Q Authentic Barbeque Restaurant + Bar Restaurant Review: Q touts authenticity in its name and the routine here is quite simple: order your meal at the counter, take a ticket and find a seat. A typical selection is the Q sampler: brisket, chicken, ribs and pulled pork. Q knows how to pile on the barbecue sauce, so expect tender, dripping, fall-off-the-bone ribs. The certified rib lover can choose the St. Louis-style ribs that are meatier than the baby version but leaner than the standard spare in full-slab, half-slab and quarter-slab options. If the objective is a quick lunch, sandwiches like the chopped Texas beef brisket will not leave diners looking for their "meat fix" feeling deprived. Of course, all that savory fare cries out for something sweet; grab a side of biscuits with maple butter or sweet potato fries. Classic American desserts include banana pudding and old-fashioned layer cake. An expanded raw bar and drinks menu make Q an option for those seeking a casual bar scene or a libation to temper the anticipation while waiting for their order.
