Loved it! Three meat sampler was exceptional. Pork, ribs, and brisket. YUMMY QUICK lunch service and comfortable settings. Only negative, the hall to the restrooms needs better ventilation. Will definitely be back!

Found this gem from a few recommendations. Decided to go and watch Monday Night Football in the bar area. Decent beer selection. Ordered the three meat sample of brisket, beef ribs, baby back ribs. Couldn't finish all of it. Least favorite was the beef ribs, but that is only because the other two overshadowed them. At the end they give... More

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!"
