I eat lunch here about once a week and the food is always top notch. The ribs are my favorite and they have the best bread pudding that you can find anywhere.

I really like this place. Cafeteria style to order food...really good food. Try the Hoss burger if you can. A little pricey but worth it.

We went with another couple to this restaurant based on their recommendation this weekend. The helpings were excellent, the beef brisket was very tender and the onion rings were very tasty. One in our party got the stuffed baked potato - talk about a generous portion!!

We had chopped beef sandwiches and onion rings. The beef was actually chopped, not shredded, tender, and flavorful. The sauce was delicious. My husband thought the onion rings were the best. We'll go back even though it's a bit of a drive.

I visited while in town on business. It was recommended by a colleague. I got the three meat plate and expected the normal portions. I was wrong. The portions were insane. I couldn't eat most of it. The meats were amazing and the sides were really good too. I also got a brownie that ended up back at the hotel.... More

Big Horn is one of the nicer restaurants to visit in terms of decor and fun. Though its partnered with a gas station, you'd never know it when inside. The bbq is good. (I enjoy the ribs). Sides are really good, too. Their sauce is tangy and delicious and it's perfect place for dipping jalapeño bread! A little on the... More

So good!! Wanted to go back but didn't have the time. The brisket was amazing, so tender and flavorful! The ribs were good too. They were out of the chicken.

You get what you pay for when you go to Moe's barbecue places in this one is no exception. The prices were not outrageous but the food was not outrageously awesome either. I'm a big judge on brisket and was not impressed due to the lack of flavor and tenderness. The rest of the barbecue was good but not awesome... More

Must have one of the Big Horn salads...Prices are a little high but two people can share this salad. BBQ is very good. Staff is very friendly.
