I took a client to Bobby Q for a tasting for an upcoming event. The meat was fabulous and the sides were huge! I never heard of this place before the tasting and would say this is the best BBQ I had in AZ!

You just know it's a great bbq place when most of the patrons for lunch are men! My girlfriend had been talking about this place so we decided to go for lunch. It was everything she said and more! Don't miss it

The food was good and the people were great. It is in a location that is hard to get to. The parking lot is a bit concerning at night.

Edward, thank you! Glad you enjoyed your visit. I'm sorry if the parking lot seemed at all unsafe, though -- we'll see if there's anything we can do to improve that. Take care, Chef Mark More

Great atmosphere. You have to have the Q ROLLS appetizers, they are to die for. Great bar, the bartenders will make any drink you can imagine. At the end of your meal, they bring you freshly made on the spot, mini cinnamon donuts. They even give you extra as you walk out just for asking.
