CTbites Team

While we were very sad to hear the following news regarding the close of Bobby Q's Bodacious BBQ in Westport, we know there will be another chapter for Bob Le Rose after the March 31st close. Read on for closing celebration events through the end of March. 

Bobby Q’s Bodacious BBQ & Grill in Westport is celebrating its successful 11 year run in town before closing its doors on March 31.  Opened by Bob LeRose in the fall of 2004, the restaurant has become known as a local watering hole for families, couples and friends, all seeking award-winning BBQ, creative house drinks and the best live music in Fairfield County.

“We’ve had an amazing run as a member of the Westport community for the past eleven years, establishing friendships and seeing kids grow up over the years,” commented owner Bob LeRose.  “We are looking forward to celebrating with our friends and family over the next three months, remembering all of the good times that were had – birthday parties, family dinners, celebrations and more - and those that are still TO BE had at Bobby Q’s, before we fire up our smoker in Westport one last time at the end of March.  While I’m sad that this chapter of my restaurant career is coming to an end, I’ll have some exciting news coming soon on my next chapter.”

To invite the community to join in on the celebration over the next three months, Bobby Q’s will be offering numerous promotions.  Kicking things off for the month of January to celebrate National Pie Day, the restaurant will be offering each table one complimentary slice of pie throughout the entire month. The restaurant’s social media channels -  @bobbyqs on Twitter and Bobby Q’s Bodacious BBQ & Grill on Facebook – will be announcing additional promotions and contests to continue the celebration through the end of March.

“We’re proud to have had a particularly strong relationship with the local Westport Fire Department and Police Department over the years,” added LeRose.  “To say thank you for their tireless service, I’d like to offer members of both departments 50% off their dine-in or take-out bill throughout the month of January.”


The restaurant will also be continuing to offer its Monday & Tuesday Family Night promotions, inviting kids 12 and under to eat from the kid’s menu for $3.00 per child.  The Saturday evening indoor concert series will also continue, with concerts beginning at 10pm:
