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 :)

Unfortunately, we made a 7:30pm reservation on Friday night, were there on time, and were not sat until 10:30pm. Once we were sat, we were told to order quickly because the kitchen was closing. Overall an unfortunate experience.

Best bbq I’ve ever had! Absolutely love the chips and pickles they give you once you’re seated. I’m usually not a sandwich person but the bread they use was so fluffy and buttery. The sauces are all amazing and not even needed because the pulled chicken is so good !

Service on patio was slow., which is the second time I have experienced it. Food was mediocre- the sauce pretty much makes all the meat. Ambiance is great and comfortable. The drinks are also awesome, main reason to go there.

I have been to Chicago Q several times pre-Shelter in Place Order. I never could have imagined I would have eaten a Sunday Brunch on its patio, but here we are. Chicago Q did not disappoint. The food was great and the service was great too, adhering to all safety and PPE requirements. Nice work Chicago Q. Highly Recommend and I will go back.

One of our first meals out after Covid shut down - brunch at Q. Did not disappoint! Hats off to the staff for the extra steps taken with cleaning the tables, wearing masks/gloves, and they even brought out the side dishes in to-go containers and napkins over the entrees to get from kitchen to table. The food is among best in the city! Great patio to boot. Thank you for a fantastic meal!

I had been here before, but saw them offering meals to the homeless in the area during the initial COVID lockdown which made them my first stop once things opened up. I unknowingly asked for an off menu item and the waiter worked with the chef to make it happen for my table. It may seem like upscale BBQ is a contradiction, but this place is well worth it and should be on everybody's short list.

Amazing experience through and through! We went there this past Saturday for my husband’s 50th birthday celebration. There were 11 of us in a private room and the service and food could not be better. We enjoyed a whole mix of things from hush puppies to fried green tomatoes to brisket and it was all amazing. They even topped it off with a giant piece of chocolate cake with a candle, for all 11 of us to share – it was that big enough! Kudos to the whole staff for our experience!

The food is fantastic. The burnt ends are a must. I love the chips and pickles they bring at the beginning. We had the pulled pork and chicken. Some of the best chicken I’ve ever had. The cocktails were great too! We live out of town. This was our second time here, and we came back on our annual anniversary trip to the city, bc it was so good the first time around. We will definitely go back again next year. The restaurant is adorable. We enjoy sitting near the fireplace. The staff was attentive and kind.

Great Pitmaster that's not afraid to experiment but keeping the basics always consistent.
Tried the wagyu beef brisket once and went back for more. Found the special now on the apps section with wagyu burnt ends and had the prime brisket. Both were excelent. Very nice ambiance and decor with a more modern aproach. Had a newer waiter that wasn't too confortable yet however the floor manager was very atentive and covered it.
Will gladly return :)

I absolutely loved this place! The food was stellar! Our server was incredibly knowledgeable and the atmosphere was perfect for what we were going for. The only negative review I had was when we entered we stood at the door for 15 minutes before anyone acknowledged us. Which was frustrating because we had a reservation. Took my friend here to celebrate his birthday upon request. But I will definitely be back!
