Of course being from Texas we had to try it. We had chopped beef and pulled pork. Both were good as were the sides. Decorated with Texas stuff and a big pail of peanuts on the table. I recommend

Terrific BBQ, great fun. Loud and a bit rowdy, but food was awesome. Portions are huge. My husband and I shared a plate of four different meats, and we left stuffed. Good beer to wash it all down.

We stopped here after our Kayak trip. We sat outside. Nice patio. The food was good. Service was good even though we were told that service isn’t usually great in this town. They have music outside later in the day I assume. They weren’t playing...More

No reservations needed/taken as is a Very informal place!! Not at all fancy. A lot of people do take out and they serve everyone in take out containers.

I was there on a Friday night and there was a live band next to the patio. You have to call them to see if they allow dogs. I don't remember seeing any when I went.

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! Our restaurant is closed each winter for 2 months.
