Daily Herald Newspaper who interviewed me and ran a story with a picture of the marquee. Then, I was interviewed by the Northwest Herald Newspaper. Then, the Associated Press called for an interview and then ran a story! Too bad our Bears lost! But they had a good run!
The Crystal Lake Rib House is open daily from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. We are closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter.
