A Hidden Gem

Suzy Q's is a place you could easily drive by. Nondescript and small, the place serves some of the best BBQ in the area. From chicken, ribs and pulled pork to fish and sausage, the food is all extraordinary. Don't forget the sides. Oh my gosh! The corn bread is honestly the best I've ever had. The... read more

I've been wanting to try this place for ages and Im so glad I finally did. It's located on Niagara St, just across the border in Tonawanda. It's about as unassuming a building as you can imagine, but that's how you know it will be good. There aren't many booths or tables and I imagine they can get pretty busy.... More

Went here because we saw it was rated well on TripAdvisor and couldn't agree more. The food was absolutely amazing (great barbeque, homemade sauces, perfectly cooked), the staff was super friendly, and the price was spot-on. If you've never been here, you should definitely check it out. 2 thumbs up!

I have been to just about every top Barbq place in the country and for me their pulled pork is the best I have had. Smoked chicken thighs are also top notch. Ribs are not bad. Piggie pie is out of this world, you have to top it with cole slaw to get the full effect.

First off, call early (like around noon) to place your order for pickup for dinner, or place it the day before. Once they are out of something, they are out. Second, Sue seems like a top notch lady, and she knows her stuff. My husband and I shared brisket, ribs, and chicken thighs. Everything was great - if you like... More

We went with 2 adults and 3 small children. I called ahead since it was close to closing time and I wanted to be sure they still had food! When we arrived, Suzy had a table all set up waiting for us. She couldn't have been nicer, explaining the different menu options and taking her time to be sure we... More

Our party all had ribs. They were delicious!! They offer their homemade sauce. Owner explains each of the three sauces. Sides to choose from as well. Very down to earth place, nothing fancy. Pricing I thought was a bit high, but ribs were outstanding. $24 for a full rack. One can order smaller portions. The building could use some updating... More
