About
Bobby D's BBQ is located in the Historic English Kitchen Restaurant building, Arizona's oldest operating restaurant building (est. 1899). Stepping through our doors is like stepping back in time. Imagine sitting on an original bar stool from 1899. If only these walls could talk! We are a 90% scratch kitchen, family owned and operated. All of our meats are hand trimmed, rubbed and smoked on premise. We have delicious sandwiches, fresh salads, and entrees. The specialty of the house is our slow-smoked, baby back ribs, they literally fall off the bone. We also feature a full bar, 6 microbrews on draft from our sister brewery The Belfry and a full service outdoor deck with bar.

We did not see anything paranormal, but the bbq was out of this world. The cheese cornbread was also extremely delicious and on top of all different sauces to try with your meat. The staff is super friendly and we had an awesome time. I...do recommend to leave space in your tummy for cheesecakeMore

Husband got the Reuben and I got a pulled pork. We didn’t like our food. We may be in the minority but he said his wasn’t very good and my sandwich was like cut up chunks of meat. It wasn’t pulled pork. Maybe we just...needed to get something else. But the place was clean and our server was very nice. And it’s a cute place.More

Bobby D’s serves up some excellent BBQ! The sauces are also terrific, with the Bone Lickin’ Mustard as my favorite! I also love the beans and cornbread. We will definitely be back soon!

Superb service which has been rare since the pandemic. Server really knew their offerings so could guide our choices. Food was excellent and the atmosphere was quite pleasant as we took a little break from exploring the town of Jerome.

We were here for lunch on a Sunday. First off, Jerome is very busy on weekends. Parking is a struggle. But once you have found a place to park, this BBQ is terrific. The pulled pork sandwich was really good. And they make their own...BBQ sauces, ranging from mild/traditional to more spicy sauces. French fries were great. Portion sizes are large. We got there about 11:45 AM and were able to walk right in. By the time we left, the wait was about 40 minutes. There is both indoor and outdoor seating.More

Rolled into Jerome around noon hungry for lunch but not the usual fare, something unique to a ghost town, and boy did we find it. The super friendly servers guided us through each of their specialty bbq plates helped us choose, along with ice cold...beer in a saloon style mug. And don’t forget the beans!More
