Soul & Smoke Evanston

1601 Payne St. , Evanston, IL 60201

Bars & Taverns

At Soul & Smoke, we treat barbecue with the reverence it deserves. We are consumed with the details: the meat to bone ratio on our ribs, the creaminess of our mac and cheese, and the combination of spices in Chef Carter’s signature sauce.

And as a classically trained chef, he’s primed with the palate and patience to pull those nourishing, heart-warming barbecue flavors from the smoke. We currently have locations in Avondale and Evanston, as well as pop ups at events (check out website for more). You can also find Chef D’Andre’s signature BBQ sauce in all 44 Mariano’s and a spice rub available at Forza Meats, with more on the horizon.
