Q Grill

Squaremeal Review of Q Grill ?

The Q in the name references BBQ, and this eatery from ex-Caprice Holdings CEO Des McDonald celebrates all things smoky and grilled. Bare wood, dishevelled metal, hanging cleavers and industrial lighting contribute to a carefully created, shabby-chic design that feels ripe for a roll-out. Salads and raw dishes provide the warm-up acts on a menu that has Deep South soul, but is willing to travel: steak tartare wins points for its judicious use of spice and capers, while tuna crudo with avocado and pomegranate is a textural funfair. To follow, a sumptuously moist pit-roast half-chicken hits the spot – although the same can’t be said of the signature rack of ribs, which was dry and devoid of stickiness when we visited. Still, the bourbon-infused pecan pie makes amends, while the drinks list runs to diverse cocktails and locally brewed Camden Town beers. In short, a fun prospect that could be a class act with a little more polish.

For meat lovers!

Jun 2015

This is a restaurant for meat lovers. All of the meat we ordered was great (smoked cheese burger, fried chicken, wings and ribs), but the sides were extra with most dishes and the price does creep up on you! I don't think we had a single piece of greenery on any of the 4 plates (does coleslaw count?!) and even the burger didn't contain any trace of salad, so I would make sure that I ordered at least a side salad next time. The service and atmosphere could not be faulted and I would definitely...

    What makes Q Grill, Camden truly special is that it comes armed with its very own charcoal pit grill and oven house Jasper smoker, essentially a purpose built grill and smoker inspired by the smoking and barbecuing traditions of the Deep South. This means that we’re talking about some serious soul food from Memphis, Tennessee. Q Grill means business when it comes to meat and offers a selection of American dishes with a Southern and English feel. All meat dishes are carefully prepared and marinated with their own Q cajun seasonings which is then grilled and smoked for optimum smoky richness. Q Grill also serves a range...

    Using their charcoal pit and their own rub mix, Q Grill gives you everything from brisket, chicken wings and ribs to prawns, burgers and sides. Plenty of food and a lot of options.
    On a hot Sunday afternoon, we were presented with a seat near the front and right next to the singer. This was a bit of a distraction; he was okay, but quite loud and the songs were very repetitive. I guess they were trying the hard rock vibe, but it was just too much and we could not even hear one other on a table for four.
