Oh yes, if you like to eat and eat good BBQ, steaks, burgers, sides and apps then go here and go often. Was on business in Goodyear last month and could almost walk from our hotel to Bobby Q's. Their sauces are way good! Try 'em all!

Went here purely on advice from tripadvisor. Let's just say thank goodness for tripadvisor! There was 4 of us there for the Final Four. We had lunch on a Friday, no problems at all getting a seat. We loved the atmosphere inside but we ate outside. We ordered the $49.99 Bbq platter, and chose two 1/2 slab of ribs, chicken,... More

This place surely is the best BBQ in town (in the state or maybe in the US?) We had the combo plate again and everything was just great - service good too. Looking forward to our third visit !!!!

So, my husband and I were driving back to San Diego from the white mountains and it was about lunch time and we needed to eat before we hit the road again. My husband wanted BBQ so we found this place and decided to try it for lunch. First off, the staff is really nice, warm and friendly. EVERYONE was... More

We visited after flying in to Phoenix before making our way to Prescott to visit the college my daughter is attending. It is just off the freeway so it is convenient for a stop on the way. We were very happy with our experience. We sat in their outdoor seating area. Not only was it a beautiful seating area, it... More

This place is average at best. The sauce was just ok, meat was fatty... and service (Not food...meaning the actual server) was very slow at drink refills, requests, etc... I won't be recommending we have our next meeting here anytime soon with all the other choices in the metro center area.

Sandie, thank you for the feedback. I'm surprised to see this -- great food AND great service are our highest priorities, and if you experienced anything less in either department, I apologize. I hope you'll give us another chance soon. Take care, Chef Mark More

I just went there with 3 other guys, and we ordered their Whole Hog sampler: ribs (as good as they get), brisket (ditto), pulled pork (above average), mac n cheese (words cannot describe it), roasted corn (really good), baked beans, eh, and some mini cornbread pones they send out early (awesome!).
