“Brisket and a beer.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

The location is tough for parking. walk in, seat yourself and grab some of the free cornbread appetizer, which is almost like corn pudding it is so rich. They have a great selection of beer (and other drinks) and the brisket sandwich and pulled pork sandwiches are great. Top quality BBQ. Downsides: I thought the ribs were a little tough and the seating and tables are cheap and sort of uncomfortable. In sum, well worth the visit, would be five stars if it had a better interior and seating (but of course that is not why you seek good BBQ), better / more accessible parking, and outdoor seating not on the very car traffic road (or some plants as a barrier), and the ribs were better. But heck, as of today, best BBQ in the town limits.

“the second trip was terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

This was my second trip to the Q Company. The first time I was there the food was great but I had a problem with children of the staff all over the place ang screaming and playing inappropriately and that was OK. This second time the ribs were very good but the mac and cheese that we paid 4.50 for was terrible. It had been made with moldy cheese! Really!?!? I cant believe any cook much less a chef would serve that. We will not be back.

“Best BBQ but with one word of caution...get there early. Tonite they ran out of beef ribs one hour into Saturday nite dinner ser”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012 via mobile

Best BBQ really doesn't seem adequate to describe the flavor symphony you'll get here. I decided to visit after reading an article about the place the paper that mentioned the chef had competed (and won) one of those tv cooking reality shows, judged by the likes of Chef Ramsey and the Iron Chef! Really!

The beef rib is something out of a Flintstone cartoon...a 10 inch long "short rib" with a hefty amount of meat (you could order 2 or 3 ribs but one probably satisfy most diners). It was fall off the bone delicious though not for someone who's calorie counting...but heck those folks wouldn't likely be hanging out here anyway! The three sauces were delicious. The mustard sauce best with the beef rib, the Carolina with the pulled pork and the sweet tangy with pretty much anything.

The sides were excellent. How can I say this...the beans were incedible but quite spicy...I found them too firey to my taste but couldn't stop eating them!

They would have gotten all fives in my review but tonite, my third visit and first dinner service was disappointing. I came for their beef rib but by 6pm they had already run out. The backup pork ribs were so fall off the bones that when they arrived they looked more like a pile of pulled pork with bones mixed in (still moist and delicious). Service was painfully slow. I had to wait 15 minutes just to get a soda refill.

I highly recommend this best anywhere BBQ but recommend going at lunch when its slower and there is a better likelihood that the kitchen is fully stocked. You'll love it!
