Wow. This BBQ is amazing. Smoky with a flavorful sauce and fall off the bone tenderness. This tiny operation might serve the best BBQ I've ever eaten. The fries with their ranch are outstanding and I ate everything on my plate. My only regret is...More

This has been my favorite burger for years! Even though I moved out of the area, I stop by every chance I get! The BBQ is excellent as well. Worth a visit!

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.

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...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...More
