With the Chicago Cubs having won the 2016 World Series, Wrigleyville or the area around Wrigley Field is a hot destination. There are new restaurants and a hotel is planned and under construction.
I had to drive by and see the sign outside the stadium after having a great lunch at a new barbecue spot. Make sure to visit Myron Mixon’s Smoke Show Barbecue at 3801 N. Clark. Mixon the king of barbecue, has won more competitions than anyone else, and is star of BBQ Pitmasters. They smoke their own meat and make their own sauces onsite. The staff is great and I enjoyed meeting and visiting with them. I really enjoyed the pulled pork sandwich served on a brioche bun with coleslaw.
