This is an old gas station turned into a BBQ restaurant. The menu is fairly limited but the BBQ is good. You can either sit outside (hot) or inside. They even offer live music outside. All in all, food is good. Price is reasonable.

My family ate dinner here after a river raft ride down the Colorado River. We chose this place because it was across the street from our hotel and because it smelled So Good! We ate outside on picnic benches to enjoy the breeze and sunset. Service was quick and attentive... Food was mighty tasty!

I went there because it was across the street of the hotel, but I will not go back. There is nothing positive I can say about the food, the quality and the atmosphere. The live country music was nice.

Smoked food (pork, chicken, beef) and have no issues with being served on plastic dish, using plastic cutler etc. this is the place to go. The food is really tasty and good, would be nicer if they chose not throw away dishes. Diminishes the feeling of eating out.

In America, most BBQ places you will go to will serve their BBQ on some kind of paper, it is a tradition and an authentic part of the BBQ experience. In most Texas BBQ places, you will receive your BBQ on butcher paper only. We hope our customers are able to enjoy the experience of a "real BBQ joint" and... More

We were drawn in by the smell as we drove by. Claims to be Texas BBQ. Inside is decorated with lots of cute Texas items. Frozen lemonade was refreshing! Country music track was fun. Service was quick. They were preparing for live entertainment on outdoor patio, but we were tired and left before it started. BBQ comes without sauce...you add... More

I love smoked BBQ. In fact, after many business trips into Texas, I even learned how to slow smoke my own! So you can imagine our surprise when my wife and I bit into the ribs and brisket here at Big John's. This is Arizona, but it sure tastes like Texas! We even ordered more to take back to Zion... More

WOW!! Rarely do I feel compelled to hug the chef and rave about food but this... this is the real deal. I had pork ribs that melted off the bone and had such a fine smoked crust, you could hear me making yummy sounds all the way to Dallas. Husband had the brisket sandwich, which is also a great choice.... More

They were friendly and attentive which is why this place gets the higher mark. However, I expected much more from the hype. The ribs were very dry (I don't recommend ordering them) however the brisket was ok and the pulled chicken wasn't too bad either. The coleslaw was my favorite part. I liked the vinegar tasting coleslaw instead of the... More

We both agreed that if you have good food and excellent service it doesn't matter what the venue is like, the crowds will pour in.
