Good flavor, but meat was tough and dry, mac n cheese was gritty. Drinks were good. Best part was the warm towel at the end.

Anytime I visit Chicago I always make sure I visit Q-BBQ. The meat here is always tender and they have a wide variety of side dishes to go along with it. This place never disappoints!

We just got our food delivered, so I've never been in the place. The food got there in a timely manner and everything was just as we ordered. The food itself was delicious. The portions were good sized too.

I've enjoyed this restaurant for lunch and I've tried American bbq for the first time in my life! The meat was good and the Mac n cheese excellent!

Went here for the first time this past weekend. Great food, good portions, and a nice, relaxed atmosphere. While I anticipated the meats, the hushpuppies were a nice surprise!

Prices not the lowest, but you're paying for the service and attention to detail. Great food and it came out quick. Was my second time here, but first time shooting out a review on it. Would recommend.

If you like dining in a "cafeteria", then perhaps you'll be up for this place - This was a disappointing discovery. While the food was ok, I just couldn't get over the "fast food" feeling and the coldness of the room.
