No bargains here at all and I probably won't be back. But very nice ambiance for my taste and drinks very reasonably priced. I'm not fond of the selection of food. I don't care for bbq pork and such. ...I bought cheese quesadilla but had to send them back due to sparse cheese. They did replace them and second order had much more cheese. They tasted excellent but for $9 only came with tablespoon of sour cream and tablespoon of salsa in a little container.
My friend fared far worse. She ordered $5.00 salad which was a very small salad consisting of nothing but mixed greens. She ordered turkey side to top off her salad. For $6 her serving of turkey was 3 slices turkey lunch meat.

Been in town for a week and a half and I've already been here 7 times. I can't say enough about this place the ribs are the best I think I have ever had in my entire life and the brisket was so tender... and the burgers, the burgers, the Rack Burger is out of this world and don't even get me started on the maple chili wings, HOLY WOW. Those wings are a must for every meal. I'm from Arkansas and down there we're caught in between Kansas City and Memphis BBQ battles....who prefers what and which one is better..... the guys that I came to Arlington Heights with and myself included believe that the barbecue ribs at Rack House is legit and hands down the best we've ever had. To top it off the ambience and atmosphere is great, warm and inviting and such a friendly staff. They also have a great selection of beer and single malts. Ask for Erica, she has taken great care of my group, she is very knowledgeable about the menu and everything she has recommended has not disappointed in the least bit. She has a great personality, she's very attentive and Converses with you like your old friends and always has a smile to greet you when you walk in. We also got to meet Chef Brian tonight and could not congratulate and praise him enough on his menu. Tomorrow night is our last in town and we will be ordering the SmokeHouse platter......Saving the best for last as they say. See More

The ribs were overcooked our waitress did not keep our table clean but then again why should she when she knows that she's going to be getting tips from people even if she doesn't deserve tips that is... what's wrong when they automatically put a tip on the check ours was $11 which was no big deal but it was overpaid is she had kept stable clean for us I would say we would have gave her $15 I do not believe I will go back to the rack again I think they suck See More

I've seen this place a thousand times. Finally went tonight with a friend. Ordered the Smokehouse Platter thing as we were told that it would feed two people and still have food left over, plus it's a... little of all the meats that they offer, two baked potato's, and a plate of corn bread all for $50.00. The only way I can describe this visit and it still doesn't do it justice is ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Our waitress Selena was very attentive without being overbearing. She was also very knowledgeable of the menu and the food. The food. What can I say about the food. It was the most tender, moist, flavorful Smoked BBQ I have ever had from a restaurant. Their Bourbon BBQ Sauce is outta this world!!!!!!!!!!!!! For $50 you get probably about $70+ worth of food, and enough for 4 people. GREAT DEAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Brisket absolutely melts in your mouth.
Over all our experience was absolutely off the hook!!!!!!!!!!!!! I would rate this an 11 if I could. We will definitely be back and bringing more friends with us to share this phenomenal place. It's hard to find a great BBQ joint. We have definitely found one with Rack House!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Started off with BBQ Brisket Nacho's which were fantastic. I had a pulled pork sandwich also great and the other person with me had a smoked turkey sandwich. He filled up on the nachos and hasn't eat...en the sandwich yet. I did ask for a sample of 2 of their draft beers and they were out. I selected two other beers to try and they were out of those as well. All together - they were out of 7 of the beers they advertised on the menu. See More

Nice place. Brisket is a bit dry so was the potato. The smoked cheddar mac and cheese was most excellent. Cole slaw was on point,and fried pickles too. Service, not so great, the waitress avoided our... table like we had leprosy. See More

We've been looking for a place to come back to again and again. After our first visit, we'd love to make this it. The food is awesome! Hands down best BBQ I've had in the area. The selection of Whiske...y is fantastic. Servers are friendly and food arrived quickly. When I say the food is awesome... It really is fantastic, fresh and well made. See More

While hosting a large event at the Renaissance Schaumburg nearby, I learned at 7 AM the morning of that we needed an event space for a dinner for 40 that night. The Renaissance staff worked to find a ...location that could accommodate our group on such short notice, and by noon had worked with the Rack House and confirmed availability. A quick phone call with the Rack House to discuss logistics and we were set for the evening. It turned out great - they were able to take care of us in a private room, put together a limited menu that was personalized with our company name, and did a great job. Everyone thought that I had planned the event in advance - kudos to the Rack House for excellent service on such short notice! See More

The staff and people were very friendly and accommodating and the restaurant itself was very cozy and beautiful. The food was good but I felt the burgers are bland and I wish they had more on the menu... than just burgers. The wine (I ordered the Rose) was awful however I will be coming back to give this place another shot. See More

We went for Easter brunch yesterday. Food eas outstanding. BUT....there was no mention of a 12.00 gratuity nowhere to be found on flyers or internet. At 30.00 per person, that was plenty to spend as i...s. Manager refused to reverse even though we pointed it was not stated anywhere. Owner literally threw 5.00 at my husband who he took from a waitress and told him to get the hell out. We've been there plenty of times before so i hope your hidden fee was worth it. Will NEVER COME BACK. See More
