Delicious all the time

Everything I've had has always been so great I want to keep eating even when I'm full. Very nice atmosphere inside as well everyone is always friendly.

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

Best corn bread ever! Pulled pork and sausage sandwiches also very good. Amazing service!! I would highly recommend. Not fine dining, but great food.

Very plain unassuming place very friendly service and excellent food we all loved our orders. I was also pleased that they had some local beer available. Reasonable prices will definitely go again

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 Fire and Ice...

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
