The food is fantastic. The menu is excellent, giving the people of Iqaluit a "foodie" option they did not have before. BBQ was badly needed in Iqaluit and Big Racks fills that need. The ribs are the best I have had. They would need a...More

Great tasty pizza served by great guys. It boasts smoked meats and is open late in a community that closes early. The aroma alone will spur on your appetite.

Love the meats! My favourite is their barbecue pizza with pulled pork, brisket and chicken, delish! good service as well. Would love to see some more traditional foods on the menu, like pulled caribou and smoked char.
