Our lunchbunch visited Q's Raxx last Thursday. Mixed reviews. Many differences of opinion on the food consumed. Pix etc follow.
The best part of the day food-wise for me was stopping at Marx Bagels in Blue Ash to pick up some raisin bagels and bialys and getting a shot of owner in his Bagelman regalia which I will be posting here also.
Here are the photos from our visit to Q's Raax: http://s417.photobucket.com/albums/pp260/radians2009/Qs%20Raxx/?

If you go after dark their sign is not illuminated so look for them directly across the street from Hertz and Tires Incorporated
I thought their macaconi and cheese was pretty tasteless. Their okra fries were OK but I much prefer the fried okra at NOTG. Their red beans and rice has about 11 herbs and spices in it according to Quinton the owner. The taste is a bit odd and like nothing I ever had before.
Their potato and bacon soup was absolutely wonderful.
Their chicken noodle soup was kind of plain jane with little to recommend it.
The pulled pork sandwich was very bland and sparsely populated - the green beans were pretty plain.
Their cornbread was tasteless and resembled more a Johnny Cake. The jerk chicken was pretty dried out but tasty. The sweet potato casserole was very sweet and yummy.
I found their potato salad to be very bland and mundane - the baked beans were nothing to write home about - the bbq beef ribs were very dry - the bbq sauce was pretty plain and sweet.
The apple cobbler was delicious even tho we were disappointed they ran out of peach cobbler very early.
Our waitress Ella Mae of the 11 tattoos seemed very harried even though they were not very busy when we arrived. Something happened though as our visit went on and she seemed pretty mellow by the time we were ready to leave.
Quinton spent some time with us and was very genial and pleasant to talk with. He is the main chef also.
One of our members loved the jerk chicken and another loved the bbq beef ribs so I guess you need to try their food for yourselves to decide what you think of it.
