J ust Q ’ i n BBQ Just Q’in BBQ graduated from a successful catering and food truck operation to open its first brick-and-mortar location in Newtown in 2011. Since then, locals have enjoyed the restaurant’s dedication to excellence, from food preparation and presentation to service. The inimitable BBQ joint — which focuses on authentic pulled pork, ribs, brisket, chicken and homemade sides — is set to open a new Walnut Hills location in the near future. The new spot will include a string-lit outdoor dining area that seats 50. The gated courtyard will play music outside and offer the occasional live music performance.
