For having a narrow window of operation hours Q's makes up for it with delicious handmade sandwiches and incredibly friendly service. This place is the epitome of a local "mom 'n pop" sandwich shop. The establishment is quaint and easy to miss if you aren't looking for it. "Must try's" include the roast beef sandwich and their famous brownies. Never... More

I work several blocks from Q's and come here for lunch on occasion. Owners are extremely friendly and the food is always outstanding. If you are looking for a deli type lunch, this is the place in Galesburg. Love the horseradish sauce on the roast beef sandwich.

The couple who own and operate Q's are amazing humans. They produce some of the best food in West Central Illinois if not the state. 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 bailed me out.

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
