It was a bit of a drive but I thought the BBQ was very good. They had a great selection of sauce and the coleslaw was also very good. It might not have been the best BBQ I have ever had but I would say it was very good.

Heard that this was the best barbecue place around so drive over 40 miles to check it out. While I appreciate genuine wood smoked meats I found theirs to be average in flavor but a little tough and chewy in texture. A variety of home made sauces, but not outstanding in flavor. All in all I found the food to be average and not worth going out of your way to try.

QFanatic is a very good bbq-joint for the Midwest, certainly better than the local bbq joints in my hometown. We enjoyed our meals a lot. I had pulled pork and my wife had the brisket. The sides were sizable and the Asian slaw was a tasty, non-traditional, side dish. The espresso BBQ sauce was great and the honey BBQ was very good. Service was very quick as we were served within 5-6 minutes of ordering on a Friday evening.

We went on Saturday afternoon and were pleasently surprised by the remodel. Haven't been there in a while. We had the sampler with 1lb pork ribs,beans and the best potato salad I've ever eaten! he dinner rolls are also very good. Glad we made the 25 minute trip and will be back soon.I highly recomend it to everyone.

We had the pulled pork and pulled ham since they were out of brisket, which would have been our first choice. The pork was pretty much the industry norm, which is fine. I really liked the flavor of the ham. With two soft drinks, the meal set us back right at $20 total, not bad. We decided we'd probably share a full pound meal next time instead of the two 1/3 pounders that we ordered this time so we could try two different meats.

The facility is nothing special, but adequate. You order at the counter and then serve yourself on the drinks, plastic utensils, etc. They bring your meal to you at your table and that's pretty much the end of the service, so my relatively low score in that department doesn't mean any employee performed poorly but is more a reflection that there really isn't much service, which is fine if you don't mind getting up to go refill your own drink, and I sure don't.

We'd certainly come back more often if we lived nearby. It's good, but not quite good enough to warrant a lengthy round trip.
