Scheduled an 8pm reservation and was a few minutes late. Hostess was very accommodating and sat us right away. (Place was roughly half full). We ordered the Brisket Meatballs appetizer, pulled pork entree, and brisket Mac n cheese. All the food was fantastic! Our favorite between the three dishes were the brisket meatballs.

Great food & drinks - my only qualm is that the upstairs area had really loud music! Would’ve been nice to turn the volume down a bit - seemed like I had to yell even at a small 4 person table. But otherwise everything was great!

We came here on a Saturday night date, and loved the southern-style design inside, although it was a bit loud and crowded for easy conversation. We tried the pulled pork, grilled chicken, okra, and cornbread, all of which were excellent. The meat was tender, and you could tell care went into the flavors of the unique bbq sauces. I especially liked the sides, well-seasoned and tender okra and buttery sweet cornbread with a short crumb.

Excellent service, from the host to the waitress, to the attending server who filled our water, brought out the chips & pickles, and our food- everyone else was very courteous and professional. The food itself was excellent. The ambiance was classy and quiet enough to enjoy conversation and have a great time!

Honestly a pretty decent experience compared to what I was expecting being a bbq restaurant in a touristy area of the city. Get the burnt ends- way better than the brisket...Smokey and moist while the brisket fell short being slightly dry and grey. Mashed potatoes, as mundane of an item, were super delicious and I wanted another order but refrained. The vinegar and mustard sauces were delicious. Our server was perfectly pleasant. Good stop for an inexpensive/mid priced sit down meal in the area.

Great bbq ... wish I could get pat the review feature in open table though, but it requires a review of a certain length. So padding.

It used to be the place to go to for ribs in Chicago.
Don't go there, you can do a lot better at so many other places.

I had my birthday party there for 7 of my closest friends. The service is top notch. I loved the atmosphere and the decor. I felt like I was in an luxury Caribbean restaurant. Food was delicious. They bring tortilla chip and sweet pickles to your table and constantly replenish them. I will definitely go back there again

We were vacationing on the Gold Coast and had trouble finding a reasonably priced restaurant on the neighborhood. Chicago Q is a gem! I’m a pescatarian and really enjoyed the salmon.

For it being a slow sunday night, our service kind of lacked. Our server was not very informative or personable. (Which is ok but you would think with it being slow, you would take the time to explain items) food was great like always, yummy wines and clean restaurant. You were surprisingly out of the better bourbons which was a bummer. We’ll be back but come on Q... :-)

This place was awesome! I got a reservation for 2 for Friday night at 8:30 (although that was unnecessary because it wasn't full). We each had a cocktail (an Old-fashioned and a Paloma)- both were good, but not great. The food was outstanding! We had the hush puppies to start, then the pulled chicken, half slab of ribs, and the stuffed poblano pepper - all were great! We will definitely be stopping back here on our next Chicago trip!

Great service and atmosphere. I'm a vegetarian, so I looked at this date night as a sacrifice for my meat-eating husband. After trying the food I would happily go back. I had the stuffed poblano pepper, which was SO delicious, though maybe a bit too salty. I'd get it again or try the good-looking kale salad the neighboring table had. My husband loved the meat and sauces--he had the prime brisket sandwich. Good date spot!
