Every now and again, when you walk into a restaurant, there's something about the place that just feels like home. That's the sensation we want you to have when you step into our highly-acclaimed, down-home BBQ restaurant, Bobby Q's. In a few short years, we've been rated "Best of Gold Coast" by the readers of Westport Magazine, voted Best BBQ - Fairfield County by Readers of Connecticut Magazine, critically acclaimed by the Fairfield County media, and we're a favorite of the Food Network, which has featured us three times! Our sauces consistently beat out BBQ legends from across the country at prestigious BBQ competitions like the "American Royal" in Kansas City, "The Best of the Best" in Georgia, The Scovie Awards in New Mexico and the highly regarded Hot Pepper Awards, where our BBQ sauces earned 1st place honors.
Born out of love for great BBQ, we opened Bobby Q's in the fall of 2004. After traveling many times to visit family in Kansas City and enjoying some of the best BBQ in the country at joints like Gates, Arthur Bryant's,Oklahoma Joe's, L.C.'s, Jack Stack, and cooking up our brand of BBQ over the years for our family and friends, we thought, "Wouldn't it be great to have a place like these back home?" Soon, we ditched our corporate jobs and set our sights on creating a rollicking, casual, gathering place a great spot for families, for couples, for friends and large groups.
Throughout the week, Bobby Q's offers different celebrations. You will find family specials on Mondays and Tuesdays (unbeatable $3 meals for the kids and family entertainment).
On scheduled weekend nights, after the family crowd has been replaced by a boisterous bar scene the place kicks up it's heels with our strong selection of House Specialty Drinks, cold draft beers and live music by the area's best bands. In the summertime, Bobby Rooftop Beer Garden is the place to be for outdoor drinks, live music and dancing under the stars 'til the wee hours.
Our friendly staff, many with us since day one, are a fun, attentive group who want to make customers happy and make sure things are done right. Under our watchful eye, our Pitmaster Matt continues to produce consistently great BBQ and an amazing array of mouthwatering American dishes for the whole table to enjoy. We are proud of the Bobby Q's family and, in this vein, we have expanded our full-service restaurant to include take-out, catering, and Private Parties on our Roof Deck for people celebrating 40th birthdays, winning seasons or just celebrating life.
And Bobby Q's continues to morph and grow. We have bottled our line of award-winning BBQ Sauces, rubs and created a unique line of merchandise, all available for on-line and restaurant purchase.
Bobby Q's, located in the heart of downtown Westport, has become just what we had envisioned: a lively neighborhood hub featuring authentic BBQ in a fun and changing venue seven days a week. We hope you will share in our passion for the barbeque experience. Come join us for a little fun and socializing...try all of our carefully crafted menu offerings and BBQ sauces, grab your favorite drink, enjoy the tunes and, most importantly, smile...you have just arrived in Bobby Q's Barbeque Heaven.
