The Q is a wonderful hole in the wall bbq restaurant for lunch while on vacation in Fort Bragg. I ordered the Texas Toast which includes Texas Toast Piled w/BBQ Beef, Cheddar & Slaw w/Choice of Side. My meal was really good.

It wasn't too bad but have had better. I'm sure it's great for some and blah for others. I would not tell anyone not to go but maybe check the menu before eating there.

Was looking forward to a great meal near the hotel only to find it closed. Amazing how things change in a couple weeks. Spent a week in Ft. Bragg and couldn't find a good BBQ anywhere.
