We are foodies . . . I mean serious foodies. We live about an hour away from this place and have seen the owner on nationally televised programs but had never stopped by Q till today. My only regret is that we waited so long. The restaurant was impeccably clean and tidy. We were greeted by a lovely man who... More

Really great brisket and burnt ends and well priced. The highlights are the corn bread muffins and Pineapple Hot Dish which were both fresh and a great addition to the order. Tuffy Stone the owner is on BBQ Pitmasters and his restaurant proudly displays all of his assorted trophys.

Some of the best BBQ in Virginia (albeit pricey). Really tender meats and the most amazing sauce. Such wonderful flavors. And this company is truly generous. They have donated food for many years to a local ministry fund raiser. So good to the community! Of course we will be going back for more.

After a friend recommended the wings at Q BBQ, I had to take advantage of first Sunday off. With kickoff fast arriving I placed my order of wings after ordering for the rest of my family at BBWs. Even with a stop at sprint for a quick fix. The wings at Q were ready to go. After walk and waiting... More

We stopped on a road trip because we were in the mood for BBQ. Best brisket ever!! So tender and flavorful. Pulled pork was also great. Had hush puppies, coleslaw and baked beans. Baked beans were delicious!!! Do yourself a favor and stop here, especially if you are from the North where we cannot get good BBQ. Hope to get... More

I really like this BBQ place. The BBQ is always very clean/doesn't have a ton of fat throughout it. The sides they offer are tasty and the service is good.

This restaurant was close to our hotel. I got wings. One of my friends wanted pulled pork, but they were out. Weird, that's what you do. Even had trophies, but she had the ends or crispy edges, something like that. She loved it. I tasted, it was amazing.

Staying at a nearby hotel for a night, and was very pleased to find this restaurant right around the corner. The BBQ meats were delicious. Great accompaniment with moist corn meal muffin, hush puppies, and potato salad. The coleslaw was a miss as the unedible core was all mixed in. Overall though, a very nice meal.

We had just finished judging a BBQ contest in which Tuff competed but I had a desire for a brisket chili dog. And it didn't disappoint, it was amazing! Highly recommend! !
