“Very tasty ribs!”
Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

The ribs here were very yummy. All meals were served in polystyrene containers but that didn't really matter. The ice cream for dessert was very tasty too.

Had wonderful smoked ribs and brisket for dinner. Inside and outside seating area. We sat outside on the picnic tables and enjoyed our meal. Good service.

We arrived in Page very early for our Colorado river float and were starving. Big John's was right on our route and had a huge meat smoker in the front, kicking out wickedly good smelling aromas, so we decided to stop.

Holy cow, are we glad that we did!

We had already made later meal plans, and so decided to split a pork nachos and an order of cowboy beans between the three of us. The nachos were absolutely delicious and covered in meat and cheese. The cowboy beans were also excellent and came with a corn muffin.

We chose to sit outside in what obviously used to be a gas station. There were tons of picnic tables that were shaded and in direct view and smelling distance of the smoker out front.

The service was prompt and friendly, the food amazingly good and the prices were very affordable.

We had good intentions of coming back for dinner, but ended up elsewhere due to location and circumstances, however, if we're ever in Page again, I absolutely wouldn't miss this place. It's excellent by all standards!

“Great BBQ”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

This BBQ place had great food for a good price. I would recommend it. We stop at a lot of BBQ places on our road trips and this one was pretty darn tasty. The meat was really, really juicy.
