Quality meats. Quick service. Quintessentially American.

That’s what Q-BBQ is all about.

From the backwoods of the Carolinas, to the meat markets of Texas, and the hole-in-the-walls of Memphis, Q-BBQ is inspired by authentic barbeque traditions and recipes across the country. Our signature dishes are crafted from locally-sourced meats, slathered with our special in house blend rub and smoked for up to 16 hours for an irresistible flavor that instantly teleports you to a backyard barbeque in a small southern town.

Food brings people together, barbeque builds community.

At Q-BBQ, we believe that barbeque is more than a way of cooking. It’s a ritual of slowing down and savoring time itself. It’s been over a decade since we first fired up our pit, but our mission remains the same — to rekindle a tradition that began when humans first gathered around a fire, smoked meats, told stories, and created the connections that started civilization.

Want to know what’s smokin’ in our kitchens today?

We’ve won Michelin Guide awards for culinary excellence and People’s Choice trophies from Chicago’s Ribfest but the greatest testimony to our excellence is our patrons who queue up at our door for a taste of home.

Visit our LaGrange, Oak Park or Naperville locations to experience seriously delicious barbeque!

‘Q’ in the Community

As an independently owned and operated business, building long standing relationships with our neighbors and giving back to the local community is important to us.
Q Cares
We created Q-Cares as a way to directly influence the neighborhoods and people who dine in our restaurants. Q-Cares is our partial proceeds fundraising program, in which we host your organization/club for a day and help raise money for your cause. To set up your Q-Cares date, stop by your local Q and see the Manager or drop us an email at eat@q-bbq.com.
the H houndation
As a member of the H-Foundation, Q-BBQ has helped to raise over 11 million dollars for cancer research at the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University. Our dollars raised have turned into over $153 million of additional funding to find a cure. We are a proud partner and sponsor of their annual fundraiser, the Goombay Bash.
