Had a recent birthday dinner here w a party of 5. Service was excellent, a small wait on a Saturday but to be expected here. We had two of the everything platters and all of the bar B Q was amazing. I especially enjoyed the brisket, others favored the beef ribs and yet others the pork ribs. You really can't... More

My sister and I stopped in here for lunch today. I didn't know what to expect other then some great reviews on BBQ. We were both blown away by the amazing food. From the warm corn bread to the donuts at the end of our meal this place is a winner. We ordered the pulled pork sandwich and the BBQ... More

We're locals, but never visited until recently. Went for a special occasion lunch--a 90ish birthday. So the place is off the highway but feels secluded. Lots of parking in back. Great BBQ smell upon arrival. Our table of 5 was seated next to a table of about 50 (no kidding). A bit loud, but again, a special occasion/party place so... More

Went there for dinner since this was a fairly highly rated restaurant near my hotel. It's a large restaurant with a huge patio. It looks like a hopping place on the weekends and sitting out on the patio on a warm night would be very pleasant. Sadly, the food was completely underwhelming. The bar tender recommended the brisket which is... More

I'm surprised to hear that the BBQ was so disappointing -- we normally get much better feedback than this, so this is concerning. I'll look into what might have gone wrong, because I know we're better than the experience you had. I hope you'll give us another try if you're ever back in town. Thanks for letting me know about...

Went with co-workers who come to Booby Q's whenever they are in town. Since I was the new guy I followed them as they were telling me how good it was, and they were right. If you've never been here before they serve cornbread biscuits while your waiting for your meal. I ordered the 8oz steak with potato and corn.... More

BQ certainly has tons of great reviews, and BBQ fans have strong preferences.Went for dinner and both the ribs and brisket were some of the worst we've had. Ribs mushy, a little fatty, no taste- some type of spicy sensation but no real flavor.The ribs actually looked unappetizing, and it was not just mine-I tried to see ribs on nearby... More

Wow! As KC residents visiting the area, we were blown away by the BBQ at this place, and we grew up on BBQ. The ribs and pulled pork were super tender. From the service to the sides, everything was spot on. Especially impressed by the team approach to service. Highly recommend!

Went to this restaurant, after it was recommended,by someone who said it was great. Upon arrival the staff was very friendly. We sat on the patio,which was a little crowded,walking space was very tight. The waiter was very nice and attentive . The lemonade was phenomenal . Our appetizer was the spinach dip, which came with French breadsticks, but it... More

I'm as disappointed to read this as you were in your meal, if not more so, I think. I just wish we'd known at the time that you weren't satisfied so we could've done something to improve your experience.

We arrived in Phoenix on a Friday evening, checked in at Homewood Suites, and while the rest of the weekend was pretty much planned, we were in search of someplace that was not a big drive. Bobby Q rated high on the TripAdvisor list and it was just about 15 minutes away. Wait was 25 minutes, which was reasonable. We... More
