We eat at Bobby Q on a regular basis and never had a bad meal. Yesterday I had the brisket sandwich and my wife had the baby back ribs. Her ribs were fall off the bone, and my brisket was excellent. The service was first rate even if the restaurant was completely full at 7pm.

Enjoyed the Friday happy hour ... then it got a little dull and then picked back up again around 10, with a younger crowd later in the night

Baby backs, brisket, sausage all very good. Maybe best BBQ we've had in Phoenix. We've had Gates and Salt Lick and this BBQ is different and very good. Had to eat baby backs with a fork when the meat fell off the bone. Nice touch was hot cinnamon mini doughnuts at end of meal. Busy place so recommend reservations. Used... More

Great BBQ. Great steaks Excellent grilled veggies. Priced right. Free donuts after the meal. Only downside: When it gets busy or near full, hostess staff has a difficult time to seat people. I have been waiting a couple times and been skipped over. Overall food great

I'm relocating to Phoenix and I had dinner here with my new boss. I can't wait to go back once my move is complete. The ribs were "fall off the bone" delicious and sauced to perfection; beef brisket was also out of this world.

Had dinner here one evening. Excellent Mac and cheese as a side dish. Great baby back ribs and brisket. Good BBQ. I would eat here again.

Lots of hype. It was good tender smoked brisket. The ribs and pork was nothing too write home about. If you never get to experience Texas, KC and OK BBQ then you can easily see the high reviews. The restaurant was nice, service was outstanding. I just don't think it is best BBQ in the U.S. The best places are... More

I had the brisket sandwich and was stunned at how good it was. Listen, I'm from Alabama ya'll and it's nearly blasphemy to say that the best barbecue I've ever had came from.....Arizona?!?! I can't help it. It was ridiculous. The sauce was tremendous and the meat was so tender and the bread was great also. I can't recommend this... More

Thanks a lot, TitanShane. It's great to read that you're such a fan of the food we're cooking up here. I realize Alabama has it's fair share of great BBQ, so it means a lot to see that we're still at the top of your list. Thank you again -- next time you're in the area, I hope you'll stop... More

Where do I start?! This PLACE IS AWESOME!!! Once you navigate to the location -it right in the middle of a residential neighborhood - you will be amazed at the various well shaded patios, the huge dining area where you can view 40 chickens on rotisserie, and separate rocking bar and dance area. Bobby Q's has it all and we... More

My husband and I dined here Monday, March 24th. We arrived without a reservation and were lucky enough to wait only 30 minutes for a table. Definitely make a reservation!
