I have been going to Big Jims ever since I moved to Parker. He has a smoker going all weekend and has the best BBQ around. Even when we drive by, we open the windows just to get that famous smell. His sauce is excellent. Big Jim greets everyone like he has known them for years.

Pulled pork sandwich on plain sliced bread... Wasn't pulled was chopped cause it was tuff and grizzly fatty. Cole slaw sour tasting, but food smells good. Ribs, st Louis style are disgusting, so tuff and we asked if they were baby back cause sign doesn't say St. Louis style. So the guy lied! No sides for that. Total bill $60.00... More

Always smells great when passing by on Parker Road so had to try it. They serve big ole St Louis style ribs, yum! Nice and smokey and good sauce. Down side is that they are on the pricey side, particularly for a food truck.

Everyone kept telling us to try Big Jim's Ribs. Every time we drive by the smell is amazing. We finally got the chance to try them and were very disappointed. They were tough and chewy. Not at all juicy and fall off the bone ribs like we expected them to be. Also, very pricey. I would not recommend them.

Chewy, tough meat and cobbler that looked like it had been dropped on the floor. And way overpriced. But be sure to stop at the cupcake truck Sweet'Ness that shares a parking lot. Great cupcakes!

Good smokey barbecue. Pricey, not for everyday. Special occasion. Kind of, been there, done that, for the price. Big Jim is very nice though.

No frills BBQ, best ever. Operates on a busy corner on Friday, Saturday and Sundays only. Take it with you no place to sit down. Visiting with Big Jim is alone worth the trip. Great BBQ beef, prok, chicken. Ribs and beans out of this world.
