Had lunch with a crew of guys during a busy day. The brisket was . .ok not the best but ok, one of the guys had the chicken wings and couldn't finish because they were so big, they didn't go to waste. In the KC area you expect wonderful bbq. This bbq is good in other parts of the country... More

The best barbeque ever and friendly service as well. I always take my out-of-town guests to this Emporia icon. I like that you add your own sauce to the meats so I can have as little or much, spicy or mild -- my choice. Great choice of sides. Their daily specials are good too. I especially like the meat loaf... More

Even our family from Texas thinks the BBQ from Bobby D's is better than what they get back home. We've never been disappointed by the food or service. Worth a try if you are in town and want some great BBQ!

So who could complain? Not me! We just had our first meal at Bobby D's, and we're way past stuffed -- big servings of very good BBQ, excellent baked beans, slaw, etc., etc. . . . .the place was packed when we got there, and we had to wait maybe 5 minutes, but the service was quick and attentive. I'd... More

We attended a wedding and Bobby D's catered the food. They served pulled pork, brisket, baked beans, coleslaw, cheesy potatoes, and warm cobblers. I am picky about my BBQ and coleslaw and I must say they hit the mark on all points! I had to try a little of all of it and I was more than satisfied. The different... More

Had lunch this past Saturday while passing through from Texas to Iowa on a road trip. Made a special stop based upon TA reviews provided. Place was very busy (good sign), service was quick and friendly, but food was average. The sampler contained a mix of meats with the pulled items being the best. The ham was extremely bland bland...

This a casual, comfy type restaurant with extremely friendly waitstaff. The food is good. I had ribs and cheesy potatoes. My husband had brisket. No complaints.
