The place is a little small during the Winter season when the outside is closed down. Not a bad wait on a Saturday evening. We waited about 10 mins for a table for two. BBQ and the sides were good. A nice place to eat. Friendly and helpful staff. We would eat here again. Plenty of locals eating here as... More

Good BBQ food. Make sure to get the sampler plate best value and variety for the amount of food you get. They smoke a certain amount of meat over night, when they run out, they will turn people away. So get there well before closing time. Best asset is the Friendly attentive staff! They made our entire party of 14... More

After driving 400 miles, I was ready for a good lunch. Big John's had a menu for the light eater and the hearty eater. I got the brisket and pork ribs (with intentions to take some home, and I did) with baked beans and slaw. Ribs were fall off the bone, so good. Next time, I would opt for a... More

We didn't have to wait and were seated right away. Free shelled peanuts at the table. Ordered the BBQ pork sandwich and it was very tasty. Good portion for the price. My sandwich did fall apart and I had to use a fork to eat the last 1/4 of it but I didn't really mind. My husband got the brisket... More

Loved the food here! I've never had better!Best brisket and ribs I've ever had. The smokers outside drew us in. We knew it would be authentic. It was chilly when we visited so the outside seating was unusable but we shared a table with another couple which made it really nice. Cute Texas BBQ decor. The ribs were fall off... More

When we arrived there was a rather long waiting queue, but everybody in front wanted to sit outside so we passed and just went inside. It's an authentic place, the staff is obliging and very friendly. We had beef brisket and pulled pork, it was just fantastic. A clear recommendation to go there.

Had dinner here early Feb. Great little location, Saw good review on yelp so decided to give it a try. Had the sample plate and nachos, good portion, sauce was pretty good. Not too pricey since there were lack of quality option in the area. Casual atmosphere and free peanuts. Even tired a scope of their ice cream on the... More

I think my title says it all but seriously. The bbq pits are right out front so you smell the natural slow cooking smells. I strongly recommend getting the sampler for $16. You will not be disappointed. Service was super friendly and really welcoming! This is an absolute must try!

Very good BBQ. The beans were over seasoned. Potato salad was good but I don't believe homemade. Service was good and atmosphere was neat. I was still hungry when we were done and it was slightly overpriced. No lunch specials.

My wife and I were the first customers after Big John's reopened on Feb 1st. They had been closed since before the holidays for remodeling. We found the atmosphere, food, and service all excellent. There's ample seating inside and out. Bucket of shelled peanuts are on each table for those looking to nosh on something prior to your meal arriving.... More

Big John's Texas BBQ is a family owned barbeque joint who brings a BIG taste of Texas to Arizona. We slow smoke our meats on wood for hours... You DO NOT need a reservation, just come on down!
