Best Pork Ribs!

We've always enjoyed the best BBQ ribs and chicken from Big B's BBQ! The ribs are the most tender and tasty that one can find. It's primarily a take-out, as they only have several sit-down tables.

Great place for barbecue. Not a fan of the sides, but you can't miss on the ribs! Take out available. Not fancy, by any means, but just good, authentic barbecue.

Always great ribs, meaty and fall-off-the-bone. Friendly staff, prices a little higher than I'd like, but O.K.

Big B's BBQ is an off-shoot of Brian's Beer & Billiards which is a local hang-out for students from Cal-State Fullerton as well as sports fans all over Orange County. The BBQ storefront is right next door to the bar but has it's own entrance. First time I walked in I was suprised how small it was. It really is... More

I used to go here when I lived closer but hadn't been in a while. Went today for lunch. Sort of run down inside, but I still love their ribs and their homemade potatoe salad is to die for! Not your normal smoked ribs. I believe they boil them and then throw them on the fire when you order. I... More

Don't be fooled by the small storefront and limited seating... This is some of the best barbeque you will find in the OC. Big B's is a favorite "take-out" location of the locals, and a popular spot with students from Cal State Fullerton. While you are waiting for your order, (which is always prepared fresh), step next door for a... More
