Biggs is a BIG hit with us!

With three locations to choose from in Lawrence, this BBQ restaurant great service and lots of options for good barbeque without having to drive to Kansas City.

We ate here during a trip to Lawrence to visit KU. The food was really good & prices were reasonable. They have several sauces to choose from at the table. Staff was very friendly. Root beer float was good too!

Relatively new barbecue spot in downtown Lawrence. If you are looking for barbecue and a variety of sauces with friendly service and good prices, this is the place. Go and enjoy!

Ate a buffet style meal for a friends 50th birthday here, and it was a very tasty meal! The 2 meats that they had were the brisket and pulled pork, along with baked beans, cole slaw, fries, and pickles. Pros: Pulled pork sandwich was delicious, especially liked the hot bbq sauce with it! It had just the right amount of... More

The brisket, cut too thick, tasted like dry pot roast. The pulled pork was devoid of flavor. We made a meal of the sides. If you go here don't order the meat, just the sides, which are passable. This should be a vegetarian barbecue joint, but we just read that the salads suck too, so walk on by, head down... More

This is the second time we have eaten here in the last couple years when visiting Lawrence. We always seek out BBQ places when we travel to compare. This is the best in town by all accounts. The burnt ends and baby back ribs were excellent and the beer nice and cold--a local brew. Friendly staff as well. Would recommend.... More

Went with friends we visited Lawrence when we traveled out from Colorado. Had brisket, potato salad, bbq beans and coleslaw. Came casual style in a basket lined with paper if I remember correctly. Some in our party had pulled pork sandwiches. Coleslaw was a step up from a lot of BBQ joints. I would not hesitate to go back.

Both of us ordered combination plates where we chose which meats we wanted. We ended up choosing the same meats - pulled pork, brisket, and burnt ends. They had quite a few sides to choose from. We didn't choose beans as a side because we've had some bad tasting beans at some places, and since we didn't remember these standing... More

i got the bottomless ribs and it was pretty much all fat. the beer was reasonably priced and the friend pickles were pretty spot on though. im sure ill end up giving this place another shot, but i was not impressed with my first visit.
