This is outstandingly good food for a roadside place. How can this be tucked away almost in the middle of nowhere? This is big city high cuisine in super down to earth cozy package. I will come back for sure! This place completes my magic...snack triangle consisting of Der fette Hahn, Nievenheimer Grill and Big Hug.More

Really easy to find, stands out you know your in the right place, walked inside the decor is amazing, the whole ordering and help yourself thing is just genius! My partner had the pulled pork baked potato, I didn’t know what to have so chose...the motherload! Every bite was different the flavours were incredible! The creamed corn is to die for! The meat was the real star of the show my spare rib bone fell out of the rib! Would highly recommend as it’s a brilliant place! The owner explained it to me at the counter he handed me a queen of hearts card, instead of numbers restaurants sometimes give you, he the said, come up here to order, if you want anything else just get it, made me feel so at home and was completely comfortable In there! Amazing place would go again!More

As easy as it is to find a BBQ place in any Southern US state, finding one in Europe is close to “unobtanium”, let alone a good one. So, we were all the more pleased to receive a recommendation to check out Big Bug BBQ...and to satisfy our non-vegan cravings for a hunk of cow and pork. Big Hug does BBQ right! Good quality meat, good smoking flavors, tasty home-made sauces and side-dishes, very fair portion-sizes, friendly service and basic, but comfy environment. In short, the perfect place to pig out. We sampled the entire menu and liked all dishes. I particularly enjoyed the ribs and spicy sausage. They also offer a range of micro-brewery / craft beers, which added well to the overall taste experience. We will definitely be back when next in that region and recommend Big Hug BBQ to anyone who wants to experience proper American-style BBQ in Germany.More

BBQ ribs, baked potato and pulled pork. Doesn't get any better than that. Friendly staff and very tasty food. While visiting Germany, this is a favorite go to place and a must for our vacation.

It's a little hard to find, but well worth it. The pulled pork sandwiche was as tasty but juicier the my usual barbeque place in Texas, and the potato salad was classic German. It's right beside a small hotel, so when your nav computer says...that you've arrived, and all you see is the hotel, pull in there. It's next door.More
