Great tasting barbeque

Had some brisket with beans and potatoe salad. It was delicious. The service was a little slow, but kept trying. The televisions were playing my favorite channels and kept me entertained. The plate was large, bring a friend and share it.

We have been getting food from Biggs about once a month for the last year because it is close to our home, then they started delivery so we have tried that 4 times. The food is mediocre,the employees are oftentimes surly,and delivery takes 45 minutes. After the last delivery we will try another barbecue place next time, with the added... More

Had a craving for Barbecue. Great pulled pork, 2 sauces (hot and mild), Burnt Ends were awful. We went twice while in town.

We have enjoyed this BBQ twice in the last two months and both time the food was amazing! The burnt ends were available on both trips and are now something I crave! The portions are big but you'll want to take the left overs with you because they are just as good the next day if not better! Friday night... More

During a recent trip to Kansas, we ate at Bigg's BBQ twice, thoroughly enjoying the baby back ribs, pulled pork, and "burnt ends." The meats are smoky and succulent, and they have three barbeque sauces of varying degrees of sweet to spicy. Personally, I enjoyed mixing all three sauces for a great flavor. The side dishes were excellent on our... 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.
