Stopped in for lunch. They had a busy dining room with live music, and did a fine job seating us, feeding us and did it with attentive service. The food was a treat.

BBQ pulled chicken and 1/2 BBQ chicken dinners were flavorless. Mashed potatoes tasted and felt like instant. Cornbread was a total rip off, it was definitely missing at least 3 ingredients (like cornmeal, corn and sugar?!?!) It was dry, overcooked and tasteless. :( The owner, ("The Lady", as it said on our check) failed to inform us when we ordered... More

Good service. Dry rubbed ribs with four sauces, fries and a salad made for a tasty meal. Restaurant and bar were busy, noisy and alive. Not the place for a quiet, intimate dinner! But the atmosphere worked for us. Nice portions and inviting menu.

Was there on a Sunday afternoon, midway between brunch and dinner. Wait staff was friendly and helpful. Have been there several times before where the food was much superior. On this occasion, it was evident that the ribs had been reheated, and as a result dried out. That barbecue sizzle was long gone. Their array of sauces seemed rather bland... More

I've been to this establishment several times and enjoyed every aspect of it....from the food (best barbecue in NJ and ample portions), to the live entertainment, to the staff (when the owner is there, she comes to the patrons tables and introduces herself and chats a bit - very welcoming) and the service! The first time I went was with... More

On a rainy night, this was the perfect place to eat. The staff is always there to great you. The food portions are huge and the food is "to die for".

I was at SuzyQues’s last night in West Orange, NJ. It was a nice place, I liked the menus with the solid wood cover. I had the corn beef brisket and it came with 2 sides of broccoli and sweet potatoe fries. I did have sangria to drink it was fine. My guest had the ribs and creamed spinach and... More

Suzie catered an office lunch for us and we were all delighted. After trying mediocre lunch places, we decided to order a special treat for the staff. Suzie personally helped us chose the food and it arrived promptly with very generous portions of pulled pork, chicken, mac n' cheese, cornbread, and greens. I am so glad we did this and... More

In the years I've been coming to NJ, I always try to get to SuzyQue's at least once. In all my visits I've found the food consistently good, staff friendly (including chatting with the proprietor on some occasions), the bar well stocked, and the atmosphere comfortable. Last night was no exception as I tried the gargantuan beef rib. After taking... More

SuzyQue’s offers a unique blend of southern BBQ. We draw from the flavors of Tennessee, Texas and North Carolina to create our own special delicacies. We use only the finest premium meats slow smoked in our state-of-the-art smoker with our own exclusive blend of rubs made in house. All our BBQ is available dry rubbed, simply seasoned, and smoked, or with one of our homemade sauces. We are committed to using only the best ingredients and cooking low and slow with real hickory, apple, cherry and oak. In the world of BBQ the pink smoke ring is one of the most sought after properties of smoked meats and the pit masters sign of excellence.
