Food was great!

Bobby Q is located right off of I-17 in a "non-traditional" area, but no worries. The food ia excellent, and they have both indoor and outdoor dining. Service was great, even on the patio.

My wife and I visited Bobby Q in early August. It was our third or fourth time there. The atmosphere was fun and the food is as good as it gets. And our server, Alexis was terrific. We will return to Bobby Q again and again when we visit Phoenix. Five stars and then some.

We were on our way to a baseball game. Server got our food right out. Cooked to perfection! Enjoyed the pulled pork sandwich and mac-n-cheese. Great service, fun atmosphere and the donuts are the best.

We had 4 couples that had never been to Bobby Q's and we all wanted to try it. We went early and sat in the bar for happy hour drinks. And because of the size of our group, we heard it gets busy and we wanted to reserve a table for 8. Everyone loved their meals. I would have given... More

The food here is good but we went on a Sunday for lunch and the least expensive item on the menu was a sandwhich for $11.00 . No lunch specials or anything smaller. I wanted ribs but did not want to pay $26 for ribs for lunch - I just wanted a couple. The food is good but just thought... More

Hey Tracey, thank you for the feedback. First of all, I'm really happy to know you enjoy the food. I'm sorry you feel it's too expensive, though. While we do charge a slight premium, we feel that the quality of the meat and the care we take in preparing each dish make it worthwhile. Still, I understand where you're coming... More

Definitely a great place to get some amazing bbq. It is a more formal sit down restaurant but absolutely amazing. There food is amazing. I love the corn bread you get with your food. We've tried the bbq sampler with 3 different meats with the beef brisket, bbq ribs and the bbq chicken. It was amazing. The brisket is sooo... More

I had a gift certificate for this place, so decided to try it out. First impression - hard to find, nothing indicates that the place is there. From the outside, the facility looks a bit disarranged, the air around the restaurant did not have this wonderful smell of smoked meat but rather a slight dumpster odor mixed with tobacco smoke...

I'm pretty surprised about the smell you noticed, most people can smell the "delicious Smoked meats from the freeway!" Thanks for your feedback, and I hope you will give us another try sometime. Best, Chef Mark More
