Excellent place! Friendly and affordable. Live music from 6-9pm, not hurried out despite the queues to get in. Food is delicious!

We visited at lunch and were very happy with our food! Being from Texas, we know good BBQ…and this did not disappoint! Our chopped beef sandwiches were very good….and we got to choose our own BBQ sauce! Nice waitstaff…homey atmosphere!

The food was not typical of Texas Barbeque. Brisket was dry and there were flies around our table. We found that the quality of the food and the high price really didn't match!

This place was fun all over the place. Lucky us as we have been able to skip the queue, but even waiting for it would have been worth it! Decent food with great music and good service. We highly recommend the Nachos, the Burger and...the Ribs. You will not be disappointed!More

Great Saturday night atmosphere with long queue and live music, sitting outside watching the distant thunderstorms. Delicious pork ribs barbecued to perfection: tender, smoky and moist. Poor brisket, chopped not sliced - I now understand why they won't slice it: they can't. It is overcooked...and dry, with almost no flavour and tough texture. At $26 a pound a rip-off too. Average sides and very vinegary sauce. Vastly overpriced (roughly double what the equivalent costs in Houston or Dallas), so a mixed bag here, with clear room to improve...More

Super glad the place next door was closed so that we went to Big John's instead. Delicious BBQ with really great service. Definitely would recommend.

So glad we chose to get take out instead of eating in! We came in on a Friday night, and the place was packed with live music happening outside. Having never been here before, we got the sampler, which had brisket, pulled pork, sausage, and...ribs. Everything was good, but nothing really stood out. The cowboy beans were not great, but the potato salad was decent.More

Service was VERY fast and informal which we liked. My wife and I ordered the pulled pork and chicken sandwich. Pulled pork was good but on a cheap bun, and my wife got half of the protein on her sandwich that I got. For $15+...dollars a plate, overpriced and unexceptional.More

Great Food, Great Service. As the resturant gets filled up, it does get quite loud. Make sure that you save room for their wonderful desserts

Times have changed. Last time I was here was about 5 years ago and it was a nice experience, but my recent visit was horrible. I don’t mind throngs of rude foreign tourists, but when the waitstaff says 20 minutes to be seated and an...hour later you’re still waiting, this dump can go take a hike off the Dam.More

Well we’re glad you came back to visit us unfortunately we have no control over our rude customers ( you included) and we also have no control over how long it takes people to sit and eat. August is our busiest month of the year...More

We were lucky enough to easily get a seat for lunch-given the lines we have witnessed while in Page. The BBQ beef was so good, and the price for that plus a small drink and chips(children and 62+) was great!!

Cozy ambience and friendly staff. Do not expect a fancy restaurant with cutlery or crystal glasses, instead you will find social tables to share the experience with friends. The food was amazing, the ribs are slowly cooked and not covered with gallons of cheap bbq...sauce, instead you can choose the sauce you want to put on top. Great nachos, and fantastic brisket! The waiter was super nice, we also enjoyed the live band.More

Meat was dry and service was horrible! To top it off....it was expensive! Coming from South Florida, we have BBQ restaurants that would put this dump to shame...at half the price! TOURIST TRAP.
