Love BobbyQ’s! I ordered the rotisserie chicken and it was a little on the dry side. Mashed potatoes were awesome. I highly recommend! As a matter of fact we brought another couple who have never been there. They both love it, and said “we’ll be back”
Manager is great! Love his shirts!

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.

After many visits, the food remains the same. It is always consistent and VERY GOOD. The service matches the food. For BBQ, it remains a restaurant you can count on.

Went to celebrate birthday. When the prime rib did not come out as ordered, the manager instantly made it right. My steak was perfectly cooked. Overall a good dining experience. Our Open Table reservations worked exactly as expected. We will definitely dine there again.

This was our second dinner at Bobbie Q’s and were wern’t disappointed. The barbecue ribs were outstanding. We had two full racks giving us some wonderful take home for later. We love the roasted corn and Mac and cheese sides. The Suzy q roll appetizer was delicious. The next time we’re in Phoenix, we’ll be sure to include Bobbie Q’s for dinner!

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.
