Three of us had dinner, enjoying the BBQ meal. The meat servings were generous, but the sides were small and very average. Don't miss the Grand Canyon Amber beer. A real bonus was the live music stage. The place is packed, so go early.

Driving by you might just keep going, but huge mistake. The ribs fall off the bone and are smoked daily. They have live music and the service is the best.

We stopped here early one evening - sat outside and had some of the best food we have had the whole trip. It's a simple menu but what they do - they do well! We had the pulled pork, brisket, and ribs. All was delicious....More

Great BBQ! We ate lunch, and they were not crowded, but when we drove by again at night, people were in line to get in! Live music and line dancing at night make this a fun place. I would say it's an adult restaurant (especially...More

I was there on a Friday night and there was a live band next to the patio. You have to call them to see if they allow dogs. I don't remember seeing any when I went.

You can add as much or as little as you want when it comes to their delicious BBQ sauce. It's the best!

Yes, inside tables were filled with happy diners; outside picnic tables too. The restaurant is an old gas station so that gives you an idea of the size. Wish we could head back this weekend!

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!
