Wanted a little western food in the western studio. Very casual and the food was very good as well. Priced reasonable and we enjoyed the sasparilla.

My wife had the chicken pork salad and I had the chicken pork sandwich. She was not able to eat all of hers, food quality and quantity were very good. My sandwich was equally as good as well. Total spent including two drinks was 26. The menu offers a good variety. Plenty of inside seating in the A/C place. Cafeteria... More

We had lunch at Big Jakes. It is cafeteria style, quite a bit to choose from. Decent portions and very good food.

Located in Old Tucson Studios it provides various types of BBQ with sides. Nothing fancy (plastic ware), but it did provide lunch for us.

This is one of the restaurants in Old Tucson. I had a pulled pork sandwich, and my fiance had a grilled chicken sandwich. We both had soft drinks, but beer was available. It was the only large sit down restaurant in the facility. Both meals came with some very bland western style baked beans. It was ok, and there wasn't... More

Inside Old Tucson. BBQ food, convenient for everything you do inside. Not overpriced for what you get.

At here while spending the day at Old Tucson. The sampler platter was $14.50 ... two meats (I had pulled pork and sliced beef brisket) and two sides (I had the baked potato and slaw ... but they had beans and corn on the cob as well). The portions were big and the meat was good, as was the bbq... More

The smell was great as we exited the saloon show. However, that was apparently the food vendor in the front of the restaurant, not the inside. Supposedly was BBQ. Overpriced and undertasted. Had a combo of brisket burnt ends and pulled pork. Since I cook brisket I know that was not burnt ends and was just fatty chunks and not... More

We ordered the sample plate. The cold slaw was the worst I have ever eaten, it was limp and NO flavor at all. The ribs, sausage, bb pork was just all right. We were very disappointed. I think they only reason they stay in business is because they are located in the Old Tucson movie studios. I don't recommend it.

The pulled chicken and pork dishes were very good. Portions were very large. There was a varied menu to choose from as well as soft drinks.
