I typically don't think of a BBQ place when I want Chicken Fried Steak, but I'm so glad that I ordered it 'anyway'! It was great, and so was the gravy! I also was able to taste the Brisket (I think I'll order that next time!) I'm putting Biggs on my list of "go back SOON!''

Outstanding and great establishment. TV everywhere so you can watch your games. Upstairs seating and bar seating. Me and spouse ordered Rib special with two meats. We each had the different ribs baby back, spare ribs, brisket, burnt ends (yummy), okra and bake beans (very good) and a lot of food and we were impressed. There are 3 different sauces... More

A great place for Kansas City/St. Louis BBQ. Food was tasty and BBQ was well smoked. They have three types of Bar-be-que sauce and give you some fries to try them out with... The spicy was "northern" spicy (it would make a northerner cry and a southerner laugh).. They had a "Bar Be Que" Pizza which I thought the bread... More

Bigg's is an interesting optical illusion. From the outside, it looks like any other basic older strip mall restaurant, nothing special. But once you go inside...wow! The place is huge, even has an upstairs. I liken it to the Tardis from Dr. Who..hahahaha. The inside décor is definitely a sports bar style with many autographed pictures on the wall of... More

We went to Bigg's last night for the first time. I have been in mourning since Famous Dave's closed but now I don't know why. These guys have great ribs (lean and meaty) and lots of sides to choose from! We will definitely go again.

This is some of the best bbq I've had! The baked beans and corn bread were terrific too. The serving sizes are huge. My daughter's pulled pork sandwich could have fed three people. I ordered the two meat platter and could only eat half of it. Three choices of sauces too. We will go back when we are in town... More

We've been on the road traveling for over two weeks. And this is far and away the best dinner we've ever had. Every single item was absolutely perfection, from the burnt ends to the ribs to the smoked ham. Everything was phenomenal. Even the sides were better than anything we've ever had. Especially the loaded baked potato salad. Make it... More

This place knows BBQ. Their meat is so good that the sauce only adds to the flavor. For me it is the best BBQ in Kansas!
