“When it comes to ‘cue, Community Q BBQ in Decatur is doing something right. Actually, they’re doing a lot of things right: their meats melt in your mouth, the side dishes leave nothing to be desired (aside from another visit!), the climate is cool and casual, and the service is friendly. Their food – much of which is locally sourced and/or organic – is prepared fresh daily, and diners can mix and mingle while enjoying their meals from communal tables. Hence the name Community Q BBQ.
Co-owner and chef Dave Roberts – a seasoned BBQ veteran – knows what he’s doing when it comes to ‘cuing it up. From pulled pork and chicken to St. Louis style ribs and smoked sausage, his menu is a meat lover’s paradise. Especially the beef ribs, which were soft, tender and full of flavor.
Yes, this place has its barbecued meats wrapped tight. But it was the side dishes that made our meal…and the signature side that you’ve gotta try is the Mac n’ Cheese. Sharp cheddar, Monterey Jack, and Parmesan cheeses melted over rigatoni…this side dish is famous for a reason. Other sides to try include their spicy baked beans, Brunswick stew, and – of course – collard greens.
