I had a great time! The food was great and brought to us quickly, and we had a very fun server for the night. I've been there before this outing, but every meal there is worth it!
We are so glad to hear you had a great experience at BRQ! Hope to see you again soon!
Shortage of waiters but they scrambled and made it work including a manger. They worked well as a team. Food portions were large and shareable. Just good food!
Thank you, Renee! We appreciate your understanding and are thankful to hear about your experience at BRQ. We hope to see you again soon!
My husband and I were excited to try this restaurant because we had heard great reviews. However, we were very disappointed. We arrived early afternoon with reservations only to have to wait for the staff to clear tables and seat us. I ordered an alcoholic beverage only to be told they were out. The appetizer of boudin balls was mediocre and dry. I ordered the Mamou Chicken, which was recommended by the waitress, only to be disappointed once again. The chicken was dry and leathery and arrived luke warm. My husband’s BBQ plate arrived the same. We had planned on ordering a dessert, but after our disappointment with the appetizer and entrees, we decided to skip it. The staff apologized several times informing us they had a busy day and that they were short staffed, however, this doesn’t negate the fact that the food was disappointing.
Great service and the food was delicious as always! Get the Carrot Cake!!
Thank you, Amy! We are so glad to hear about your experience at BRQ!
This restaurant cares about the food quality. It’s a regular for me
Thanks so much, Steven!
Never disappointed. Whether we order bbq or seafood. And the carrot cake dessert! Staff is very attentive! A must on your list of places to try and return again and again!
Thank you for the positive feedback! We hope to see you again soon!
Appetizers (meatballs and fried okra) were very filling, so four of us split entrees (tuna salad and sliders) for a delicious, satisfying meal. The smoked old fashioned was very good, and the service was perfectly attentive. thanks.
Thanks for the review! We are so glad to hear you enjoyed everything.
Very good food with excellent service.
Thanks so much for the feedback and review!
The food was amazing! The service was outstanding! Love the mimosa special. Great brunch!
Thank you for the review! We are glad you enjoyed your experience at BRQ!
Food is always great, menu is extensive and it's just a fun place to eat. Could use some new chairs - or maybe just some pads!
Thanks so much for the feedback and the review! We appreciate you:)
This is the best BBQ in Louisiana
Wonderful food and service as always! Best onion rings in BR
Thanks so much for the review!
Our new favorite BBQ restaurant! Everything was great from the service to the food. Will recommend.
Thanks so much! Looking forward to your next visit!
Good was ok but overpriced for what it was. Steak was over cooked and not even warm. Server left a lot to be desired.
Spot on every time, love this place.
Thanks so much!
Too many flies doing our outside dining every thing else was great
Prices have skyrocketed in the last month. Found plastic in the mashed potatoes.
Birthday - great time
Thank you for the review and for celebrating your birthday with us!
The food was extremely salty and this isn’t the first time we’ve had this problem. Just a disappointing experience with that and the dry barbecue.
Lisa, we are so sorry to hear this. We hope you'll give us another chance!
This was our second visit to BRQ. The first time was great. This time, not so much. The shrimp in my wife's salad were bad and very smelly. The manager and server apologized. We were treated to free dessert.
service was average at best, brisket meat was very dry. the margarita served on
the rocks was very tasty. crab empanada got mixed reviews at the table.
Thank you for the feedback although we're sorry to hear your experience wasn't excellent! We hope you'll give us another try.
The patio is so great! I love that it is partially covered.
The Brussels sprouts appetizer is delicious as is the salmon and broccoli. Several employees stopped by our table to ask how we were enjoying everything and our server was very attentive. Highly recommend!
Thanks so much for the great review! We'll share this with the team.
I had specifically requested a table and not a booth but they had given the table to othes
Laken was great, the food was awesome. The service seemed a little slow starting but we were early by about 15 minutes for our reservation.
Thank you for the review and feedback!
Great as always, staff was very attentive, and food was awesome!
Thanks so much!
I absolutely love BBQ and was so excited about our brunch plans.
We made reservations online the night before only to arrive and be told our reservation is for outside. When placing the reservation, there isn’t an option for this. I was told the website assigns a table. Please fix this!
The host handled this well and was very polite but we ended up waiting almost
Thank you for the feedback and review! We will look into the seating options to make sure they are more transparent. We appreciate your support!
Great Food. Great Ambience. Single Tables are a bit small for the generous plate portions. Servers are always vibrant! Definitely a great place to go for a decent sunday brunch.
Thank you for the review and feedback!
Went yesterday for the first time for my birthday lunch and it was great. We all shared the seafood avocado salad (huge and pretty good, but could have used more seafood and avocado), the smoked turkey and fig sandwich (excellent), pulled pork "sammich" and onion rings (pretty good), lump crab empanadas (decent), bbq brisket meatballs (wow!), and the fried okra (maybe the best I've ever had). Overall a fantastic meal and we will definitely be back! (be sure to ask before you get the birthday cake)
Thank you for the feedback. The carrot cake should be complimentary for birthdays'. On the receipt it shows negative sign next to the carrot cake. It may look like it was charged but it should be complimentary. Sorry for any confusion or inconvenience. We appreciate your support! If you were charged we will get your next slice.
One of my favorite places when I go home to visit!!!
Checked in for my reservation and went outside to wait and I received an email saying thank you for visiting when we didn’t even sit down to eat. So my husband went to the back patio to see if they could fit us in since inside canceled our reservation. Food was decent server was very nice. Really wanted to sit inside with our reservation with a newborn but for some reason the hostess canceled our seats.
Generally a great lunch and dinner place specializing in barbeque. But brunches are great also with a unique combination of eggs Benedict with pulled pork. Highly recommend this place for either option.
Thanks so much, Bill! Come back and see us soon!
Sad the patio wasn’t open and they were out of pickles! But food was delicious. Waitress amazing!
Our table was ready. Our server was attentive. Our food was abundant and delicious.
Thanks so much!
Consistently good BBQ; generous portions; adult beverages were delicious; waitress was personable and attentive. What more could you want?
Thank you so much! Hope you'll visit again soon!
This was our first time visiting BRQ - it won’t be our last! Tyler - our server- was amazing! He made our celebration and overall experience really enjoyable.
Thank you Tyler!
Hi Amy, thanks so much for the review and kind feedback! We appreciate you celebrating at BRQ and will share your feedback with Tyler and the rest of the team.
I love BRQ!
Thank you so much!
We came on a very busy Sunday brunch day, so delays in service were to be expected... The food, though, was great! The Trio Benedict was awesome, and our friend enjoyed her omelet. The food definitely makes the dining experience worth it!
This restaurant is great for any occasion. Can be fancy or very casual. My boyfriend and I went for a date, and I was so glad I picked this place! He is so picky, and he loved everything—even gave compliments!
This is wonderful to hear! Thank you for sharing and for the 5-stars! We hope you'll visit again soon.
First date night at a restaurant in 11 months and it was absolutely perfect with perfect food, service and Covid precautions.
We're honored you chose us for your first date night in 11 months:) Thanks so much for the 5-stars!
This place never disappoints! Love the atmosphere and good food! Super friendly staff!
Thank you so much! Hope you visit again soon!
