The mac and cheese was amazing, cheesy, creamy, glory. There were also some toasted breadcrumbs on top which gave it a special crunch. Definitely get this. The collard greens were also done very well, they came with a special Hot Pepper Vinegar which really took them to the next level.
The tri tip was tender and delicious, and really good with the Ivory Sauce. The baby back ribs were unfortunately a disappointment, they were tough, very dry and hard to eat. Finally, the pulled pork was also very good – especially with the Carolina and Carolina Gold sauces. Actually, all of the sauces are seriously delicious. These sauces are for sale in some grocery stores, and on the Lillie’s Q website. I definitely recommend picking up a bottle or two for your own home barbequing needs.
I wanted to try a dessert, but by the time we finished with our main course we had already been in the restaurant for over two hours. Additionally, the waiter informed us that they were out of all of the desserts except for one so we passed. In summary, sadly the service experience was not the best, and I thought some of the things I tried were a little below average. However, Lillie’s Q has a great atmosphere, some really good sauces, and a few great food items at reasonable price points. Give it a try if you are in the area.
