You are never a stranger but a long lost friend when you enter this restaurant. All sandwiches are made to order with fresh ingredients.

Eat here often for lunch. Awesome home cooked meals and Walt's homemade bread is fantastic Make sure you get a brownie to have for dessert later.

Q's is a true family operation. Chef Walt prepares everything fresh every day and his wife Annette (she's Q) is out front greeting and serving their customers. They don't do breakfast or supper but this is the place for lunch whether you're downtown or anywhere else in Galesburg.

Stopped in for lunch and the famous "inside out brownie" after tour of Knox College. Turkey sandwich, the bbc sandwich and Cuban bean and rice soup all wonderful. Annette was great help when our flights back to Denver were cancelled and we ended up rebooking on the Amtrak back to Denver. Comfortable welcoming place where we made all our arrangements... More

I love Q's! It''s a fun cafe to eat in on Main Street in Galesburg. Everything is homemade and you have to have their brownie desserts. This summer they featured a rhubarb cheesecake that was so delicious!!! If you need something special, they always try and work with you to meet you needs. Love going to Q's!

This is my go to place for delicious lunches. Every item on the menu is a culinarily masterpiece. The bread pudding is the best I have ever had, and the turkey sandwich on fresh made bread and cranberry mayonnaise is astonishing.

Q's is an unassuming little cafe, with limited hours and a pretty small menu. It's also one of the best places to grab lunch in town. The owners are incredibly sweet and will go out of their way to help you--Annette once improvised a meal for me because I don't eat meat. This is really such an amazing restaurant. Big... More

For having a narrow window of operation hours Q's makes up for it with delicious handmade sandwiches and incredibly friendly service. This place is the epitome of a local "mom 'n pop" sandwich shop. The establishment is quaint and easy to miss if you aren't looking for it. "Must try's" include the roast beef sandwich and their famous brownies. Never... More

I work several blocks from Q's and come here for lunch on occasion. Owners are extremely friendly and the food is always outstanding. If you are looking for a deli type lunch, this is the place in Galesburg. Love the horseradish sauce on the roast beef sandwich.
