I had lunch with my daughter on Sept 29th and it was yummy!!! But since, I read they have closed and for that I'm saddened! For those who haven't tried, you've lost out on a yummy meal

I have been to bbq places in the southern states and this place ranks up there with the best of them. Top 5 at least. I had a marbled brisket and while not as dry as i had hoped for, it was damn good and...More

I went in expecting to get great barbecue at a BBQ smokehouse, but left disappointed as it was just sub par food. Nothing to really jump up and down about. The pulled pork sandwhich wasnt overly great, and lacked a flavourful sauce. I've had better...More

I love the concept of Q smokehouse, the food was good but maybe not great. I was surprised how small the sides were but the dirty rice was really good and it still felt like value for money. The service and atmosphere was good. I...More

This review is pretty simple. It's a BBQ joint that lives and dies on its chicken and ribs. Four of us tried this place last weekend. Three of us had chicken, and in all cases it was dynamite. Three of us had ribs, and in...More

I took my bf here for valentine's day. entrees 15-20 for the beef/rib meals. Chicken was okay, brisket was not very tasty at all. Fries were soggy. Coleslaw tasted fishy. I'm not really a fan of the set up myself but some might enjoy it....More

Authentic southern barbeque on Argyle Street. Follow the tantalizing barbeque aroma through our front door, saunter on up to the counter and order up a po'boy, a rack of pork or beef ribs or a basket of spicy wings. And don't forget the sides - creamy mac n' cheese, fluffy yellow cornbread or maybe grilled peppers and onions to round out your barbeque feast. Patio open during summer months.
