Welcome to Paradise Que, where a journey that started in 2006 has blossomed into a culinary paradise that awaits your senses. Our story is one of passion, perseverance, and the pursuit of creating a dining experience that transports you to a tropical oasis right in the heart of town.
In 2006, the seeds of our dream were planted as we hosted luaus in our own backyard. These gatherings quickly gained popularity, as people were drawn to the vibrant flavors, lively atmosphere, and the sense of togetherness that our food and hospitality fostered. As the years went by, our dedication and the love for what we do propelled us forward.
Greg and Melanie, the driving force behind Paradise Que, decided to take their smoking expertise into BBQ competitions sanctioned by KCBS. For the next 7 years, they embarked on a journey throughout the southeastern United States, honing their craft and learning from the diverse BBQ traditions the region had to offer. This experience not only refined their skills but also deepened their commitment to creating exceptional culinary experiences.
In January 2020, the dream took another step forward as we opened a test restaurant, serving our delectable BBQ creations one night a week. However, the unforeseen arrival of the Covid pandemic led to closure after just three months. Despite this setback, our determination remained unshaken.
Adversity only fueled our drive, leading to a pivotal shift in our approach. Over the next two years, we focused on building an impressive catering business that captivated the taste buds of many. This surge in demand made it evident that we needed a more permanent kitchen solution. In February 2022, fate smiled upon us as we discovered the perfect location at 1336 E. Emory Road, conveniently just two miles from our own home. This spot had housed previous restaurants, but we saw the potential to turn it into the haven we had envisioned.
Today, Paradise Que stands as a testament to the power of pursuing one's dreams. As you step through our doors, you'll be transported from the weariness of daily life to a vibrant and tropical-inspired atmosphere. The scent of smoky goodness wafts through the air, tantalizing your senses and inviting you to embark on a culinary adventure.
Our menu is a celebration of flavors, a fusion of BBQ mastery and tropical creativity that comes alive in every dish. Each bite tells the story of our journey, from the backyard luaus to the competitive BBQ circuit, all the way to the heart of our restaurant.
At Paradise Que, you're not just our customer; you're part of our story. Your presence completes the picture, and we invite you to join us on this journey of flavors, passion, and the pursuit of paradise. Welcome to a dining experience that transcends the ordinary—
