Lillie's Q Restaurant Review

: Bucktowners get a taste of Charlie McKenna’s (TRU and Avenues) barbecue skills at his “urban” barbecue concept, with its mod, industrial-chic adornments (the original location is in Destin, Fla.). You’ll find all the staples, from the requisite slew of sauces to sides like creamy mac ‘n’ cheese sprinkled with crackling bread crumbs. If you’re noshing, try the baby-back ribs with Carolina dirt and apple glaze; if you’re tippling, sample the specialty cocktails, crafted from small-batch moonshine and proffered in mason jars. At meal's end, treat yourself to the seasonal fruit shortcake.
