Great pulled chicken

For lunch my daughter and I ordered pulled chicken quesadilla and a pulled chicken club sandwich with cheesy potatoes both were very good and portions were large, leftovers made a very yummy second meal.

Great food! Super great sandwiches and ribs. I really like the fried Okra, just like my granny used to make us! Their cheesy potatos are wonderful also. My sons really like the delicious sandwiches as well. Their favorite sides are the fries without the spices.

I eat there often. It is good BBQ and they also have a selection of other items. Always busy. Their cheesy potatoes is a favorite of all.

I have always enjoyed the food I have eaten at Bobby D's. Their Cheesy Potatoes are a favorite side dish.

Asked local gal at a retail store where to go for bbq. Bobby D's was the answer. First night prime rib. Perfect. Great blue cheese on my salad also. Had to go back for bbq for dinner tonight. Had ribs n pulled pork. Pork was better than the ribs. Two sauce choices and both are excellent. Blackberry cobbler was home... More

Excellent bbq, great service. I spent several weeks working in Emporia, and ate here a few times. I was never disappointed. The meats were all great and the cheesy potatoes were awesome! I will definitely drop in for a meal if I'm in town again.

This is a small, cozy restaurant with amazing BBQ. My husband is hooked on the ribs, I love the pulled pork and our grown kids love the brisket. The grandkids can always find something they like to eat at Bobby D's. It's all great. I haven't had their steaks, but have heard that they are the best. The only problem... More

Been to Bobby D's several times since moving to Emporia. Always friendly service, but not the fastest. Food is mostly good...never had a bad side and only one time had some tough rib tips. Everything else has always been excellent. Cheesy potatoes are a must! It can be quite crowded at times because it is a good, simple, hometown feel... More

We're driving from Mn to Tx....Emporia was a good place to stay. Thanks to TripAdvisor reviews we had the best ribs I've ever had! Service was good. We had the sample platter to try all of the meats...they were all amazing...ham, turkey, pork, brisket. Only 1 rib so we ordered a extra order...truly the best
