17th Street BBQ is a south-Illinois stronghold in the barbecue scene. Owned by champion pitmaster Mike Mills (known as “The Legend” in the barbecue world), their ribs are renowned for being some of the best in the U.S. The self-described as the “Filet Mignon of Barbecue,” they have won Grand World Champion at Memphis in May, otherwise known as “the Superbowl of Swine,” for three years running.
