Great ribs and pulled pork. The sides were also very good, esp. the pecan cole slaw.

MY WIFE AND I MAKE COMPETITION BAR-B-QUE. SMOKED PRIME BRISKET, BURNT ENDS, RIBS, CHICKEN, WINGS, TURKEY AND SAUSAGE. I ASKED MY WAITER IF THEY HAD BURNT ENDS AND HE SAID YES OF COURSE. I ORDERED THE BRISKET PLATE WITH RANCH STYLE BEANS AND PECAN COLE SLAW. MY WIFE ORDERED THE BABY BACK RIBS WITH RANCH STYLE BEANS AND PECAN COLE SLAW. CORNBREAD CAME FIRST HOT AND DELICIOUS. GREAT BEERS ON TAP TO GO WITH YOUR BAR-B-QUE MEAL AS WELL. TO MY SURPRISE BEFORE WE COULD FINISH OUR BUTTERED CORNBREAD OUR FOOD WAS DELIVERED. THE WAITER ASKED US IF I WOULD LIKE SOME ADDITIONAL BAR-B-QUE SAUCE AND I SAID SURE WHAT DO YOU HAVE. THEY HAVE REGULAR, SPICY AND CHIPOTLE DIP FOR THE BRISKET. THE CHIPOTLE DIP CAME WARM IN A SERVING DISH AND TO MY SURPRISE THE REGULAR AND SPICY BAR-B-QUE SAUCE CAME IN SMALL METAL CARAFE'S. I POURED A LITTLE OF EACH SAUCE ON THE SIDE. WOW, IT WAS DELICIOUS AND WARM (COMPETITION STYLE). FINALLY, A RESTAURANT THAT GETS IT. OH, AND THE BRISKET AND BABY BACK RIBS, WELL THEY RIVAL MY BEST ATTEMPTS AT COMPETITION BAR-B-QUE. THANK YOU LAURA HOGAN - MANAGER AND VERY KIND HOST WHO HAD US ALSO TRY THEIR ROASTED CORN AND SUGGESTED WE TRY THE FRESHLY MADE COMPLIMENTARY MINI CINNAMON DONUTS IN THE "THANK Q" BROWN BAG WHEN WE LEFT. WHAT A PLEASANT EXPERIENCE. WE WILL BE BACK AGAIN. THANK YOU. DANNY AND MELISSA COX - CAYUCOS, CALIFORNIA

Saved a seat online knowing it's always swamped on a sat. Got there with 2 min to spare only to have to wait 15 min. We were the ONLY party of 2 at that moment. Surprisingly it turned around quick once we got in. We had taylor as our waitress, she asked for our drinks at which time we also placed our order. To her surprise and ours as she came to bring us our drinks our food was being sat in front of us. The food is always fire. Patience is key lol.

It was a last minute decision to eat at Bobby Q’s but they never disappoint. I was able to get a reservation on Open Table for a Friday night at 7:15. Arrived right at 7:15 and was seating almost immediately.

Our waitress was very attentive and lighthearted. She was aware of the fact that it was just my wife and I next to a party of about 40, which made things extremely loud. The food and service definitely made up for the noise.

And the icing is always the hot donuts as the takeaway. We almost didn’t leave room for them.

We’ll definitely be back again.

Our 2nd visit was just as good as the 1st. Four of us ordered the Whole Hog Heaven dinner where you pick 2 ribs and 2 meat choices plus 3 sides. Everything was good. Our waitress helped us to make the decision to try this big entrée and some of it went home. The cornbread that comes to the table with butter is delicious as are the freshly made doughnuts that you leave with in a paper bag. The only negative comment would be that the sides were small for 4 people.

Overall we were happy. Took a group of 5 for a birthday dinner. I thought it was a tad pricey for BBQ....I mean we're not talking haute cuisine but....it was the best tasting BBQ I've had in the valley! Calamari appetizer was awesome...never had it in the manner served. St Louis Ribs were falling off the bones tender and full of flavor... brisket was likewise tender and full of flavor...a tad dry but easily remedied with some more sauce. The only other challenge was the decibel level. It was so loud we could really only converse with whomever sat directly beside you....but that's the trade-off for a busy place that's busy for a reason.

Probably one of the top 3 BBQ joints in Phoenix. Please remember we are in Phoenix not, KC or Memphis or St. Louis. But consistent food and great service. Love the cornbread and the mini donuts they give you as you leave. Great atmosphere. Lots of food.

 (San Diego)·Dined on January 6, 2018

The service was friendly, and helpful with recommendations because this was our first time. Our server even brought a taste of an item I was thinking about ordering, because I was torn between to items. The ambiance was very comfortable. I expected the noise level to be louder than it was - my rating of moderate is accurate. Bottom line here, though, is that the barbeque is legit. Great smoke, two sauces from which to choose, and the sides are seriously "home-style". A can't miss place for true fans of barbeque.

We were visiting Phoenix for a few days and found this gem. My husband got the ribs and I got the brisket sandwich. Both were wonderful. The atmosphere was light hearted, the employees accommodating and friendly, the bill reasonable. Wish we could have fit in another visit.

Pork ribs were cold and dry.. brisket was ok just lots of fat and pulled pork was mushy... spent 240$ on New Year’s Eve and left a 40$ tip because service was good and the girls liked the blended drinks that was about it..

We always enjoy going to Bobby Q's. My family loves ribs and they say they are the best around. I don't care for BBQ so the hamburger is good and we got a salad with grilled chicken that was yummy as well. Everyone comments on the Mac & Cheese and it's good but very rich and creamy. Wasn't my favorite but my daughter likes it. We loved the cornbread and of course, the donuts. Overall, it's a great restaurant for BBQ! We would highly recommend it!

Our waiter Eric was awesome. The manager also came over and talked with us, it was Christmas eve and we were wearing ugly sweater/tshirts for the occasion. The food was good except the Jumbo potato. It was alright but I have had much better at BBQ houses.

I would certainly recommend Bobby Q for a good family evening.

Definitely tops in the Valley for barbecue. The pulled pork platter and the sandwich are scrumptious. Mild or hot homemade sauces are perfect. Plus how can one not love the warm cornbread to munch on while your order is being prepared. To top off, you receive a bag of mini warm sugar donuts when you get your check. Definitely worth the drive. Also four function rooms for private and corp events. Full carry out menu as well.
Enter from southbound I-17 frontage road or 27th Ave.

Hit and miss on the brisket, first visit I got the good part of the brisket, it was great, second time I got the fatty part, lot of fat. I like a little fat but this was definitely the other side of the brisket about 50% fat. Spicy BBQ sauce was good

The food and service are always consistent. It’s a classy restaurant in a hidden soso neighborhood. Sometimes you have to wait a bit, even with a open table reservation, but it’s worth it. It’s a great hidden spot in Phoenix which visitors should try.
