I'm originally from Texas and don't have good BBQ where I live now so it was a no brainer. It was awesome and the sitting area outside brought back memories.

Real Texas barbeque on the street. This place is so fun in the summer. They pack 'em in to picnic tables with affordable, good food. They have a great country band seven nights a week. You'll meet people from all over the country, fill your belly with yummy food, and listen to the best live band around. Just to top... More

I had the beef brisket sandwich platter. The brisket was really good. The coleslaw was ok. I liked the rustic decor and the staff seemed happy to be there. The only thing I could complain about is that they don't allow you to split the check into more than 2.

We were recommended to try this place and we were not disappointed! They are long tables all sideways on to the stage where the band was playing. `it is a very popular venue so try and get there early. If you enjoy mixing with people from all over the world this is the venue for you. Everyone sits very close... More

My husband and I ate here one evening in November 2016. There is a big bucket of peanuts on each table, so you can snack while waiting for your order, but we didn't try them. We each had the rib platter (pork ribs, beans, and potato salad) -- the beans and salad were good, but the meat was a little... More

My family stopped in Page for the night. We wanted somewhere to eat that we couldn't find at home in Idaho. We were recommended a couple of places and ultimately chose this one. We are glad that we got there when did as we were able to get a seat really quickly before the rush came. It turns out that... More

We were here on a Sunday so there weren't many options. But we do love our BBQ. Arrived for dinner early, around 4:30, so there wasn't a crowd. The beef brisket sandwiches were good - these are not big in size though. My kids could have probably eaten 2 each if we hadn't made them eat a salad too. Garden... More

Good atmosphere in this BBQ joint located in a former gas station! You could enjoy concerts of country music during summer!!! The food was good but not extraordinary. Classic BBQ with brisket, pulled pork, ribs and corn. Service was too quick maybe because it was crowded. Anyway the best address in Page where thee is too many fast food...

Fun place with great food. There was a band playing the night I went which added to the country western vibe. Definitely sit outside.

Thank Greg D
