The Story of Joe’s Barbeque & Fish


My name is Evans West, the owner of Joe’s BBQ & Fish.

I moved to Chicago in 1967, from Jackson, Mississippi. My first job was working for Zenith & Citgo Gas Station. I worked third shift for Zenith and first shift for Citgo. I worked two jobs for 5 years I left in 1974, and started working for General Mills, and I stayed there for 10 years.

In 1980, I worked for Sheriff’s Department for 3 years. With God’s blessing, I opened my first Restaurant on March 18, 1993 on the west side of Chicago (3819 W. Chicago Ave). Since then, I’ve never looked back, and now I have three locations. Welcome to my website!

We are now open - a reminder to pick-up at Hillside location. **We will be closed December 25th - 26th. Happy Holidays! Dismiss
