Heaven on a Plate

This place has some of the best BBQ ribs I have ever eaten. They are meaty and perfectly smoked. My husband and I first had them last summer at their food truck parked at Shindig on the Green. We like them so well that we stopped at their restaurant in Swannanoa to get ribs to take home. Also... read more

Meat tender and tasty but the bun was soggy and just didn't compliment the meat. A toasted and denser bun would have made a big difference.

A lunch special consisting of a BBQ pork sandwich, baked beans and an iced tea cost over $10 and wasn't worth half that amount. The pork was bland and cooked to an almost mushy texture and the beans were no better than a can of Campbells. When you want good Carolina BBQ don't look here.

Loved this place! The waitress was personable and helpful. Food was delicious- generous portions. Tender ribs, juicy pulled pork (not dry, I mean). Yummy corn bread and sides. Nothing fancy here- but who wants fancy when you're eating BBQ?? We liked this place so much, we bought t-shirts!

Q is fantastic. Wings are awesome - smoked first, then fried. Lucked into it from the sign on interstate. So glad we found it!

They have enough variety to give you options. The atmosphere is nice, they have an outdoor patio that I like. The staff is extremely friendly.
