Ribs are unbelievable!

Restaurant has character, not ambience 🙂 Many had take-out. Very popular and busy, but very quick service.

Small and cozy diner. Nothing fancy, but nice, clean, cheap and wonderful food. A quite simple menu card, but fine selection of beef, pork or chicken. And they can make rootbeer floats

If you are looking for delicious BBQ food, then this is the spot for you. The dining is simple, not a fancy dining place. The enticing smell drew us in. We plan to go back again! Staff is very friendly. Food came out quickly.

If you are looking for fine dining then this is not the place for you. However, if you love good honest BBQ food, don't mind sharing a table and using disposable plates and cutlery then this may be a winner for you. A word of warning, however, it is mighty busy so go early or be prepared to wait in... More

Food was OK, but they were really nice. We had a combo to try a mix of everything. I would go again.

Been here in the summer after finishing the Antelope Canyon Tour. We were lucky to spot this place as it was on the path towards the canyon. We passed by it in an open truck and I could smell the BBQ. Right there I knew where to go for lunch. Had the full rack of ribs, beans, potato salad and... More

Sat outside with everyone else, on either side of long tables. Service warm, friendly and efficient and food to die for. Great

We had to go back twice to actually get through the door, as the queue was so long the first night we were in Page. Be prepared to share a table, eat from disposable crockery and really enjoy a very tasty, meat-lovers feast! Not fine dining, but the place is packed out for good reason.
