A word from Queen City Q
Pitmaster Dan "Boone" Gibson, grew up in Charlotte in the 1960’s and was raised on "Charlotte BBQ", a melding of styles from eastern NC, western NC and South Carolina all based on cherished family recipes. It's these recipes that Boone creates for Queen City Q. He believes great Q means the freshest, amazing meats served with homemade sauces on the side. This way you can sauce them in whatever style you want…or not. That's Queen City Q. And here...It's all about the Q. Enjoy!Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Not the best Q I've had - but still was good! Waiter handled a very large group and all left happy! Thanks..."

  • "Billed as the best BBQ in Charlotte I wonder what the worst BBQ is like. I ordered a sampler of pulled pork, smoked chicken and sausage. The chicken and sausage were just ok, but the pork was pretty lame. It was dry and looked like it had been cooked hours before and perhaps even leftover from the day's lunch service. Not impressed at all. Sauce selection was plentiful but weak. Much too thin and all were vinegar based with little differentiation, except the mustard based one. The waitstaff was not knowledgeable about the menu and the price paid for the meal was way too much based on the ROI. Would not eat here again. Also surprised these guys could secure a contract at the Charlotte sports arena in town. Fair at best bordering on poor."

  • "second time here and the food is still terrific. Their nachos are the best - three types of smoked meat...delicious. The guys got the brisket and can't wait to go back for more. The ladies loved the pulled pork and smoked chicken platters. great local beers."
