We had a great meal at Big John's. The combo meal was very good with a choice of meats and sides. We were there on a Friday night and there was live entertainment which was nice since we had to wait for a table.

Originally being from Texas, I thought this place was great. The meat had that smoked delicious taste to it and the sauce had the right amount of savory with a tinge of sweet. Pleasantly surprised with their Habanero BBQ sauce- it had a good flavor...and wasn't just hot while foregoing taste. Would highly recommend getting the sampler - lots of food and I genuinely enjoyed everything. My guy got the nachos with pulled pork and was also happy with his plate. I really love a place that's dog friendly. Our huskies were with us for their annual dog trip and being able to bring some fresh smoked bones back to room for them was great. Only thing that was meh for us was the tea....felt like it could have used more sugar but we like really sweet tea - so that could just be us. This place is definitely an amazing spot and when we come back through on another hiking adventure we'll certainly be stopping in.More

Excellent smoked barbecued ribs. Great home made corn muffins. Very rustic place with outdoor shared picnic table seating. There is also indoor table seating. We were staying very close by so we took ours back to our apt. Fall of the bone, melt in your...mouth Baby backed ribs.More

Great BBQ sandwiches. Fast and friendly. Had live music playing at 6pm outside. We lingered to hear the music after eating inside.

The BBQ was great, along with the potato salad and cowboy beans. The people were so nice and friendly. It was low key, just what I needed after a long hot drive. You can dine in or out, but either way it was good food

I'm not the bbq officianado that others are on these reviews (ppl from NC, Kansas City etc) but I have eaten my share and this possibly might be the best bbq I've ever had I had the brisket along with the ribs. Both were cooked...to absolute perfection. I used the sweet sauce they provide on the table which was great as well as the potato salad and beans. Couldn't have asked for a better meal while in Page. Keep up the solid work. Oh! And the wait staff was great. My waiter and the waiters around me all seemed cherry and joyful in their work. That's something to be praised.More

We shared the plate with ribs, bbq, and wings and had leftovers. The flavor was awesome. I'm a rib snob and these were the best I've ever eaten. And that's saying a lot from a person from N.C. which prides itself as BBQ Heaven of...the World. Also, the outdoor service was 5-star!More

The ribs and brisket were outstanding! Also the cornbread is worth mentioning- very good! I really liked the bar-b- que sauce - this is where a lot of bar-b-que restaurants lose me. There is outside seating which was pretty packed on the evening I was...there! Another good sign! If you like authentic Texas style bar-b-que this will be just what you are looking for!More

If we lived it Page, this would be a regular spot for us! Big John's offers great food and comparable service. We ate outside where they have about 20 tables and picnic tables (there were about eight tables inside). It's an old gas station that...they renovated into a cool looking (and clean) restaurant. They also have live music on some nights. We shared the sampler of ribs, links, pork, brisket and beans and potato salad on this side. Each item was great. They have two sauces (regular and hot) and both were flavorful. They have three very large grills/smokers out in front cooking the meats for the day. They don’t skimp on the quality of their products. The service was very friendly and the outdoor area is covered so you're out of the sun. We will definitely visit again if we're in the area. One of our favorite stops!More

The outside area for this restaurant is quite large, I would estimate they could handle 60-80 people outside. If your group likes BBQ and country and western music, I think they would have a great time. The staff is very... More
