Abe’s Hideout and Saloon

200 W Main St
Mechanicsburg, 62545
This place is a gem, I'm so glad it was brought to my attention by a friend. The lunch menus aren't too impressive in my view, but we've gone for dinner several times and the kindness of the staff coupled with the talent and love of the chefs make this place a serious winner. Good soup, steak, sides, and the special pork ribs are particularly amazing. Go out of your way and find this hole in the wall, you'll be glad you did. Update 4/17/2015: My wife and I have been trying quite a few new restaurants around Central Illinois. some have been good, some have been absolutely horrible and disappointing. Well, last night we both had a craving for Abe's Hideout. It was so, so, so good. We really needed a win and Abe's came through with flying colors. The steak, Harold's ribs, baked beans, au gratin potatoes, soup, it was all so good. Thanks, Abe's!
Went on Saturday evening with friends. BBQ ribs are fantastic! They smoke them outside. I had steak which was also very good. Our server was as nice as can be and the cook who smoked the ribs was very interested to know whether they met expectations. Only setbacks were that we were seated by the door and had to shoo away flies. When a crowd came in, it got very noisy. And something went down the wall next to where my husband was sitting which was a little unnerving. I just got a glimpse, I hope it was just lint. It is worth going for the food. I just recommend sitting towards the back
This place is simply ah-maz-ing! Great hospitality, delicious food and cozy atmosphere. Harold is a magician of the kitchen...and smoker. Best ribs I've had I a very long time and the bone in ribeye seasoned perfectly and very juicy. Great first impression. We will be back!
