It is missing something unique that stands out above all other BBQ restaurants. Fried green tomatoes were a great touch, along with their gator bites. However, the food came delivered on paper and menus were paper. Would have preferred a bourbon flight or a bourbon flavored BBQ sauce.

Dinner service Saturday 10/16 was a different story. First is the great, our service was fantastic, very attentive and had a great attitude. The issue was the food. I ordered the 2 plate (Chicken & Pork) with Mac and Cheese and Cornbread. The quality of food was disappointing, as I didn't finish the meal. The Chicken was dry and Pork had no flavor and was very fatty, mac & cheese had the consistency of box mac & cheese (had previously been baked and amazing), and cornbread was so dry you couldn't pick it up without it completely crumbling. My wife ordered the fried green tomatoes, mac & cheese, and cornbread. The tomatoes were small and the order only contained 3 slices of tomato, previously the order contained 5, I don't know if the quantity is altered because it was only 2 of us vs 5 last time (as this is technically an app), but she ordered it as a meal and for the cost 3 seems like a horrible value. We were very disappointed as we loved the Quarter as it was unique, now this restaurant has fallen into the same run of the mill below average BBQ restaurants in Roanoke. Unless the quality of food improves, I can't say we will return.

They had french fries, macaroni and cheese, collards and baked beans. The slaw had too much mayonnaise, but was delicious. I would love to have a salad as an option for a side. We had the sausage, brisket and barbecue. It was all delicious, as was the sauce. My favorite was the jalapeno sausage.

Once our entree came (which was quite quick) there was not a full plate in sight since the BBQ was cooked to perfection. Definitely the best BBQ I have had in town.
