We ordered dinner tonight- we had a variety including pork, chicken, brisket - we had all the sides too. It was some of the BEST bbq we’ve had in a very long time! Our whole family loved it! The family who owns it is amazing and their service, quality and food is just as amazing! We can’t wait to order again- next time it’s the ribs! Thank you both so much Thaddeus! More...

Went there for lunch the other day and it was phenomenal. Got the chicken and brisket combo and for $10 actually had lunch for 2 days. Brisket was done very well for my liking and the chicken had a great smoky flavor. Drove past it many times in the last couple of years and very glad I finally gave it a try! I highly recommend Little Nick’s! More...

We grabbed a couple chopped pork po'boys for lunch and even after the long, delicious smelling 30 minute drive home they were awesome! The pork was so flavorful you didn't even need the sauce...but of course you have to have the sauce! Loved the pickled onions! Can't wait to try the ribs! More...

Glad there is another minority rib establishment in Rockford. Bought the “Que for Two” and honestly I didn’t really care for the liquid Smokey flavor and the sauce wasn’t good, but to each his own. It’s got a different kick than Rick’s Ribs. Try it for yourself! Again, it’s nice to have another minority business that sells ribs and more. Praying for success! More...

We have been waiting for great BBQ in Rockford. The wait is over! We had the Juneteenth family special and it was beyond our expectations. The flavor of the meats were mouthwatering. And there was so much food! We had dinner and lunch and still have leftovers! The coleslaw is fantastic, the Mac and cheese delectable and the green beans were tasty! You were out of baked beans by the time we ordered but we can’t wait to try them too! We will be back! Thank you for bringing true BBQ to Rockford! More...

Highly recommend! Excellent smoked bbq! Tastes like Texan bbq! We got a family meal with chicken, beef brisket, spareribs- all tender and delish! Baked beans super sweet with onion are delish, mac & cheese and fries delish. BBQ sauce is thick and super sweet. More...

Chicken was over smoked, The food had barely any taste. The baked beans were extremely too sweet, and the green beans were plain right from the can. the Cole slaw was dry.. The worst $82 I ever spent on food.. The mac & cheese was the only thing we liked.. More...

Oh my Lord!!! My tastebuds are still happy! I tried the pork shoulder and it was divine. Melt in your mouth tender. Love the BBQ sauce cuz it's got just enough sweetness. The mac and cheese has that taste you can only get with homemade. My only dislike was the coleslaw; had too much onion but that's just a personal preference (I don't like alot of onion in anything). I also think the portions, especially the sides, could be a bit bigger but I don't know if they were actually too small or if my tummy just wished for more 😂. Love having this place just around the corner from home. We will definitely be visiting again soon. More...

I highly recommend Little Nick's BBQ to anyone who enjoys delicious, authentic barbecue. The pork is tender. The barbecue sauce is amazing, with a hint of sweetness. The macaroni and cheese tasted homemade. We ate well for less than $10 a person. I'm looking forward to becoming regular customers. Oh, and try the caramel poundcake. Trust me. More...

After finally finding the hours on the internet I tried calling three times in the first hour. No answer On the fourth call approximately 75 minutes after the posted opening time the phone was answered by a woman who was very cold and rude. I asked if I could place an order for later pick-up and she quickly informed me that I had to call back when I wanted to pick-up the order. Three hours later ( four hours into the eight hours they had posted as their open hours for that day) I called to again place an order. It took four unanswered calls to finally get a recorder message that they had closed early. WOW. We have tried too many times to patronize this restaurant and the frustration is not worth any product they may make, be it good or bad. The owner may have learned how to BBQ, he most certainly did not learn how to operate a business We will not ever realize if they actually do cook great BBQ (and we have tasted Q from over 100 top BBQ cooks) as the fod cannot be worth the frustration.
