Naked Q’s approach to barbecue is rooted in the basics. While some pitmasters and ‘cue freaks live and die by the sauce and seasonings, Naked Q doesn’t slather on the sauce or rely on excessive seasonings or smoke when it comes to preparing their proteins—it’s in the name. Naked Q’s Oren Hartman puts his uncomplicated dry rubs to work for a straightforward take on ‘cue. Naked Q’s concise menu features a gang of barbecue sandwiches of the pulled pork, chopped brisket, and hot link varieties, to name a few. Other menu favorites include Naked Q’s hefty platters, served with cornbread and your choice of sides, ranging from Carolina-style slaw and potato salad to ranch-style beans and a rotating offering of roasted veggies.
