Our BBQ is Smokin’ All Summer Long
Summer and BBQ go together like southern cuisine and cornbread. Luckily at Q’s, we keep it smokin’ all summer long, making it the perfect way to spend a sunny, yet refreshing, day in downtown Long Beach.
Here are a few ways to spend a summer day before or after dining at Q’s:
Around Pine Avenue Pier
Start your morning off by taking your family and friends to the Aquarium of the Pacific. Wander through various exhibits and, for those feeling brave enough, engage with sharks and manta rays in the two-finger touch pools. After swimming your way through the gift shop and leaving with a new souvenir, walk over to the Rainbow Lighthouse for a view of Pine Avenue Pier. But, while admiring city and ocean views, your stomach might start to rumble asking for some delicious BBQ. Make your way over to Q Smokehouse for our Full Rack of Ribs or Half Pound Pork or Brisket Plate. Both are served with one Q signature side dish and a piece of mouth-watering cornbread.
Walk through Shoreline Village
Before taking an adventure at Shoreline Village, come over to Q Smokehouse to try our lunch menu, available on weekdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. From our BBQ Stuffed Potato topped with brisket, pork or pulled chicken and bacon, to our Double-Stacked Classic Cheeseburger with two ground beef patties, stacked with smoked cheddar, there is a dish for everyone to enjoy. From there, head over to Shoreline to browse through shops, boutiques and even dessert places. There is also an arcade, where you can get competitive with family and friends. End the night with a scenic view of the Queen Mary that can be found by walking behind Parker’s Lighthouse.
Shop at Pike Outlets
Across from Q Smokehouse, there are a handful of stores at the Pike Outlets, making it the perfect shopping trip. With outlets like F21 RED, Nike Factory Store, and G by Guess, there are plenty of apparel stores where you can find your next summer outfit. After hours of shopping, satisfy your stomach with dinner at Q Smokehouse. Start with Competition Style Burnt Ends and Pork Belly Sliders, then order the Pit-Master Full Smoke, which contains a full rack of ribs, whole chicken, two hot links, sidewinder fries, coleslaw, beans and cornbread. If you dine with us on Tuesday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. or 9 p.m. to 10 p.m., end your day with a $6 Q Drink during happy hour, which is available throughout the restaurant.
