We used to eat here when it was called Big Oak BBQ, and have been back a few times now that it is caled 4-Trees. Food is great, portions are large, price is very reasonable. The one issue that we used to have with this...place was the service, and the service now is very good each time we've been back. We've always done carry-out, and food is prepared quickly and with a smile. We'll be back.More

Big Oak BBQ changed their name to 4 Trees a few months ago and we gave them another try. It used to be one of our favorites stops, but went downhill for awhile (mostly poor service). But when they changed their name we gave it...another shot and we were pleasantly surprised. The service was very friendly, the food was tasty and good portions, and the price reasonable. The much-improved quality will bring us back.More

You will not find nicer owners or better BBQ anywhere else in Clay County!!!! It is a smaller place, but they do have some outside seating. I frequent this place several times a month and they also catered my daughters wedding and several other events...I have had over the past few years. The smoked turkey is the best!!!!! Sauces are homemade, cole slaw is fantastic, and the mac and cheese tops it off.More

This person has never been in my restaurant. I know him personally and he is bitter that he was not ask to do a catering for the church we both attended.

I am a connoisseur of BBQ, as any Southern Gentlemen can say, and have been for decades. I’ve enjoyed it from Texas to Iraq. (BBQ Beef T-Rations aren’t bad at all. I was just as surprised as you can imagine!). That said, none of it...holds a candle to our local place. Chefs salad with your choice of meat, two meat combo dinners, whatever you like, you won’t be disappointed. Let me revise that. You might be disappointed if they have already run out of turkey. You will DEFINITELY be disappointed if you don’t live close enough to make this a regular dinner spot. That’s all I’ve got to say about that. - F. Gump.More

This is the best. Get there early (before they run out of things). I've never had anything bad here.

Big Oak has very good pulled,the best cole slaw I've had in a long time. The owner is very hands on and comes by your table to be sure you're satisfied with everything. Would definitely recommend.

It may look like a small, “hole in the wall” BBQ joint, but this little place is busting with character and great food! Dine in, or order online, you won’t be disappointed. We love it all: brisket, shredded pork, stumps, coleslaw, onion rings, etc. Check...them out!!More

The food was good. I had pulled pork and I really enjoyed it. They give you a very generous portion and the staff was excellent and very friendly. You order at the counter and then take a seat. They bring the food to you. Note:...2 meats on the menu means two different meats and a rib dinner is only 4 ribs. They do need more variety in their sauses. I will go back.More
