very good BBQ. The food is consistently good with great dipping sauce. Great value , lots of food you could share. Full meals come with two unlimited side dishes (yes I said unlimited) Every day there is a special. If your a big eater Mondays are all you can eat. If your not a pork lover they do offer fish...

Ordered a bunch of take out everything from ribs pulled pork and brisket. Everything we had was great and their sauce is even better. If you're in Mesa stop by and try it you won't be disappointed even though it is a little place

Always great service and excellent food. We had our wedding reception/dinner here 5 years ago. We now check in about once a month. Food and service is always great. Highly recommended.

great food and I loved the endless side. I got the cherry lemonade and it was sweet with a little tart (just like i like) They brought me extra sauce because I love my pulled pork sandwiches super saucy. I would go back here in a heartbeat if i am ever in mesa again

Let's be honest-Mesa is not known for its BBQ. but Waldo's resolves my BBQ cravings. They have good ribs, pork, and brisket. The turkey had little flavor. Prices are great, and it is a fun place to meet another couple for dinner.

Noise, family place with great food. Be sure to order the horseradish mashed and corn bread. If you're lucky, you'll get David as your waiter - he's a hoot! Oh, the peach cobbler is incredible - save room for dessert!

A fun BBQ place with kitschy signs and things hanging on the walls. Real good basic BBQ food. Not a bad value for the price.
