I wanted very much to love this place. The BBQ I grew up loving in my home town had a wonderful vinegar based sauce. The reviews for this location suggested I might find something similar here. I will refrain from saying this is good or bad BBQ since it's obvious everyone's taste for Q varies from one person to the other. I ordered a BBQ plate which came with fries, slaw and hushpuppies.
First to pros: The hushpuppies were hot, fried to perfection, light with a great flavor and not greasy. To me they were the best of the four items I ate. The service was nice and friendly, and my cup of tasty sweet tea was kept filled. My food was delivered to the table about 4 minutes after I placed my order. The chopped BBQ meat was very tender with no fat mixed in.
Cons: Unfortunately I could not taste any smoke in the BBQ because the strong vinegar sauce overpowered everything else. The sauce I grew up loving was made with several items including white distilled vinegar. The sauce here tastes like apple cider vinegar with few other spices that I could taste. The meat was quite dry. I looked on the table for additional sauce of any sort that might add moisture to the meat but there was none available. The flavor of the slaw also seemed overpowered with a strong vinegar based sauce. The fries were room temperature and had little flavor. I think they would have been much better had they been hot.
It is apparent that a lot of folks like the Q here, so please don't use my experience to keep you from trying a meal here. I think every BBQ place is worth trying at least once! Sadly this isn't my kind of BBQ and therefore I likely will not be returning.
The menu consists mainly of BBQ, burgers and hot dogs. If you're not hungry for one of these three items, you might want to go elsewhere.
I like the character of this restaurant. It is kind of small and dated but I did not see anything worn out or broken. My booth was very comfortable.
