|The Q Spot is the family business of Eric and Niecola Roberts.
Eric, who was born in Texas, has done many things in his life --
including boxing, operating restaurants, and riding bulls
professionally...though he prefers his bones intact, so he decided to
leave them bulls alone. "Restauranting" is in his blood. His

business full time preparing the two foods they loved the most,
Texas style BBQ and Shrimp...and the rest is history.
