Driving thru town and needed a bite to eat so checked Trip Advisor and decided on Big Baldys. Got the food to go. Sandwiches were just average. The meat really had no smoke flavor or seasoning. The fries were good. Also had the clam strips and they were ok. When you enter the restaurant there is a wall and no... More

While traveling through the area I saw this place and decided to stop for lunch after seeing a big smoker outside.It's counter service inside. I ordered the badwitch sandwich which is a half pound of whatever meat you want. I had the pulled pork and it was excellent, big pieces and full of flavor. I had a side of cole... More

We had chicken and beef salads, definitely four stars. We also had three kids meals. Only one of our children could barely finish it, the rest we took home for snacks. The large fish aquarium kept the kids interest while waiting for our food. Great place for family dining. Only problem is they close early even during summer.

First of all, I will admit I am a bbq snob. I have eaten bbq all over the country and have gone on road trips specifically for bbq. This bbq is good. We live over an hour away in Springfield, and this is our choice for bbq. To those who say it is overpriced, I would like to know where... More

Restaurant is really nice, fish tank needs cleaned out, but cool. On the other hand for no more than what I ordered I could have gone to a store and made it cheaper. Ordered loaded baked potato with pulled pork, watery and greasy, potato looked old, pork was just that, pork. First time there probably the last.

The BBQ is good, the prices are good, the counter staff is OK. You order at the counter, and go back up to get your food, so you really aren't "Waited on". Can't get the management to participate in community events. Good food, good price, pretty fast service, that's about it.

Counter service is fast if somewhat grumpy and matter of fact. Ribs were excellent. Prices are reasonable.

Left an honest review on their facebook page and was blocked. This was our first time visiting the restaurant. Nice decor. When food was served quickly, but it seemed like it had been microwaved (you could tell by the buns). My sandwich was watery (as if it has been frozen and reheated) and left the bun a doughy mess by... More

First we were overcharged. Then the meat was not good, very fatty, had to throw over half of one rib away. Another piece was not fully cooked. It was still bloody! Had to ask twice for several things. It was also overpriced in my opinion. I will not be back, it just gets worse every time we go.
