Bobby Q

8501 N. 27th Ave. Phoenix, AZ 85051 | North Phoenix | 602-995-5982

Location Description:

You'll get better 'cue at Big City BBQ, but Bobby-Q (formerly Bobby McGee's) is selling more than just slathered pork - it's selling atmosphere, and on this it does deliver. The upscale, urban-cowpoke setting features weathered repros of antique ad signs, sconces fashioned from old eating utensils, and a patio enclosed by red-brick inset with colored-glass bottle bottoms. Problem is, the food is hit or miss, with the brisket being the best of Bobby-Q's offerings, and the desserts the worst. Still, Bobby-Q is a handsome waterin' hole, and the ribs are okay, if not stellar.
