Bar Q, Stamford

After hearing mixed reviews, tried it the other day..burnt ends rocked, great corn bread, good pulled pork
will go back to try other bbq selections served tapas style...nice tap beer selection too...

  1. I was there for the first time a few weeks ago, I agree they do have a great beer selection! I thought the food was okay, barbecue was good, we had the brisket. I didn't like the chicken and waffles appetizer, it was very greasy and the chicken bits were mostly fried breading. I would not go there for a full meal, but its good bar snacks.
    Also we were there on a Wednesday evening and it was fairly empty, curious if they get a good scene on the weekends.

        Q Barbecue in Port Chester? I think the food at Q is better, more of a meal and more freshly prepared. But BarQ has a nicer atmosphere, a tavern/lodge feel (Q feels a bit cafeteria like), and a much larger beer selection. They also have more choices on the menu but not all are done well. If I'm doing take out or craving classic barbecue I would go to Q in PC, if I want more of a bar scene or a night out with friends I would do BarQ.

          Port Chester, of course. Sorry. Thanks for the info.

    1. I posted my utter disappointment for this restaurant. I went for the burnt ends and hush puppies but it wasnt available on a Sat. night after a show at the Palace. I love the concept of a BBQ tapas place but man, did it go wrong on every level - service, food, noise level, professionalism, presentation & cleanliness. I would try the other location though.
