    Antique storm shutters, silver place setting lamps, & castle doors from Prescott are just a couple of the details that make up the ambiance. Food is why you come though, and portions are generous and the BBQ is top notch. The ribs could be served as a desert as they are succulent and delicate to the touch. The smoked prime rib is to die for, with a salt and pepper rub on the outside and smoke on the inside. The complimentary corn bread may have been the star of the show, if I didn't so love my side of mac-a-cheese and smoked corn off the cob. Sauces were amazing but really an after thought due to the flavor in every bite. When I think BBQ I typically think local dive, but why? Bobby Qs makes BBQ fine dining and I was amazed at the results.

    Enjoyed our evening out as a family. Daughter in from College - she liked the pulled pork and my wife enjoyed the prime rib. I had the BBQ baby backs and they fell off the bone - maybe a little too much as I couldn't pick them up to eat them - had to use a knife and fork. Service was lousy - girl was incompetent as she was always confused when she came by the table. Then when clearing the table - which she did in a 15 minute period clearing one person at a time though we were all done - she spilled the contents of one plate on me. Go for the food - be tolerant of the service

    Great bbq! And good barbeque is hard to find in Phoenix. Really nice atmosphere. The brisket, mac and cheese and corn bread are awesome. The cole slaw was about the best I've had too. Service was phenomenal. Server explained the menu and gave recommendations. She was very accomodating for our toddler too.

    The food was really good (a bit overpriced) but holy cow the service! I have never had too much service in my life before this meal. I went with a group of friends I had not seen in a while, and we really couldn't get a conversation going! every time we would start talking again (after being interrupted again and again asking how we were doing) she would come back and interrupt us while we were speaking to ask if we were ok. It started to really irritate me and my guests and to top it all off only seconds after being interrupted by the waitress we were interrupted again by the MANAGER! TOO MUCH BOTHERING GUESTS IS NO GOOD! The server & manager interrupted us at least 15 times during the 2 hours we were there.

    The barbeque brisket and meats are great. Macaroni is good, other items so so. Our waiter was very nice, but he kept forgetting things and he had drooped our drinks. I think he was new. It was a little hot and i think a night club was going on because the music was very loud.

    Bobby Q is definitely a good barbecue spot in Phoenix. Don't expect to lose weight at this restaurant nor get a good selection of vegetables. However, for good ribs and mac n cheese, then you have come to right spot. Friendly people.

    We're not new to B-Qs and this place remains our top choice for steak and ribs. I love the macncheese...kids love the burgers. Nice place to be for a casual nite out or dressed up for a special event. Husband orders his ribeye cooked medium but charred on the outside and he says he hasn't been let down yet! Good portions leave enough for lunch the next day and the cinnamon donuts at the end are worth saving room for! I love bringing out of towners to this place to show off how Phoenix does BBQ!

    This place is amazing! It is hard to believe that a place with BBQ this good is located near downtown Phoenix. It's definitely a must try for AZ residents as well as people who are visiting from out of town. Be sure to order the Whole Hog Heaven... you won't be disappointed! The portion sizes are unbelievable and the service.. oh the service... I cannot remember the last time I have been to a restaurant that had the whole package.. delicious food, amazing service... just an all around great atmosphere.

    Since moving to Phx we have been searching for a good BBQ restaurant & finally found one. Bobby Q is rather hidden away on a frontage road, but worth the effort to locate. It's a large, busy place with really good baby back ribs (also have St. Louis style, etc.) & we enjoyed the sides (we chose coleslaw and roasted corn) as well. Portions are generous, there is a full bar and menu includes choices for non carnivores. Service very attentive & pleasant. We read of this restaurant because they won a top slot in 'best bbq in the country.'

    First time here and was craving BBQ, so I looked up what was in the area. This place is no joke. The service was absolutely wonderful and the food was even better. We had a young waitress, which usually means a lot of inexperience, but she was on point; able to answer anything thrown at her as a first-time customer, perfectly attentive, friendly and made us feel very welcomed. Overhearing some of the other tables, they had similar service. My wife who isn't a big BBQ fan loved the food and said she would love to come back again. Win and win. Will definitely be back again.

    Bobby Q's did a great job accommodating our large party size. We were seated immediately upon arrival. The staff was both friendly and helpful. Our party was very happy with the variety of food options that were on the menu. The food seemed to arrive faster than we expected. The corn bread at the table was a hit for all our family members. Our party ordered two appetizers before dinner, and each one was devoured in minutes. The large portions of each menu item allowed many of our family members to take the extra food home. Our lunch time was at 11:30 am. I would recommend having reservations at this quieter time at this restaurant. I will encourage my friends and relatives to visit Bobby Q's for a great dining experience!!

    The staff at this place seam to know how to treat a guest right, my reservation was at, 8:00PM. But I did not get a table until about 5 after, not to bad, but the two people that where in front of us, that di not have a reservation did get a table right away, and should not have, until we were seated first ! We Had the, Whole Hog Dinner for two. Everything was cooked very well, and served quickly, the server was good, but could have paid more attention to refilling our drinks, and table side plate removal. ( Could have been a little more attentive to our table).

    Quite disappointed. The atmosphere is "basic bar". No drink menu was offered so we could only choose beverages from the food menu; however, the sangria was delicious! We were offered only 1 piece of their famous cornbread each - not unlimited like other reviewers had suggested. Had to send my prime rib back as it was too rare. Good service - manager checked with me after to see if the prime rib was better (it was) but the food was nothing terrific - maybe my spouse and I are just spoiled by Alberta beef. It was noisy and we felt rushed by staff throughout our meal. In addition, when I booked the reservation I specifically stated that it was for a birthday - but there was no acknowledgement made. Will not go back - just average.

    The food here is always excellent, especially the meat. The baby back ribs are easily the best in the valley. I recently had the prime rib which was perfectly cooked. The onion brick is really good with a little "kick". The service has always been good. When we have visitors who like BBQ, this is where we take them and they always love the place!

    Eating the food here is truly an experience not to be missed. From reserving on Open Table to finishing the dessert you will love it! Our table for 5 was ready within 5 minutes. The food was great (ribs and onion rings) and the service was top notch. If you're in Phoenix and have a few days to chose multiple restaurants- add this to your list for the whole family.

    We were told this was the best bbq in Phoenix and they were right. While our waitress was clearly young, she was super attentive and accommodating. We went with our two kids and the moment the fantastic cornbread arrived, it was quiet at our table. The portions are typical bbq place huge and you want to eat everything on the plate. I especially loved the "smoasted" chicken.
