i visited saturday night with out-of-town guests who wanted great BBQ. i have been to QCQ many times and have always loved it. this visit will probably keep me from coming back. someone had rented out the whole dining room so we waited for a high top in the bar. a small group of drunk men were so obnoxious to...

Stopped in here after a ride on the Funny Bus for takeout. I can't recommend the pulled pork platter enough. Best mac and cheese and baked beans around too! Tasty assortment of barbecue sauce on bar that bartender will give you a cup to take whatever you want for your food.

Service is good here and so is the food. The atmosphere is rather like a sports bar. The sauces offered are rather thin; I prefer a thicker sauce but that is just personal preference. There is nothing at all wrong with the taste. They offer a nice selection of side dishes. We would probably visit again if in the area.

I was craving BBQ since hitting the state, and finally towards the end of our trip I was able to satisfy that craving. There really was quite a number of options. You could get meat only, sides only, a combo of meat and sides, plus a variety of non-BBQ options. I had eyes only for the BBQ menu so we... More

Stopped in at Queen City Q for the first time after a great play at Booth Theater. "Lots" of beer choices including a wonderful stout that we both enjoyed. Our "snack" of choice was chips and guacamole! Good choice...plenty of chips and tasty guacamole. Service was very attentive...beer excellent and appetizer tasty. Conveniently located in Uptown...right next to Seventh Street... More

The service was great even late at night. I got a yummy dinner salad and it was really good. My husband got a dinner salad and I think onion rings. My son-n-law got a huge plate of nachos with brisket. All seemed to be really good food. Not a lot of choices for a vegan but there were defiantly some.

I was in Charlotte for a business trip and found this place through Yelp. It was a very busy night as there was a game a the Spectrum Center nearby. I had the ribs without sauce, which is the real test of good ribs. They were delicious. The dinner was so good, that I went back the next night and... More

Been here multiple times and in my opinion this is still the best bbq restaurant in the city center area. I usually get the ribs with the mac'n cheese and hush puppies. The food is just amazing and the service is fairly good although I'm usually just picking up as opposed to sitting in but when I do the service... More

really a super restaurant. Great service and great beer selection! The BBQ is worth the stop Had a nice selection of sides that were all done right. Collards, mac n cheese, pimento cheese! Yummy! Smoked sausage and brisket were big hits with our group. Good homemade black bean burger for the vegetarian ~
