“Go early..They sell out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

This place is not meant for large groups. We had a party of 9 and got there about 5:30 for dinner.. The waitress said brisket is all gone we sold out at lunch.. We tried the fish tacos, pulled pork, ribs, prime rib sandwich, pasta salad, cole slaw, beans, mac & cheese. It took a while for our order to come out(30+ minutes) but it was worth the wait..My nephew had raved about their pulled pork..it was good but the ribs were better but the best was the smoked prime rib sandwich and the cole slaw.
Good thing we went a bit early.. When we left the sign said " sold out of everything"

“I love to roof deck! Food is great, even if you don't like bbq!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

This is not your typical BBQ place. The food is awesome and the ambience is over the top now that they have a brand new deck. It was my 2nd trip to Big Hole BBQ. When I asked my husband to meet me for lunch in a rare day when he didn't have to work in Jackson.
I had been there one week previously after a gym work out. The food was excellent and the beer was cold.
It was hot, but we loved our food. I sat on the deck. My only complaint was that one waitress worked her butt off but it wasn't ours lol. She finally helped us get our bill and water.
When we asked our waitress (on the deck) if we could have water she laughed and nodded towards a nearby server table where we should have (shame on us) known this was available. The same attitude came up when we asked for silverware. Gosh. Sorry - we were off to get It on our own. We also left, leaving our check w/ 15% tip (shame on me but I would feel bad leaving anything less) on the deck for her to get back.
This would have been 5 stars but on a slow hot day, sorry you opened the deck, but if your 17 yo waitress is not up to task, perhaps rethink your staff.
Your food is excellent. We love it. Thank you - just don't come here if you are in a hurry because you might get the wrong server.

“Approved by Southerners”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We were very worried trying out BBQ here especially since most people call just cooking out or grilling burgers as a BBQ. Pulled pork and Brisket are super, great chunks of meat not full of fat. the slaw is fresh and very good.

“Highly Recommend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

We arrived about 7:00pm, & seated immediately. Order was taken quickly but took 45 minutes, and not advised there would be a delay. Had we been told, we might have ordered & returned 30 minutes later. The wait was well worth it. We shared a combo plate. The menu did say there would be a $2 charge for an extra plate, we intended to ask only for an extra fork. Our server brought the extra plate & did not charge us. They were compensating for our long wait which was a nice gesture. The two servers were very pleasant and constantly moving. The ribs and pulled pork were probably the most tender ever having had. The cold slaw was great. Fresh and crispy. The beans were a bit on the spicy side but tasty. In all fairness,it was a Fri night there was an event in town along with lots of takeout orders. Will definitely go again, when in town. Eating area on the small side, would not recommend for a large group.

“A Place So Nice We Ate There Twice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

We dined twice here in our Yellowstone/Idaho Falls travels and both times it was really good. It is right off of a major highway so you can't miss it. What I really liked were the rooftop deck dining or the patio options. The food is good and the portions are huge. Idaho knows how to take care of its customers. Thanks and yum!
