We stopped at this place based on some reviews we had read indicating great barbecue. In a word it was just terrible. The man who,took our order could have cared less about waiting in us... very curt and uninformed.. more focused on his i phone than customers. Then the food itself was totally tasteless ... we took a few bites... More

I'm not sure what everyone calls BBQ here, but this isn't it. My husband and I tried the baby backs, corn bread, Mac n cheese, potato salad and baked beans and they all were very bland and lacking flavor, Really disappointed to spend that much money and not be happy...have no idea how this got so many stars on trip...

This is one of our favorite haunts in Ft. Bragg. This low key, no-frills little stand delivers some seriously awesome BBQ. The ribs are tender and meaty and the other meats are equally delicious. Lots of sides, too. And good prices for the coast.

Been there a few times because we really enjoyed our first and second experiences. The baby back ribs and the blackened fish were superb. Q sauce is excellent. However the last time we visited in July the ribs were probably smoked the day before, refrigerated and then microwaved. They were dry and too chewy. The place goes from a 5... More

Weighing the other reviews we gave this a try for dinner last night. We were both disappointed at the meal we received. We opted to share so got to try two - the Big Q was hard to cut and was only an ok sandwich. I did like the flavor of the coleslaw... We got a rib basket - 2... More

I recently stepped out of my comfort zone of hamburgers and pizza and tried BBQ. This place was on the main drag just south of the Noyo bridge. Food was good, price was good, not a fancy place

A very unassuming eatery on the main drag in town. Though not big on atmosphere, The Q serves up some surprisingly tasty barbecue. The pulled pork sandwiches, loaded with slaw are delicious. Mac and cheese and other sides are all reasonable and very tasty. Lunch specials include soda and a side for $2 more and makes this spot a great... More

Chowder was rich, creamy, and clams were large and succulent. A little goes a long way! Ribs peeled off the bone, tender and flavorful. Many other offerings available, all delicious, I am sure

We had actually driven past this little place before we found it. We love BBQ and will try any restaurant that offers it. As mentioned by others, the food is ordered at a counter and then brought to your table. The whole operation has a food truck quality about it but don't let that get in the way of enjoying... More

We had salmon, fish sandwich, brisket & sausage. All the meals were hot and tasty. Our only negative were sides ( fries were greasy, beans were ok but not great, onion rings looked amazing but lacked flavor) having said that the Main dishes were some of the best fast food we have had in weeks.
