Awesome for catered dinner!

I was referred to Suzy Q's by a friend when I was looking for food to feed a group for dinner. I was not disappointed! They were easy to contact, friendly and helpful with the suggestions and right on track with the quantities needed for this size group 30. Everyone enjoyed the food and asked where... read more

Bear in mind that BBQ is not in its natural habitat this far north. Decent brisket and pulled pork, but best bet are the ribs, considerably better than the other items. Very good slaw and mac 'n' cheese, but the beans were boring. Friendly service and a fair price.

Flavors are down home southern style. Reasonably priced and friendly atmosphere. Piggie pie is out of this world, you should top it with cole slaw to really enjoy it. 2 ways to order it - with fries or salt potatoes. It goes without saying that it is salt potatoes for me. There are a number of bar-b-que sauces to try.... More

Amazing cuisine...Hidden Gem. Who knew such a little place could produce such wonderful BBQ! Get there early cause when they run out of something its gone for the day. Lunch is a busy time. They cater too!

I have enjoyed their BBQ the last few years, have not found any item that was sub par in any way! I love the pulled pork.

I had very high hopes for Suzy-Q's based on all the amazing reviews. I've been to Kentucky Greg's and Dinosaur. I have to say I was disappointed - the brisket was pretty good but the ribs were average. Portions were large. We came in around 7pm and the next batch of ribs were just ready. Atmosphere was nice with a... More

The pulled pork is fantastic. Very tender and moist. Love their sauce options. Corn bread is the best I've had. Their Mac and cheese is absolutely delicious. Great food, and great service.

Decided to try the BBQ at Suzy Q's and loved it. Cornbread was delicious too! Very tasty sides and the BBQ was as good as ours in KY.

Living in Toronto, trips to Buffalo for cross border shopping are not unusual. However it's not the groceries or duty free or cheaper clothes, it's Suzy Q's that inspires each trip I make. The ribs are perfect, smokey but not dry. Tender but not mushy. Meat comes off the bone but still has some bite. The fried corn is surprisingly... More
