“What's so special.”
Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

It was OK. The ribs were good with a good sauce selection The brisket was a little on the dry side. The sides I had, slaw and okra were just OK. There was no one wiping tables the whole time we were eating. Our table was dirty when we sat down and we had to clean ourselves. I've had better.

“Oh my brisket!”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

Ordered the two meat big mama with baked beans and corn-on-the-cob for sides. Tried the ribs and brisket. May have been the best brisket I've ever eaten. I didn't even need or want barbeque sauce. And the brisket was so lean! This place was a great roadtrip find for the cowboy and me!

“Good BBQ - not frills”
Reviewed June 14, 2012

The food was great (ribs, pulled pork, chopped beef, turkey, ham, fries and beans). We got the family half rack of ribs and the family sampler of quarter pound amounts of four meats. That one did not include ribs and our family of five wanted to sample everything. The ribs came with one side and the sampler with two. Portions were good sized. Both orders came with drinks. We got too much food, but everything including the drinks was still less than $41. Service was order at the counter and come when your number is called and food is ready. The owner came over to check on us. The ownership has a nice story as the kids have continued on for the last couple of years after their father, Big Daddy Johnnie Ball passed away. No frills, but the food is good. The sauces were good. We especially liked the spicy sauce, ribs and pulled pork, but everything was really good. In hindsight we would have ordered slightly differently as all the group meals were a bit confusing, but the quality and value were there. We would eat there again. Our kids wished they had a Big Daddy's in our town.
