Perfect hole-in-the-wall BBQ joint

I'm surprised by the negative reviews, even though there are not many. I've been here at least a dozen times for lunch or dinner and have never had a bad experience. The food is fantastic and the service has always been fast and friendly. The owner always stops by the table to make sure... read more

If I could give 0 stars, I definitely would. Tonight's service was the worst we've ever had. We've been going to The House of Q since October of 2013 and never have we left so upset. Since we've started going to the restaurant, we've either had really awesome food/service or really crappy food/service. The daughter in-law that works there wears... More

This is Southern style B-B-Q in Iowa ..... If it's meat it's better here. Being a meat eater is why such a high review. I like it "Naked" so I can pick the sauce I want or try 'em all ......Very good Brisket !!

The is the real deal in BBQ. We had the 50/50 sandwiches two sides and a drink for for $12.99. The portions were huge. The BBQ Brisket was tender juicy and had great bark. The Pulled pork was succulent and also had a nice bark. The sides included homemade pie. We opted for a piece of the Makers Mark pecan... More

Bf & I went here for the first time today and we will be back! Food was phenomenal and the pecan pie was amazing. They had run out of Special Whipped Cream so they whipped us up a fresh batch. It is a little pricey but over all amazing!

Looking at the place, it looks a little run down. The menu is full of so much, so my husband and I ordered a bunch of different items to try. Prices were so cheap for the amount of food you get. Everything was so fresh and super good. The people that work there like what they do and are very... More

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
