The special was a half / full slab of ribs but the ribs were overdone. The burnt ends were expensive compared to other selections on the menu and very fatty in the center. I have to agree with other reviewers, the baked beans were excellent.

Cant miss at Biggs - anything you want, they have. And you have to try the side of barbeque beans - there is more meat that beans - could be a meal in itself. Great place before / during / after any Jayhawks game. Also opened a new Biggs downtown on Mass. and have a burger location in town as... More

Stopped here for lunch while out camping at Clinton State Park. Had a hamburger (usually get ribs) and was certainly not disappointed. Great meat prepared perfectly and served by a friendly and knowledgeable waitress. The spicy cole slaw is wonderful! This is a must stop and eat for anyone visiting the area.

We recently took some friends who just moved to the area to Bigg's restaurant and were very disappointed. I got two sets of dirty silverware before finally getting a clean set of silverware from the server. The salads that we ordered with grilled chicken or salmon consisted of a piece of grilled chicken or salmon laid on what seem to... More

Try delivery or takeout as a yummy savory alternative to pizza. Always just the right smoke and balance with their meats. Tender burnt ends great turkey and of course juicy pulled pork. Sides are fun and creative like fried corn or broccoli salad. I am addicted to true pulled pork tacos

I live out of town and had to provide a dish for tailgate. Called and ordered two (2) large containers of Mac and Cheese. It was hot, delivered promptly but didn't realize that it was supposed to be $24 per container. I paid $60+ also, it was bland. Not enough cheesy for everyone's liking. Will def try the restaurant again... More

Don't pass this place up if you like Barbeque!! Fantastic! Everything is great but I especially love the pulled pork and cole slaw. There isn't anything I don't like here! The place looks small from the outside but don't be fooled, plenty of room inside.

Taking the oldest son out to celebrate a promotion of sorts we told him it was 'his pic' today for the meal *fingers crossed* ...you never know where we might end up ;) He chose Biggs BBQ - we were pleased since this is a place we hadn't visited before and BBQ sounded good to us as well.

Every time I think of Biggs, I think of the free fries they serve before your meal to test the BBQ sauces. I'm all about spice, and I wasn't really impressed with the spice level of their self proclaimed spicy barbecue sauce. Other than that, all of the food there is wonderful along with the service. After five years of... More

Next to the KU campus in Lawrence is a BBQ joint called Biggs. Down home feel, staff very welcoming. Started wit fried pickle spears which were crispy, vinegary and hot. St Louis and baby back ribs were smoked and served dry, add your own sauce, of which there are 3, the KC style tasted the best. Sides served were cole... More
