Josephn tried Q 2 U BBQ Pit & Catering, didn't like it, and rated it . Josephn didn't like the food, liked the service, and didn't like the ambiance.

Pros
wonderful mac and cheese, hush puppies, and really good onion rings.
Cons
lightly burned bbq, cold in spots, strong flavor of wood smoke that I suspect was pine. The other sides we tried were baked beans and green beans with potatoes. Same strong smoke flavor was a deal-breaker for us. More of a Friday night drinking establishm
Comments
Owner/manager and waitstaff were nice. Amount of food for the money was disappointing.
