About Us

"This ain't our first rodeo"...

proudly states the owner-operator team at RBQ. 

...and with one member being a Rockaway native, and the others local too, we are here to truly offer something special to our neighborhood (and beyond).

Well-seasoned restaurant proprietors with decades of combined BBQ experience, we offer authentic BBQ classics, adding the myriad flavors of NYC to the menu and experience.  An Ole Hickory smoker is our work-horse and we prefer fruit woods for our low-and-slow process. 

In the restaurant and bar there is traditional service, while the market has an open-air window for quick bites and take-out...perfect for your beach kit. We also offer catering and delivery service.

The bar features 16 taps (soon to be 20) with a local, craft-forward, rotating lineup (and a Crowler station). A large canned beer selection compliments the tap choices. 

The vibe is casual, but always lively. Live music gets the joint jumping regularly. Look for continued special events, tastings, festivals and field trips to keep the fun level up.

See you soon.
