    Try the Competition St. Louis slab from our 100 Best list: These ribs take two additional hours of labor because they’re pulled out of the smoker periodically to baste. These bones are killing it.

    The Gold Coast's snazzy new Chicago Q brings down-home barbecue uptown, a bit of Felix Unger-meets-Oscar Madison for a power lunch. Read more

    This turkey day, the upscale Gold Coast barbecue joint is whipping up a delectable smattering of sides such as pork sausage and apple stuffing, as well as candied fingerling sweet potatoes. Read more

    Upscale touches include Kobe brisket and “competition” ribs. Spare ribs (the standard, not the $10-more-expensive “competition” slab), proved tender, with a good dose of smoke and a slightly sweet rub Read more

    The Pulled Pork sandwich is delectable and "The Q" uses the PERFECT bun. Try it with the South Carolina Mustard sauce; I couldn't get enough. Is this the best Pulled Pork in Chicago? It might be.

    Upscale touches include Kobe brisket and a slab of “competition” ribs that goes for about 35 bucks. We prefer the standard spare ribs, which are tender, smoky and sport a slightly sweet rub. Read more

    Pulled pork, mac n' cheese, and killer bloody mary's are go-to's at this upscale BBQ joint. Can't decide on your smoked meat? Go for the BBQ Flight.

    When attending Q you must start the meal with their amazing corn fitters. Well balanced and savory flavors, with an amazing chipotle dipping sauce that complements the fritters perfectly.

    I hope you came hungry! I would recommend the BBQ flight appetizer to get a feel of the different meats. Then I would get the Kobe ribs... expensive, but the best meat I have ever had!!

    The ribs are easily some of the best I've eaten, and the kobe brisket is the bomb-diggity. But, don't skip the shaved ice mint julep or the braised collard greens-- both are just right.

    For an appetizer, definitely try the BBQ flight; Kobe Brisket, Pulled Pork and Pulled Chicken. And ABSOLUTELY try the Smoked Dry-Rubbed Wings that are smoked for 40 minutes. Best wings I've EVER had.

    Finally found one item on menu that was horrible. The garlic shrimp on grilled polenta. Weird overly spiced (pepper-y in an unpleasant way). Only item I don't recommend

    Overpriced. Yes. But they get all the service aspects of a restaurant right and the food is top notch. Just wish they would ignore the Gold Coast area they reside and were more creative with the menu. Read more
