We love good BBQ so we went to Big John's and were not disappointed. There was a large crowd there - a good indication if there are lots of locals eating at a place. We ate outside, the waitress was helpful and pleasant. My wife had ribs and I had pulled pork. There were both very good. We were glad... More

I have been here many times but brought some of my friends here for dinner. We sat outside and listened to the country/rock group. Most of us had the sampler plate which has pulled pork, sausage, ribs, beans and coleslaw. The BBQ is worth every dime. Very good and tasty. For desert, we all had coblers with ice-cream. I highly...

Coleslaw was good... Had the sampler and the meat was tender but taste of lighter fuel. Not a place I would ever go again or recommend to anyone.

Thank you for stopping by our restaurant. Every once in a great while a customer will describe the BBQ as tasting like lighter fluid. We do not use any form of lighter fluid whatsoever. We ONLY use oak wood to slow smoke the BBQ. The taste you're referring to is the smoke flavor in the meat itself. Smoked meat has... More

We stayed 3 nights in Page. Twice we went to Big John's. Food was so good. We had pulled pork sandwiches and ribs. The beans and coleslaw was homemade and very good too. The service was absolutely great so fast that you had the feeling you think of it and they already bring it. Absolutely recommend this reastaurant.

My wife is a Texan and she found this very nostalgic. Great sausage, ribs, brisket and beans! I really liked the coleslaw. Rows of picnic tables; country band playing (they were pretty good); smokers going outside with briskets and ribs going in and out - whole area smelled like BBQ! Had large root beer float for desert - big enough... More

I had the baby back ribs, they were very tender and tasty. The coleslaw was very good as well. The service was not that great but there are many people sitting on benches and the waitresses are busy so they tend to forget requests. Overall I recommend this restaurant .

This review is based upon a limited sampling of their fare, as we both had the pulled pork sandwich for lunch. We sat outside under the canopy that used to shelter drivers while filling their tanks with gas (this property used to be an Exxon Station, and they have done a great job in turning it into a restaurant with...

Our tour guide recommended. Very good ribs. Crowded place, everyone heard it was good but we got seated quickly. Inside and outside seating.

Great BBQ place. Very casual. Pulled port, ribs and the corn on the cob were fantastic! We ate there three nights in a row. The place to eat in Page. Ate outside on the common picnic tables and met some great people. Country music band plays later at night. Loud, but fun.
