We stopped on our way out of town for a second helping of Big John's. This is a full service out-door restaurant (under a roof) that often has music in the evenings. The BBQ and fixings were great. the portions large, and served in a perfect container to enjoy for another meal.

If i apply the test of dreaming of having eaten great food, i really can't recall the taste here. That should suffice for this review.

The authentic west-style tavern, meat cousin, very tasty and not expensive. Want to put your attention - this is not restaurant-level place, simple cafe with outdoor tables, so service and cleaning are, let's tell, moderate. And it is not the quiet place, rather noisy. Suitable for family.

Great place for lunch or diner. You have free real and very good peanuts. The meat cooked at the BBQ is excellent. The service is nice and friendly. We celebrate the 6 years birthday of my daughter and it was a great moment that she will remember. For us who are European it was a nice moment and being with... More

Very tasty BBQ, vetted by the Texans with us. The food was quite good, the price felt a bit high, as with so many places in a small town. The service was quite good one visit and quite slow the other. I imagine it is variable with the staff and the demand.

This was really good BBQ. When you drive into town you can't miss it. The homemade bbq sauce is very tasty and the brisket, ribs and pulled pork were tender and juicy. We had a long drive that day and this was a great place to stop and enjoy a later lunch. Really great coleslaw. Portions were a good size,... More

A friend and I arrived in Page at about 8pm from a long day of driving when we saw Big John's Texas BBQ. The staff were friendly, explained the food choices to us and then served us great BBQ. The homemade BBQ sauce is wonderful - definitely don't use the brand name hot sauces.

I was looking for a good hearty lunch after my tour at Antelope Canyon and found this place. The big sign says it all Texas BBQ, good Texas BBQ! They have several things on their menu, but I recommend their Baby Back ribs with beans and a really good Cole Slaw. I believe it was order number 8 on their... More
