“I want to have Bobby Q's baby!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

Wow! My 1st time here & Nicole our waitress was wonderful explaining everything to me. I started with a "voga" white wine, fantastic & then the corn bread almost put me over the edge! I opted for the brisket sandwich & mashed potatoes....brilliant! My husband had a rib-eye, cooked to perfection with mac & cheese (which I tasted, my heaven will cosist of that mac & cheese) & potato salad. The service & food was some of the best I have had, ever. Already planning our next visit. We love you Bobby Q's!

“Very dissapointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

We probably won't be returning to this place. We arrived without a reservation but had only a short wait however once seated it was downhill. The "special" margarita was undrinkable, when the busboy dropped silverware down my back it he just kept going, no one ever came to see if I was ok or to offer to clean up my shirt, we had to ask for silverware and one of my companians got sick. Not a good experience.

Thanks for joining us at Bobby Q! I'm sorry to hear that your experience was a disappointment. We train our staff here to always let a manager know if there are any problems on our floor. I'm sorry that no action was taken to fix the problems you encountered while dinning with us. We will be following up with our staff to make sure that any problem with a customer is taken care of no matter how big or small. We serve hundreds of customers here at Bobby Q's everyday and we had no other food complaints. However we do use a vast variety of spices here in our foods which some people may be sensitive to. I'm very sorry about your experience and we would love to offer you a dinner on us! Please contact our General Manager Laura Hogan at 602-995-5982!

Hope to see you soon!

“Not generally my favorite type of food but this was great.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013 via mobile

Went to Bobby Q's with a group of friends last night & was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. The waiter was great even though 8 of us asked for separate checks. He was pleasant, attentive & efficient. Not always the reaction when separate checks are requested.
The brisquette with mac & cheese & stir fry vegies sides was fantastic! I've really temoved red meat in my diet and I could "leave it" more than I can "take it." But I'll hit this place again.

“Delish.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

We made our reservation on Open Table and we were immediately seated on a busy Friday night.
We were warmly greeted by our server Jeff ( who recently returned from 6 years in the service with 2 tours of dury in Afghanistan which we found out when we chatted with him--- thank you for your service to our country).
We enjoyed the ribs--- moist, tasty and delicous. The smoked prime rib was excellent- the best ever tasted ! The fresh homemade mini donuts brought at the end of the meal was a nice touch.
The service and food were top notch.
We would certainly choose Booby Q's if if were closer than 2,200 miles from home.
