What began as a mutual love of BBQ became a vision and then a reality as Jimmy Jo's BBQ opened in 2008 in Bourbonnais, IL by friends Jim Johanek and Lloyd Kemble.  Jimmy Jo's BBQ specializes in authentic slow-smoked southern BBQ using the finest dry-rubbed meats smoked for hours over apple and hickory wood.

Jimmy Jo's goal is to bring the best of BBQ to south Chicagoland in a fun, welcoming atmosphere that can be enjoyed by everyone. Come in and try some Texas-style ribs or some of the best brisket you will ever have outside of Texas! Jimmy Jo's should not be missed if you are a fan of great "Q". You will not be disappointed!
