Great Food

I always go here for lunch and the food never disappoints. I usually order the catfish po boy or the chicken salad oh it's so good and the cornbread is to die for. Make sure you get your donuts when you leave as well because those are as good as the cornbread.

We went Bobby Q and really enjoyed the food. The full rack of Baby Back Ribs were 26 bucks and worth it! The meal came with yummy cornbread,and two sides which were plentiful! We did have a 40 minute wait but people watching here was fun!! Service and food was super quick and the atmosphere is very casual and relaxed.... More

I have eaten here a few times. I thought it was time to take a moment and write a review. Because this place really sets a new standard for BBQ. Staff and service is fantastic. The manager, Laura, works hard to ensure everyone is right on top of their tables. The bartenders ensure your glass is never empty before you... More

Lots of variety, but definitely a BBQ joint for the meat lovers. Took a gang there and ordered up a few of the huge platters. Fed everyone to stuffed and still took food home. The kind of food you don't mind heating up for seconds. But the best thing on their menu for me is the Mac and Cheese side... More

Glad you've always enjoyed it here, Terry! It sounds like you're especially a fan of our service, so I'll be sure to pass this on -- the rest of the folks here will be as happy to read this as I was. Also, thanks for the compliments on our food, especially the mac & cheese -- that's a real interesting... More

Was on a business trip and tried out Bobby Q. Bit of a wait, but can be expected for a high rated restaurant. Call ahead (not sure if they take reservations or not). Food was very good and good service, just seamed a little pricey for BBQ.

They have amazing cornbread! It tasted just like the bread my grandpa made with his mother's recipe! The food was so yummy and large portions! They have a family meal deal to take home for Sunday family dinner that is a lot of food for a low price. We were only in AZ for work but if we go back... More

First make a reservation or you will never get in!!! The place was jammed with folks waiting to get a table that's how good the food was. The ribs were terrific and everything was presented very nicely. There is also a surprise ending at the conclusion of the meal that's not to be missed.

Great review, Barbara! Sorry about the crowd, but it sounds like that didn't bother you too much, so that's good to hear. I really appreciate you letting me know how much you liked everything, especially the surprise at the end of the meal, and I hope we see you again soon! Take care, Chef Mark More

Bobby Q has the absolute BEST mac and cheese! It is thick, creamy and the cheesiest. Goes great with their terrific barbeque - ribs and chicken are my favorite!

Friday night fish fry is the best! It's not all you can eat, but the portions are plenty. If you are a long time Phoenix resident, and remember Mr. Lucky's, you're in for a treat, the fish fry is the same, with a few new added sides. Their BBQ and chicken are great too!
