“Taste of Phoenix!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

Definitely one of the best barbecue I ever ate! All dishes come with a amazing corn muffin. There is only one problem, 30 minutes to wait a table, at least!

Wow -- thanks so much, Thiago! It's great to read we're near the top of your list when it comes to BBQ joints -- that's a big compliment, and I'm glad you enjoyed it so much. We do our best to get everyone seated as quickly as possible, but if you're in a hurry, you may want to consider making a reservation through OpenTable next time. Hope to see you soon!

Best,
Chef Mark

Excellent staff! They were very friendly and did a wonderful job with our party of 8 and an infant! The food was truly amazing! Best BBQ I have had in years! I can't wait to bring visiting family here!

“Amazing food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

Upon doing some research on Phoenix here on Tripadvisor, I found Bobby Q's and decided to go there for dinner. The staff is very nice and the food is amazing, I had the burger with shoe string fries.

They send you home with some free mini doughnuts, which is great and they tasted really nice too!

Great experience. Lived up to my expectations. Ribs, Brisket, and chicken were excellent. Fantastic service. We've been to lots of barbecue places. This moves in beside Montgomery Inn in Cincinnati.

Thanks, Jeff! It sounds like you got to skip right to dessert when you came to see us, and I'm glad the donuts was a tasty way to start your meal. I also appreciate the feedback regarding the ribs, chicken and assorted sides, and I'll make sure to let my team here know that it all came out tasting great to you. Next time you're in the area, be sure to stop by and say hello!
