Nov. 2012 -- 19 Paul, a new barbecue restaurant at 11155 S. Vincennes, offers food that’s so good, “it should be a crime.”
Owned by Chicago Police Officer Kurrin Beamon, the restaurant offers an e...xtensive menu of home made barbecue and side dishes, all prepared from recipes handed down from Beamon’s mother and grandmother. Pork and beef brisket are smoked for a minimum of 14 hours and rubbed with a special blend of spices.
The 19 Paul menu is as fun to read as it is appetizing. Dishes are named using police terminology – Top Brass St. Louis Ribs, Beat Cop Basket (which is also offered as a “sticky fingers special”), Under Cover BBQ Chicken and many more.
19 Paul is open Mon. through Thurs., 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Fri. and Sat., 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Like them on Facebook, learn more at their website, www.19paulbbq.com. For carry out orders, call 773-445-7288. Read more
OVERALL! I was wonderfully pleased. About the Rib Tips and Shrimp Combo...the Rib Tips were kind of on the sweet side but very tender and meaty. The Shrimp were fairly big, seasoned and battered just right. Mac and Cheese...meh...there was an after taste that I couldn't identify, maybe from the cheese, milk or elbow noodle? The Sweet Potatoes...delish cut in cubes and sweet. The Greens were perfect... Corn on the Cob...on the soggy/mushy side but somehow buttery and the Corn Bread? I was very excited because it was not "corn bread" there were two perfectly made Johnny Cakes! Yeah! You know! When corn bread batter is cooked like a pancake! Will order again. Delivery guy was very nice and professional too. Oh, everything was well and neatly wrapped. I had no spills or mess..Plus!!!! 19 Paul provided plenty of wet naps....That is a + for customer service.

The food was delicious, promptly delivered. I thought there was something missing from my order, called to complain, and was treated very graciously, even after I realized I'd overlooked the item, and apologized. Definitely going to order again.
