While we had to sit outside due to Covid, Chicago Q rose to the challenge and provided a great Thanksgiving dinner. The food and service was awesome!

We LOVED Chicago Q. 2 days before the 2nd shutdown and very quiet but a perfect night. GREAT FOOD! Will go back as soon as stupid governor opens things up. Please support all the restaurants in Chicago

Sunday brunch on a rainy chicago afternoon was excellent. Brisket Eggs Benedict came with well seasoned potatoes and perfectly poached eggs. Hollandaise lacked taste or lemon or the mustard addition it boasted. Would have been better on the side as it disappeared against its well seasoned counterparts. Benedict people are hollandaise people so you should bump up the flavor. Cheese grits were on the menu but could have been offered as a side too. Garlic-salt-brown sugar potato chips with sweet pickles are nice starters to wake up your taste buds. Nice wines by the glass and bottle. About $70 for two included a $3.50 ‘Covid fee’

I had the fried chicken and it was fried a bit hard and the round shape of the pieces seemed strange. It was the service from the server that was outstanding. He was fun, thoughtful and made us feel at home. If I go back it will be because of him.

This was my first time visiting this restaurant. My sister and I went for brunch and we were pleasantly surprised. Starting with our server Mario. He was very knowledgeable about the entire menu and even suggested drinks for us which were great. Everything we ate and drank were amazing. We will definitely be back!

Service and food were FANTASTIC! Based on the outside appearance of the restaurant, I would not have expected it be a BBQ joint. We both ordered the combo platter (ribs, brisket, and pulled pork). It was a good amount of food and we both had leftovers to take with us. When visiting Chicago, I'd definitely go back and I've already recommended to friends!

We were sat at a single table set far outside the main patio. Felt very secluded, many homeless walking around and asking us for money and the staff forgot to check on us to get our orders.

Great food. Be sure to get a cocktail as the service is ...relaxed.
It was very good. The outdoor patio is terrific but a little hot for the middle of July. (not the restaurants fault)

It was much better the first time we came. What I wanted, which was the brisket meatballs with grits, wasn’t on the menu and there weren’t any mashed potatoes. The baked beans were still good like the first time though. The lemonade was awful! It was so sour, the waiter, Robert, brought us some sugar and I still couldn’t get it right so we got two Cokes instead. Also, the complimentary chips weren’t crispy like chips are supposed to be and there wasn’t any mild bbq sauce like Kansas City bbq sauce like the last time.

I returned for the chips and was greatly disappointed by the decreased quality... they served us limp chips at first, ones that had been sitting in their boxes for quite some time. When we requested more fresh ones, they made a batch that wasn’t seasoned. The inconsistency was surprising and disappointing. Water serving was much slower too, though I appreciate the glass cups versus plastic water bottles. Overall, not as delicious as my very first meal and I can’t confidently recommend it.

My girlfriend and i were tired of being in the house so we wanted to have a quarantine brunch. Chicago Q had excellent food, plus there was the space and ambience to enjoy our meal with out thinking of the circumstances of the world at this moment.

Everything we had was amazing! Went for brunch and I highly recommend the hush puppies as an app, the prime brisket benedict as your main plate, and the carrot cake for dessert. The pride and joy cocktail is also one of my favs. Can't wait to go again :)
