Great food - so so service

Starting with the pail ful of peanuts, right through to the bottomless drinks, the food was great. 3 of us dined, all ordering different meals and all loved it! I ordered the sampler and everything was delicious (only compaint - it was too much food!). We arrived at lunch hour and by the time we... read more

My husband and I brought 40 high school students here while we were serving at a reservation in Arizona. We wanted to find a place that could serve all of us at once, have a set price per person, and provide some cultural entertainment. This restaurant did it all. They have group rates with a set menu making it easy... More

Being from Kansas City, we are a little picky on our BBQ. We thought the beef brisket was amazing! Just as good as anything we could get in KC. Our waiter Austin was super friendly and made the experience of Big John's even better! Would definitely check this place out if you are in Page!

Situated in an old gas station. Tables inside and out. Huge bbq smokers outside. Excellent bbq, coleslaw and beans. Definitely not out of cans, boxes or freezer. Super friendly staff. Best bbq since we left Florida!

This town caters to tourists and this restaurant is no exception; not sure where the 'locals' eat but probably not here. However, the bbq is actually really really good and for once in Page, we had excellent service! I would highly recommend for a family meal. We were there on a Saturday night and they have a band playing outside... More

The food here was awesome and quick. The pulled pork and pulled chicken sandwiches were cooked perfectly! The sauce on the table was really tasty, sweet and had little bite to it. The 1/2 rack of ribs fell off the bone. The beans were good a well

It doesn't look like much from the road, but with all those smokers out in front cooking barbecue, how could you not stop. It was as good of rib's as I've ever had. Skip the sauce and taste the real flavor of the meat. Order the 1/2 rack or you'll be hauling food home. Great service and cold draft beer.... More

Wow! Great food, and fun atmosphere. Gotta eat at Big Johns, while in Page. We loved the live music. All the food was great.

We've been here a few times on our trips to Page. We like the ribs but wish they had more choices for barbeque sauces. It is always crowded but efficient in serving so many people. We love the band in the summertime. As with all restaurants in Page it is a little pricey but worth a trip here.
