Daddy D'z BBQ Joynt Restaurant Review: Describing Daddy D’z only needs one word: ramshackle. A blue fence that seems vulnerable to a summer breeze is painted in porcine images, while an image of a bald eagle bedecks another segment of the barrier. An outlandish sign on the roof articulating the name of the establishment accompanies a sculpted pig figure. Chicago native Ron Newman owns this ’cue icon that has held its own for a quarter century. He named it in honor of his late father-in-law. A sign on the wall declares the parking reserved for Cubs fans. Unique on the menu are the Q wraps, little fried morsels of dough enclosing barbecue, but many target the ribs, served with a Midwestern-style, thick sauce. The hot sauce is better than the mild. Collard greens are first-rate. Red beans and rice comes with sausage as a main dish or without meat as a side item. Pulled pork has some sauce already mixed in, but tastes so good we won’t complain. The place serves beer as its only alcohol. Desserts include cakes and cookies, and choices vary.
