Big John's has the best ribs, chicken and sausage ever. Sides are good to! Order the tailgater special and get enough to feed ten people. Best buy in Crystal River.

Ribs done old school no detectable rub, no foil wrap, just ribs with a gentle smoke flavoring with a good sweet and sassy sauce over the top. Ribs were moist, meaty, tender pulled clean off the bone without the rest of the meat coming along with the bite. Not under cooked, not over cooked, cooked perfectly. I had beans and... More

Big John's makes some of the best and most consistent real southern style BBQ. Although it is a small food trailer along US19, the location is great for folks from Crystal River, Hernando and Homosassa. The ribs are tender, meaty and fall-off-the-bone. The greens are according to true southern syle as are the green beans, which may be a little... More

We live in the area and do enjoy the BBQ.... The ribs are huge and chewy and also very meaty. There are... More

The ribs here are not the falling off the bone miniature baby back ribs you get in chain restaurants. These are man sized huge ribs and they are just tender, not cooked to nothing. So you do have to chew your food. I prefer meat with some texture. I guess maybe when I have no teeth I might feel differently.... More

My husband and I stopped for a quick sandwich while out shopping. Good BBQ but I prefer Cracker Boys. There are just a couple of picnic tables for seating. Seems like there is a lot of to go orders.

This is a small BBQ truck that sits off of US 19.....unfortunately the BBQ ribs were very disappointing...they were very tough, stringy and chewy....not the tender, falling off the bone type you would hope for....the sides were just okay....prices were good though - so its too bad the ribs were not very good..... - they need to improve the quality...
