Was better when first opened

Food is decent, but taking shortcuts in food preparation. When it first opened, it served a marvelous southern fried chicken. What it serves now is more of a flattened, processed, gummy chicken plank.

I have had great fish and chips at the Southern Bistro. I have had their tilapia dish when it was "To Die for, " delicious. I have gone back the next time, and the fish was tiny little scraps of fish in burned cocoons, and the talapia not up to par. Consistency seems to be an issue. The wait staff... More

We ate here on a Monday night, so it was very quiet with just another couple of tables occupied. Service was really quick, we both had the sirloin steak dinner. Both were really tender and no fat or gristle to deal with. Drinks were standard bar prices and the final tab was very reasonable. OK, so it's not fine dining,... More

We had lunch at Q's during a recent visit to Silver City. My partner and I both had a burger. Delicious! And the fries are wonderful too. Next time we're in town we'll go back for dinner - lots of wonderful dinner options on their menu.

You know things aren't going to go well when they tell you to leave upon sitting down. We were seated only to be told there would be a cover charge for a fight we had no interest in watching. They said ok but we would need to hurry. Ok. We order and all but 2 meals come out. 30 min... More

The staff was very friendly, but the food was just o.k. If I'm in the area again I wouldn't go out of my way to stop back in. That said it's not the worst food ever, just a little bland. I had the feta ravioli...I didn't taste feta as the cheese and I had to add crushed red peppers and... More

I'd like to add some commentary to reviews on the food but after waiting for almost an hour and a half - I got nothin. Literally. Potential patrons beware. If the place is crowded prepare for a long long long dining experience.

We got there and waited a bit finally sat where ever we wanted the menus were a bit dirty and our iced tea tasted funky so we sent it back and asked for soda instead, we started off with hot wings they were the tiniest wings i've ever seen the ribs made everything a million times better!

They had a live DJ, the beer was excellent, but we didn't like the pizza we had there. It didn't live up to other green chili pizza's we had throughout New Mexico. They tried though, and there was a very nice lady there that made us want to eat there and we appreciate your kindness towards us.
