Bar b q did not appear to be fresh at all! Bacon wrapped shrimp was good I would not go back if I travel again to Monroe. Waitress was friendly but did not appear to suggest the barbq which should have been a sign

Good menu nothing to fancy but everything tastes great. Good place to go for a family lunch and don't forget to check out the specials.

Rude staff. When my meal came it was not prepared like the menu said so I asked to have it corrected. Was given a very hard time about it. Manager did not even want to come to the table. I left with out even eating my meal. Then they still wanted me to pay for it. We will not be... More

My first review was for a visit in November 2014 and we really enjoyed our experience. We visited again the 2nd Saturday in December. Wow what a different experience. It was pretty awful. First of all they changed the menu and dramatically increased their prices. The waiter was very unfriendly and made us feel like he was doing us a... More

Definitely heading in the wrong direction to attract new and retain existing customers. We have been going to Big Blue for over two years and used to love it. Not anymore...the service was the worst I have had in many years. Slow... More

I reviewed this restaurant a while back and said how much I and my wife liked it, sadly that has changed a lot. We will no longer dine there. We were regulars for a long time and were on a first name basis with quite a few staff. They told us how much they liked working there. At that time... More

This was our first visit to BBR. We had heard great things but had also heard that it was going downhill. The husband had some great catering from BBR for his work so we thought we'd give it a try. We tried the ribs,prime rib and perch. Kids had chicken tenders and grilled cheese. Everything was really good especially for... More

We were in Monroe for a funeral and had to grab lunch. Service was good, sandwiches were great (Chicken BLT and Philly Cheese Steak). Fries were great. Thanks for the quick service!
