Great fish & chips, although quite pricey. Very handy being across the parking lot from our Motel . Open till 8 pm, so that's handy after travelling a long way.

My wife and I had a very fine tour of Barkerville. On the way back, we spotted the sign for Big H's Fish and Chips. So totally on a whim, we turned in, parked and ordered. We are very glad we did that. We both really like Fish and Chips, we often try them in new places, so I think... More

We were on a big road trip to Barkerville. We were two Moms and four starving children. What a treat to be able to hit Big H's Fish and Chips for dinner before heading to Barkerville very late (the two restaurants in town there were long closed). We had, of course, fish and chips and they were awesome! A couple... More

Had the halibut fish and chips from this food truck. The halibut was nicely done, but the portion of French fries was very small for the price. You can sit outside or in a tent area with heaters.

This was my second visit to Big H's, and I can tell you, I am already having withdrawals. Once every 2 years is not nearly enough to enjoy this wonderful truck. He needs to move north so I can enjoy him at least weekly. Do Not Miss this Gem!
