Southbank Original Barbecue is Yorkville’s local barbeque and southern comfort food restaurant that is known for its real slow-smoked barbecue on the banks of the Fox River. The menu features delicious specialties such as baby back ribs, tri-tip, pork belly burnt ends, jambalaya, gumbo, meatloaf, and homemade soups during the cold months and more.
We are a casual county style joint for the whole family where everything is house-made. From our barbeque that is not competition style but what you want to eat at home, cooked over oak and hickory. Our sauces are unique, house-made and self-served to your liking. Our other entrees such as meatloaf, gumbo, and jambalaya are made the way grandma used to make them. From May through October, our outdoor seating and bar are open for a relaxed and rustic dining experience along the banks of the Fox River. Our indoor dining room and bar are open year-round.
Here at Southbank Original Barbecue, we put on special events thru out the year. It all kicks off in March with our SOB 5K and St. Patrick’s Day celebration. Once the weather warms up, we have live music almost every weekend on our outdoor stage. Other events include our SOB Crawfish Boil and Coyote Ugly Night. Our outdoor season ends with our Crawl-O-Ween and costume contest at the end of October. Once we move indoors the fun doesn’t stop we have food cookoffs thru out the cold months so you can bring in your favorite recipes and compete for prizes.
