Enjoyed the ribs and the beef brisket. Really did not need the sauce the flavor of the meat is that good. Adding the sauce just enhanced the experience. Tried the white sauce, sweet sauce, and hot sauce with the ribs just to enjoy the flavor differences. Service was courteous and fast. The room was crowded at lunch but you could... More

Great BBQ served as a sandwich, on a salad, a stuffed potato, or as a plate lunch with sides. Desserts are great too.

It doesn't matter if you want, BBQ pork, chicken, ribs or brunswick stew this is the place to go. Leave a little early to avoid the rush. It's always busy. If you don't want get dressed to go in, you'll get the same great food and service thru the drive thru.

Was heading down to Gulf Shores from Wisconsin and had to stop here for dinner. I had the combo plate and my wife and kids had the loaded potatoes. The brisket was tender and the ribs were Smokey with just enough pull. The Mac and cheese is out of this world. If you order pulled pork try the white sauce!... More

Expected delicious pork and sides. Pork seemed dry. Greens were so salty, I could not eat. And THE ROLLS... Hush puppies would be so much better than the raw rolls. They were barely warm...very doughy! We have been to Big Bob's many times. Food is normally very good and tasty. The rolls have always been barely warm.

Good food, good service and good prices. The only bad thing was not enough pork on the stuffed potato.
