This joint was so good, I may even argue it’s some of the best BBQ I’ve had in Canada. As a southerner, I would have like to have seen some local fare BBQ’d (ie caribou and sea creatures) on the menu. It’s a shame that...More

Small restaurant but big on friendly service. A broad menu with good prices for Iqaluit. A good place to chat with other visitors. They offer take-out too.

Now costs in Iqaluit are high, but that is to be expected. The value for what you get at Big Racks though is spot on. The quantity compared to other restaurants was much better. The flavours were top notch. We tried the pulled pork, brisket,...More

I know it is an odd thing to say about a BBQ place, but they really do have good pizza. The BBQ is also quite tasty. Service is really friendly and quite helpful.

I had the fish & chips. I would rate it as average, probably a bit too much batter for my taste but the chips were delicious, so can't complain :).

Generous portions and very friendly staff. We had two orders of ribs which were cooked tender and delicious.

Great food. I highly recommend the bbq plate! It’s like $20 but you get to choose 2 meats (like pulled pork and ribs) and then 2 sides (like fries and coleslaw).

This restaurant would not pass a food and health safety inspection. Violations galore ... oily-dirty floors and walls, filthy washroom, table tops wiped down with multi-purpose rag. Seriously, too many food/safety issues to list here. Enter at your own risk. Not sure why they have...More

I had great fish & chips at this local restaurant within walking distance of my hotel. The owner was a very interesting man to talk to and everyone was very nice. Everyone comes to Iqaluit for different reasons, and they have found success as a...More

The food is fantastic. The menu is excellent, giving the people of Iqaluit a "foodie" option they did not have before. BBQ was badly needed in Iqaluit and Big Racks fills that need. The ribs are the best I have had. They would need a...More
