“AHHHMMAAZING!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

I seriously love BBQ food and this place was INCREDIBLE! I had the baby back ribs which were lean and super tender. The sides are great as well. Service rocked & good prices! I will be back when we travel back to Arizona again :)

“Loved It”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

We had research this restaurant before we left Minnesota and found the menu online (It was not the same) The brisket was so good I just loved it. My husband got the rotisserie chicken and thought it was so so. I told him you don't come to a BBQ place and order that. (LOL) He had some of my brisket and thought it was very good. The slaw was good not great but good. You get free mini donuts when you leave. The restaurant was clean and big. Very Nice. The waitress was over zealous and told us everything on the menu was out of this world. (too cheerful for me)
It is in a seedy part of town you can spot it from the highway. Otherwise Bobby Q is a really nice choice for BBQ.

“Great steak and wonderful value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

This is my second visit to Bobby Q...the first one was several years ago. I ordered a ribeye steak and it was tender and flavorful. For $25 I got the steak and two sides and I found it to be a great value for a $25 steak. It is a step up from Outback and Texas Roadhouse, but about the same price. I sat at the bar and the bartender was very attentive and friendly. One of my sides was the mac and cheese and I can honestly say that it was some of the cheesiest, and therefore some of the best that I have had.

“Great Find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

Recently my husband and I were seeking BBQ and found Bobby Qs. Wow what a find! Had AMAZING baby back ribs and BBQ brisket! Truly fabulous! Also had very filling but delicious Mac and Cheese! And after filling up on this wonderful meal with no room for dessert, warm mini cinnamon donuts came with our bill! What a great surprise and ending to a great meal! We will be back!

“Love the food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

This restaurant for years was themed as a 50's retro and was good. It closed for a while and the owners decided to convert it to a barbeque place, traveling afar to search out recipes and flavor that they perceived to be the best. In my opinion, they nailed it. My wife is a much bigger fan of barbeque taste, me not so much a fan. This is the best I have ever had.
The flavor is great, the meat is tender, the menu choices are broad, and the side dishes really compliment the entrees. As others have noted the portions are very ample, unless you are a big eater, you will have wonderful take out as well.
The service has always been good and that was the case on our most recent visit. When the weather fits, the patio area is a nice option, sometimes a little freeway noise but not distracting.
It is a little obscure by location, it is worth looking for.
