My husband and I were in town for our yearly spring training visit. He is a huge BBQ Rib fan, so I did a Trip Advisor search and found Bobby Q's. Absolutely fantastic! Everything about our visit was outstanding. We sat at a cool little bench seat with pillows at a table on the patio, enjoying the Phoenix weather. Our... More

Friends of our recommended Bobby Q to us, and we are so glad we took their advice. The food here is incredible - we ordered a variety of things (portion sizes are huge). All the BBQ choices were awesome, I can't say enough about how great it was. I especially enjoyed the brisket. I recommend getting platter so you can... More

We all really liked the 2 Meat Combo Platter. The BBQ was succulent, juicy, and NOT dripping with gooey, sticky sauces. I learned a lot about really good BBQ while enjoying this meal!

I had heard about this restaurant on TripAdvisor and decided to go to Bobby Q with my family while in town on spring break. It lived up to the hype. Unfortunately, we were not able to eat in the restaurant because there was a very long wait, so we just put in an order to go and got our food... More

I am a HUGE fan of BBQ. Everywhere I go on vacation I look up reviews of the best BBQ places in the area and make every effort to try them. This was one of the best experiences I have ever had. My husband, who is not quite as crazy about BBQ as I am, also said it was one... More

Heard about this place, and it lived up to the reviews. The restaurant is right on I-17, but tucked away in a neighborhood. Great Bar B Que, great atmosphere, great bar. I would recommend it highly!

They have very good BBQ. I happened to have the Catfish Po' Boy as opposed to the ribs or pulled pork. I was very good. At our table we also ordered the pulled pork sandwich and the Smoshed Chicken. Both were also very good. The pork is more of the chopped style as opposed to shredded, "pulled" type. The could... More

Sorry for the long wait, Spencer -- if you come on a weekend, I'd definitely think about making a reservation. Still, though, sounds like you had a really great time overall, which is good to know. I'll definitely keep that comment about the BBQ sauce in mind, I want everybody to have the best possible time here. All in all,... More

As we drove up to the restaurant we noticed that the neighborhood was a little skeptical but as soon as we turned into the lot we sighed a breath of relief because the place is beautiful. We walked in and the smell of real barbecue cooling was so strong and amazing; like nothing we ever experienced. Our waitress Chelsea was... More

Don't worry, we're not going anywhere anytime soon, Von. Thanks a lot for being such a fan! It's seriously great to know how much you love everything we do, and that Hog Heaven platter is one of our biggest specialties. Thanks for taking the time to write up this great review -- hope we see you again soon! Take care,... More
