Stevie B's Rib Cafe, the best barbecue ribs you ever tasted!
In 1984, confident that he had a great product, Steve Birger opened his first rib joint.
Construction began at Halsted and Wrightwood in Chicago's near North side. Everything was in place, except for one key ingredient: Steve had no name for his restaurant.
Then while watching a comedy sketch called "Rappin Jimmy B" on Saturday Night Live starring his buddy Jim Belushi, he had his name. Stevie B's Rib Cafe has been in business ever since.
In 1994, Steve decided to move back home to South Florida. With the help of his original chef, Jimmy Naverette, the first Stevie B's Rib Cafe was opened in Weston in southwestern Broward County.
Stevie B's BBQ sauce recipe combines the hickory taste of the South with the traditional flavor of Chicago BBQ. Our Ribs are baked and then grilled to perfection on a charbroil grill.
