“Tasty but served cold ....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014 via mobile

Went for dinner hoping to have the talked about BBQ. Ordered the baby back ribs - they came out falling off the bone and fairly tasty, well spiced, but barely warm like they'd been sitting for a long while. What a disappointment :-( Onion rings were delicious though
In fairbanks for a week so ill definitely try other places before thinking of coming back
Roadhouse atmosphere , family friendly

“Texas brisket”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014

We've eaten here at least a dozen times in the last six months. As a native Texan, I was so happy to find real smoked brisket with a delicious dark bark! My husband loves their Moose Nuggets appetizer. The sides are pretty standard but their fresh green salad is a nice break during the winter. Try to save room for the peanut butter pie.

“Great BBQ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014

Big Daddy's got it right! Love to come with my boys on Wild Wing Wednesdays-it's the whole wing so don't make the mistake of ordering 20 for yourself unless you want to take some home . . . which I do as well. Pulled pork, brisket, and ribs all fantastic as well-and I love their great selection of tasty sides!

“Ugh... dry, tasteless food.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014

Me and my husband visited here TWICE. The first time the food was not good at all. Then I thought, let's try it again because the first was just a bad day. WRONG! The second time was even worse! The ribs are dry and poorly seasoned. I DID NOT enjoy eating there and we will NEVER go back again. Ugh!

“Southern BBQ Up North”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014

Right in the middle of old downtown, near the river. It’s a good sized restaurant with a bar off to one side. Not too fancy inside but it’s ok. Went with a large group of people and everyone enjoyed their meal. I had the pulled pork plate with macaroni and cheese and creamed corn. The pork comes on top of a corn cake pancake which was good. Pork was tasty/moist with a few types of BBQ sauce to choose from. Creamed corn was very good. Macaroni and cheese was somewhat dry. Good portion. Price was fair. Overall I was very pleased. Service was friendly. They also have 4 or 5 TV’s throughout the place. Easy parking across the street. Good place for the family or to go just for drinks. I will definitely stop in again when in town.
