“Brisket, brisket, brisket”
Review of Bobby Q

Bobby Q
Ranked #6 of 980 Restaurants in Mesa
Price range: US$ 10 - US$ 30
Description: 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.

If not for the brisket, this place would get 3 stars. If not for the other food, it would get 5 stars. I had brisket, ribs, and sausage. The brisket was truly the best I've ever tasted! Cornbread and donuts were also good. Everything else was tasty but just average. The prices were high but the quantities were large. Go here if you want excellent brisket. Otherwise, save money and go somewhere else.

Thank whrgogt

Whrgogt, thank you for the review, I wish you would have let a manager know that you felt your ribs and sausage were just average while you were here...We would have got you something that would have been more to your liking. It does sound like you really enjoyed the brisket, and I appreciate you sharing your experience!

Cheers
Chef Mark

Went with friends for first time to the Mesa location. Asked about ordering the "whole Hog" - server told us it would serve 2 people so we ordered 2 other single plates - there was enough food for 8 people. 4 people could be sated with 1 whole hog. We had a sample of everything and all was good - brisket a bit dry - which seems to be the way they serve brisket in the USA - someone should take a trip to Montreal to understand moist smoked meat.
Will go back.

We attended this location last night foe dinner with friends. The service was excellent, but the food! OMG! Best BBQ I've ever enjoyed. The portions are huge! The restaurant itself is very nicely decorated and has a rustic feel. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

We made a reservation for 6 and when we arrived we were greeted and seated quickly.

We were given a generous basket of fresh baked cornbread to munch on while waiting for our mains. Very moist and delicious it was a good start.

The ribs, brisket and chicken perfectly cooked,seasoned and sauced. The orders were huge and even our biggest appetite wou d up with a doggie bag. This is delicious BBQ and ranks with thecbest I've had. The sides were plentiful and tasty as well. There was no room for desert but they also seemed to ne spot on, but the highlight was the fresh, hot mini donuts delivered with our bill.

Overall a great night, which will definitely lead to a return visit soon.
