Dinner with friends: very good bbq food, reasonable prices and good country musik on the outside. Just the blond waiter has to take it easyer, but its ok. I got a plate number 10 and nachos (see pictures), both really good. If you are in town, it is for sure a good choice.

Great food. Great prices. Great staff. Great experience. The brisket is to die for! We shared a sampler plate and that was enough food for two medium hungry people.

Great spot! Sit outdoors and get immersed in the atmosphere with the band, dancing and entertainment. A bucket of peanuts on each table - don't be shy, throw the shells on the ground! GREAT food - the best pork ribs we've ever tasted OMG sooooo good!!! Highly recommend.

The food was ok, pork ribs was really good, beef quality was not amazing (although it was very big dish). We order drinks and the waitress 'assumes' that we want the biggest glass so we get charged 10$ for 2 cups of orange juice. to summarize: quite expensive to pay about 45$ for fast-food diner.

My husband, son and his friends had lunch outside on the picnic tables and we loved the atmosphere and friendly service. And the cherry on the cake was the food was amazing. It was so good my son and his friends went back the next day.

Great dinner and atmosphere with the live band. Felt very "western" with the cowboy beans and the entire vibe of sitting on benches next to other people. Bucket of monkey nuts on the table and line dancing going on too. Really enjoyed our food although fairly expensive in total (maybe because we had a few drinks).. Highly recommend going

I've had a lot of barbeque in my day, but Big John's is way up there! Especially their ribs! They are so tender the meat falls off of the bones. We went there on a recent trip and liked it so much that we returned a second time on the trip. We enjoyed the 2nd time just a much or... More

This place rocks!!!!!! The BBQ is amazing, the atmosphere is amazing, the love music is amazing and the line dancing is amazing!!!! Did I happen to say it's amazing? You have to try this place. Trust me it's worth the wait. Prices are reasonable. I suggest sitting outside as that's where all the action is but they do have inside... 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!
