Stopped in for a late evening cocktail & snack. We were quickly seated at the bar which provides a great opportunity to watch the bartenders make some fun & inventive cocktails. Ordered some appetizers to snack on - the wings & fried green tomatoes were great! Would definitely go back!

First we went during a large convention in town and we asked for a reservation for 10 people the same morning and they accommodated us. On arrival the table was ready and we had no wait which is a rarity during such busy times. That efficiency continued throughout the night. Known for their BBQ I took the competition ribs. This...

From the outside the place is a bit misleading as it seems as you enter that you think you're going into a high-end BBQ establishment, but once inside it all comes together. The place is a good size, with the bar in front and the main dining in the back. The menu is not large but offers enough for most.... More

Stopped in at lunch, and secured a nice table by window. Upon being seated, fresh made chips and pickles are served to the table. These were outstanding and FRESH! I got the pulled pork w/ cornbread and hush puppies (lunch price fixed). What a value! All for $16! Couldn't believe this place. Great food, terrific service. Definitely will go back!

Wow, my mouth waters just thinking about our experience here. It was amazing. The ribs may be the best I've ever had. That huge rack of competition baby back ribs stared at me and challenged me to go ahead. Oh, and I did. The most tender, fall off the bone, meaty ribs this boy has ever had. Holy crap. Trust... More

I ordered the BBQ shredded pork sandwich and was shocked when it arrived. It was huge and I regretted that my husband and I did not split it. You are given 4 or 5 sauces to put on the pork, and we liked the traditional sauce the best. It was very good...not the best BBQ that I have had, but... More

I'm confused over whether this Q is related to the other Q restaurants in the suburbs - it's menu is a bit different, but spirit is the same. The location is delightful - a quaint spot with outdoor seating and heaters to keep you cozy. I love that you can go old south and sticky fingers in the swanky gold... More

Had a great meal here while visiting Chicago. Call to RSVP on the weekend, but as walk-ins we were seated in 15 minutes. Nice chatty atmosphere. Not your place if you're looking for an intimate setting.

Met friends here for last night in Chicago meal and were really impressed! I went for the competition ribs as I love BBQ and saw they were the chefs favourite. They were amazing, never had ribs like them before - so tender! Staff were nice and friendly - said our accents were adorable :) Bar was cool as well, with... More

Please be careful in this restaurant because you can get carried away and order almost everything and anything which we almost did!!! Chicken, pulled pork, sausage or the ribs!!! Hmmmm!!! Luckily our waiter took the time to explain the difference between the various ribs and combination meals and I opted for the two pulled meats plus half St Louis slab... More
