Met some friends with my husband. - Food was excellent for everyone. My order did not come out as ordered - I brought it to our waitresses attention and I don't think I have seen customer service like that in a long time! She obviously looked at my plate and realized that it was not how I had ordered my meal. A manager came out and said it was being remade and would be out in 4 minutes! Was one of the best "make a wrong a right"!
Kudos to Linzy our waitress and the manager who I regret I did not get her name!

My son took me to Bobby Q's for a birthday celebration. We both had such a good time. The food was great and the atmosphere was festive. Our waitess was attentive without being obtrusive and the manager came by several times to see how we were enjoying ourselves. Good food, Good service, Good company. Couldn't ask for more.

The food was excellent, as always. The ambience was great, a "tad" on the noisy side (due to the time of day, i.e. 5:00pm), the service was outstanding. It was our 25th wedding anniversary and we had a lovely evening. Thank you! We've enjoyed BobbyQ's for years, and in the past when it was Bobby McGee's, too!

We requested a high chair for my toddler. When they didn't have the one we needed for our table size, they provided a complimentary appetizer and constantly came by to check on our party with their apologies. I truly appreciate the extra effort they showed. It makes me want to return knowing we will be taken care of, regardless of what they have available.

Unbelievable. Our 1st time at Bobby Q's, the last night of vacation and we couldn't have been more impressed.
Our waitress (Christen?) started things off right with her friendly and warm style. When my date wanted to know which sides were best, Christen brought out huge samples of the sides we were interested in. Our glasses were never empty and our table was consistently bussed. We chose the smoked wings for an appetizer and since we come from the "wingland" (near Buffalo, NY) we were not disappointed. Big, meaty wings that were slathered in sauce and cooked perfectly. We opted for small Caesar salads and were surprised. The romaine was cold and crisp and the dressing was as good as any at many a high-end restaurant we've been to. Cornbread. Damn, that cornbread was GREAT. Then entrees: I had the 3 meats: sausage, brisket and chicken. Each was perfect. Smoky, tangy and tender. The brisket may just be the best I've had. My date had the prime brisket and raved about it. I was only offered the tiniest of samples from her but was amazed - that WAS the best brisket... ever. At the end of the meal we remarked how terrific everything was (especially the cornbread) and asked for a box to take our remaining pieces to-go. We were surprised when Christen brought out a box with an additional 6 pieces. I had ordered the Sub Zero banana cream square to-go. I was asked if it was ok for it to come out a little later, as the manager invited us back to the kitchen to look around and specifically to see the industrial-sized smokers. That was an incredibly gracious gesture. I even got some meat smokin' secrets out of him! Again - a warm, friendly, gracious guy with a genuine smile and offered a feeling of being "family". By the time we got back to the table my huge desert to-go was ready and we were fat and happy. Christen ended our night with a warm (and strong) handshake and best wishes for safe travels, home.

Amazing service, delicious food! We had the most wonderful server (Kristin) who took care of everything we could have asked for, plus more. We were celebrating two master's graduates from GCU and are from out of town. Not only did Bobby Q's allow us to move our reservation up an hour (graduation ended early), but they made sure to help us with the celebration by throwing in some additional surprises with our meal. We had a large group (10) and not once did we feel like we had to wait or were unimportant. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for great BBQ, good service and a fun time!

I'm always pleased when I go to Bobby Q's. They offer a military discount for those of us who serve or have served. Kristen, my waitress, was very friendly and had a great handshake. If you're a non-drinker like me, I'd recommend the frozen lemonade. I go for the ribs and order a whole rack, so I can take half of them home with me. There is more meat on their ribs than any other restaurant I've been to. The fresh baked cornbread was good with butter and honey on it.
