Outdoor seating, fun atmosphere. Huge smokers out front put out delicious smells! limited selection of beers or wine but if you like that smoky flavored meat, you will have a good time here. I preferred the brisket to the ribs but both good.

We came across Big John's by chance but really enjoyed it. The food was delicious (pulled pork sandwich and the sample plate). It's excellent bbq - tender and with great sauce. There was also a band playing, which was a lot of fun. Great place for a fun evening with friends or family.

If you're looking for BBQ in Page, this is THE place. Down-home Texas-style BBQ with large portions and great flavor. The pulled pork was terrific as were the ribs. As they say, they "Don't Mess with Texas" here. It's the real deal in an authentic country atmosphere.

We have some great bbq at home nd his is some of the best we have had! As others said, the smell from the smoker outside makes your mouth water! We had the sampler. Wonderful. Great nice service. A winner (and great music!)

We were created by a friendly staff and our waitress was great. If you are really hungry I recommend the sampler plate, not so much, the smoked sausage plate. . The sides were good, especially the baked beans with a kick. Perfect end to a day of traveling.

I was looking for quite a while to try a real american BBQ as we don't have anything like that here in Italy so I've decided to go for the Big John's Texas BBQ during a one night stay in Page, AZ and I must say this was one of the best meal-related choices I've ever made. The place is... More
