With a long history at Bobby McGees (all good), I took the wife to Bobby Q a while after they opened and it was good. Hadn't thought about it for a while though and for whatever reason, hadn't returned either. We were out with the kids on a saturday night and rolling down the 17, realized the resturaunt would be...

Daniel, I think you've made up for your previously not-so-frequent visits with this sweet review. Thanks for breaking things down and letting us know what you thought! It sounds like you and your family really enjoyed everything. A seal of approval from your boys on that salmon is huge! I will say, I'm disappointed that those veggies weren't as tasty... More

We ate here today with friends and it was an unknown place for all of us. We arrived with no expectations of anything other than decent food and good time with friends - and we left with a new favorite restaurant. First of all, our waiter was Jack and he set the tone for our entire dining experience. He absolutely... More

Its a good place to dance, hear music & hang out. But prices to high, each bartender charges different, waitresses not friendly & very slow. One waitress very good not sure her name. Bouncers are very mean for no reason & are always flirting not paying attention. Use to be our hangout not no more

Sorry to see this, Frankee. Sounds like you're talking more about Q Lounge than Bobby Q, though I apologize if you haven't had a good time at the former. Thanks for letting me know--we'll work on getting back to the place you're used to. Cheers, Chef Mark More

We ate here during vacation when we had the craving for some good BBQ. Not only was the food great but the service was the best we have had in a long time. Mateo was filling our drinks before we asked, spotted an error in my wife's salad and had it changed without hesitation or her even having to say... More

As a frequent visitor to the US I am still constantly astonished at the portion sizes, and a visit to Bobby Q merely reinforced my European prejudices...the sight of all that food is terrifying! However, the BBQ meat is simply superb, and I managed to put in a very respectable showing for my US hosts by consuming heaven knows how... More

A business team member stumbled upon Bobby Q after a luke warm recommendation from our local hotel. The only indication we were given was "well, at least its not a chain". Although true, what an understatement! We had delicious pulled pork, mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, pulled chicken, and frosted lemonade. They also provide free fresh mini doughnuts that are...

I had heard so much about this place so I decided to try it. I usually get pulled pork but this time I tried the beef brisket, it did not disappoint at all!!!! So good!!! It was fork tender and juicy. Also tried the banana pudding and that was amazing as well! The crust on that is to die for!!!... More

Terrific Barbecue joint. Lots of atmosphere, definitely need a reservation. Baby Back Ribs melted off the bone, french fries and roasted corn great adds. Not a big selection of Micro-Beers, bit a few good ones. Don't go to this restaurant if you are in a rush, too busy to move fast. Sat at the bar and had OK service.

Had a combo plate with brisket and bbq chicken, both of which were delicious. Nice sized portions, though probably higher than average cost for good barbeque. The staff seemed friendly across the board and my server was very attentive. The staff was also dressed up for Halloween, which was entertaining. Note that the main entrance is on the left side...
