Positioned near the exit of Standard Market Westmont, SMQ guests can choose from a variety of barbecue dishes made with ingredients from the market, including sweet and spicy barbecue sauce, according to the Standard Market news release.

“SMQ features baby back ribs, smoked brisket, and pulled pork cooked low and slow in a hickory wood smoker,” Standard Market Executive Chef Brian Wright said in the release. “We’re excited to offer our guests another dining option at Standard Market Westmont, where they can enjoy high quality barbecue in a casual environment.”

The barbecue serves both entrées and sandwiches, as well as side dishes and desserts such as barbecued baked beans, macaroni and cheese, potato salad, bourbon bread pudding and peach cobbler, according to the release.
