Among the top BBQ places in AZ
The BBQ platters are enormous, and to die for. The steaks and prime rib are top notch. The mac and cheese and the potatoes (mashed and baked) are superb, and the lemonade reminds you of sitting on the porch on a Georgia Sunday. The wait staff is always pleasant, quick, and happy to help, and the managers are always floating around and checking to make sure everything is OK.
This is, without doubt, one of my favorite places to eat in Phoenix, and I've been to a great many restaurants here. Check it out, you won't be disappointed.

This was my first time at
This was my first time at Bobby Q's and it was really a good suggestion from a colleague. The food and service were very good. Lunch menu prices are decent. I really enjoed and appreciated that the meal came with cornbread (or I think it did) for everyone and donuts for dessert.

So we went to bobby q's...first time there. The food was amazing the staff came to the table the proper amount of times and were always willing to help. We had made a reservation and when we walked in the table was ready right away. I'm also a vegetarian and found plenty of options for myself . I will for sure we going back to bobby q's again!

A Great Find
As annual visitors to Arizona from the UK we are always looking for somewhere new to eat. This place is fantastic, great ambience, fantastic food and good service and always busy which is the best advertisement. From the outside it doesn't look much but inside is just amazing. The ribs are just the best and you won't come away feeling you could eat more! Do eat there if you are in Phoenix.

Bar-B-Que you Must Taste
Great variety of good tasting, tender bar-b-que. Prices are reasonable and Bobby Q's has nice southwestern ambiance. It can get a little noisy at times. It is a good place to take the family. I recommend reservations because it can get busy at times.

A treasure in Phoenix
Most people associate BBQ with Texas, KC, and St Louis. Bobby Q's stands up with any of those. Great service, GREAT food, wonderful atmosphere. I drove past this place on the I-17 for the past 13 years I've lived here, yet I've always heard great recommendations. This Memorial Day we decided we did't really want to do anything cooking-wise. So, we decided it was time to try this. I will be back. One visit, and I'm hooked. This place is fabulous.

Great for girls lunch
Food was good service good it was very noisy but most restaurants are noisy especially for lunch would definitely return
5/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
I've eaten ribs all over the Country, these are the best. Equally amazing are the mashed potatoes and steak.
Service during both of my visits was excellent.

Best Barbecue in Arizona
I recently moved here from another state and had not located any great barbecue places near where I live. My uncle and his co-worker were sent to Phoenix for training and one of their colleagues recommended Bobby Q for dinner. My uncle gave me a call and the three of us went and... Wow the food was delicious. We each had a different meal from the menu, but we all cleaned-up our plates. I had the beef brisket which had just enough sauce, although we were offered more for those who, like my uncle, enjoy a little extra sauce on their food. I would recommend the shoestring potatoes and grilled vegetables, too.
The restaurant is more than twenty miles from where I live, but I will travel that far to get delicious barbecue in the future.

BBQ at its best
Bobby Qs...wonderful BBQ Do recommend a reservation. Very busy, but quick with the food, drinks etc. All the waiters and waitresses were hopping. We were there for Fathers Day, it was pretty loud. Ben there at lunch time before when it was much quieter. Nice time............
6/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Checked out this restaurant on a referral. The food was awesome. I have never had better ribs. Everyone in our party was extremely pleased with our meals. No complaints whatsoever.
6/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Confusion worth overcoming! :)
Finding the front door from the parking lot is not as easy as most places, however once you are inside, everything becomes outstanding!
Very friendly, helpful staff. Some of the best food I have found in years! Wonderful experience for all of us! :)
6/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
My father just turned 92 and chose Bobby Q's for his special day. There were 4 other birthdays within our family as well and we all concur that it was a perfect place for our party. The food did not disappoint. I love, love, love the grilled veg's. as well as my salmon that was cooked just the way I like it. Everyone else raved about their dinners as well. Our server was fantastic...she spoiled us! We will keep coming back again and again!!
6/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
We have been to Bobby Q's many times and have always had great service and amazing food! The corn bread alone is worth it!
6/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great for barbecue ribs
It's worth the half hour ride to enjoy some delicious barbecue ribs. The sides were terrific, too. Add in great service and this makes Bobby Qs one of the best, if not the best, in the valley
7/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
I've gone to Bobby Q's several times and not only have I always loved my meal but everyone else in my party has raved about theirs also. The steaks were cooked exactly as ordered. I especially love the fork tender and very taste beef brisket.
7/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food was good
But wow portions of meat were small. At least the saugage. I got 4 slices- NOT even a link!!! cheap
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best ribs in Phoenix!
Our fourth visit. Service is consistently excellent as is the food. Ribs are outstanding. This time I had the grilled
shrimp. Portion was generous and delicious. The roasted corn is a favorite as is the pecan slaw. You can't beat
the individual size cornbreads served with ample butter. Yum! Guests have had chicken/rib combo, steak, pulled
pork, all way above average. Only very slight criticism is the noise level but you can't control people having a
great time and who would want to?
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
. I ordered the baby back
. I ordered the baby back ribs and as other reviewers said they were awesome! I learned from Phillip (the waiter) that they cut, age and smoke all of their meats. The flavor of the ribs was tangy-sweet. Not to sweet and not to tangy with just the right amount of char. The sides were moderate and typical of a bbq place with the exception that there is an upcharge if you want a salad instead of one of the sides. The food came EXTRA fast and was served piping hot and had plate appeal. Their signature cornbread was baked to perfection with a slight crust to the outside and moist on the inside. The staff was knowledgeable and courteous. I thought the food was priced well. For 2, we spent 40.00 including the 20% tip.

Don't miss Bobby Q's
We had a great experience at this restaurant. The food was fanatic and the service was just as good. Our waiter acted as if we were in his kitchen for the first time and he couldn't wait to impress us with the cuisine! Amazing Mac and cheese, excellent pulled chicken and the ribs are terrific!
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great service and unique decor
Bobby Q serves barbeque that is very tasty, and so tender, it falls off the bone. There is no need
for messy fingers here!
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
great food. hard to visit due to noise level. Reservations were great walked right in and were seated.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dinner for three
My wife and I met a friend for dinner. The food was great, service was excellent and we totally enjoyed ourselves.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best in Phoenix!
Enjoy the food so much, we have you cater our business events as well! You have done multiple picnics, birthday lunches, and family events. The food in unsurpassed. Thanks so much, Katharine Blakley, Mytek Network Solutions
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for any special occasion. The BBQ food was great and good portions. Service was great as well. I can't wait to go back!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this place!
This is a casual, fun, bbq joint with a real friendly and fun atmosphere. The food is killer bbq! Pretty amazing stuff. Service was very friendly and quick, yet not rushed. Definitely a do again and again! If I were a local, I'd be a regular.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding Customer Service
Our event was a "farewell" to a departing co-worker and a "welcome" to a new co-worker. We had several last minute changes that bounced our "reserved" time from 6pm to 5pm and back to 6pm and our party size changed a bit as well. The folks at the restaurant handled this all seamlessly and without complaint - as if no changes had occurred at all. The drinks were kept appropriately filled and the food delivered swiftly and yet we never felt smothered by the service :-). The food was awesome - especially the grilled veggies.
The "ambiance" did not get an "outstanding" rating simply because we were a little "smooshed" at our table. There was a shortage of elbow room.

Since I won't be getting invited to a Sedar this year, I opted for the Brisket sandwich. It very possibly was the best Brisket I've ever had. I will definitely order it again. Also had an excellent server!! Most people don't even realize what an important part the server plays in the whole dining experience.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love their food!
Portions are very generous and can be shared. The complimentary cornbread and donuts after the meal are a real treat!
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
The best BBQ
I have been in Phoenix for 3 years now, and have yet to find a place with a better atmosphere or better tasing barbecue!
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
I came in from Orange County, Ca for a couple days and looked up BBQ places in the Phoenix area and decided on Bobby Q's because they had a high Yelp rating. It's in kind of a strange location, but my GPS lead me right there. They have a nice outdoor seating area and a decent selection of beer. I love BBQ and have eaten a lot of it. I had the baby back ribs with shoestring fries and the Mudpie for dessert. The ribs were fairly typical BBQ, but were still pretty good. I don't really care for shoestring fries, but they were as advertised and tasted good. The Mudpie was pretty awesome, and I haven't ever had anything like it before, it's a must try. I would definitely come back again.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
I love this restaurant so much. I believe it is the best BBQ restaurant that I have ever been to. I can't recall our servers name but she was sweet and had great recommendations. Every guest in our party raved about their meal selections as well. My girlfriend and I cannot wait to return, thanks for an exceptional night out!
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Happy birthday to him

Cole slaw and beans were very good. Jacob,our server,was attentive ,efficient and had a great sense of humor. A delightful experience. Can`t wait to go back !
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food, Great Service, Great...
My wife and I had eaten here once before and loved it. This time we brought the whole family, kids included. Food was fantastic, perfect actually, and the drinks were great. Kids meals were awesome as were the steaks and catfish for the adults. Everything was A+++. We will be back!
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Place To Eat
Decided to try a restaurant not found anywhere else I have traveled to in the U.S.A. Bobby Q was close to where I was staying while in Phoenix. It was easy to to find, since you pass while going north & south on I-17. I started with the Crispy Sweet Onion Block which was delicious. It brought back memories of something I had as a teenager in New Orleans, from a place called Luther's BBQ, called an Onion Loaf. For the main course I had the 14oz Smoked Prime Rib (medium well) with Potato Salad and Roasted Corn as my 2 sides. The Smoked Prime Rib was cooked the way I ordered and it was easy to cut and chew. Very good job. The sides were delicious. If I am ever back in Phoenix, I will return.
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Once again, another delicious experience. My girlfriend and I came here on our anniversary for lunch and we loved it. Our server, Sawyer, successfully upsold us on the "family platter" and it was incredible. There were only the two of us so it was obviously an overwhelming amount of food but I am anxious to eat the left overs for lunch today! The platter came with two sides, brisket, chicken, pulled pork, and ribs. Every item was exceptional along with the complimentary dessert. Thank you again for a great meal and we'll see you again very soon!
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Local Place!
We love this place! Great food, great service, and great ambiance! They offer delicious smoked BBQ meats and amazing and unique drinks!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best BBQ ever!!
I have been trying out the local BBQs ever since I moved to Arizona last year. Although Glendale has some great barbecue places to offer, I must say that Bobby-Q takes the cake! Even though the drive is a little further than central Glendale, it is well worth the trip and I must say that I am thoroughly impressed with everything from presentation to flavor/portion to service to ambience! Will be back soon :) ps- try the pineapple drink if you go- It's served in a carved pineapple and it is delicious!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun delicious barbecue. Great
Fun delicious barbecue. Great cornbread and hot homemade doughnuts at the end of the meal. Love it.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Spare Ribs and mac n cheese were terrific! Best I can recall in a long time, and perhaps, ever! Tasty! Thank you!
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Found a review on the internet while in the area for the winter. Great experience. It was a Friday and a good thing we had a reservation as it was a busy but the food was still excellent and service was great. Highly recommend.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Heard good things about this place in regards to the food, service and dance club aspects. I can tell you that it definitely is a place to go.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
The BEST BBQ in Phoenix!
We've been going to Bobbi Q's for years, the food is always delicious, service is fantastic and manage is the best! I've also used them for catering as well, food was equally delicious and professionally set up. I would highly recommend to all. Wish there were more Bobbi Q's in the valley, definitely a great find.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Will go back for sure
From Boston coming out to see family, this is one of the greatest experiences I had for my vacation dining. The food was incredible the service was incredible and the ambience was incredible. I know barbecue, and this place did it right. Portions were very generous, and the price is very reasonable. Here is a restaurant that knows what they're doing.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
LOVE THIS PLACE
I love this place! We went on a Friday night and the mood was the best! The sweet tea is to die for and the food is great! I was able to split a 2 rib meal for only 24 dollars and had plenty of food that was DELICIOUS. Our waitress was so sweet and the food came out fast. Our waitress was the sweetest thing! Would definitely come back just make sure you make a reservation.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great BBQ in the desert
Having lived into the South and experiencing
BBQ from Kansas City to Charleston, Bobbie Qs
is some of the best I've tasted. And that's saying
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Outing with Friends
We were out with several friends and their children and were accommodated very well. The speed of service was great and the restaurant servers did not mind a few friends coming late and slowing down the meal a bit. All the servers tolerated my 2 year old better than I did and food came out quickly after being ordered. We ordered the 3 meat platter and shared it. It was split into 2 plates by the kitchen for us which was very nice. The food tasted very good. The only complaint I had was that they had not stated the mandatory gratuity in their menu or somewhere prior to getting the check. The service was worth 20% and it is pretty commonplace for parties of 8 or more so I wasn't totally surprised but it would have been nice to know.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
BBQ this good can't be in AZ
Awesome BBQ, fun place and hopping bar...in a somewhat random neighborhood in western Phoenix. Well worth it...especially if you love BBQ. This is as good as we have had anwhere (yes, including Texas, all throughout the south, etc)
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great BBQ, great service
If you're looking for some great tasting barbecued and smoked meats, this is the place. A varied menu, lots of choices, reasonably priced and great service will have us coming back to bobby Q'S on our next visit to Phoenix.
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
We all had a wonderful experience.
We all had a wonderful experience. That food and patio were awesome. The bar in the dining area was fun and the staff were excellent. I love the happy hour too. We will be back real soon. :)
