I made reservations 2 weeks in advance for my husband 's birthday and boy am I glad I did. Did'nt think the place would be packed at 2:00 on a Saturday afternoon but it was so I was glad I had played it safe. The food is always great tasting, fall off the bone ribs, great homemade donuts at the end of your meal. We live in the west valley so it is a drive but it's worth it! We will keep going back when we have that craving for great BBQ.

Made a reservation so only waited less than 5 min. Our table was a little sticky so asked waitress to clean it. Not only did she clean it but told the manager. He came over to the table, apologized and gave us a free appetizer. That was above our expectations. Service was great as well as the food. They also gave us a free dessert for my husband's birthday. Great experience.

We live in California and my daughter goes to school there and suggested we go there for dinner. I have friends that live in Az and recommended it to us. So every time we bring my daughter back to school we make it a point to eat there.

Really enjoyed Bobby Q's. For some reason my expectations were not that high going in, but was pleasantly surprised. The brisket and St. Louis ribs were very good. Our cocktails were a bit pricey but delish! The atmosphere was more impressive than your typical BBQ joint. We will most definitely return.

The cornbread that comes before the meal is delicious. Three of us had the baby back ribs with sides of cole slaw, shoestring potatoes and beans. I thought the cole slaw was very good and the pecans added a nice touch to them. The server was very good and very friendly. When the check came, we got some wonderful warm donuts that were a thank you from the restaurant. They always do this and it was very much appreciated.

Great service front host/hostess to our server. Their barbecue pork is phenomenal and their side of Mac-n-cheese is an order must! Many good choices on their menu. Honestly you can never go wrong going to this place. At the end of your meal when they give you your bill they also give you a small bag of fresh sugar donuts.

For our 15th Anniversary in Phoenix, our family and some friends went to Bobby Q's to celebrate. There were 7 of us all told, and with dessert (we all nibbled on a "death by chocolate" and the cinnamon donuts were complimentary) and healthy tip (excellent service) - we didn't buy any alcohol - we were out the door for less than $200.00. That's a clear win in our book, considering the awesome food.

Our server was amazing! He was exceptional!! Caleb left quite an expression on us. All of the staff were very accommodating-- we reserved online. When we got there they had us setup inside but we ask to sit outside because it was much quieter. They happily accommodated our request. Food is fabulous. Wish sides on hog heaven were a little bigger.

Amazing food!!!! 5 stars. We ordered the baby back ribs and brisket platter with mac n cheese, corn, and potato salad as our sides. Everything was superb. The meat was tender, seasoned well with just the right amount of smokey flavor. All of the sides were prepared with a home cooked flavor. I was very impressed with our service...very attentive. I asked our waiter to describe the cole slaw. He did and surprisingly, he brought me a sample with my meal. This will definitely become our go to place for great BBQ

We are from Rhode Island and are used to very good food in Providence or the Boston area. I can say unequivocally that this BBQ is the best we have ever had. The sides were excellent also; Mac and cheese, beans, mashed potatoes , and corn bread. The BBQ platter was terrific: beef ribs, pulled pork, and brisket. Beef ribs were the best of all. Disappointed that we have to leave PHX now.

We were immediately seated and our server showed up about a minute later to take our drink and appetizer (onion loaf) order. Our server came back with drinks a few minutes later and the appetizer wasn't far behind. It was delicious. Our entrees came out quite fast, were hot, and everything was awesome tasting.
Baby back ribs were fall-off-the-bone cooked perfectly. Fried catfish was also delicious as were sides of potatoe strings, Mac n cheese, and corn.
As far as we're concerned, Bobby Q's has the best BBQ in the valley and the prices are reasonable.
The service was (and always is) outstanding. The restaurant is always clean and the ambiance is great. This is our "go to" restaurant for out of town visitors.
We have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed!

Although the staff was friendly and the overall ambiance was very nice, I thought the food was a little bland but it was not bad. It was just ok. The value for what I ordered was the biggest killer of my experience. One brisket sandwich which had less then 1/2 pound of meat and mashed potatoes for $14.

I've been to BobbyQ's just 2 other times prior to tonight. The experience has always been excellent! But the most important reason to dine there is the fall off the bone barbecue baby back ribs with the side of mac-n-cheese. The staff is attentive and extremely knowledgeable regarding the menu and the history of the establishment. Tonight, my wife and I went for my birthday dinner and it's the best hands down barbecue this side of the Mississippi. And of course it doesn't hurt to be named, Bob!
