Their portions are large and meals are pricey. The flavor is awesome! We had the pulled pork sandwich with potato salad and beans. The beans had a weird taste, but the potato salad was also great.

Looking for a change from seafood and something a little more affordable; this is a hidden gem!! Prices are reasonable; I had the combo plate, ribs, brisket and sausage. All excellent. Wife had a HUGE stuffed baked potato. We definitely will make this a locale to visit next time were on the island.

I had the beef dip on a baked potato.... come on! It was enormous, extremely tasty, tender and came with the choice of a fully loaded potato or any combination thereof. My hubbie had the smoked beef burger (recommended by Mary, the woman we've rented the house from for the month). He loved it, enhanced it with cheese and bacon... More

We live in the city and have vowed to give this place a second chance more than once. Tonight they informed us we were going to be charged for water because they couldn't see the drink area and people were stealing drinks. He told us not to share a drink. Share a drink??? This is like a high school cafeteria.... More

I usually frown on saucing up the meat (usually to cover for lack of smokiness/rub), but the sauce here is unique and very flavorful, with an interesting combo of vinegar, black pepper, and "smoke". The ribs were okay, the pulled pork excellent (it was moistened with the sauce). I thought the ribs came with plenty of sauce, so paying for... More

It looks rough around the edges, but overall pretty good. Being a first timer, a young gal at the counter helped me order. She suggested the stuffed potato. It was delicious! The place is priced right, but why do you have to pay extra for sauce? I didn't have any, but the stuffed potato didn't need it. I would go... More

I grew up eating BBQ. I know great. I know good. I know mediocre. And I know bad. Queen's was good. (Definitely way better than anything I could ever find in Dallas.) I had the pork. It was smoked just right and the sauce was good. The problem is I like extra sauce. I am used it being on the... More

I'm a native Texan and LOVE BBQ. Queens is by far the best BBQ on the Island and there portions are large and price is good! My favorite is the chopped beef sandwich with potato salad. Yummy!!!!!!

This is my favorite place for BBQ on the Island. Tucked away one block from the seawall it is not always found by the tourist and lots of locals go here for their BBQ fix. The usual selection of BBQ meats and sides with great stuffed baked potatoes and killer peach cobbler. Casual counter service. Drop in and chow down.
