I've hosted several large groups here and everyone had excellent reviews. The ribs seem to come out on top but the prime rib, chicken, and brisket are also great.

Bobby Q's has been around forever. The reason is because the food is top notch and the BBQ sauce is out of this world. The service was excellent and we never had to wait for refills of anything. Great service, Great food!

This barbecue joint is one of the fancier BBQ restaurants you visit and that's because the owner focuses on attention to detail. He's been in the business for many years and evidence of his skills is in the food... as well as the ambiance. The barbecue entrees are fantastic Our experience with the wait-staff was excellent and it's a place... More

An associate told me this place has great BBQ. I told him I would be the judge. Waitress was very proud of their BBQ ratings. I ordered the sliced brisket. Came with a little sauce and she said she would bring more. The sauce was the only thing close to BBQ. The meat was pot roast at best. She came... More

The atmosphere is old school Phoenix 80s before the internet and technology took over the afternoon social scene. When people shared conversations over great food and drinks. Bring your personality and refresh your mind with friends or go and make friends. It is a great change from the usual cookie cutter ambiance.

This is a lively place, where there's almost always a wait to get in. But wait, because I promise you, it will be worth it. The meats are perfectly cooked and/or smoked. You cannot get a bad meal here, it just doesn't exist. Great ribs, brisket and steak. If you're in the east valley like I am, its a hike.... More
