Looks like a hole in the wall, but the food is superlative...moist and flavorful meat, fantastic sides. Place is immaculate and service is friendly, knowledgeable and prompt. Went there for lunch and the place rapidly filled with locals who know a good thing. Totally unpretentious with paper plates and plastic forks, Suzy's concentrates on the barbeque which is among the... More

Went here based on local newspaper review. The food is good/sauces and sides tasty and service friendly. Nice variety and specials too. On the down sideis Styrofoam dishes/no hot beverages and no credit cards accepted. the décor is dated and the place is old and could use some better lighting. Lots of takeout seen and near a busy industrial plant.... More

Though the bbq was only ok, it was the best I found in this area. The meat was moist and had some flavor. The sauce was not bad but not to rave about. The service was good and the sides were ok. The value however was very good. I would go back, especially vs. the competition in this area.

I have heard tons about this place, and was eager to try it! It was a very casual feel in the place, very small, paper utensils. The menu had a lot to offer, and the prices were so cheap! I am in loveee with the bbq chicken, was the best I have ever had. The ribs were so tender and... More

Good ribs and relaxed location. Just 15 minutes from the city center. This restaurant is one real american restaurant, out of the main touristic route.

What I couldn't eat for lunch was my... More

The Salty Hog is a must try...the best! Generous servings, excellent food, good price, nice clean friendly place to grab a bite or take-out. I stumbled upon Suzy Q's 4 years ago, a wonderful find!I've been happy with everything I've tried. Love their bbq sauces--hard to choose just one. And the owner is very friendly, makes you feel welcome every... More

The food was excellent. It was not very busy when we went but the waitress was attentive. When we pulled in my daughter ask where I was taking them. The area and parking lot are in need of a makeover. However, inside the restaurant was very clean and neat. Everyone enjoyed their meals very much. We will go back.

Great BBQ. I would have given Suzy Q's a 5 but our waitress was completely lost. Every questions we asked was met with a blank stare before she would say "Do you want me to ask?". I should have said "Nope, Just trying to make conversation". But instead we would always say yes and she would come back with the... More
