Omg love this place! I wish there was a BBQ place as great as this one in Denver. My family and I had the "hog heaven" which consisted of baby back ribs, st. Louis style ribs, pulled pork, brisket, mac and cheese, Ranch beans, and shoestring fries. We also had corn bread. Everything we had was phenomenal I really couldn't chose what I liked best. Even our waitress, Alexis was great. She was competent, friendly and attentive. And to top things off, they give you in house made donuts on your way out💕 sweet tea here is a must! ! Looking forward to our next trip to Phoenix😄😄😄

Where do I start? Wonderful... Let's start with a perfect atmosphere, appropriately adorned with the right amount of rustic meets darker lit urban spoon, loft style dining "palace". We were greeted well at the door which continued throughout our stay including a sincere visit by the manager. Our server, Mateo was awesome. Attentive to our first visit needs and meeting my one pet peeve by always keeping our drinks full, even before the glasses were empty. On to the food...ok stop there and let's just say cornbread!!! Had to order another basket, not too dry, not to moist...delightful. The family ordered a variety to meet our equally distinct tastes. The filet was perfectly prepared, the pulled pork and beef brisket was cured and seasoned just right and the cat fish was to die for, even though I must lather it in their spicy BBQ sauce...sorry chef. I equally enjoyed the grilled corn and my wife's hand mashed potatoes was a must share. For the cons...the portions are big and I felt really guilty not being able to eat everything and clear the table. Well, I'm sure our take home will make great left overs. Thank you to the entire staff for making our first visit impressionable and we will be sure to return. Rob

Wow, Rob. Where do *I* start? I can't thank you enough for this awesome, detailed review. I'm glad you loved it all so much! And don't worry -- put as much BBQ sauce as you want on anything you want, that's what it's for! Seriously, though, thanks again. Hope we see you again soon! Take care, Chef Mark

Ok I am going to try and get through this fast because I am heading into a food coma and quick. So my friend and I had dinner tonight and we were seated by the lovely manager Rennie who was just so delightfully cheerful. Then we got the best server in the place Jack. I decided to change it up and get something other than the ribs so I chose the two meat combo. OMG the pork and brisket was to die for and I was not disappointed at all. My food was full of flavor and the meat was tender and juicy you could cut it with a fork. I had chose this plate because my friend ordered the same and she made it sound so good and I was not sorry for not ordering the ribs which are oh so delicious as well. Jack was quick and on top of keeping our drinks filled and making sure we were taken care of so if you decide to dine here ask for him. When we had finished our meal we were pretty full and had opted not to have dessert but Jack was such a sweetie and came out with this heavenly chocolate ice cream cake. I was so full but this cake was just so darn good. I am home now happy and full with my puppy who is licking my bbq scented face lol. I had an extraordinary dining experience and will undoubtedly be back very soon. Sorry no pics were taken because the food was too good I forgot :) next time though.

Thanks so much for this amazing review, D! Happy to hear you loved the pork and brisket just as much as the usual ribs, and I'm sure Jack will be really glad you were so happy with his service when I show him this review. Hope we'll be seeing you again soon! Take care, Chef Mark

Wow! As soon as I tasted the corn bread I knew I was in for a treat! This was exactly what I was looking for when it comes to BBQ. I thought I was at a backyard BBQ. The service was awesome. It was down right friendly. Ashlyn, our server, was the best. She treated us like true guests. I will be back and I advise everyone to try out their Bobby Q.
Response from the owner - a month ago
I really appreciate this, Ryan! Thanks so much for being such a fan of ours. I'll pass this on to Ashlyn too, I know she'll be happy to hear what you had to say. Hope we see you again soon for more! Best, Chef Mark

My wife's new favorite place. She absolutely loves the salmon, says it's the best she's ever had (and she's gets it everywhere) including several places IN Alaska! I've had many items from brisket to chicken to the ribs and all are great, but I always go back to the steak and crab (Saturday nights only). The Q rolls are phenomenal as well. Honestly, about 20 visits and never a bad meal. Got the eclub set up after emailing for a fix, but waitresses have been kind to honor special occasions in spite of coupons presented. This place will satisfy the taste buds every time!

I'm guessing that the people that give this establishment a 4.5 star rating are not used to high quality food. It has more of a sports/western bar feel to it than a restaurant. The Cajun shrimp we ordered as a starter were drowned in some kind of cheap, nasty, flavorless oil.(I'm guessing soy or rapeseed oil) They barely had any flavor, were rubbery. My son ordered the Prime Rib, which was extremely salty. The "corn bread" was obviously deep fried, and super greasy. The bread that came with the Cajun shrimp was horrible, super greasy, with who knows what. My glass of red wine even tasted watered down. I'm so glad I appreciate fine dining. I would rate this place along with other fast food places like The Olive Garden, Mc Donald's, etc. I don't think we'll be going there again. I'm at the point of not wanting to go out to eat anymore. It's all GM, overcooked factory food.

Thanks for giving us a try and leaving a review. I'm sorry you don't appreciate our food more, though it's disappointing that you consider us fast food. We prepare everything fresh in-house. Thanks again for sharing your experience. -Chef Mark

We came into town from Albuquerque, NM. While driving down the freeway we could smell the barbeque. My husband said we're eating there! We are sure glad we did. Everything we ordered was amazing! Wish there were bigger portions of meat in the two meat combo. The service was excellent and everyone was so friendly.
Response from the owner - a month ago
Thanks for taking the time to stop in and check us out, KC! Glad you guys loved everything so much. We do have different sizes of meat, so next time we'll be glad to get you more if you need it. Maybe the Whole Hog Heaven to split next time? At any rate, thanks again -- hope we see you again sometime! Take care, Chef Mark

I had a wonderful dinner but after spending over $250 on dinner. We were told that are close with too baggy. Correction I'm sorry I was told that my clothes were too baggy because I was African American. When I was wearing polo khakis dress shoes and a button up polo t-shirt all slim fit. But I must say that the food was four star but on Saturday nights African Americans are not welcome

Nate, I am glad you enjoyed your dinner at Bobby Q. We dont have a dress code in the restaurant, so I am guessing you probably are talking about the Q Lounge. They do enforce a tight dress code on certain nights, Im sorry you got caught up in it on a Saturday Night. but All the best, Chef Mark
