“Unexpected treat for BBQ Lovers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Not a chain. The owners have won completions on The Food Network and you can tell - the food is delicious and distinctive. We split the BBQ sundae - a conglomeration on BBQ and sides - and it was plenty for lunch for 2 under $10.

“RESTAURANT IMPOSSIBLE...Watch it, then call Robert Irvine”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Wonder why you are NOT making money? Let's start at the beginning...

Service...Finally
Cornbread...Not bad
Pork...Out of Pork...7pm...REALLY!
Brisket...greassssssy.
Pork Ribs...Looked meaty...turned out to be mostly fat!
Beer...sort of cold.
Atmosphere...NOT for the family for sure. Lots of bar patrons and a handful really drunk at 8pm. Lots of "Fbombs" flying!

What it is...a clean place to pound beer, get drunk and wonder the next day...was it the BBQ or the beer that gave me the diarrhea.

What it is NOT...place to bring the family, a great BBQ restaurant, a place to expect excellent service.

Suggestions...Divide the bar from the dining area. Fire the bar tender. She is waaay cute but she was away from the bar eating your kitchen food while walking around your restaurant or disappeared somewhere else. She was out of the bar area for more time than she was behind it. Take the harley out of the restaurant...if it was a classic then okay...but using the dining area as a place to park your bike in the winter months...not a good idea.

Hope this helps...

“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.
