It's a strip mall for foodies who don't care about ambiance - just the food. We went for lunch on Tuesday at 11:45 ... Line! Place was packed when we left. Big hit was BBQ chicken, followed by pulled pork, slaw (superb if you like vinegary), Mac and Cheese, baked beans (a tad sweet),

Our niece lives in town recommended this restaurant to us. We were not disappointed. After waiting in a short line, we ordered and sat at a table. Within a minute our food was ready. I ordered a full rack of ribs with a side of fries. They were outstanding. My wife has a pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw and black... More

We enjoy the pulled pork sandwich but feel that the side orders are overrated, especially the macaroni and cheese. You have to stand in line to order, and the decor and seating are below average. Portions are large but quality not great.

Really enjoyed the pulled pork at Community Q. It was good quality meat with no fat. I however do not care for the baked beans or fries. Both have lots of seasoning - too much in my opinion. Because I didn't care for the sides, I was still hungry and tried the Blueberry Bread Pudding. That was the best dessert... More

Ordered several hundred dollars of BBQ and mac-cheese. Was told the catering order came with buns. I asked my son to pickup the order.... No buns... latest minute scramble to pick them up.. Make sure you double check your order. Catering prices have gone up, so you can go to other places for same price and quality. We pre-tested the... More

We have been to Community BBQ a few times but this is the first time I had their Kitchen Sink Salad. It was delicious! Salad was fresh and wet - I don't like dry salad leaves - I added pulled pork and a side of mac & cheese. The salad had the following: sliced apples, pickled beets, pickled mushrooms, green... More

Dinner here tonight with a friend. We loved the laid-back atmosphere, typical BBQ joint with authentic look, feel & taste. Great smoky smell wafted out through front door. Ordered at counter, food delivered to table quickly. Very nice, efficient personnel. Brisket sandwiches served on toasted & buttered Texas Toast - to die for. The brisket was tender, with a thin...

Hadn't eaten here in several years so had lunch when in the area. My standard for a BBQ is a chopped or pulled pork sandwich which I ordered along with sweet tea and black eye peas. There sandwiches are served on toasted Texas toast and I prefer a tradition white bun. Having said that the sandwich was very good. It... More

I wanted to love this place and was excited to go. I totally expected something more and was disappointed in both the food and the atmosphere. Really there is no atmosphere and the whole experience was rather basic and not very impressive. All this could have been excused if the food measured up. Sad to say that was not the... More

As a Kansas City native, I know about BBQ. I love the brisket sandwich. You do not need any sauce on it. Also, the macaroni and cheese is GOOD. I sometimes order the redneck chicken salad which is a little different with the grapes and nuts added. I have been known to buy both and have my meals for the... More
