A word from Duke's Brew & Que
Duke’s Brew & Que is a vibrant restaurant where you can enjoy slow smoked BBQ. We are also the tap house for Beavertown Brewery so there will always be a great range of their beer on draught along with many other big names in craft brewing. At the weekend we feature an American style brunch with pancakes made to order, big stuffed omelets, eggs and smoked streaky bacon all served with tasty, home fried potatoes.

    Portions are huge so although individual prices are high the overall cost was good. £42 for 2 bigs guys to be stuffed. Only negative is the 12.5% descretionary service for drinks. Don't mind paying it for the food service but beers were £5 per pint. At that price the service should be free

    Such great food, service, choice of beer and cocktails! We had a great time, it's great for couples, groups of friends or business meals which are casual. It's a really relaxed and fun vibe and there's no scrimping on the portions- we always get so full from all their delicious food. Definitely going back again soon :D

    We originally booked for 8 but needed to increase to 10. The restaurant did all they good to accommodate us and called us on the day to confirm they could move things around and give us a table all together - excellent! Food was really good and tasty, will probably share the 'Greatest hits' with someone next time, As its waaaaay too much for one person. We dined at 9:30pm and it was quite busy but come 10:30pm is was quite rowdy in the bar area. To be expected on a Saturday evening but if you want a more chilled experience, go a bit earlier. Only bad points were that towards the end of the meal, the waiting staff were very quick to take our drinks away if there was a little left. This happened a couple of times. Also, as we were a big group and one of our guests wasn't eating, we didn't want to split the Bill evenly as it wasn't fair. It took a while to sort everything out but i guess its to be expected with 10 guests. One other thing is one of our group had celiacs diesease. Pretty much everything on the menu had gluten in it, so she couldn't eat anything. This is just a point for consideration for anyone visiting with celiacs. Overall it was really good and we'd go again.

    The pork ribs are delicious! The medium spicy chicken wings are quite spicy and I would not like to find out how hot the extra hot ones are, probably scorching! Chilli fries very yummie and all the portions generous so a nice walk in the trendy Dalsyon area after the meal is recommended ;-) Last but not least, the service was outstanding!

    I ordered the beef rib and nothing quite prepared me for how big it was - the guys next to me was even bigger|!! I took practically a steak's worth of meat home in a doggy bag. Staff are nice and attentive but it gets busy so this can slow down, it seems the type of place people come for a good catch up. No one seemed in a rush. Good food, good cocktails, good music and a good beer selection. We would definitely come again!

    Best southern US style BBQ outside America - in fact, better than a lot of 'indoor BBQ's restaurants I have been to in the US - and I have been to a lot all over the USA! Recommend the 17 oz beef rib and the Landslider pulled pork burger. If you can fit in dessert, the peanut butter and dark chocolate tart is a must.

    I saw Duke's Brew and Que on Food Junkies and thought that it looked like my kind of place. I immediately booked a table and hopped on the Overground to Haggerston to see what the fuss was about. It didn't look like much from the outside but once inside and seated the trendy yet easy feel of the place took over and as I saw trays full of the most amazing looking dishes being served, my stomach started growling and my mouth began to salivate. I decided that the Duke's greatest hits was the choice for me and I wasn't disappointed. I can honestly say that I have never eaten a better meal. The meat was unbelievable, the beer matched perfectly and the service outstanding. If I was ever asked to pick my last meal before I died, that would be it!!

    Meat, meat and more meat! I felt a bit like Fred Flintstone when the bbq platter arrived. There was a district lack of greens at the table, but that was probably our fault for not ordering a salad! The meat tasted incredible and the seasoned fries delicious.

    Dukes gets really busy which is no surprise because the food is amazing. We had the Greatest Hits which is a cost effective way of trying the beef and pork ribs and pulled pork. We then got chips, jalapeno mac cheese and spicy chicken wings as sdies. The wings were a little disappointing but that's probably because everything else was so delicious. We had a 7.30pm booking on saturday night and had to leave our table by 9pm which was a bit annoying. The waitress kept giving us a countdown. Twenty minutes left guys, ten minutes left guys which was a bit strange. We didn't have time for pudding but that's OK cos we didn't have room for it either and Dalston's finest night spots were calling.

    Really enjoyed the pork ribs at Dukes this Saturday and would go so far as to say that these are the best ribs I've eaten in London - and I've eaten quite a few. The mac and cheese side was also fantastic. The only downside is the turnaround time limit. Understandably it is a very busy restaurant but the dining experience would be improved if you didn't feel rushed out the door, especially with the size of the portions.

    The food is great we had the beef rib with pulled pork n ribs served with coleslaw and garlic bread, we also had chips but tbh we couldn't finish it all and wee have BIG appetites. The restaurant is definitely not for those who require a quiet night out its loud and lively which suited us fine for a Friday night out. My only quibble was we were served by too many different waiters meaning there wasn't that attention to detail which is charged for with the service charge but overall a good night!

    My husband and I are real foodies. Some might say that travelling 1 hour 20 minutes to check out a restaurant you've heard of is absurd (in our case it was featured in one of the food programmes on TV), but we count our self lucky that this is only 1 hour 20 minutes away. Ah, Duke's - awesome experience. The food was great - we loved the ribs in particular - the taste were complex - you can tell when it's been cooked for hours slo' and lo' style and we savoured every bite of it. I loved that they craft their own beer - how original! The ambience was noisy, nothing pretentious - just the way we love it. We were well looked after from the start to the end. Glad we won't have to travel to the US for great BBQs!

    Great BBQ meat - the pork ribs are especially good - and a huge selection of very fine beers. This place delivers exactly what you expect, all with a great atmosphere and good service. There is a strict 90 minute turnaround policy on tables but there is a small bar in case you want to try even more beers. They are starting to do Sunday brunch American style so I will definitely be trying that.

    Second time at Duke's, and possibly better than the first. Initially went to get some Beavertown on tap, but ended up drinking the Siren selection. Duke's Burger was very tasty, but the Big Bowser is insanely tasty and filling. Served with tasty spiced fries, it'll satisfy a big appetite. Far superior to Honest Burger, Gourmet Burger etc, it's an expensive burger, but worth it every now and then. Service is good, with friendly staff. The toilets are weird, with something of an unnecessarily cool sink, and the music selection could be a lot better. Still, good stuff. Not for vegetarians.

    I found out about dukes via following Bevertown. the platter. This was a huge beef rib, pork rib, a pile of pulled pork, a slice of garlic bread over one inch thick coleslaw and pickle. They serve it on a baking tray. The Bevertown beer list is six pages long although I know their beers well the waitress suggested some bottled beer from other world brewers. I started with a few flights which is a wooden paddle with 3 third pint glasses Smog rocket, gamma ray, neck oil, quelled saiison ,siren lmoncello, thorn bridge Chiron, omnipollo, 8 ball, little things that kill, pearl necklace, Then followed by cocktails at the bar . Big love, The GC, Dr No, Noble Art, and one called something's mistress Then I went home

    Fantastic ribs served in American portions. A portion of chilli chips was, with everything else we'd ordered, enough for all four of us. Their own beer is a reason in itself to visit this place and the Smog Rocket Smoked Porter & Gamma Ray American Pale Ale were as good as their names suggested! It was atmospheric and the staff were friendly and helpful without getting in the way. The hour and a half we were allocated for our table went by very quickly but we were able to linger by the bar and at tables outside.

    Booked here for hubby's birthday and they did not disappoint! Waited a while for drinks but it was busy so browsed the list a little more. Amazing little tasting of beers & ales from the waitress who was lovely the whole night. If you like your ribs to fall off the bone, stick with the pork as the (humongous) beef were a little dry - but still nice. Chilli cheese fries and wings were delish too! All round great night.

    We had a booking for two on a Friday night at 9pm. Atmosphere was lively but wasn't too loud, just people having a great time. We chose two pork ribs and one beef rib with mac and cheese and chilli fries on the side. This was too much for the two of us (despite being pretty good eaters), but I wouldn't have wanted to have missed out on any of the dishes - they were all delicious. The beef rib in particular is something I will definitely be going back for. Complementing this was a four page list of beers! Choosing would have been difficult but the waiting staff were able to describe the beers and made good recommendations. All round very impressed and will definitely be going back soon.

    Then the brew and que pretty much hits the spot. It's hard to get that authentic American BBQ taste in London.... but this is as good as it gets, and combined with a good selection of real ales, including the lighter, hoppier stuff that I like, makes for a great combination... recommended.
