Q's wings came in a wonderful platter. With them includes your choice of two sides and a corn muffin. These wings are unlike any other I have ever had, and honestly I thought they were too different to be on this tour. However I realized this was a great way to show the diversity of chicken wing styles. The way Q does it is they give you entire wing pieces. The sections are not separated, it is up to us to pull apart the meat. The wings are glazed in a delicious, in house made BBQ sauce. It is a perfect wing BBQ sauce, delicious with a hint of heat. The meat was smoked perfectly, not a heavy smoke but just enough to leave a slight smoke flavor along with the sauce. They also give you a lot. A heaping portion of food is presented to you. More then filled me up. It's nice to get that amount of food these days. I almost forgot the Blue Cheese was awesome. Possibly another made in house creation, very chunky and tasty.
Beyond the wings Q had plenty more to offer. The Iced Tea, served in take home mason jars, was home made to perfection. The pulled pork was on point, tender and juicy. We also sampled a few of their sides. I was very pleased with the potato salad. It was extremely smooth with chunks of peppers and onions mixed in, a great combination. The mac and cheese was in a unique cheese sauce that had a nice taste, however I personally like it a little thicker then it was. I must say the sweet potato fries are perhaps the best I have ever had. I would return solely for these fries! The final item I tasted was the corn bread. It is hard to find a good corn bread and this ranks the number 2 corn bread I have ever had (AllSmokedUp Catering being number 1) It was extra sweet and wonderfully flavored.
The atmosphere was incredible. Monday is live music night. A perfect playlist of music was being played, I could have thought I was really in the south. At Q you order at the counter after you decide what you will be dining on. After just a short wait your food is brought to you seated at your table. It is a very fast system and it worked well. The service was excellent, not a single complaint here. One feature every wing joint should have, was a sticky finger station, a pedal operated sing and motion sensor paper towels, right on the main floor, how perfect!
I want to be 100% clear on this- Q Restaurant is an amazing place serving perfectly cooked, spiced and flavored BBQ food. With heaping portions, no one will go home hungry. These wings are unlike the traditional buffalo wing, however it was a great eating experience, and I'm giving them an 8.2 out of 10.
Verdict- 8.2 out of 10 and beyond great wings, the food and atmosphere create a must try experience.
