Quick Bite

SuzyQue’s BBQ

34 S. Valley Road, West Orange

Daily, 11:30 am–2 am


Victorian house sports stained glass windows and fretwork details, a large bustling dining room, a separate bar area and additional seating on a four-season porch.

Don’t Miss:
The trio of pan-seared mini crabcakes ($10.50) served with a spicy mayo. Wings are also a popular starter; choose from seasoned, smoked ($8.50) or the traditional Buffalo style ($7.50). Rib lovers will go for the smoked barbecue: baby backs or St. Louis style in a full ($21.50) or half rack ($14.50) with choice of sauce, such as orange habanero, molasses and tomato based. Other smoked offerings include Texas beef brisket ($16), Carolina chopped pork ($13) and short ribs ($22), each served with two sides—macaroni and cheese, collard greens, baked beans or sweet potato fries—and cornbread. Additional selections include sandwiches, a hearty chicken pot pie with a buttery crust ($13), roasted chicken stuffed with chorizo, Manchego cheese and chile sauce ($16), burgers ($9–$10) and sliders ($8.50–$10.50), including pulled pork, crab cake, brisket, black Angus and turkey.

Heads up: Daily happy hour (3–7 pm) offers $1 off all drinks and a selection of half-priced appetizers.

The Scoop:
This neighborhood spot draws a crowd of regulars, but there’s plenty of seating and parking. Live music is offered weekly.
