House of Que

The wait is over: House of Que in Hoboken NJ open!

Okay, those looking for the best BBQ on the east coast can stuff themselves to the gills tonight! House of Que will be open to the public starting around 8:30pm!

The place looks awesome inside – with a MUCH better ambiance compared to the previous tenant (340 Grill).

We predict it’ll be on many residents and visitors short list of top Hoboken restaurant spots (except for the people who are too “earthy” and like eating grass clippings and soy milk).

Here are a few shots from yesterday as the scrambled to make last minute adjustments and began stocking the place up:

Description: Authentic BBQ bar & restaurant

11/13/2015 Update:

After a long period of stagnation with the build-out of House of Que in Hoboken, they really hit the ground running the past few weeks – and hope to open soon!

FYI – we’ve almost abandoned “eating out” recently, because the food we prepare at home is profoundly better, and less costly. However…

Slow-cooked BBQ is something that we’ll never have a problem eating out – purely because of the amount of effort it takes to make a great BBQ dish. So House of Que will be on our very short list of places to frequent in Hoboken. Can’t wait!

(PS – nice old-school weathered awnings.. good touch!)

9/3/2015 Update:

Quick update here. Many Hoboken “foodies” thought that the lack of activity at the much-anticipated House of ‘Que at 4th & Sinatra meant they were “done.”

Not the case, as far as we’re concerned – after we spoke to the owners.

  1. It took over SEVEN months for them to get the proper permits to what amounts to a cookie-cutter basic restaurant layout. “Hooray” for Hoboken for making it 10x more difficult than it needs to be.
  2. Regardless – the crew that owns House of ‘Que – also owns Spa Diner now – so a lot of their effort was NOT being wasted. Good job, guys!

They still hope to open this fall – maybe latest before end of year.

We’ll keep tabs on this and much more.

(Reborn!) Coming soon to Hoboken, NJ: House of ‘Que (BBQ)

11/7/2014 Update:

Two years ago, the owners of Village Pourhouse and Little Town NJ wanted to bring their next original restaurant concept to Hoboken – House of ‘Que. That was supposed to happen in the SkyClub, but plans fell through (it’s now Brassiere De Paris).

For a while there, it seemed off the table. But we’re in luck!

Now that 3 Forty Grill is gone – they’ve decided to take over that space and will be open as House of ‘Que come spring 2015.

Yum. Tasty fall-off-the-bone BBQ and great NYC views. Can’t wait!

House of ‘Que – Hoboken, NJ



Here’s some good news – and perhaps a tenant that will finally have staying power over at The Skyclub building in the SW corner of Hoboken.

After West End Station lasted only a few months, and Sammy’s Roadhouse not much longer, the talented and successful crew of Village Pourhouse and the upcoming Little Town New Jersey are taking a crack at putting a “go to” Hoboken restaurant in this space.

House of ‘Que aims to be the best Barbecue you’ll ever have. And from what I’m hearing about the effort the owners are putting into this endeavor – you will not be disappointed. Cannot wait! Let’s hope their quality is enough to get people flocking to this corner of town.

More to come as we get closer to opening! (mouth watering…)

Just what Hoboken needs, more burgers, wings, and riibs. More adults may be staying in Hoboken, but it seems they all eat like college freshmen. Guess we have to go to Weehawkin and points north for decent food.

It is weird–like Times Sq where mediocre food is the rule b/c people aren’t there for the food. If it turns out to be the best BBQ, I’ll eat my words for dessert.[quote comment=”224053″]Just what Hoboken needs, more burgers, wings, and riibs.

I hope it is not “fall off the bone” since that usually means your BBQ is overcooked — at least for ribs.

This is a prime waterfront location, so there is a lot at stake for the new owners here. I hope for two things: some kick(butt) real Southern-style BBQ, and that the little Manzo boys aren’t involved with this one! They’ve got their little playground over @ Little Town – hopefully this place is truly focused on the food and not reality TV wannabes! 😉
