Good home cooking with food from the grill pit - giant chicken wings, pulled pork platter and lots more with two big side dishes included. Mac and cheese is delicious, spicy cole slaw. The band that night was excellent, called NxStage, covering Chrissie Hynde, Pat Benetar, Rush, Stones and interesting selections from lesser known bands like the Tubes. Great lead... More

Very awkward experience where I was told I couldn't get a drink at happy hour prices because I was using a livingsocial deal for my dinner with a friend. Suzy was very adamant that they even though they were completely separate transactions, I had to pay full price at the bar. I hope it was worth the $2 you saved... More

Went with friends to SuzyQue's on Saturday night. The atmosphere is casual, loud, and very busy. I would say no kids after 9:00. There is music and it's very loud. I order a half rack of ribs, that are prepared with rubs for flavor. The BBQ sauce is on the table so you can put as much or as little... More

Well, from the website you would think you are going to have the best BBQ in the world but what you actually get is far from it. My father told me, "How can a BBQ place be good if you pass by it and don't smell BBQ"? Sadly he was very right in the case of Suzy Que. Now, service... More

My wife and I both had a full rack of ribs. They were served within a few minutes (thought that was weird) and were not hot, in fact, just warm. Will not return for an encore; just not worth it.

Went to SuzyQue's because I had a Groupon. I glad I did. It is a laid back place, but I think that was because of the time of day. We ordered the Wings & Tips and the Combo plate. You also get 2 sides with each meal. The food was delicious. There are 4 sauces to choose from. The sides... More

Thankfully I didn't go for the food. It was a convenient spot to meet a friend for dinner. The food just wasn't my taste; greasy mac and cheese , watery collards, and baby back ribs and no sauce ( they had sauce , very watery and tasteless). The best thing was a small corn bread muffin. The service was also... 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.
