The best BBQ in the US

We (6) have been travelling for 4 States during 20 days in August. We saw this restaurant just in front of our hotel, and attracted by the good smell, we decided to spend our only night there. We were rewarded, fantastic food, good music (the owner plays, too), and a so familiar atmosphere. It... read more

I had mixed feelings walking in to this place, as I'm always nervous about claims of Texas BBQ made by locations outside that state. But the smokers were out front, fired up, and good smells were emanating from them, so I followed my nose into the place. I ordered the brisket sandwich, with cowboy beans and potato salad. The food... More

This is a very down to earth BBQ joint. Everything served on disposable plates, which is just fine. It was nice to have peanuts to shell as we waited for our food -- which didn't take long. I had the 1/2 rack of ribs with slaw and my husband had the sampler plate. We both found the meat lacking in... More

We went here twice while in Page which was our base while travelling around in the area. We tried Mexican and pub type places also but they were standard formula fast order places that you can find in any town across America and Canada. Big John's had more atmosphere and a simple menu. Good BBQ and nice sides. No dressing... More

Ordered for pickup. It was ready when we got there. Ordered the sampler plate, brisket sandwich and pulled pork sandwich with ribs. All the meat was very good. Cole slaw was good but didn"t care for the potato salad! The cowboy beans were real spicy but good. The corn bread muffins were way good. Lots of great food!!!!

The food here is unreal. Got the sampler which included brisket, ribs, sausage and cole slaw. Some of the best food I've ever eaten.

As this place had good reviews on TripAdvisor and as it was only down the street from our hotel we decided to try it out. It was a cold December evening and wasn’t at all busy but the waitress didn’t appear to be too bothered about us as we were obviously only passing through and she seemed to have already... More

Freshly smoked brisket, ribs, pulled pork and other traditional American BBQ standbys. Nothing fancy, but then again, who wants a fancy BBQ joint??? Fast, friendly service, and a casual, family environment. If it's a nice day, opt to sit outside at the picnic tables. When you're craving BBQ comfort food, in the middle of the desert of all places, Big... More

Long John’s Texas BBQ is an open-space restaurant offering pulled-chicken, pulled-pork, big sausages and other smoked meat dishes, in the spirit of Wild West cuisine and hospitality. The huge meat-smoking tanks are right in front of the place and the smell is tempting, of course, if you like smoked stuff. Cooked beans are the most common side being served and... More
