We knew this restaurant back in the 1960's when it was a corner grocery store. And then they had sandwiches. And then they added a barbecue pit. And then they closed the grocery store and became a barbecue house.

It's good and inexpensive. You can google the menu. We had stuffed potatoes that lasted for 3 days because they were so big.

Queens began as a neighborhood grocery store; the owners lived upstairs. As business dwindled, they added sandwiches, then a barbecue pit. Eventually it became today's Queens Barbecue.

Google for a menu.

We had turkey stuffed potatoes, green beans, coleslaw and potato salad. So much food, we had to have a carry-out. Inexpensive, very good. Locally owned (for over 50 years). Unpretentious

Locals know about Queens. If you are visiting and interested in something non-touristy, Queens is only a half-block off the seawall.

I ordered the rib dinner, my husband the combo dinner. Both of us thought the meat was perfectly smoked. You could definitely taste the flavor of the smoke and the BBQ sauce is great as well. Rib dinner comes w/ 3 ribs and the only bummer is that one of mine was pretty crispy and not too tasty. The sides were great too--BBQ baked beans and the chile creamed corn were nice additions to an already satisfying meal. We got out of there for $20-25 (which included beers), so thought it was a great value. I would definitely come back here.

We went to Queen's as a group of 17, and we got a set of tables set up for us, a challenge as it's not that big of a place, but big enough. We ordered (it's a place where you stand in line to order and then wait for your number to be called) and got our food quickly. It's not fine dining, but the barbeque was done well. I had the ribs and got 4 of them for $9 - a perfect quantity and a great price. Others with me had pork, brisket, chicken, and all liked it.

Inexpensive but substantial servings. The jacket potato was rowing boat size and filled with cheese, smoked turkey and sour cream. Lots of locals were using it as their regular haunt and it felt friendly enough. Tables and chairs are functional rather than comfortable, but do their job.
