It is ranked #3 already so it doesn't need my review at all. I didn't know this place existed until Mom suggested it for a birthday dinner after a Fall League game in Mesa instead of driving to Wickenburg. Glad she did. I recognized the place when we pulled in as I used to go there when it was Bobby... More

Bobby Q's is a great place to enjoy a real BBQ meal. Being from the North East, real BBQ is a rarity. I was able to treat myself by going to Bobby Q's. The food was excellent and the service was top notch. The draft beer selection wasn't the most impressive, but everything else you look for in a local... More

We stopped in for dinner after flying into PHX on our way to Sedona. I had read the phenomenal reviews on TA and was excited to see what the fuss was all about. We were greeted right away and seated at a table in the center of the restaurant. The atmosphere was casual but still very nice. We ordered the... More

Glad your fellow Trip Advisors didn't steer you wrong, April! Thanks for the kind words. Happy you got to try the mac and cheese, too--pretty flattering to hear it's "OUT OF THIS WORLD!" I really do appreciate you visiting and sharing your experience. If you do find yourselves back in Phoenix, come say hello! Cheers, Chef Mark More

This is the real deal. If you're looking for good, down home barbecue, this is the place! The portions are huge, the sauce is put in a pitcher right on the table so you can add more if you'd like. The pulled pork is great but try the beef ribs--should be called brontosaurus ribs because they are that big--They are... More

My husband and I just moved to Phoenix and have been searching for unique restaurants. We have been disappointed, until we recently visited Bobby Q's. They met all the qualities we try to find for a 5 star restaurant: fun atmosphere, reasonably priced, great service, big portions, and quality food. I can't wait to come back and bring my whole...

This restaurant was right next to our hotel, but we still checked out the reviews (#2 in Phoneix!) so we were very pleased to find a restaurant with good location and reviews. It was obviously popular with the locals, and lots of repeat customers. We sat at a bar table, found the "house" ale to be a good choice to... More

Business traveler in Phoenix: I saw this restaurant on TripAdvisor and thought it would be worth the trip out. There were multiple claims of "best steak ever!" in the reviews. I love steak so I was looking forward to it. Unfortunately, every piece of my meal was seasoned with the same spicy, woody flavor. I've had better steak at Texas... More
