Welcome to the home of True Q.
We discovered true Q in the Carolinas, the Cradle of the "Q" - famous for decades-old recipes, smoked in small roadside shacks by second and third generation pitmasters. They taught us the low and slow secret to great barbecue and we brought that rich tradition north to share with our family, friends and ultimately, Old Carolina guests. What started as a passion between two high school buddies has grown to include hundreds of hard-working employees and many dedicated franchise partners all sharing in the original commitment to produce authentic, award-winning barbecue, served with genuine hospitality.
