Stopped in here for some BBQ while in town for a convention. The pulled pork platter was a great value. It tasted great and was served really fast. Good stuff.

You can smell the smoked ribs from outside and it's awesome! The okra and string beans are great side dishes for your ribs!

This was my first time in Downtown Charlotte, and a family member we were staying at recommended the place. I have to say that we all enjoyed our food. The service was prompt, and our server was great explaining the menu. I had the Southwestern Salad and I would definitely recommend it.

Queen City Q is the best by far, I am very picky about my bar b que. The smoked jerk wings and the St. Louis ribs platter are my favorites. The location is perfect, uptown and on the Lynx Blue Line, and the staff is always awesome. I have been a patron of Queen City Q for 5 years. Bring... More

This was our first visit to Charlotte and because we stayed at a Downtown area hotel after checking in we set our search for "Something Good" to eat. So we passed by the Queen City Q restaurant and noticed a sign on the outside that said something to the effect of "Best BBQ" and my response was - Yeah Right!... More

We enjoyed everything we had. Pork sandwhich and BBQ tacos, the cream corn side called something special was really good along with Mac and cheese.

Went as a family and enjoyed brisket tacos, pulled pork and hush puppies. There are 5 types of BBQ sauces on the table to try and we sampled them all with our pulled pork. We each had a different favorite but all enjoyed the meal!

I searched online for bbq restaurants that were not far from the airport on the way home from the beach. We were not disappointed! All of the meats were tender and very tasty. Pulled pork is a specialty here and it was excellent. Ribs were meaty. Sausage was also very good and flavorful. We will make time to stop here... More
