“Great BBQ in Leesburg...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Q has "fall off the bone" tender pork ribs. We've had all of the dishs, including sides, and everything's been great. You have to enjoy a few cakes of corn bread...awesomely moist. The beans are spiced to the max...not hot spicy...just loaded with flavor. The only ding is the wine selection's sparse, but hey, why drink wine with your BBQ, right? Way better than Red, Hot, and Blue.

“Finally, BBQ in Leesburg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

This is a VERY cool spot with a great selection of beers and BBQ in which you can taste the smoke. I had the pulled pork, smoked sausage, and the beef brisket - all excellent. The cole slaw was great. Mac & Cheese - adult (kids will hate it, parents will love it). Sweet potato fries were fantastic. Two let-downs: (1) The carolina sauce is terrible - I worked in North Carolina and had some great Carolina sauce - this one sucked. (2) No "real" french fries. Other than that, the beers were great, the food was great, and the open garage like atmosphere was perfect.

“Great local BBQ joint.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

It is hard to find a good rib that is not slathered in sauce. But The Q has one!! Great flavor with a good rub, not over cooked. Loved the bark in the pulled pork. Good variety of sauces; sweet and heat.

“Friendly place, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Had a great potato loaded with spicy BBQ beans, beef brisket and coleslaw. The cornbread was more cake like than I prefer it, but everyone else at the table loved it. The service was friendly and quick. I ordered carryout to take home to the family for dinner and it was ready when I was. Parking can be a problem, but that just shows how good the place it.

“Spicy and dry”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

I can't say that I agree with most reviews on this place. The decor is nice for a BBQ place, but the food was disappointing. Sorry, but it's not enough that the cornbread is good. The ribs were too dry and too spicy. Their sausage was too spicy and looked strange. The pulled pork was decent but a little dry and the portion was small.
