17th Street Grill: Home of BBQ Champ Mike Mills
When we stumbled upon the 17th Street Grill in Marion, IL we had no idea of Mike Mills’ status as a legendary BBQ cook. We were just looking for a good bite to eat close to our hotel. When we walked in the door, we were greeting by walls of his accolades and mentions in nationally-known publications from Food & Wine to Vogue. This guy knows his stuff (check out all of Mike Mills’ credentials)!
Like with most southern BBQ restaurants, the sides don’t play second fiddle. My husband liked the beans (not the canned stuff) and the kids liked the Macaroni and Cheese.
For lighter appetites like my own, I’d highly recommend the ribs sampler. They were a delicious way to taste what Mike Mills is known for, and the onions served with them were delicious too.
