BBQ and Turkey is very good. Don't bother with the brisket, tastes like boring Roast Beef, no smoke at all. Sides are good, especially the potato salad! Salads and baked potatoes come with good amount of meat.

I love the pulled pork and smoked chicken with white sauce. And yes the pie, especially peanut butter.

Excellent barbecued pork and chicken. Enjoy the large baked potatoes filled with BBQ chicken, cheese and drizzled with their signature white sauce.

When a tragedy occurs people bring Big Bob's to your house. When family comes to town the gathering is at Big Bob's. The out of town visitors take Big Bob's back home with them and further spread the gospel of white sauce. Good times or bad, this place makes everything better. Where do I start-- ribs, brisket, pork, turkey,brunswick stew,... More

BBG is one of my favorite barbecue restaurants anywhere! There isn't anything on the menu that is anything less than delicious! I lived in Memphis for almost 10 years and tried most every BBQ joint around & this rivals anything there! I would even put it on the same level as the original Corky's....and that's saying something! Enjoy!

National Championship BBQ. Love their BBQ potatoes. If you like southern hickory smoke BBQ this is the place to be.

This is hard to rate because the Chicken BBQ was great, some of the best ever. The white sauce is special. The BBQ pulled pork was good but not as good as their reputation makes it out to be.
