Meet the Man on the Grill

Quentin Keys II, Founder and Owner of 75 South BBQ & Event Catering. At 25 years old Quentin decided he needed a career that would allow him to leave a legacy, something he was passionate about. Quentin, originally from St. Petersburg, Florida, relocated to Detroit Michigan in 2005. Quentin began selling Smoked BBQ at the corner of Six Mile, and Barlow on the East side of Detroit in early 2015. From there it would never stop, Quentin received raving reviews from the community on the way he slowly smoked his meats, and how his Southern Soul Sides reminded them of their Great-Grandmother. Quentin decided in 2016 to "Step Out On Faith" and put 100% of his time and energy into creating his legacy, to that was the Birth of 75 South BBQ & Event Catering. 75 South BBQ was named because as a kid, Quentin would visit Detroit, and when it was time to go home, his dad, Quentin Sr. would take interstate 75 South back to the Tampa Bay Area! 

Quentin lives by the Motto "No Risk...No Reward." Quentin has two beautiful children who enjoy helping in the lab (kitchen) Ezabella (9) and Chancellor (3)
