Initial Q

Social Bar & Smokehouse

Initial Q is not the typical southern barbecue stuffed in a Styrofoam clam shell with slaw and beans, but a gastro-smokehouse experience. Wherever you come down on the great barbecue debate, expect something excitingly different at Initial Q.

Ok I usually do not give a five star rating, however this is an exception. We tried this restaurant out with another couple and we were not disappointed...

The space feels elegant, and beautifully lit. And the menu, from one of my favorite under the radar Southern comfort food magicians, Daniel Dobbs, features his signature seasoning, presented subtitly on the pork rinds that opened my meal.

The food was great and the bourbon lineup was even better. Choices ranged from Pappy to Colonel EH Taylor. We will be back soon.
