Always a wonderful meal and excellent service! The meats have so much flavor before any sauce goes on, which is how it's supposed to be done! Definitely try their selection of Bourbons as well, definitely tasty addition to any of their meats!

To begin with the greeting staff person was terrifically friendly and welcoming, and the server, Chelsea, was even better! The terrific hot cornbread and fresh brewed iced tea were excellent starters. We decided to share a wedge salad...glad we shared because it was quite large. Very tasty! We each had a baked potato which came with our choice of meats... More

Really fun location and a bit on the loud side. It is not your typical BBQ pit. The menu is large with a great selection of steaks, chops, salads and smoked meat offerings. The brisket was juicy and tender. It was served chunk style. If you like Mac n cheese, then do not miss it here. It is creamy goodness.... More

Glad you were a fan! We're proud of our mac n cheese here (in addition to our meats, of course), so I'm really happy you enjoyed. I do want to apologize for spilling on your co-worker's boots, but I'll share your compliments with the team. Hope to see you again if you're ever back in town! Best, Chef Mark More

We stopped in Phoenix on our way to the airport. I had found the restaurant on Trip Advisor and thought that the reviews warranted a stop for lunch. The food and service was great!

A little out of the way and difficult to get to, a GPS is a great tool to direct you to Bobby Q. It's well worth it, everything is amazing.

We split the BBQ sampler with brisket, sausage, and ribs and everything was amazing. The meat fell off the ribs, the sausage had the perfect spice, and the brisket was as tender as I've tasted. Great spot, we'll be back.

Large portions for decent price. Ribs were delicious and fall off the bone. They drown everything in way too much bbq sauce.Smokehouse burger which the servers highly recommended were too greasy for my teenage son to eat it. Nice ambience.
