Bobby Q is easily in my top five BBQ restaurants and I've been to more than my fair share. Prices are reasonable for the quality you get. You should be able to get an entree under $20 (Smoked Pulled Pork with your choice of two sides was $17). Service was second to none. Simple and elegant wait staff and table settings. Definitely call ahead for parties over 6. If you don't, waits of 1.5 to 2 hours are possible for large parties on busy nights when you don't call ahead. Normally busy on Friday nights. 3 p.m. seems to be a perfect time if you want to be nearly alone in a restaurant. After 10 p.m. on Thursday, Friday, Saturday night (I'm only certain of those days) Bobby Q turns into a night club with live music or a DJ. Music selection can very greatly so you may want to call ahead and ask.

Wow! My entire family from Iowa raved about this place the whole week that we were in Arizona. It was definitely our favorite restauraunt out of the many that we visited. We had seven adults in our party and did two of the "whole hog heaven" specials and had leftovers to take home. The cornbread before the meal was to die for and the fresh mini donuts at the end were the cherry on top to an incredible dining experience. We will definitely be telling our friends about this place and hope to visit again. My mouth is watering just thinking about those BBQ ribs!

Best BBQ in the valley. This place is a must visit whenever in the area. Succulent smoked meats, sweet golden cornbread and flavorful sides, what more could a man want. Setting and decor are really neat making this place fancy enough for a dinner date or other dinner function. The pulled pork rolls are a must try in my opinion. I have only been to the original location, but I understand that there is now a second one further South. If you like smoked meats, don't miss this place.

Very nice place. I had the 3 meat combo. Great deal! More than enough food. Everything was delicious. They serve cornbread cakes while you order which was different and I usually stay away from the appetizer bread but that stuff was great. Washed down with a Fresh Squeezed IPA. Our server Aspen was delightful and courteous. This will probably be my go-to BBQ place in town. We'll be back (in my Arnold voice).

Haha, I hope you'll be back but not the way Arnold came back, Ronald! Thanks a lot for stopping in and for letting me know how much you liked everything -- I really do appreciate it! Take care, Chef Mark

We were seated at a window table and had a beautiful night with a view that was amazing. The service was attentive but not intrusive. We had a good choice of entrees and everyone was very happy with how delicious their meal was. After dinner we sat in the outside patio area with fire pits and tiki torches. It was...

The service here was amazing and very attentive to our table even though they were busy. The orders came out perfect and the food was amazing! I recommend going here. :) But make sure you have a reservation because the wait can be long if you don't!

I would never recommend to ever call for take out to this place. Nobody there could honestly connect me with the take out section. I was put on hold 4 times with 5 to 6 minutes in between. Every time I have called this place they either mess up the order, forget items I payed for, or just plain rude over the phone. Out of 3 different times trying to call in a $120 order for 8 people and they couldn't care at all. The manager is fantastic. But its just not enough to ever want to go back. After this last incident I was hyper sensitive to the quality of the BBQ. And honestly it's not the best in the valley. The brisket is watery. The buns are soaked through on the drive home. And we get the sauce on the side to stop this from happening. But the brisket is literally dripping with watery wetness. The corn bread is the same way. Just overly greasy, way to oily. The only thing I think I enjoyed was the grilled corn side. So if you are looking for good BBQ you should just keep looking.

Sam, I'm very sorry to hear that you've had consistent problems ordering your meals to-go from us. We don't often get feedback like this, and I'm not sure why your experience has been so atypical, but please know I'll be looking into our customer service quality. I hope you'll give us another chance to make this right, because I know we can. Thank you for the feedback. Take care, Chef Mark
