House of Q

Posted on May 26th, 2013 in Restaurants by Matthew

I have lived in Sioux City for three years and had never been to the House of Q. One of the main reasons that I haven’t been there is because there is no way of knowing that their building is their restaurant. They have no sign on the outside of their building. Besides that fact I had a fairly enjoyable meal here.

They have a little different setup here than a traditional restaurant. When we got there we were seated in the far dining room. We were given menus and told to go to the window at the front of the place to order. The guy was very helpful when I got up there. I decided to ask what the healthiest thing on the menu was and they suggested the baked chicken.

I ordered the baked chicken and for the side I ordered sweet potato fries and macaroni and cheese balls. It was a pretty regular wait time, which I was pleased with because we had a rather large group. The food came out and was very hot and the portion sizes were very large. I think they gave me an extra side because I had sweet potato fries; mac and cheese balls and they gave me potato wedges as well.

They had a pretty nice selection of bar-b-que sauces being that that is their specialty. They had spicy, chipotle BBQ, chipotle mustard, honey mustard, original, and honey BBQ. I had to try all of these of course and my favorites were the honey mustard and the honey BBQ. They were perfect additions to my baked chicken.


The House of Q has a very large bottled beer selection, and me being the man I am, I decided to get a couple. I am a huge Blue Moon fan so the first one I got I got an original Blue Moon. It complimented my meal extremely well. After that I thought to myself it would be nice to have another one. So I went back up and this time I ordered the seasonal Blue Moon with the green label. This one was pretty darn tasty as well. I had never had a seasonal Blue Moon and this one hit the spot. It was a little sweeter than the original and complimented the meal a little better than the original.


Overall I would say I had a decent experience at House of Q. The service was very friendly and the food was pretty good. I am more impressed with the service here than I am with the food, but the side dishes that they served were extremely delicious. Putting one of those mac and cheese balls up to your nose can make your mouth water. The only downfall I think still is the fact that they don’t have an actual sign outside their building and to me that is a terrible business decision because for someone like me you can easily miss this hidden Siouxland gem for over three years.
