Led by national barbeque champion, Rob Magee, Q39 has become well-known for pushing the boundaries of barbecue during less than two years of operation. Competition BBQ Plates showcase Magee's three decades of expertise, from Certified Black Angus Beef Brisket to smoke and char-grilled chicken or House-Made Chipotle Sausage. Fresh rolls, apple coleslaw and a choice of potato salad or beans are standard issue with these hefty plates. Three varieties of ground brisket burgers are crafted from USDA-certified Black Angus beef, oak-wood grilled, and served on toasted buns. Smoke and fire also infuse Cobb or salmon salad and a Mexican chicken wrap. Wood-Fired Grilled Plates showcase steak, salmon and smoked fried chicken, accompanied by house-made sauce, fresh vegetables or Magee's singular white bean cassoulet. The restaurant's modern, yet rustic ambiance includes a large communal table, as well as smaller tables and a patio with urban views; or sip a craft cocktail at the bar.
- Barbecue: "Customers will appreciate the restaurant's gluten-free side plates, including house-cut fries, apple coleslaw and baked beans. Additional gluten-free options range from the Salmon Filet plate, to Wood-fired Grilled Salmon, Chicken Cobb Salad, and many of the Competition BBQ Plates."
- Best for Barbecue Because: In less than two years, this Westport barbecue joint has already developed a huge group of loyal fans.
