Lem’s is a classic counter-service BBQ spot on the South Side that’s been around since 1954, and what you want to focus on here are their rip tips and hot links. And while you're at it, get an order of fries to soak up the extra sauce. Also good to know: this place is open until 1am during the week, and 3am on the weekend.
