After hearing about the best tasting bbq around, I decided to give it a try. Wow! I was not disappointed. The meat just pulled right off the bone and was so tender and delicious. It is a great place to go for good food with friends or family.

Not surprised that Bobby Q's is one of the top restaurants in trip advisor Phoenix! The food, atmosphere & service were all excellent. The best Mac and cheese I've ever had and definitely a side you should order. Next time we are in the Phoenix area we will definitely be back!

Being from Kansas City, I have a pretty good idea of what good BBQ is....and the brisket that I had at Bobby Q certainly fit the bill. The atmosphere is not what would might expect from a BBQ joint, but one doesn't 'eat' the atmosphere....only the food. My wife had the pulled pork....too fatty for her, however.

Our party of 6 was seated promptly on a busy Friday night. The service was so attentive, you would have thought we were the only people in the place. The food was fantastic and the prices very reasonable. Hot cinnamon sugar donuts for a gratis dessert made it an over-the-top experience. We will definitely go back soon.

Overall, a decent. place to eat, not a fan of their shoestring fries. but overall, decent. The wait staff is cordial, at least the couple of times I have been there they have been. Prices are a little high, but seem to be in the range for most restaurants in Phoenix. I would recommend.

Amazing corn bread, then the actual meal offering juicy, tasty and delicious beef BBQ. The service was great and at the end we got freshly made, tiny funnel cakes. I am just happy that I do not live close by, otherwise, I would be there every day!

Just by a chance glance of where to eat on my cell phone, we checked this place out. Unbelievably delicious!!! I have had BBQ down south, but this is equally as delicious if not better!

We tried Bobby-Q and had to go again during the same week! The BBQ was excellent and even the non-BBQ folks in our group thought it was good. I had their Texas Beef ribs and they were not only leaner but also just as tender as I've had any where else. Their Q-rolls are a must, if you like the... More
