Phoenix’s Bobby-Q Great Steaks & Real BBQ, founded by legendary restaurateur Bob Sikora, is expanding its footprint in the Valley with a second location opening in Mesa this September. Located at 1610 S. Stapley Dr. across from the AMC Mesa Grand movie theater, the new Bobby-Q’s will be housed inside an appealingly remodeled space, serving up the same national award-winning menu and famously friendly service that has made the original West Phoenix location such a hit for the past 11 years.
Now under construction inside a soaring 7,800-square-foot space that formerly housed R.T. O’Sullivan’s, Bobby-Q in Mesa will boast a similarly rustic, rugged look as the original, including warm wood tables and vintage light fixtures accented with rough-hewn wood planks and vintage Americana artwork. Seating over 400 with the two spacious outdoor dining patios, the new Bobby-Q will feature an immensely large wooden bar-top that extends from the dining room right into “Bob’s Social Bar”. Featuring a mix of classic and new rock, the Social Bar will offer both cozy couch seating and stylish tables hand carved from juniper roots, and will pair great music and food with a happy hour and late night menu served until 2 a.m. Both the dining room and the Social Bar will offer a seamless indoor-outdoor vibe with slide-away window walls leading to expansive and air-cooled dining patios. Meanwhile, to-go and catering customers will also love Bobby-Q’s dedicated entrance for call-in or pick-up orders.
Led by Executive Chef Mark Hittle, Bobby-Q in Mesa will dish out meat hand-rubbed with a proprietary spice blend, then smoked slow and low in an almond/mesquite mixture in a custom wood-fired smoker to create succulent Pulled Pork, Smoky Sausage Links, sliced to order Prime Beef Brisket, and three varieties of ribs (St. Louis, Texas Beef & Baby Back) that fall right off the bone. In addition to award-winning BBQ, Bobby-Q’s also offers juicy, wood-smoked Rotisserie Chicken, Salmon, fresh-ground Burgers, hand-cut-wood-fired-wet-aged Steaks and farm-fresh Salads. Plus, all-new for the Bobby-Q in Mesa, enjoy an ever-changing list of craft cocktails hand-made with fresh ingredients available at both the restaurant and inside the adjoining Social Bar Tuesday through Saturday until 2 am.
