The Q-Grill has only been around a short time, but it has quickly become one of the favorite lunch spot for folks in Dickinson.

Tamatha, or ’T’ as she likes to be called, moved to Regent four years ago from Finley, Wash. with her fiancé Gary and her three children Phynix, Gaven and Alex.  The five of them moved to Regent so Gary could work in the oil fields, but they never envisioned Dickinson would be the place their dreams came true.

’T’ has been a cook for over 25 years, and it was always her dream to open her own restaurant.  One night last summer, she was sitting around the grill with Gary and their friend James when the conversation led to talk that James could procure a food truck.  While it was said almost in passing, ’T’ realized this could be her opportunity to finally see her dream realized.  Soon they began discussing all the details that go into opening a food truck, and a short while later the Q-Grill was open for business.

’T’ has the knowledge (having been in the food industry for a quarter of a century), but it was Gary who taught her how to truly become an expert at barbecue.

While the two of them know food, they needed James’ help and connections to really get this project off the ground.  The three of them teamed up, and they haven’t looked back since.

The Q-Grill is located at 4434 3rd Ave W, in the Andrus Outdoors parking lot.  They are open Tuesday through Friday, and every other Saturday, serving breakfast at 6:30 a.m. and switching over to lunch at 10:30 a.m. There is no close time, as they are only open until they run out of food, which is usually around 2 p.m.

As of right now, they are only open during the summer months, but with customers lining up around the block to get a taste of their delicious food (like the smoked burger, which they sell 100 of each day), it won’t be long until the next step of the dream becomes reality, to get out of the food truck and into an actual storefront.
