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... read more

The bbq is ok, not great for KC area bbq. But some of their other dishes are really good. The chicken fried chicken is pretty good, sometimes a bit too crispy.

The BBQ here does not even compare to BBQ you can get in Kansas City. It is average in taste and rather costly for what you get. It is family friendly with food choices for kids and the atmosphere is nice and comfortable but if you are looking for really good BBQ this is not the place to come to.

After reading the reviews and as first-time visitors to Lawrence, we were excited to get ourselves some good Kansas BBQ! Boy, were we disappointed! The onion rings that were recommended could have been delicious if they had been hot, the Margaritas were watered down and flavorless, the pork was dry and not at all fall-off-the-bone (also served warm, not hot)...

Some of the best ribs I have ever had at a restaurant. Different sauces to choose from. Friendly and nice staff. Very reasonable prices for food and drink. Very fun atmosphere. Happy to change the channel to put on a hockey game in Kansas. Will definitely go again the next time I am in town.

Went to Biggs with a large group for dinner and thoroughly enjoyed the meal. The pulled pork nachos appetizer came highly recommended and it was an excellent choice. The slow smoked brisket was tender, moist and had a lot of flavor. The service was very quick even for so many people.

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. They'll start you with a small plate of fries and introduce their three sauces, spicy, regular and sweet (my favorite.) A few appetizers to choose from like fried pickle spears and nachos, but...

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!
