Came to watch a Kansas game and the wife & I wanted to taste a bit of BBQ. Picked this place after judging a few by view. Ordered a slab if St. Louis ribs that were fall of the bone good with or without sauce. Also they give you complimentary French Fries, which stills my heart, however their sides was... More

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
