This Belleville Family Business Is Smokin’
Hicks Bar-B-Que in Belleville has all the right ingredients for a successful business – high-quality Illinois pork, a special sauce recipe, and a family-focused attitude. Longtime competitors on the competition barbecue circuit, the Hicks family wanted to open a restaurant that focused first and foremost on local product. Their claim-to-fame smoked pork ribs all come from Illinois farms, and they smoke their brisket and pork butts over Southern Illinois applewood. And with the family’s special sauce, it’s a meal to remember.
