Stopped in on a Saturday afternoon for lunch and was very, very pleased. The pulled pork sandwich was huge and very, very tasty. The bun, definitely not the average, run-of-the mill bun. Add the cole slaw with a generous squirt of the house sauce and -- voila, near perfection. Count me as a new, regular customer.

Good barbeque, sides are only OK. Better than Dave's. Wait times can be long on Friday and Saturday.

After seeing them on Diners Drive-Ins and Dives we had to check it out. Best barbecue I have ever had! Ribs are fall off the bone and all of their side dishes are homemade. We have been there multiple times now and have never been disappointed.

We have been here many times and wanted to take some friends here. Menu on the wall when you enter and then order at the counter. You are given a number and then they bring the food out to you. Grab plates and forks and wait for your food with some free popcorn. Small dining room area with a TV... More

Came here with the family for dinner. Ordered the 2lb sampler platter. The ribs were way over seasoned. I couldn't even eat mine. The pulled pork was good, the brisket was over cooked. We really wanted to try the Ham, but they were out. We are willing to give it another try some night though.

Q Fanatic is the only MN entry in Johnny Fugitt's book The 100 Best Barbecue Restaurants in America. Living in the Twin Cities, this was the logical place to begin our nationwide BBQ odyssey. Ambience: small and somewhat cramped restaurant, with long lines at prime dinner hours. Food: the baked beans with burnt ends was a fantastic dish, The pulled... More

We arrived before the crowd so if your planning to dine in come early. It's your traditional BBQ served on platters. We ordered 2 of the 2lb deluxe samples and there was plenty of food for six with leftovers sent home. Meat was good,liked that no sauce so everyone chose what they enjoyed. For sides we had baked beans, grilled... More

Tried this place after seeing it on Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives. We had the one pound sampler with beef brisket, pulled pork and spicy sausage. The serving size was very good. Plenty for two people. Baked beans and spicy fries for sides. The food was very good but I think I was expecting more after seeing Guy rave about it... More

Although the BBQ is good, its not amazing, knock you out of your seat good. I'm not sure how they got on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives as they really didn't knock it out of the park for us our first visit, so we tried again - still no luck. The food wasn't bad by any means - just didn't get... More
