We decided to try Big Art's BBQ Sunday - Big disappointment! The service was horrible. We watched 5 tables who came in after us order, receive, and eat their food before us (We were a party of 3 adults and 2 children 5,7). We asked...More

I have been going to Big Arts for many years. I like the ribs and the price is more reasonable than other more well known rib restaurants in Cincinnati. The atmosphere is casual and the background music is blues/jazz. Some folks complain about the wait...More

Have never eaten in the restaurant, only take-out, but it is wonderful! The cajun fries are delicious and such a nice change from fries. The garlic toast is also a nice treat. The bbq is "fall off the bone" delicious. I can't say enough good...More

A family and friend favorite for years. Cincinnati has several good ribs places, but Big Art's is the king. A real gem, especially when compared to the usual national chain restaurants that surround us every where we go.
