I travel to PHX monthly and have always made Bobby Q's apart of my plans. Going forward that will no longer be the case .... no matter how good the food is given the rude treatment from staff I will no longer be going to Bobby Q's when I am in PHX. Bye Bye Bobby Q's xo

The wait staff here is incredible! They with the food are a great combination. Nothing like having great service then having that followed up with really great food! I'm not a big barbecue eater but came here twice while I was in town on business and the baby back ribs are the best! Really great sides too! Try the corn... More

This place is extremely busy, and for good reason, the food is amazing. The ambiance, inside and out is also great. If you're into BBQ, Bobby Q is the restaurant for you. Bring some patience, it's worth it.

Was in town for business and made plans to meet a cousin and his wife for dinner on my last night. I check TA and Yelp and this place was near the top on both. Very close to my hotel, so that sealed the deal. We had reservations and when we arrived the place was packed for dinner with a... More

We have been eating there for years. The is some of the best BBQ in the Phoenix area. Its a little hard to find but well worth the effort. My office is a couple miles away so we go for lunch a couple times a month. The food is always great and I can't tell you my favorite because I... More

OK, it is what it is. Good food and drink, decent service, friendly environment. A little too close to the freeway for a 'country' environment, but still comfortable. They have their own beer and their own bourbon...not bad. Servings are appropriately sized. If you are looking for BBQ in a relaxed setting, why not?

Glad you liked it, Chuck! Thanks for being a fan. It's true that we're kind of close to the freeway, but I hope that didn't detract too much from the experience.
