We visited on 4/29/17 due to being told that this placed food was unbelievably good. The workers were friendly. We had a party of four 2 adults 2 children and our bill was close to 50.00. To me the food was not all that great the chicken didn't have any taste, the baked beans were overpowered by a ketchup taste,... More

This is a very clean and roomy BBQ restaurant. The pulled pork, hush puppies, and chicken wings are highly recommended for any BBQ chaser!!! It can be easy to miss and is located in the strip plaza on the east side of the street.

Very nice barbeque. Fries are good. Quick meals brought to your seat although you order from a line. Try it.

We went here because of the reviews and proximity to our hotel. It didn't disappoint! The brisket, ribs, and sides were excellent. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

Q is an okay restaurant. The meat is good but the portions are small and overpriced. The kids menu is expensive for a kids menu. The sides are not the best but that is a matter of taste. It is just okay.

Have eaten there a few times and, over time, have become increasingly disappointed with the quality of the Q. Must say that I recommended the place to friends when they opened a few years ago; not on my recommendation list any more.

Friendly service and great food we tried a little bit of everything and it was all good! they have amazing wings, pulled pork, bbq chicken, hush puppies, Mac & cheese, cornbread & coleslaw!. We wish they would open up in New York! (Queens) to be exact ! Next time we are down in VA we won't skip Q Barbecue.

First the bad.... I got carry out.. but my bag had no napkins or silverware. Made the excellent greens messy to eat. Brisket was very good but I felt the portion looked small. I was full by the end. I would go again.

I eat here regularly and always good. There are several locations in the area. Be sure to try the Pineapple Hot Dish.

This place has very good barbecue! The beans and coleslaw are very good as well. One of the nicer 'fast food' restaurants!
