We arrived about 6:00 pm and were delighted that we could eat outdoors and we had a country western band to entertain us. We love country music and BBQ--could not ask for a better combination. Seating is family style and we got to meet other tourists. The meat was tender and juicy and we loved every minute of it! Hubby... More

We both love barbecue and were sure, after reading reviews and getting two in-person recommendations at our hotel, that we were in for a delicious dinner! Not so much - the pulled pork wasn't very good, the beans and slaw were blah, and the potato salad was the best part of the meal other than the scoop of ice cream... More

Found this place after consulting Trip Advisor and glad we had dinner here. The delicious aroma as you walk in promises yummy barbecue. Portions are large. Cowboy beans the best I've tasted. Service is friendly. Next time I'll save room for cobbler!

We were on the way to Ken's lower antelope tour (which was amazing!) and caught a smell of the huge smokers out in front of Big John's...well, after our tour we headed back to Big John's for a fantastic lunch. This place actually deserves more than a rating of 5! Our family of five tried an array of different things... More

Probably some of the best bar b cue that we have had. We did take out and the restaurant provided all the napkins, forks, etc. The meat falls off the bones. Cowboy beans are a must and we really enjoyed the cole slaw. We each had half a rack and it was quite filling

I have a BBQ standard - Rollin' Smoke BBQ in Las Vegas NV. This is the measuring stick I use for every BBQ place I try. Well today I may have found its match with quality of smoked meat and service attitude in a little place called Page, Arizona. My wife and I drove by this place and could see... More

We just happened to drive by this place on a Friday night and quickly turned our car around to go back. Lots of people eating, dancing and listening to live country music all outside, open air! The service was great. The hostess was very friendly and helped us find a place at one of the very full picnic tables. We... More

I had a small set of ribs, since ribs are not normally my favorite. I was pleasantly surprised they literally "fell off the bone", and tasted great. I would eat a full plate next time.

The restaurant look like a fast food inside and like a party outside. The meat is really tasty, the side tasteless. It is a pity that it's served in paper plate and plastic cutely ( not easy for the meat) A bit too expensive as only the meat is worth it.

Big John's Texas BBQ is a family owned barbeque joint who brings a BIG taste of Texas to Arizona. We slow smoke our meats on wood for hours... You DO NOT need a reservation, just come on down!
