This was our first visit to the House of Q and we were pleasantly surprised. You place your order at the counter and find a table to sit down - you do not have a waitress. The atmosphere is just ok but the food makes up for their casual style. We ordered the chicken and ribs. We chose the baked... More

The brisket was amazing. The sides we got (fried pickles and mac and cheese balls) probably would have been really good, but they tasted like they were fried in old oil. I really liked all of their bbq sauce options. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. We also got our food quickly, and it was very reasonably priced... More

The place isn't much to look at, but you will feel welcome, have great BBQ, and if you don't go away full with change in your pocket I would be surprised. Great food Great value

We used to love The House of Q but had a terrible experience the last time we went. I was with a group of 8 people and understand it can be difficult to get the timing right when it comes to bringing food out. 4 of us received our food right away and the other 4 ended up waiting approximately...

I enjoyed pulled pork sandwiches from this fellow back when he had a mobile operation and expected his restaurant to be the same. Perhaps it IS, depending on when you go there, but I would say while he knows how to make good BBQ, running a restaurant is another challenge - one that needs some work. Both of us felt... More

I've eaten here twice and both times I have taken my food to go, So I can't comment on the atmosphere or service but the food is pretty good. I had brisket both times and it was good. It had a nice flavor, good portion for the price, but it was slightly dry. The sauce I had with it was... More

Give this place a try. You will not be disappointed unless they are out of whatever menu item you ordered.

This place used to be awesome, but now that they have been open awhile everything has slacked off and gone down hill. My kids wanted a burger and what they got was a reheated burger. It was so tough they couldn't eat it. My husband had the heaven on a bun and he said that it wasn't what it used... More

My wife and I served 50+, people with the help of The House of Q, after my mothers burial service and don't have any complaints. Large portions (enough for a smaller dinner afterwards) and great on-time service. Everyone coplimented on how good everything was especially the pulled pork.
