Nice atmosphere and spacious. Plenty of room for any type of mobility apparatus. I had the ribs, and did I mention the beer is ice cold.

Went there with the family one night cause we were staying at a nearby hotel. Asked the front desk where to get some good food and he mentioned Bobby q. The place was a little dark inside but the food and service was awesome. Would definitely go back

My daughter and I ate here many times. We always choose the "Whole Hog Heaven," macaroni and cheese side, along with baked beans. We chose to eat on the well lit patio and it was wonderful. The service is fantastic, as you always have several waiters asking you if you're alright, need anything else, need a doggy bag, etc.

Actually asked for some cornbread cakes to take to our neighbor they were were so good. Our waitress was very busy so did not get the attention we needed when we needed something but she was nice and... More

Having lived in both Texas and Kansas City, I have an idea of what BBQ should taste like. This place hits the marks. I am a regular here. You really can't go wrong with anything you order. The ribs and brisket are my favorite. The chicken and pulled pork are excellent as well. The mac-n-cheese is a must for your... More

Bobby Q's has a unique "old brick" environment and casual ambiance that greatly enhances a fine menu and excellent service! The food offerings are much more varied than one would normally expect of a BBQ restaurant; the bar area is most inviting; the outside dining tables provide excellent open-air eating options; and the large parking lot eliminates the obvious hassles...

You can't miss with any menu item at Bobby Q. I've dined in and catered luncheons to my physician office customers as a pharmaceutical rep with Bobby Q. Nothing but positive reviews from my Docs and their staff (and they can be tough critics). My dine in favorite menu item is the smoked prime rib--phenomenal. They even put out a... More

I'm from Texas so I don't give good BBQ complements often! Had the baby back ribs, roasted corn and string fries. All very good. Food was delivered too quickly after appetizers so you may wish to slow it down a bit. Frozen lemonade is outstanding.

Mark H, Manager at Bobby Q, responded to this review

Bob, coming from a Texan this review really means a lot to me, so thank you for writing it! I'm so glad you enjoyed everything, though I'm sorry if you felt rushed at all. Looks like you still really had a great time here and I hope we'll see you around again soon! Take care, Chef Mark More
