We always try to visit Biggs when we are in town. The ribs were amazing this trip. They do get busy but it is worth the wait!

We just moved to Lawrence from Kansas City and I was a little worried about BBQ choices but Bigg's is excellent. The burnt ends and hot links were a standout for me...excellent service too...they bring you out a small plate of fries so you can try all three of their sauces...really cool.

We have eaten at Bigg's many times. No complaints. Actually hired them to cater my son's wedding. Outstanding catering service.

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.
