Food was fast, hot and full of flavor. Fresh cornbread was tasty and service was outstanding. Very good potato salad and freshly made. Good dinner without hurting the pocketbook.

At a recent convention meeting, I decided some North Carolina barbecue was in order. Queen City Q was in walking distance, so we gave it a try. Glad we got to sit outside; others have noted the sports bar atmosphere inside, which is not quite...More
