Chicago q

Chicago q is not your ordinary barbecue joint. Since opening in 2010, our chefs have created a barbecue experience like none other by using the highest quality meats seasoned with house-made rubs while served in a Savannah-style dining room, imbued with Southern charm and comfort.

The restaurant serves award-winning competition fare alongside regional favorites from the Carolinas, Texas, Missouri and Tennessee, which pair perfectly with the best selection of rare and exclusive bourbons in Chicago. Whether in the neighborhood or traveling to the city, a group of two or one of 50, Chicago q is the ideal space for any gathering or occasion.

"This is one of my favorite hidden restaurants in Chicago. They give you pickles and potato chips on the table instead of bread. I've never seen anything like it, and it's a great treat. The BBQ is great. The sauces are amazing and you get to choose from several. Really great place."

"The service was terrible. We waited for 25 minutes and the server didn't take our order. The manager came and took the order for us. Ten minutes later the server comes to try to take our order and we told him we had already placed it.
When the food comes, one dish is missing and he tells us that he will bring it right away. We finished eating and we told him that the remaining food never came and brought the last dish after we were done with the rest.
Finally, he brings the check, makes a mistake charging us more for a drink we hadn't ordered and when he realizes that he tells us he will fix the problem and brings us a complete different check from another table!!
The food is amazing!! The competition ribs are great! My recommendation is to go on a non-busy day or the service will ruin your experience!"

"The Q is located in a great part of Chi Town, easy to get to and valet parking if needed. My wife and I walked from the Hilton, we enjoy the walk and loved the restaurant. The service was outstanding, we had a small army of servers taking care of us. The food was outstanding, we ended up getting to much food because we wanted to try everything. I will be going their again and will tell all my friends they have to try it out. This restaurant is a Chicago Hot Spot... for sure."

"They have the best bbq ribs I've ever had. I'm not a huge meat lover, but they were fall off the bone with minimal fat and an amazing rub. The atmosphere is chill, but still upscale and the waitress was attentive and very nice."

"We went for the Restaurant Week lunch and tried everything on that menu. The baby back ribs were fantastic. The bbq sauces were on the side but I did really not like any of them. However the ribs did not need any sauce at all, they were just great with the rub. We also enjoyed the cheddar bacon fritters, corn bread and carrot cake. One thing we did not like were the wings. We all thought they were way too salty. The beef brisket was pretty good, not the best, but good. We also had the corn, black bean and avocado salad, it was good but it only had one little piece of avocado. My son had the pulled pork and liked it along with the bbq sauce on the side, he ate it so fast I did not have a chance to try it! It looked good though! Will go back for the baby back ribs for sure!"

"I loved getting lunch during restaurant week at Chicago Q! The service was fantastic, the drinks were strong, and the amount of food received was unreal. I couldn't finish 2/3 courses, but definitely enjoyed those leftovers. The restaurant itself was well-lit and not too loud. Would definitely recommend!"

"The portions are insane, even for choosing the restaurant week menu. The meats were very tasty and juicy. I got the ribs, which literally fell off the bone - so amazing! The sauces were okay..no the best I've had, but the quality of the meat made up for it. Also, the mac n cheese is a must!"

"We were warmly greeted and promptly seated. Booth seating was appreciated and cramped. The ambience was pleasant yet moderately loud. It was restaurant week, so we ordered from that limited menu. The appetizers, fried green tomatoes and cheddar bacon hush puppies, were yummy comfort foods. Indeed, the baby back ribs were also a hit! Our sides, which included baked beans and Mac-n-cheese, were less desirable. Our adult beverages were quite nice. Unfortunately, the verdict on the carrot cake was two thumbs down. Overall, this is a pretty decent Q joint for those who don't mind a bit of jovial noise with their meal."

"Reuben, our server made our dining experience. While our ribs were excellent, the cornbread was dry and tasteless. A pricey place with high volume and energy after 7PM."

"I'm consistently let down by the BBQ here. I tried the St Louis and Baby Back Ribs tonight and both had been braised way too long. I understand having rib meat that falls off the bone, but this was just mush."

"I went with my friend for her birthday lunch. Restaurant week was on so we did that menu. Wow for $22 it was amazing. I had the hush puppies, ribs, side cornbread and carrot cake!! My friend has wings, brisket, side coleslaw and carrot cake, with a candle in it (Thanks q). They even bought pickles and chips to start. We had a glass of Prosecco which was so good, it tasted like expensive champagne. The server was very nice and left us when we needed a gap between things. He also explained that they do full portions during restaurant week which I was surprised at. He said they want their customers to come back, which is the whole point right!! Great neighborhood gem. We will be back."
