Definitely one of the best barbecue I ever ate! All dishes come with a amazing corn muffin. There is only one problem, 30 minutes to wait a table, at least!

Upon doing some research on Phoenix here on Tripadvisor, I found Bobby Q's and decided to go there for dinner. The staff is very nice and the food is amazing, I had the burger with shoe string fries. They send you home with some free mini doughnuts, which is great and they tasted really nice too!

Great experience. Lived up to my expectations. Ribs, Brisket, and chicken were excellent. Fantastic service. We've been to lots of barbecue places. This moves in beside Montgomery Inn in Cincinnati.

We stopped at Bobby Q for dinner. Great food. They smoked and aged their meats on premises and it makes big difference. I ordered beef ribs Texas style and it tasted superbly
