The authentic west-style tavern, meat cousin, very tasty and not expensive. Want to put your attention - this is not restaurant-level place, simple cafe with outdoor tables, so service and cleaning are, let's tell, moderate. And it is not the quiet place, rather noisy. Suitable for family.

Great place for lunch or diner. You have free real and very good peanuts. The meat cooked at the BBQ is excellent. The service is nice and friendly. We celebrate the 6 years birthday of my daughter and it was a great moment that she will remember. For us who are European it was a nice moment and being with... More

Very tasty BBQ, vetted by the Texans with us. The food was quite good, the price felt a bit high, as with so many places in a small town. The service was quite good one visit and quite slow the other. I imagine it is variable with the staff and the demand.

After driving for ever we arrived in this beautiful town and found this wonderful restaurant. It came as a recommendation by our hotel. It was a busy night as we waited patiently we were not disappointed. I had the ribs which were great. The others got the pulled pork and ribs. The most enjoyable was the cole slaw. It was... More

This was really good BBQ. When you drive into town you can't miss it. The homemade bbq sauce is very tasty and the brisket, ribs and pulled pork were tender and juicy. We had a long drive that day and this was a great place to stop and enjoy a later lunch. Really great coleslaw. Portions were a good size,... More

A friend and I arrived in Page at about 8pm from a long day of driving when we saw Big John's Texas BBQ. The staff were friendly, explained the food choices to us and then served us great BBQ. The homemade BBQ sauce is wonderful - definitely don't use the brand name hot sauces.

I was looking for a good hearty lunch after my tour at Antelope Canyon and found this place. The big sign says it all Texas BBQ, good Texas BBQ! They have several things on their menu, but I recommend their Baby Back ribs with beans and a really good Cole Slaw. I believe it was order number 8 on their... More

We heard a rave review of this place from the front desk of our hotel. I ordered the pulled pork Ceaser salad. The pulled pork on my salad was among the worst I have ever eaten. My sister and her beau had brisket. His was on a sandwich and was bland but at least edible. My sister's was on a... More

We first saw Big John's during a trip to Antelope Canyon, it was dinner time and the place was packed so we went to a really bad Indian Asian place down the street. The second trip we had lunch here and it was very good. They give generous portions of meat, very tender and flavorful. So we made reservations for... More

We wanted a place that had good BBQ, and we found one in Page, AZ. I had nacho's with pulled pork, cheese, sauce, etc. that was delicious. We casually ate outside at picnic tables. There was inside seating for inclement weather or for those that didn't want to eat outside. The reasonably priced menu was extensive with pulled pork, chicken,... More
