No trip to Bobby Q Grille is complete without trying their ribs. It’s the best thing I’ve tried so far and possibly some of the best ribs in the city. That might not be saying much since Vegas isn’t know for it’s BBQ, but it’s still delicious with it’s slightly charred exterior and fall-off-the-bone tender meat. The pulled pork and hot link are excellent, as well. The beef brisket was under seasoned and my least favorite of the BBQ meats. Their BBQ plate ($12) comes with your choice of two meats and two sides.

The sides were good, but aren’t exactly on the same level as the BBQ. The bacon mac ‘n cheese was light on bacon but still gooey and delicious. If you’re a fan of chunky mashed potatoes, you’ll like their garlic mashed potatoes. Fries were nice and crispy and freshly cut in-house. None of that frozen stuff here. Veggies were a bland mix of broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, cucumbers, and pea pods. But, adding the creole seasoning they provided on the side made a world of difference.

Chicken tenders are real strips of breast meat that are lightly breaded and deliciously crispy. Again, nothing that has been frozen or that was pre-packaged. They even make their own ranch dressing.

The only dessert I’ve tried was the strawberry jello cake ($5). It’s basically cake soaked in jello, topped with whipped cream and served in a mason jar. It’s damn good, big enough to share, and guaranteed to satisfy your sweet tooth.

The place is located in a gaming tavern but kid’s are allowed in the dining area. Just not in the bar area.

This restaurant has some great potential. The biggest drawback is that they can run out of certain items (like the ribs or brisket) well before dinner time. Of course, that’s because they’re new and they don’t have a consistent, steady stream of customers from day to day. If the ribs and pulled pork are on the menu when you visit, consider yourself lucky and order them.

It’s owned and operated by a husband and wife team that also owns two food trucks — Sin City Wings and Bens BBQ, which they purchased from its original owner earlier in the year. The customer service has been outstanding on both visits. Bobby and his wife take the time to speak with every guest to chat about the food. Their passion for the business is evident, not just in how they talk about the food, but by how everything is prepared. Just about everything is made from scratch with no corners being cut in the execution of their dishes.
