Went to Bobby Q for dinner while visiting Phoenix for business. Our wonderful server recommended that we start with Q Rolls - super tasty bits of tender smoky brisket wrapped in a bread dough. Yummy as all get out. Did the two ribs combination for dinner. These guys know how to smoke St. Louis ribs low and slow until the... More

Charles, glad to hear how much you loved everything, especially the ribeye! Most people focus on the BBQ, so it's good to know you thought the steak was just as great. Come back any time! Take care, Chef Mark More

We tried the whole hog heaven meal because we wanted to try more things. It didn't disappoint, incredible ribs (we had st Louis and baby back). Brisket and chicken and Spicy sauce were incredible. Sides were the disappointment. Corn was good, but baked beans and Cole slaw were lacking. Not bad just not up to par with incredible meats. Coconut... More

While it's fantastic to hear that the ribs, brisket, chicken, and spicy sauce all hit the mark, I do wish the rest of the meal had lived up to that quality. I can assure you that we put time, passion, and care into everything we cook here, so I'll certainly be keeping a closer eye on the sides to ensure... More

Been here twice now and it doesn't disappoint! Hubby gets a full rack of ribs with spicy sauce. Falls off the bone! Pulled pork and/or rotisserie chicken are my choices. So moist and juicy! Sweet potato fries are very good but not worth the extra for a side. Mashed taters excellent. Mac and cheese ordinary so don't waste the calories.... More

It's wonderful to hear that you and your husband have enjoyed both of your visits here! You guys certainly order well -- the ribs are a major favorite around here, and of course, you can't go wrong with mashed taters. We do hope that the quality of our food makes everything worth every penny, but we know that ultimately this... More

Wow! We had an amazing visit! Let's start with choosing to sit in the bar to eat due to a long wait. Our waiter, Bryce, was wonderful! He took great care of us, told us stories, and made our night. The food was exceptional. We had ribs (the best in the Southwest), pork, chicken, and fried chicken tenders. The coleslaw... More

Plenty of beer and margarita choices. The full rack of baby back ribs with the two sides were enough for the two of us. The warm corn bread was good and the warm donuts to top things off were fun.

Sat at the bar to have dinner and watch a game. Bartender/server was very personable and attentive but not overbearing. Cocktail (The Hammer) was delicious. I love beef ribs so ordered the Texas Beef Ribs, roasted corn, and shoestring fries for the sides. Ordered the corn based on another review which described the corn as having a BBQ flavour with...

I'm surprised to read this review -- the kind of issues you describe here are not what customers can typically expect from us, as you can probably tell from most of our other reviews. I'm sorry you didn't have the same great experience here that most of our patrons do. One point of clarification, though: We offer the Thank Q... More
