There’s a New BBQ Restaurant Open on Martin Luther King Drive

We have a new BBQ spot for you to try.

The owner of Ashley’s Bar-B-Q (1501 N. Center St.) just opened another restaurant, serving a broader menu than its brother. It’s called Q (2730 N. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive) and at this time serves dinner only, with lunch service coming soon.

The dinner menu includes a couple of BBQ dishes (brisket and pork shoulder, both served with two sides and cornbread), alfredo pasta, pork chops served smothered, grilled or Southern fried, boneless chicken prepared similarly to the pork chops, as well as shrimp and lobster mac, salmon croquettes, shrimp and grits and pan-fried catfish ($13-$21).
