Q in Mt Kisco closed (as is the Guatemalen Chapines Deli?)

Noticed they were clearing out all the equipment today at Q in Mt. Kisco. A sign on the door said to visit the Port Chester location. Frankly, I just want to know what they are planning to do with the bit Southern Pride smoker. I'll find a place for it...

Also, I'm not positive, but it looked like Chapines Deli is also closing. The big sign was gone and the paper on the wall didn't look promising. That said, the door still had an "Open" sign. Not sure if it was just left there or if indeed it is opening. I'll check that one out more later.

  1. Thats is so upsetting. We loved having Q there. Solid food, always nice to go with kids -they were always so nice with the kids. It was such a nice option.

      Oh, no! Please don't tell me this is true! i love this place!

        remember, the PC location is still there, albeit a full 20 minutes away.

          1. re: wincountrygirl

   depressing. it says looking for a new location, so lets be hopeful

      2. bummer, guess i gotta drive to Port Chester to get my Super Bowl spread

        1. They just started sending out an email newsletter and their second installment was announcing the closure. I work near the one in PC and live near the one in MK so I used to have Q's once a week. I will miss it. I think I was the last customer at Jimmie Lee's in WP and now this. Do you recommend any BBQ places in the area? Incidentally, Southbound BBQ in Valhalla was the worst experience of my life which is too bad because that is pretty close too.

            Have you tried Memphis Maes in Croton? There is also a place in Shrub Oak that is decent. Qs surpasses them all but I guess its time to move on....

              Couldn't you still go the the Port Chester location if you work near there?

              1. re: valerie

                i guess i could but it is on the other side of town for me. I am in Ossining?

                  I was actually responding to user497 since the post says " I work near the one in PC and live near the one in MK so I used to have Q's once a week. I will miss it. "

                IMHO, Big W's BBQ on Route 22 in Wingdale continues to serve up by a considerable margin the best BBQ in the region. It's dry rub BBQ, and not slathered in sauce, and it's a drive from Northern Westchester, (although not that much longer than driving from Mount Kisco to PC) but in my view, their ribs and brisket are just outstanding, And their wings are wicked.

                1. re: NickM

                  Big W is awesome. And makes sense if you are in Northern Westchester. But from Kisco alone, it's twice as far (timewise) and just feels a lot farther than it is because it's on little dinky Rte 22.... But I agree. It's good food...

                  1. re: adamclyde

                    Big props to Big W. Warren smokes up some of the best Q anywhere! Really nice guy to boot. Go for the brisket and tell him to leave the fat on!

                    1. re: pabboy

                      Yes, I also ask him to leave the fat on the brisket! He carves the meat right in front of you, and it's great to watch his hunks of brisket undulating when he drops them onto the board. Particularly if I'm ordering to go, I like to bring some of the fat home with me.

                      1. re: NickM

                        another HUGE fan of big W...fortunately i live 5 miles from him in pawling!

                        1. re: corky

                          Big W has Q beat by a mile...too bad they are so many miles away from lower Westchester.

                      2. re: pabboy

                        agreed. big w is pretty dang good.

                        1. re: cubanat

                          We were in Pawling this afternoon and of course no trip to the area is complete without stopping at Big W's. We had lunch there. The brisket was particularly amazing today we also tried a new side, stewed apples, cranberries and apricots. There were two additional new items on the menu. A shepards pie made with dirty mashed, roasted vegetables and burnt ends and sloppy ribs ( rib meat removed from the bone and simmered in a mixture of balsamic vinegar and wine) Warren was offering tastes of the latter to anyone ordering pulled pork. I thnk everyone who tried it ended up changing their order. You have to love this place!
