Music playing and it’s welcoming BUT the food was a really big disappointment. Too bad because it takes up a whole corner and it looks like it’s going to be good, but all three of us were not happy.

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.
