My sons and I have been fans of Bobby Q's since we first visited the one off I-17, but it was about a 45-minute drive away, depending on traffic. Imagine how thrilled I was to know one just opened 15 minutes down the street from...More

First off, the place is a little difficult to find--you have to maneuver your way through several parking lots of other restaurants to get there. That being said, you walk through a little sidewalk of tropics and then when you enter--friendly faces there to greet...More

The food is very good but you better like smoked meat. I had the fried chicken which was excellent. One thing on the menu that wasn't smoked.

Bobby Q offers a culmination of barbeque favorites. Along with extensive barbecue research mixed with culinary expertise, the secret behind Bobby Q's barbeque lies within the slow cooking process over Tennessee hickory wood paired with the perfect blend of spices found in the special dry rub for the meat, as executed by barbeque master, Executive Chef Mark Hittle. This results in succulent hand-pulled pork, smoky sausage links, fork-tender brisket, and ribs that fall right off the bone.

The starters will whet your appetite and the desserts will satiate your sweet-tooth cravings, but the barbecue is the show-stopper. Visit the newest location in Mesa for barbecue fare unlike any other.
