We first saw Big John's during a trip to Antelope Canyon, it was dinner time and the place was packed so we went to a really bad Indian Asian place down the street. The second trip we had lunch here and it was very good. They give generous portions of meat, very tender and flavorful. So we made reservations for... More

We wanted a place that had good BBQ, and we found one in Page, AZ. I had nacho's with pulled pork, cheese, sauce, etc. that was delicious. We casually ate outside at picnic tables. There was inside seating for inclement weather or for those that didn't want to eat outside. The reasonably priced menu was extensive with pulled pork, chicken,... More

We were in Page for a tour of Antelope Canyon and were looking for a place to eat lunch. Being from Texas, I was skeptical until we parked in a parking spot that had a sign saying "Reserved for aTexas Aggie" though we graduated from Texas Tech, we parked there anyway. I had the baby back ribs. They were tender... More

The pulled pork sandwich, it was alright. The meat was a little dry and had excessive quantity of fat in the serving that was provided. The ribs were really good. Tender, moist and full of flavor. The sides in my opinion had a bit to be desired, they were a little heavy handed on black pepper. The service was efficient... More

Drove into Page and past this place heading for our hotel. We noticed how busy it was and smelled the aroma of the two large smokers at work. After checking in we headed back to give it a try. It is an old gas station converted into a restaurant. We sat outside on one of the many long picnic style... More

Stayed over in Page on our tour through National Parks with Archers Cosmos (excellent tour). Drawn to this place by the lively atmosphere, outdoor seating on a warm night, decent food and good music. A little rough and ready but a overall a happy night out in what would otherwise have been a quiet stay over.

Food was only OK, service was only OK. Prices were pretty high considering you ate off paper plates, and drank from plastic cups. Wouldn't go back there.

We drove by this place and decided to stop for dinner. Not being familiar with the place, we walked into the brightly lit small restaurant and ate there. Very good BBQ (from two huge smokers outside) sampler plate with brisket, pulled pork, ribs, a hot link, coleslaw, beans and bread - would have been enough for 2 modest appetites. Bucket... More
