Surprising

I had passed this establishment several times and did not find the outside very pleasing. It "looked" dirty and questionable, more like a dive. Since there were several in our party I felt safe to go there. Not my usual dining experience and it was VERY informal with a self service type counter... read more

We ate dinner at Big D's BBQ and were mostly satisfied. The barbecue was pretty good. We had the pulled pork, ribs, hush puppies, corn nuggets, and fries. The pulled pork and ribs were good. The corn nuggets were ok, but most corn nuggets we've eaten had some sort of power sugar on them, these did not. The French fries... More

I'm not really a foodie I'm a Food and beverage professional with more than 20 years of experience in fine dining in several countries, I jus can tell you this is plain good BBQ just the way it meant to be, perfectly seasoned with that almost imperceptible southern hospitality, a kindness of nice simple people that trust me is impossible...

I can't recall that last time I wanted to tip more. I wanted to tip more! They were friendly, fast and the BBQ was very good. We had a party of 10 and we all got the lunch special. The food was delivered fast, hot and by the time we were done no food was left. That's a good sign,... More

My sister and I ate there for my birthday. The "Q" is very good, so are the sides especially the Mac and cheese.

The food is always good with a choice of BBQ style sauces. The portions are large so be really hungry or share! My husband and I like to order the full rack of ribs (enough for 3 or 4) and a couple of sides, like fried okra and potato salad (has a mystery spice in it that makes it especially... More
