Went to Waldo's with a friend about a week ago...Ordered ribs and fries...The ribs were the best that I had in years...Traveled from Arkansas to visit friend in Mesa...Arkansas BBQ restaurants need to go there to lear how to make good BBQ ribs...The wait staff was very pleasant.

Waldo's can do BBQ!!! I have only been once but from the menu I could go again and be happy with whatever I might select. My head was turning every time the wait staff went by with a plate for someone else. It all looked and smelled wonderful. Portions were large enough to save some for the next day which was just as good.

Solid meal with a nice homemade bbq sauce. Homemade sauce is mustard base with good flavor. Tried Baby Back Ribs, pulled pork, beef brisket and sausage. All were excellent and done well. Smoke flavor throughout.

Everyday run of the mill barbecue joint, similar to what McDonald's is to hamburgers. Service is good but they need to send the barbecue master to Memphis and get some serious culinary expertise. Brisket was dry and tough. Baby back ribs undistinguished and blah. Sides were the standard beans, corn on the cob, coleslaw, and cornbread. Plus they served me what was represented as an IPA but actually a brown ale and charged 2 bucks more. To add insult to injury there was an 18.5% automatic gratuity thrown in because of the party being 7 people. That works at Ruth's Chris not here.

We stop in for BBQ as soon as we arrive in Mesa. We love the ribs, the brisket, and my son is very partial to the mac & cheese side! Great service and always a good meal!
