Quaint little BBQ joint in downtown Emporia. Had ribs, cheesy potatoes, broccoli salad, and blackberry cobbler. Everything was delicious!!! Service was friendly and super-fast. Highly recommend!

Excellent food. The ribs were really good, as was the Burnt Ends dinner, and the cheesy potatoes! OMG!!! So good! They had a blackberry cobbler on the menu that we were dying to try but unfortunately they didn't have any left that evening which tells me...it's probably pretty darn good!

Every meal I've eaten was good. The barbeque ribs were a pleasant surprise. Good clean family restaurant. The price is very affordable.

This place has been serving up pulled pork, ribs, brisket and smoked turkey for years. They have great cheesy potatoes, and they offer Fanestil baked beans which are made locally too. They stay busy but you can usually get a table pretty quick. Priced right and prepared well!

I order from Bobby D's for carry out occasionally because they are quick to get your order ready and it's so tasty! The restaurant is fun to be at with a group of friends, but gets filled up pretty easily on the weekends/evenings. The brisket here is sooo incredibly delicious!

This place was AMAZING! The customer service was stellar... from the time you walk in the door to the time you pay your ticket, the staff was conscious of our group. The food came out quickly - and was DELICIOUS!

Love the BBQ brisket sandwich, with cheesy potatoes and the broccoli raisin salad. So good! Really haven't had a bad meal there.

Always great food and service. Good prices for adults and children both. Often greeted by owner or manager to visit and ask how food is. Great servers and cooks. Clean bathrooms even decorated. Nice clean and easy to read menu even added few new items.
