My boyfriend is from the south and the ribs are better than ones in Tn. He loves the food here. Can't take him out of this place now.

This restaurant has sadly gone downhill. The food was bad and had a long black hair in it. Service was super slow even though the restaurant was empty. I’ve eaten here 15x over the years and have loved it but this was a very bad experience all around

Loved the chicken and Mac n’ cheese here. They spaced the indoor seating out very well, and I definitely felt safe. Service was spot-on. Definitely coming again!

This is our third time at Chicago q. We come in from out of town to go, and it is worth the drive and every penny. Everytime the food has been phenomenal and the service is fantastic. The cocktails are amazing too, and we love the atmosphere. This will continue to be one of our favorite places to eat.

When looking at photos online it seems like more of a fancy steak restaurant than a barbecue spot. Once you’re there it has much more of a southern feel. The music is country and the environment very nice but casual and inviting at the same time. It’s a great spot for a dinner when you’re looking for something less stuffy with great food. We’ll definitely be back.

So I'll be honest! I eat out quite a bit. MARIO our server made my dining experience at Chicago Q a great one!we're big on that! St Louis ribs fell of the bone, but was flavorless as I don't like to use sauces on my MEAT! The mashed potatoes weren't bad not amazing! The Macaroni was basic not amazing! Also the small portions of Gator bites were literally SMALL,not enough to share get 2 orders...drinks 1.old-fashioned 1 Kentucky Mai Tai we're great...that was the highlight...oh did I mention I've been here a few times and I remember this being better.. MARIO great job my friend..

Killer cornbread as well as Mac and cheese. All the meats were very tender. Drinks a little pricey but hey, it’s downtown Chicago. Well worth a visit.

I always get the brisket and never disappointed. However, this time they did not have a vinegar sauce and since I’m avoiding sugar this was awkward for me as the other sauces all have sugar. I made due and the meat was great but it was surprising they could be out of a basic sauce.

I tried the sausage link and didn’t like the dominant spice nor did my wife, but the brisket and chicken were both very good.

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!
