Whiskey River BBQ & Honky Tonk
Ala Carte Entertainment is proud to announce the opening of Whiskey River BBQ & Honky Tonk, a classic American restaurant, bar and entertainment venue with a twist. Located in the Mount Prospect neighborhood at 702 N. River Road. Whiskey River is a 6,000 square-foot two-story establishment that boasts two 30-seat 30- foot island bars. There is seating for over 300 diners within the two floors and alfresco drinking and dining is available in our comfortable outdoor garden. "The new Whiskey River has a chef driven American BBQ and comfort food menu, served in a fun, high-energy atmosphere," says Mark Hoffmann, who along with Fred Hoffmann owns and operates Moretti's Ristorante & Pizzeria, The Snuggery and dozens of other restaurant concepts in the Chicagoland area. "Whiskey River has an unique blend of charm, great food, hip music and a fun atmosphere that makes it the ideal neighborhood spot to unwind."

Whiskey River will be open daily for lunch at 11am and keeps buzzing after work for happy hour, dinner and late night entertainment until 4am on the weekends and 2am Sunday through Wednesday. Our menu will feature American BBQ favorites and originals, plus contemporary cocktails at prices you can't believe with friendly, attentive service. The menu offers made-from-scratch favorites like our signature Pig Roast Style Pulled Pork Sandwiches and Dinners, Fall-off-the-Bone BBQ Ribs, Low and Slow Roasted Beef Brisket, our Notorious Redneck Tacos served on Cornbread Hoe-cakes, and Towering Southern Fried Chicken & Waffles drizzled in Vermont maple syrup. "We proudly source our meats and produce from local farms whenever possible," says Hoffmann. The menu also offers shareables, featuring Fireball Whiskey Wings, Fried Green Tomatoes, Jalapeño-Cheddar Corn Bread and Whiskey River's famous homemade Pulled Pork BBQ Nachos. The menu also offers sweet treats such as a Hot Fudge Waffle Sundae and Key Lime Pie. All menu items will be available for carry out. For larger groups, Whiskey River will be offering Party Packages of our BBQ and other entrée items. See our menu for details.
