Half Liter BBQ & Beer Hall 5301 Winthrop

You may remember the 2 reviews of Liter House. One solo and one a few months later with Pat. Well this is the long anticipated Beer Garden and BBQ joint built on the back of the Liter House. It is a large space with an upstairs bar and the menu is all about smoked meats.

They serve the food on a paper lined school lunch tray and give you paper plates to plate your food.

Pat ordered from the combo section of the menu. One meat 2 sides for $13.95 I am afraid I did not do a very good job highlighting his brisket in the picture. I did what I could with cropping the picture but the only thing that really shows well are his sides.

I had to try their ribs so I went to the From the Smoker section where they sell their meats by the quarter pound. I don’t usually think of ribs by the pound but by the bones so I had to guess one pound would be approximately one half rack. That was 14 bucks and I splurged on Pat’s dime and ordered a side of Collards for $4.

Wow. As someone younger might say. These ribs are Fire. Tender and a great smoky flavor. They had a beautiful smoke ring. I really should have taken a picture. Both meats are placed on top of a slice of white bread. I used mine to sop up the liquor from the greens. Not as good as corn bread but it worked. As for the greens they were very tasty, not as much meat as I am accustomed to ( a few pieces of bacon) but they had a deep flavor with a nice vinegar tang in the broth.

All of the smoked meats are served without sauce. They offer 3 sauces. A sweet sauce, a mustard sauce and a “hot” sauce; which tasted like a combo of steak sauce and a Louisiana hot sauce.

This place is the coolest of all Sahm’s spots. Well to me it is. You get Liter House and Big Lug beer plus some of the best BBQ in the city. Be advised they have a special board inside which features the Special of the day plus the veggie, soup and fish of the day. Just in case you don’t want BBQ. I can certainly see myself going back. Trust me though it won’t be on a bike.

  1. Wow, that does look legit. I mean fire. It all looks lit, the opposite of processed frozen food. Authentic meat and sides.

    • Amen. Did you look at their menu? They have so many good things to eat and drink. They have Frito pie and a frozen Thin Mint White Russian cocktail. I am so happy that they are less than 3 miles away.

      • I did. I like the rotary phone. I’ve never seen corn cake and jam as a side. I’d have to get the combo meat platter just to sample a lot.

      • I saw a hunk going to another table. It was a 6 inch square piece; enough to share. They also sell hush puppies with pimento cheese and bacon jam. Now that is a snack.
