I grew up in Syracuse when the Dinosaur was still a hole in the wall and the food was honest and not owned by George Soros. Capital Q comes close to those halycon days. Great food, good value. I wish they'd come to Guilderland so you could sit down, but it is really a take out place. And if you don't like the coleslaw, man up and ask for another side. Frankly, I love the jalapeno mac n cheese, the greens, and the red hash

The Okie beef and pig are very good, but the Okie chicken was very dried out. The Okie beef and burnt ends was enjoyable, but some of the sides weren't. Skip all the mac-n-cheeses. The coleslaw is okay, but it's the same stuff you get anywhere, so I doubt it is made fresh. The croakers ( mashed potatoes fried) are good for kids. The neighborhood is not good and you don't want to eat there. There is only a counter and a few stools. So you have to just pick-up, but they put everything into 1 container with no dividers, so your food all gets mixed in together.

WONDERFUL food. Great vibe. Fast delivery. Not a chain. The only "problem" is they don't take credit cards.

I love BBQ, but this is not the place to go. Ribs are hugeee, but too fatty for me, the chicken was good, and the fries were soggy and gross. There are other places I'd rather go although I'd give this place another shot. Not in the best part of town either.
