Great BBQ!

Nice family restaurant, down home goodness. Buckets of peanuts for you, nothing fancy just good home cooking, a little pricey though. We had the chicken nachos and the sampler platter perfect for two hungry adults.

I got the BBQ chicken which was like $9 for just a sandwich & was not "pull apart" as advertised. It was chunks of chicken, then you add sauce yourself. I would have just got the pork. My friend said the pork BBQ was good (is pork BBQ ever not good?). Our server was a little off, but everything turned... More

My husband and I loved the picnic atmosphere and the delicious barbeque. The pulled pork and barbeque ribs were so tender! Guy Fieri from Food Network should try this restaurant out and so should you!

Stopping through Page on Memorial Day, we spotted a crowded parking lot, and when the aroma of BBQ hit us, we decided to eat our first meal of the day here (at about 2 p.m., after a long morning of driving). Found the only open table indoors (it threatened rain, so we didn't want to sit outside, and it ended... More

The whole experience was great! Even though the place was packed inside and out, we (a family of 5) was seated immediately. Our order was taken within 5 minutes, after the drinks had been taken and delivered. Our entire order of food came out in maybe 5 to 10 minutes after we ordered. The pork ribs are ridiculous! I've eaten... More

We loved this restaurant. BBQ was great, corn bread delicious, service was quick. They had an outdoor band going by the time we left. Would definitely return

When we arrived it was very busy, but we were greeted and seated quickly. The wait staff were very friendly and efficient. AND the food was delicious and reasonably priced. Would recommend it.

We were recommended to go to Big Johns Texas BBQ, and it was the best dining experience of our roadtrip so far! It was so much fun with the live band and sitting outside. The meal was great, as well as service and prices. Highly recommend!

How could any meat eating person ignore the smell from the huge BBQ ovens and smokers outside this place? We just HAD to go in. It was raining on the evening we visited, so nobody was sat outside, it took ten minutes to seat us (we were warned and kept fully updated by the person behind the counter) and the... More

On a road trip, we decided to stay the night in Page and driving by this location, I saw there was quite a few customers at the restaurant. After checking into our hotel room, we drove back over here for dinner. For the menu priced items, we thought we would get some good size portions, not child sized. A small... More
