We used Big T's to cater a Family Reunion. The service was awful. We had to beg for phone calls to be returned. We were charged for food items that was not on the menu. I would not recommend Big T's for any catering needs

Be persistent in finding this place as it took us a call to the restaurant to locate it as there are no big signs- It Is Well Worth It! Pulled pork was great and the ribs were yummy. We used the mild sauce with it...More

I eat here often,usually to go. The pork BBQ is well prepared. Get the sauce on the side as the BBQ is fine on it's own.
