More amazing was the fact that when I realized that I left my wallet bsck at the hotel and had no means of paying for my meal two of their regular customers... read more

If you want a nice sandwich at a local deli in the downtown area this is a place you could definitely stop into

Q's is a great place to hang out and eat delicious food. I love that Walt and Annette chat with each person coming through the line. It's one of the places I visit with out of town friends and family.

Have eaten lunch here numerous times. Decided to review it from recent visit. Place has its regulars who take up the bar stools every day. Good roast beef and turkey with mayo sandwiches. Good soups also. Hang out for political crowd and college students. Can always count on quality.

Q's is a favorite of many in this town. People from Doctors to general public to college students alike all enjoy Walt ' s fresh foods.

Best sandwich spot in town, in my opinion. The owner, Walt, has a great menu that always has great specials for lunch. If you haven't checked out Q's, you are missing out!

Stopped in as we traveled between Springfield IL and Dubuque, IA as we were looking for a quick but not-fast-food lunch. It was that and more! We both had the BBQ sandwich with coleslaw on an onion bun, WOW! I only ate half of mine but they accomodated us with a to-go bag quickly and in such a friendly fashion.... More

Q's Cafe is a great place in Galesburg on Main Street for lunch, coffee, or a snack. Walt is an excellent chef, and Annette creates a friendly atmosphere for a relaxing experience. First time customers get a delicious free home made brownie. Try it. You'll like it.

Q's Cafe is excellent. You get in, you get your food, you get out. It is very clean and the food is, really phenomenal. The menu changes up daily and they have the most amazing homemade soups and breads. Q's is also a big hit with my kids, where they can get sandwiches such as peanut butter and honey (yummy... More
