Big Oak is a great BBQ place, the ribs are fabulous and are always fresh and tender. the fried squash is also one of the best in town. If you don't try Big Oak you are missing out. We go to the one on Dunns Ave. I highly recommend them!

I've eaten here several times and have had dine-in and take out. The BBQ is always consistent, a good smoked taste. Ribs usually tender, chicken not dried out. The greens are good, coleslaw has a good taste but too much mayo, beans not so good. Restaurant is clean, a good find - if you're not sure you'd like to eat-in... More

We stopped here for lunch and we were not disapointed. We had plates of beef and turkey . Sides were good, place clean and service friendly. We will come back again

Very good BBQ. Much better than the local chains. Ribs are solid, good collards. Daily lunch specials. Definitely will be back.

I stop here from time to time when I am working on the north side. I like places where you can order then sit down. A bit more relaxing. Service is quick and friendly. Food tastes great and the sauces are great too. Kind of surprised on the location because its in a run-down area with a lot of crime.

Beef is as good as you can get in Florida! Chicken is really moist and ribs are great! Nice size BBQ salad along with rocking collard greens. If the sauce bottles were not always sticky I could give it 5 stars compared to all other Jacksonville BBQ joints!

The Wings were just okay. The Baked Beans were just okay. The Meat Combo Beef + Sausage was good, the sausage was better than the meat. The Lima Beans were bland and not tasty. The Potato Salad was less than average. The tables were dirty, so were the restrooms.
