Stellar BBQ!!! Unusual sides separates this place from the rest - and the fact that the everything is awesome!!! I'm a fan of pulled pork and they load it on - great sauces as well. Hands down the best Mac n cheese in town!!

LOVE THIS PLACE. Food is consistently fantastic. Really appreciate the sides are so much more than the usual slaw or potato salad choices. We get the brisket and sausage, but will be trying the chicken and ribs soon. We live about 35 minutes away, but never hesitate to make the drive when craving great BBQ. The ONLY negative is that...

I have been a Community Q follower for a while. However I've been disappointed that when we get the "bug" for BBQ and make the trek over to Decatur for Community Q the last several times - Usually Saturday around 6:30 or so, they are out of food! From a restaurant owners perspective its a great problem to have. So... More

My husband and I had lunch recently at Community Q. I got the brisket with a side of beets. They give you a large portion of both, enough for another meal for me. The brisket is very tender and full of flavor. The beets are roasted just right with enough sweetness that really makes them stand out. We have eaten... More

I've heard several people rave about this place so we decided to give it a try. Everything was pretty good, well above average, but the price was high compared to the little bity portions. My tab was around $27 for just me, and I'd say it was a $9 meal... 3 petite slices of Brisket and 3 small ribs a... More

One of my favorite barbecue places- but my first-time having the ribs was disappointing. I was craving their smokey-tasting barbecue, and decided to try the ribs: dry, bitter rub....no smokey flavor (in contrast to the promising aroma greeting me when I entered). The sauces on the table camouflaged the unpleasant flavor.

First time visiting but had always heard good reviews. Didn't disappoint. I marked down 1 star because the food wasn't quite as hot as would be expected. I had the pulled chicken with collards and mac-n-chz. Delicious. And service was excellent!

We ate here about a year ago and wanted to try it again. The food is still great. My wife got pulled pork bbq sandwich and I ate Brunswick stew plus sweet potato. Great food and wonderful folks that work here. Keep it up!
