Best brisket and ribs I have had in years. Fast, friendly service and a great ambiance. The live country music was very fun.

Found this on trip advisor. Parking is difficult but we parked on the road. The place has an outside that looks like it's under an old gas station awning. They have a couple of smokers outside that bellow out bbq smells. We sat inside because of this. The food though is superb. We had a sampler which was well worth... More

Sit outside to enjoy the band, bask in the aroma from the smoker, relax, and enjoy an adult beverage. The staff treated us very well.

We had a great meal here and a fun time listening to the band outdoors. The pulled pork, brisket and ribs that fell of the bone were delicious. No bbq sauce was needed. Prices were very reasonable and portions were big. They put buckets of peanuts on the table, so if you have an allergy you should not go. Tables... More

We stopped here after a long trip to Antelope Canyon. This was delicious bbq! Everyone was polite, for was amazing. I loved all the eclectic art especially the barbed wire on the state of Texas – it was great. We ate inside because it was hot but there is a great seating area outside.

Excellent food! If you don't want to wait for the lineup, just enter form the side door and sit inside. If you want the whole experience, then sit outside, you'll get live music and meet people as you eat at the tables.

Pulled pork & brisket were excellent and ribs were really tasty but a bit fatty. The baked beans were yummy and the coleslaw was the best I've ever tasted. Aside from the fatty ribs, our only complaint was that they only offer one type of bbq sauce. I love a vinegar based sauce and they only had a sweet one... More

The restaurant has a great atmosphere with live music and a smoker right outside the restaurant. The food was nice but not as good as we thought it would be. On top of that the food was quite expensive in a relation of what you get. I would still recommend going there because it defiantly is an experience.

One of the most popular tourist restaurants in the small town of Page. Authentic smoked bbq. I recommend the pulled pork! The sides were good as well- I had the baked beans and potato salad. It is a "no thrills" atmosphere, down to the disposable plates and paper towel rolls on each table. Table was dirty when we were seated.... More

They have a BBQ smoker right outside the restaurant that you can smell from far away. Their meat is very good and quite affordable. I would really recommend it for a quick meal. The only negative point was the not-so-good music band. Very noisy.

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!
