REVIEWS OF Bobby-Q BBQ Restaurant and Steakhouse IN Arizona

Caitlin Zeigler

Great customer service! Great food! The brisket sandwich and ribs are flavorful and tender. The sides are good and filling. The desserts and lemonade are sweet. The cornbread is soft and kind of sweet, too. The wait wasn't too bad and the price is what you would expect for real slow-cooked meat. I can't wait to go back. I received a discount in exchange for my review. All opinions are my own.


BBQ was tender and flavorful. Mac and cheese was plenty cheesy and very good. Nothing super bold or standout about this place but very good BBQ. Our server was friendly and quick. Will eat here again.


Good environment. Needs more veggie options for my wife.

Cat Polston

Really damn good BBQ. Lots of different meat options that are all tender and well seasoned. Best cornbread around and loaded mashed potatoes. The mini donuts are the perfect end to your meal.

Renee Newman-Minor

What a wonderful establishment! We popped into Bobby-Q BBQ right after reaching AZ on our visit from Northern Idaho. Our party of 5 including 4 adults and a toddler were greated warmly and promptly by the hostess. Our server was attentive and had great suggestions. We will definitely be recommending this restaurant to our friends and family in the area!

Lynette Smith

Great ribs of all varieties-beef ribs are the best I every tasted. Very good selection of sides including mac & cheese, good veg. mix and excellent fries. They also serve very good corn bread and mini donuts for desert at no extra charge. Be sure to make reservations as this is a very popular and busy restaurant. Also excellent table service. Went with a business associate to talk shop. The happy hour was fair, the food was good, and the server left us alone enough so we could chat. The bbq was fair to good and the prices weren't bad.

Jeremy Peraza

Amazing sauces and tender, smoky meats. Ribs fall off the bone and brisket comes apart on the fork. I loved their spicy BBQ sauce the most. The cornbread is sweet, fluffy, and crumbly.

Sam Gibson

Totally packed with customers. Good sign! Someone is making customers happy! We got there at 6pm and were seated immediately for a 6:15 reservation. Drinks were ordered and served immediately. We ordered all types of meats. All the dishes were very well accepted. We are moving out of state but when we come back this will be one of the first places we visit.

Adam Evans

Great food! Excellent cornbread. Atmosphere and staff are great.

Chris Steigerwalt

Service was good. Portions were good. Food was just okay. The ribs weren't great. They weren't bad, but they were just blah. In fact, I left feeling inspired to go cook some myself. I had them this weekend and affirmed that mine are far and away better. Which, at the price they charge, is just sad. I was seriously hopeful it would be better. Maybe it was just an off night, buti didn't get that impression. Great, great atmosphere though.

Marcel Gheorghe

Amazing food, very nice atmosphere and great staff. We decided on short notice to try and find a place to eat for a group of 13, the manager accommodated us to despite the restaurant being vey busy. Highly recommended!

Steve DiCristina

Very crowded at my time of arrival. Waited about 20 minutes or so. Once seated, was waited on promptly. Food came quickly. Wait staff was quick to refill drinks and ask if I needed anything further. Two rib combo was served hot and it was fall-off-the-bone delicious. BBQ sauce made a very nice compliment. Sides were plentiful (baked potato and veggies). Couldn't fit desert but left with some tasty mini donuts. Some entrees on the pricy side. Definitely will go back when in the area.

In A Minute

The BBQ in AZ! Great food and great customer service. I would highly recommend a visit to Bobby Q's.

Greg Miller

Great place! Chicken fell off the bone and brisket was very nice and tender. Great atmosphere as well. Definetely will return! : )

Lisa K

Excellent service, excellent food. We tried this location as it was close to our daughters school and our hotel....And we had already been to the Mesa location and loved it. Did not disappoint!! Highly recommended

Ann Nickola

Great steaks and sides. Brisket very moist and tender. BBQ reasonably priced. Steaks a little high, but aged.

Laura B

The cornbread at the start was yummy, we were visiting the area and this looked good. The restaurant has lots of character, it was a welcoming experience, the food and sides were great :) Overall would recommend

Dana Pagliarulo, PMP, PMI-ACP

Recently made it to Bobby-Q and was truly impressed. Family splits the whole hog platter with plenty of food for 3 men and a lady. Plenty of Woodford Reserve Whiskey on hand for a pleasant dining experience. Love the complimentary corn bread and mini donuts for a great finish

Jeffrey El Jefe

It's all about the smoke! I keep going back for the ribs. Service is great.

james wilcox

Great service, great food, and great atmosphere.

Melanie Pandel

I got the wings and mac and cheese. Very fresh and tasty. Server could have been better, would have given a 5 star.

Anthony C

This is definitely a hole in the wall considering it's location, but wow is their food just absolutely amazing. On top of that the staff are friendly and inviting and it feels as if you're going to a backyard bbq at your friends. I highly recommend and I don't think you will be disappointed.

Marion Bennett

Good but pales in comparison to Southern BBQ. Way overpriced but not a bad experience

Chris Holyoake

Honestly the best BBQ I've had in my life! Definitely get the baby back ribs. All the sides are solid - we had the beans, potato salad, and mac & cheese. ASK FOR TRAVIS! Such a genuinely nice guy.

Herb Cordley

This place is great. I love the atmosphere and the food. I got a very positive vibe from the hostess and servers. I ordered the beef and pork ribs with corn and Mac n cheese. All were great. Meat did fall off the bones. The Mac and cheese was awesome. The corn was tasty but oily. The corn bread is good too. As good as it was I can't come often to drop $30 for a combo rib plate all the time. It was a nice treat for me that night though.

Chuck schwartz

Great restaurant in not the best neighborhood. The service was excellent from the time we walked in the door. We had a large group of 11, and we were seated within 5 minutes despite the fact they were moderately busy on a Saturday afternoon. Everyone enjoyed thier food and there was quite an offering on the menu. I personally had the pulled pork sandwich which is my favorite menu item here.

Tanya Simons

I can not really rate this. We tried coming here when we first arrived in Phoenix. We waited over 40 minutes and I just couldn't wait anymore I was extremely hungry so we ended up leaving. :-(

Nikolay Kolev

Can't say anything bad about this place. Huge parking lot, they have a lot of tables both inside and outside. Their service was fantastic, we were immediately greeted and our server was very very polite, taking her time to explain the menu and the drinks. They gave us corn bread for a starter and that was yummy. Then we ordered burgers and those were very very delicious! When we were done they provided us with complimentary donuts

Patrick McDonald Jr

The best bbq. Q-rolls are my favorite. Brisket is delish.

Diane Stinson

The staff was wonderful but the food is nothing to brag about. My St Louis ribs were overpriced and overcooked. The ribs were dry.

Jesse Barreras

We had such a great experience dining at this restaurant. The food was so delicious! Had baby back ribs, pulled brisket. They serve corn bread that is to die for! At the end of your meal they give you freshly made donut bites. OMG, everything was sup good!!!!

Michael Mohler

My wife and I visited this restaurant a few months back and just loved the food and the service was excellent. The amount of attention from the servers and managers is phenomenal and we will be back. Loved every moment and thank you all.

Glenn Lawrence

Mother's Day. The wait wasn't bad. They were very busy but had us seated within 20 mins. Mother had the half order St. Louis style ribs, baked potato and roasted veggies. The ribs were ordinary, the roasted veggies we're way over sized. The loaded baked potato was perfect. I had the brisket, Mac and cheese with shoestring potatoes. Good flavor, perfect burnt ends. Still the Mac and cheese was the best thing on the plate. Hubby had the 12oz top sirloin, Mac and cheese with shoestring potatoes. Not much flavor on the steak, stringy and only fixed by steak sauce, not worth the price, and the shoestring potatoes were over cooked. Our server was awesome, I'm sorry I didn't get him name but it was so loud, very loud I could barely hear him. Overall, ordinary BBQ at extraordinary high prices. Not worth a second trip.

Chris Kallmes

Delicious, as usual. I've never had a bad dish here. The mac & cheese and the corn bread are to die for (not to mention all of the meats!) Reservations are a smart idea, especially on weekends. It can be a long wait if you don't, but still worth it!

Juan Hickman

We found this place on our last night in town. Wish we would have found it the first night. BBQ is awesome, great side dishes like Mac & cheese and Grilled Corn. Cornbread muffins were fantastic. The house made lemonade and fresh donuts are a must. Our server Alyssa was fantastic and very carry about our experience. You must visit this place. They also have outside dining.

Kiana McCrea

Went to Bobby-Q's for my birthday and had such a great time! We got the Q rolls which were amazing and the baby back ribs with a side of mac n cheese and fries. The meat was just perfect! I have never had such good ribs at a restaurant before and I am really picky about my ribs. Our server, Kyle was also great which made the experience even better! Highly recommend this place!!

Mary Mwangi

Absolutely amazing. Haven't been to a BBQ joint since moving from Texas 4 months ago, so I was craving some,this place did not disappoint. First off,expect a wait if you come during a busy period. It's Sunday night we waited 30 minutes for a table. The food is amazing and the portions are ginormous!!! I ended up splitting my two rib combo plate in two,and I only ate one huge beef rib and was full. The kids meal portions are great too. My 2 kids split one ribs plate. They don't eat much so i knew neither of them would finish 4 ribs. I didn't try the cocktails but they look amazing. The ambience is good reminded me of salt grass. Our server was fantastic.Overall great place for a family dinner. We'll def be back.

Nancy Champagne

Always love it here, whether having the pulled pork, brisket, ribs, or even just a huge salad. This is the best barbequed meat I have had anywhere...and always consistent. They have a nice selection of craft beers, wine and a full bar. Great services, sometimes noisy, but it is way nicer than most BBQ places you visit. The smoked whole turkeys are fantastic at the holidays too!

eve shimp

Unbelievably the best bbq that I have ever eaten in my life. There's not a question, but bobby is the best ever. Ribs, Ribs Ribs Ribs! Slowly cooked with so much flavor, and I would eat this everyday if It wasn't 15 minutes away. Highly recommend this place if you're looking for some homemade wonderful BBQ.

Charlene Pestotnik

Absolutely the best BBQ ever. We went there two nights on our trip to Phoenix. Both our waitresses, Charlin and Ashley Way was fantastic!!! Thank you for the great service.

Riley S

Best beef brisket sandwich I've had in a long time, They give large portions of food.

AZ Irish

The food, service and atmosphere are awesome! This place is a gem in the heart of the city. The only knock is it's pretty expensive. The least expensive dinner plate (non sandwich) on the menu is $20. That seems a little much for a BBQ joint, no matter how nice it is. If price were not an issue, I'd be there several times a month.

Taylor Ferguson

Amazing! Definitely a 5 star establishment. Friday night and feeling good, the atmosphere was lively and we were seated within a few minutes of arriving. Bryce was our server and really took the time to explain the food/process. The bbq is legit, coming from California we do not have many good bbq spots. Thank you for making this a memorable bday dinner with my wife. Taylor


This is more than just a bar at night. This restaurant serves some great BBQ but also has excellent steaks. The sirloin was great and the mac and cheese is also addicting. Cornbread is served to the table and is also great. The atmosphere is lively and casual and the outside area is like an oasis in the desert.

Daniel mack

Good food. Very busy, food took a long time. Waiter was really nice.


I am a Retired USAF Veteran and I know the meaning of “Great” customer service. Mr. Jack Lineberger the General Manager and our server Dylan gave my wife and I just that; “Exceptional” and “Outstanding” customer service. They were “Top notch” and made my wife and I wedding anniversary celebration exciting and fun. From step 1 to step 10 they took their time going over all the menu items, answered all of our questions, and gave us an impeccable dining experience; the service we received was “Exemplary”. Thank you Jack and your staff for the "Exceptional" and "Outstanding" Customer Service. Bobby Q’s food is very good and very tasty. The quality of the food is fantastic. "Everything" we ate was "amazing". The restaurant is very clean and welcoming. My wife and I are 100% satisfied with the quality of service we received while at your restaurant. We made the best choice by choosing Bobby Q’s to celebrate our wedding anniversary celebration. Thanks again Jack for the "Great" food. I will definitely recommend to my fellow Veterans the service we received from Jack and Dylan at Bobby Q’s BBQ Restaurant and Steakhouse located at 8501 N. 27th Ave. Phoenix, AZ 85051. Sincerely, James Holland, Retired USAF

Chet Jenkins

The best location of this chain. The beef tacquitos are great and its such a cool restaurant. Feels like a Disneyland vibe in some strange way with the decorations

Rob Cullen

Delicious and well worth Every penny and some very Beautiful waitresses no Doubt.... Will Definitely return many times to come..

Zia L

I’m giving it 4 stars because the first time we went here it was AMAZING. Food was hot and fresh and everything was fast. The second time, it was not so awesome and I don’t think we’ll be returning.

Andy Fezza

This place was great. Very cool, rustic patio, with cool water features. The food was great. I had the brisket and pulled pork with mac n cheese, and beans. Service was awesome too.

Victoria Arroyave

So dang good. Drinks, appetizers, bbq. It's alllllll good. My belly is so full. The people here are great. Dylan was awesome.

Cat Sundheim

The food is always delicious and the service is friendly. I love this place!

T Man

Went for an anniversary lunch. Food was amazing, service impeccable. Can't wait to go back!

Janessa Downey

Great food and service! It is a bit pricey but it is worth it.

Sabrina Anderson

Our initial experience was a little rough in the beginning, but by the time we left there we were very impressed with the food, which by the way is absolutely amazingly delicious, and management did a good job at taking care of the situation. I was very impressed with how they handled it, and it was completely unexpected. I will definitely be going back to enjoy the barbecue that is unbelievably delicious!

Nicholas Zehrbach

Joel was a great server. Food was delicious. Good atmosphere.

Ashley Catherine

First time and won't be the last! Soso good and LOVED the donuts at the end. Reminds me of the cider mills haha. #lfthx #phxfoodie

keith wiese

Food was great and eye catching, the service was attentive, a calming atmosphere and you won't feel crowded.

Renae Begay

The service was great. The meats were delicious; we get the hog platter... The sides were not the best; we had the mac & cheese (runny), beans (meh) and French fries (hard).

Derick Williamson

I live in Baltimore if I was rich I would fly there every weekend , I was bless to stumble up on this place. Everything I eat was prepared to perfection. We went back the next night. Can't wait for the Ravens to play them down there again, because I know the best place to eat at.

Carla Bauer

We are completely hooked! Q rolls are a must and these are simply the best ribs we have ever had!!! Looks run down from the highway, but be assured it's a neat place inside, if you can get a table. Love this place and always wonderful service!

Jane Hull

Great BBQ meats. I had brisket and pulled pork both excellent. Both mashed potatoes and grilled vegetables were good too. Also loved the freebie fresh mini doughnuts to go. Our waiter was very good too.

Kenny Landers

Live on the other side of town, was in the neighborhood and decided to stop in for take-out for Football Sunday. What a great decision. Was Greeted by Ashley, who could not have been more friendly. Wings, 3 meat combo, even a few buns.. Got me all setup, start to finish took less than 25 min!!. Wish you were closer, buy I guarantee I will be back soon. I am from the South and this is the ONLY BBQ I will eat in Phx. Thanks again Ashley for your help!

john konski

Great food. Happy hour is awesome. Staff if beyond friendly and helpful.


Delicious BBQ food and cocktails with pretty good service. Also FREE DONUTS with your meal! Highly recommended!

Clarissa Alvarez

Omg first time eating there and it was freaking amazing. The ribs were extremely delicious and their cornbread was on point. And them rolled taco things with that meat was amazing. I was so full I fell asleep on the car ride home.. that's when you know you are good, well great.

Walter Wilson

Prime rib was great! Q rolls are a must try. Service and speed of food coming out was good. No real reason to complain here.

Rich Hitchens

Amazing service and very good food and large portions. Service is great. Julie is exceptional! The best of the best!

Kris Cummings

I am a Texan. I know my BBQ. I travel all over for work and this place ranks in my top 5 bbq spots. The flavor is all the way through the meat. The selection of sauces is great. I got one that I wanted to freeze it in the winter so I could ice skate on it then in the spring I would drink it as it thaws. At the end of the meal we got free mini donuts. I just thought I was stuffed but suddenly found room for those little pieces of Heaven. The waiter was great and laughed at our Fried Green Tomatoes joke about why the sauce was so good. Every time I go to Phoenix now this place will be on my list of places to eat.

Jordon Stackhouse

Great ribs of all varieties-beef ribs are the best I every tasted. Very good selection of sides including mac & cheese, good veg. mix and excellent fries. They also serve very good corn bread and mini donuts for desert at no extra charge. Be sure to make reservations as this is a very popular and busy restaurant. Also excellent table service. Went with a business associate to talk shop. The happy hour was fair, the food was good, and the server left us alone enough so we could chat. The bbq was fair to good and the prices weren't bad.


You can see it from the I-17 But it's a little tricky to get to because you actually have to maneuver some side streets to get there. Trust me it is well worth the effort! The staff is friendly and efficient and the food is beyond wonderful! There is something for EVERYONE! MAKE SURE TO TAKE HOME SOME OF THEIR SIGNATURE SAUCE! Yummy!!!!

Scott Seeley

Wonderful! Everything from the service to the food was top notch. Honestly, one of the best experiences I have had at a restaurant in years. Definitely will go back when in town again.

Cathy Barnes

Celebrated my 60th birthday dinner here and it was awesome. Our server Brice Evans went above and beyond to to make the evening wonderful. Food was fantastic and the service was exceptional.

Tiffany Routon

Loved the rotisserie chicken and the grilled veggies, oh my!! They also have my mom a free ice cream cake for her birthday! My mom didn’t like brown meat so after she got her chicken she mentioned this and the server went and brought our more white meat and didn’t charge! Exceptional service and delicious food!!

Ronda Holliman

First time having dinner here. Food was good. The corn bread was very good we were pleasantly surprised.

Krissy Meyer

Amazing food and service :) their cornbread is bomb! Appetizers are really good (we got the shrimp the rolled brisket). All their mains are so hearty!! Southern fried chicken are amazing. Their BBQs are definitely must try. Consistent friendly and fast customer service. Will definitely come back when we're back in town :)

Jihad Sakr

Food and service were amazing. I definitely recommend this place. It's a bit pricey but worth every penny in my opinion. Best corn bread I've had in Phoenix and their donuts are awesome too!

KS Weachter

Great, fresh food with the option to eat on the patio during happy hour. We enjoyed the $5 pitcher of beer and $6 sangria with complimentary cornbread. I had the 2 meat combo with pulled pork and sausage while he ate the brisket and pulled pork. The meats were tender and moist. The beans, mashed potatoes and potato salad were delicious. Definitely worth a try. The combos were 26 and change a piece but well worth it.

Jonathan Winnie

Fast service! Delicious food! Comfortable environment. The brisket rolls are incredible! Those could be a meal all by themselves. Rib meat was so tender and flavorful. Only reason why I don't give 5 stars is because I thought the prices were a little on the high side. The food and service were great. If the prices were about 10-15% lower, this would be a more frequent stop for me. Where they are, it's a special occasion destination.

Vlad Shimansky

Delicious as always. Beautiful atmosphere and a perfect place to come with a group.

Brett Bernath

My mom makes the best brisket so I usually don't even bother.... Well, different style than mom's, but delicious! The ribs were fall off the bone and perfectly smoked. All the sides were great too. Free cornbread when we sat done and free donuts to go! The waiter was super friendly. Great time and great food! Highly recommended!

Ray Ray

Barbecue is good gets a little ratchet on the club night but it's great entertainment no complaints from me

Elle W

The best place to get BBQ. The meat is fall off the bone perfect

Alyssa Figueroa

Hands down the best BBQ in town, the brisket just melted in my mouth! And the service was great, it was our first time there, we will definitely be back!

Esther Sanchez

Had their beef brisket bar b que sandwich. Very tasty.

Kasey Johnson

This place is amazing our server was amazing and the food was beyond amazing plus the environment was perfect with country music playing

Shawn Lauretic

Love this place! Not in the best area of town but totally worth the trip!

William Barron

Pricey but great food & service

Stefanos Glinos

Amazing food, fast as hell service litterly FAST...., the prices are reasonable, and you cant beat the vibe the atmosphere brings at this location.

JC Mohave

I LOVE the food!! My husband not so much. But he's not a fan of ribs or BBQ. But the food is delicious & the service is great & staff are friendly. Highly recommend!

Elise Anne

Barbeque restaurants aren't really my jam, but this place was awesome. I got rotisserie chicken, mashed potatoes, and mac & cheese. Corn bread is served as a side. Our waiter was tremendous and did a great job throughout the dining experience.

Paul Bzzz

First time back in a couple of years. No issues, just so many options. It's still great. The BBQ pork was seasoned properly, but we do have different definitions of NC style BBQ. Not better, not worse, just different. Stole a bite of a friends brisket ... that is certainly worth getting killed on the I-17.

Nope Nah

Good BBQ is never cheap, but Bobby-Q has incredibly reasonable prices for fantastic food. The low lit, smokehouse styled decor is a delight and the early evening crowd was minimal - we expected noisy, but got a comfortable, quiet atmosphere. The Q-Rolls, brisket in deep fried tortilla wraps, were a fantastic appetizer and were even better dipped in the BBQ sauce. The ribs literally fell apart trying to eat them and were a real delight, and the smokehouse burger (while far too much for me to finish) was the sort of BBQ burger you see on the photos but rarely actually get. Crunchy onions and mixture of sauces made for a sandwich difficult to tame but highly enjoyable. Our waitress was attentive but not overbearing and seemed to have a talent for showing up when she was most wanted and least interruptive. All in all, fantastic place for a late lunch or filling dinner.

Showtime Carpet Care

After 4 years of going there, the staff always friendly and competent. Food consistently delicious.

Gilbert Morga

Very good BBQ and drinks. Helpful staff and really take good care of you. Very clean and great ambiance,relaxing and ejoying.

Don Nez

waited an hour to be seated, would’ve left but family wanted to eat here. not enough seats to seat the people standing. and i was holding a sleeping baby. saw groups of people going in before the rest of the people waiting. i then asked the hostess why they got to go first and they ignored me then later replied “they probably have reservations”. not making any eye contact with me. finally got seated but felt like we were forgotten by our waiter. had to flag down other waiters to tell our waiter we needed refills or they forgot some of our food. it was a weeknight so wouldn’t expect service like this. first and last time. but the food was amazing!


Had the burger. Was very good. Had this corn side dish and it was really tasty. Great service, and a neat atmoshere.

Colleen S

Great atmosphere, food, and the help were so friendly. Great beer on tap. We stayed close to three hrs and didn't feel rushed at all. Great place to take friends from out of town. The service was wonderful definitely a popular place but they have it under control.

Heather Haas

Tried Bobby Q’s for the first time today and it didn’t disappoint! Food is delicious, I especially could not get over how good the sides were. The Mac and cheese and shoe string fries were a favorite with us. And the service was great. Jordan was our server and deserves the biggest shoutout, he was so patient with our little 18 month old girl and helped us pick out some favorites from the menu. We ended up meeting the GM, Jack I think, and he was also so kind and went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our meal and evening. Thanks BobbyQs! Honestly the food was so good, but the attentive service was the icing on the cake!

Daniel L

Had the giant Texas beef ribs with Mac and cheese and baked potato. Came with four ribs lightly covered in BBQ sauce. It was soft and very good. I've had bigger elsewhere, but taste more than makes up for it. Baked potato was slightly overcooked or had been sitting on a hot plate for a bit too long. The skin on the bottom was hard. The Mac and cheese was very good. Went really well with the baked potato as well as the ribs. Service was great as well, and I prefer it when people are more energetic. Steaks are on the pricier side, but will have to try that another time.

jason cummings

Second time returning, sat at bar,promptly asked for drink order, service was good, music a little bit to loud

Ryan Dickerman

Been coming here for years. Tonight was the BEST it’s ever been. COLTON IS BY FAR THE BEST SERVER IN YOUR ESTABLISHMENT!!!!! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

Thomas Walton

This place is a little out of the ordinary in terms of location and visibility, but it is absolutely worth the search. The atmosphere is old school southern BBQ house, and so is the food. We had the brisket and pulled pork, and it was the best smoked meat I've ever had in my life (and I'm 60). The service was great too. Friendly and on top of everything we needed the whole time. Will definitely be coming back every time we come to Phoenix!

Fernando Cardona

Amazing food. And the corn bread is unlimited so munch on. Had their ribs and I finished it all. Nice and tender and flavorful.

Uni Treighcee

Food was great - 5 stars for the food. Staff, though - did what they had to do, nothing more - didn't go out of their way to make it a 5 star experience. Asked 2 different people for sour cream, by the time we got it we didn't need it anymore. Asked to buy a t-shirt when we were on our way out - had to wait for someone to go get them, then had to go to the bar to wait for bartender to ring it up - ended up being $27 and change for a t-shirt. While we waited we inquired about the donuts and were told everyone gets donuts when they first arrive, we were like oh, we didn't know that, then had to ask if we could have some now. You would've thought they'd offer. Will return because the food was that good.

Eddie Fry

Bobby Q is a great restaurant located just off the I-17. We went there on a recommendation from a friend. It's located in an old Bobby Magee's restaurant and they've left some of the old touches. The inside is newly renovated and provides a great middle class steakhouse atmosphere. My wife and I decided to split the Whole Hog Heaven. I was worried it may not be enough (I'm a big meat eater). I didn't need to worry. The piles of meats on the platter thet brought to the table immediately put my anxiety at ease. The rib meat fell off the bone. The brisket was perfectly tender. The pulled pork was tender and perfectly spiced. Overall an amazing experience. We will be back!

elodia gomez

Everything was delicious! The only problem with this place is that is very popular therefore there is a long waiting!

Ali Beatty

By FAR one of my most favorite places to eat since moving to AZ. NEVER disappointed. Excellent food, great service and warm donuts to end the experience.

Richard Hampton

It has been a long while I've been to Bobby Q's. I cant say much has changed. The food will always be good! But the service is not the best. I sat on the patio and I feel like I was forgotten. The waiter kept apologizing for the long wait and response. The drinks weren't very pleasing either. I ordered an old fashion. The drink had a larger square ice cube that took up most of the glass. The drink was all ice no drink. Probably the worst one I ever had. Other than that, it's a charming place with great food. Just dont sit on the patio.

Daniel Nevarez

It was a Monday night and the place was packed! That says it all right there. Plus any place that gives you free home made donut holes as your leaving will always be tops in my book! Service was great. Atmosphere was electric. And again it was Monday night! Bobby Q is doing something right.

Kevin Delvalle

It had been a long time since we went here and decided to go. FOOD: OUTSTANDING, BODACIOUS, MUEY RICO, DELICIOSO. and just the bet ribs in Phoenix outside my kitchen. We both had the baby back ribs and as usual they we're cooked to perfection with great flavor. Get the full rack and bring 1/2 of them home for later. SUPER warmed up. You will never go wrong eating any dish at Bobby Q's at this location which is the only one we want to go to.

Paul Portillo

The meat is delicious tender and wonderfully smoked. Fried zucchini is thinly sliced and has great flavor. BBQ sauces are ok...could use a little more heat in the spicy one. Regular one is a little sweet. Mac N! Pretty rich and could not finish it. Didn't order an entree (just a sandwich), but was pretty full.


The Filet Mignon was cooked perfectly. Plus they give you a complimentary bag of the most moist, delicious doughnuts.

Wild West Unlimited

We ate here the other night and had Mitch as our waiter. He is AWESOME!!... Our table had a pretty big "wobble" to it. We let Mitch know. He pulled out a small wedge from his pocket and using his small flashlight, he crawled under the table to make it right!... NO wobble now! The food here is also TOP NOTCH! We'll be back!!

Laura Beltran

I ordered the the BBQ chicken with grilled vegetables and mac and cheese for my two sides. It was delicious. I do recommend to get one plate to share because the dishes are well served and they are enough for at least two people.

Charles Dairman

Great selection and very good food. I got the beef and baby back ribs. They were among the best baby back ribs I've had (certainly the best from a restaurant), beef ribs were quite good as well. Free cornbread to start and ree mini donuts to end is an excellent idea (both are cheap for them to make, but really make the overall experience great).


Food is amazing! Only have been to Bobby Q's for club night for the last 10 years. Finally try their food last weekand was a hundred percent satisfied even with our waitress I believe her name was Julie she was amazing very attentive she definitely knows the menu and the food.

Bobby Q's has some of the best barbecue in the state. The restaurant is always kept very clean and my experiences with the employees have always been positive. They keep ice in the urinals which is a nice touch. Their cornbread in my opinion is the best free table food in the restaurant business. Can't wait to go back!

Noel Giamello

We really like the food here. When the mood strikes Bobby Q's will do it. Brisket, ribs and the coleslaw are favorites.

Everett Sandoval

I’ll be returning here for sure! The plates are “pricy” but once you receive your plate, you realize its enough to feed a village. Price justified. Also, make sure you start with the “Q-Rolls”, they are a game changer. The complimentary donuts are great! Just be careful as they are fried in peanut oil.

Veronica Wierer

Everything was great about this place. We didn’t have to wait very long for a table. Our server Kelsey was amazing. Food was delicious. Beer was on point. We will definitely go back.

Excellent food & service best little treat at the end that melts in your mouth! I absolutely loved the prime rib and the sweet potato fries drizzled with honey, or some cinnamon sugar, so yummy with the steamed veggies! Oh let's not forget their cornbread which is to die for delicious. It was a lovely meal. Wish I could say the same for the company.

C Huerta

Service was good, food was not up to the hype. I'll try it again and do something else in the menu. I had the baby back ribs, a little dry

Michi Good

The food was great and service! But please people lock your car at this location my friend didn’t, and someone broke into her car and took a few items.

Danielle Schugars

Delicious food and drinks, excellent service. Plus, free donuts at the end- who could complain about that?

Amy Alford

This was my first visit to this spot. As a southern native I love to try BBQ all over the place. The food was great. Their house sause is really good as well as the baby back ribs. My partner and I shared a "whole hog" plate and had enough left over for a 3rd meal. While the food and service were both really good, and I even enjoyed the atmosphere a lot, I rated this 4 stars because it's slightly over priced in my opinion.

Nyila Hall

Great food fast service worth the money

Marquita Williams

Great food everything was wonderful except the garden salad. When I checked the lettuce it wasn't of good quality to me. Everyone has an opinion but mines is eat everything except the garden salad. That's the only reason for 4 instead of 5 star's.

Semisi Tukia

Great place to take those that are special to you! Make reservation especially on busy evenings like Saturday.

Ashton Stahl

Split the bbq platter with my fiancé and it was enough for the both of us. The ribs fell off the bone and were so tender! We enjoyed our meal and great customer service. Love this place!

Dean McManus

Found this place by chance on a road trip and glad we did! Every single item ordered by our table was perfect. Delicious & cooked to perfection. Service was beyond exceptional! We definitely want to plan another trip to include a stop at Bobby-Q!

Ben Ortiz

I friend recommended a brewery near here and suffice it to say, the brewery was a bad choice. I found this gem thanks to google maps and it blew me away. Great service, pulled pork sandwich and the frickin Mac and cheese was out of this world. I’ll be here every night for the next few days. Two thumbs up. Had to edit the review when the bartender brought me a small bag of fresh made doughnuts for desert. Great touch and marketing class.

Pamela Speijer

Best. Freaking. Ribs. In Arizona.

Toby Koenig

Such great bbq and steaks. Awesome service. Prices a little high but worth it!

Colleen Kosberg

Our new favorite date night! Delicious food, great vibe, and delicious drinks!

Kaihley Reiner

GREAT BBQ!!!! My hubby had the pulled pork sandwich and was amazed at how much meat was on the bun. I very much enjoyed the Smoked Brisket Tacos and had a side of Pecan Cole Slaw that was delicious! The cornbread is good served before the meal and they give you fresh made mini donuts after the meal!

David Grefka

I love this place. Great BBQ. Food is always amazing. The only thing is it hard to have a conversation with people because the music is loud when eating.

Stephanie Owens

The food here is always amazing! Seriously, try the mac n cheese! The service was was outstanding and the atmosphere is very welcoming. I highly recommend it!


This is the one outstanding dining experience for me and my family in a restaurant . Not only the food was most delicious but also the service provided from top to bottom was exceptional. Wonderful restaurant, amazing food, wonderful management

Larry Taylor

Every single thing on the menu sounds drool worthy and unfortunately for my party of 4, we were only able to order 4 things. All the things were amazing. This place does not disappoint. It is all that you hope it to be. First of all, the service is pretty good for being super busy.

Jessica Senecal

If you want to have unbelievable bbq you need to get to this place ASAP. It never disappoints. The corn bread is amazing. I always get the baby back ribs and brisket. It is not cheap so expect to spend about 25-30 a plate but it is totally worth it. Don’t order dessert because they give you mini donuts at the end. Yum!

Derick Davis

The food and service provided by Corey was excellent. We informed him that it was it first time there and he provided is with a little history if the restaurant along with some potential menu suggestions. We enjoyed the strawberry lemonade, appetizer, loaded chicken potato entry, and the brisket tacos. The outside patio garden with the flowers, birds, and water feature were a bonus.

Amanda Layton

Great service and great atmosphere. I liked their patio setup also. The food was excellent, I had the two meat platter with brisket and sausage. The brisket was tender and delicious. Their spicy bbq sauce wasn't spicy too me but still

Daniel Meyer

Had the big prime rib which was perfect. Got to also try the brisket which fell apart and melted in my mouth. Great service and they got us in there and out of there quick like we asked so thank you.

Brian Marsh

Most people believe barbecues religious, I would have to agree. This first time I've been to Bobby-Qs, And I am thoroughly impressed. Austin was our server, and he was very attentive very friendly and the food came out but all the extra fixings. When I asked for moist brisket, he knew exactly what I was talking about and it came out on a platter that was amazing. It was tender and juicy, could cut it up with a fork. We will come here again, and we will ask for Austin as he did an amazing job.

John Link

Being from Kansas City...I KNOW GOOD, GREAT AND EVEN POOR BBQ. Well I'm very HAPPY to say I've FINALLY found some GREAT BBQ in AZ! Great service, portions and food! VERY HAPPY!

Dan Leyva

Great place for friends to meet, food was excellent but pricey.

John Edward

I love this place. The ribs and chicken are to die for. Would recommend to everyone that loves BBQ to give it a try, you'll be back for more.

Debra Matteotti

Food was amazing, large portions and great service. If you can, make reservations in advance. This place was packed! We arrived at 6pm and a table for two took about 45 minutes. Not too bad considering it was dinnertime on a Saturday night.

Javier Carlos

The three words I would describe Bobby-Q are Bold, Brash and Belongs in the t—akeout! This place is phenomenal. I can’t believe I’ve never been to this one but I’ve been to the other one. This is Miles birthday Luis Raquetball I love this place I would definitely go back!!!!!!!!!

Stacey Dobson

Great service drinks and food. We will definitely be back.

Kevin Cooley

great goto when in the area. great food and staff.

Mark Fellhauer

One of the best restaurants in Metro Phoenix. Great food and wonderful service. Don't let the location fool you, the ambiance on premises and inside rivals anything you'd find in a upscale resort town.

Monica Walker

Omg! BBQ is great! Really enjoy food and atmosphere. Donuts at the end were a plus.

Margie Tannehill Higby

I recently ordered ribs, pulled pork and cole slaw for a family get together. I picked it up from the Phoenix location after placing the order the day before. The order was ready on time and it was just as ordered... nothing missed. My family was thrilled! The food was delicious. The ribs were falling off the bone, the pork very tender and juicy. We really liked the pecan cole slaw (they do give you the pecans on the side)... it's fresh, crisp and not drowning in mayonnaise. I highly recommend Bobby Q, but be prepared to pay a premium for their very tasty food.

Teresa Forcine

Had to ask for BBQ sauce 2 times. Food came out with just a splash of sauce. Asked for more. Table of 5 and we got about half a cup. Had another server being us more. Still not enough but at that point why ask again? For the price of my meal I expect to have enough bbq sauce.

Kate Tegtmeyer

Went for dinner with a friend and had such a great time! Fast service, amazing bbq (We has the brisket and pulled pork combos), and at the end they even gave us yummy fresh doughnuts to go! I rolled out of there one stuffed, but happy person!

Leon Knight

Great as always. Friendly and helpful service, good food. Decent prices
