Good BBQ. Priced a little high for what it was, but pleasantly surprised. The ribs were the best and we tried it all!

Our Airbnb is only one block away from this restaurant. The service is fast. We ordered full rack of ribs and coleslaw. It is a great BBQ place.

If we would have had more time to search for restaurants, we may have chosen somewhere else, but this is centrally located and seeing the smoke from the cooker out front made it inviting. We chose to eat outdoors even though it was raining. We...More

We had dinner here. What a cool place. It is outside seating under a very high roof. Long picnic tables with checkered thick plastic table coverings and huge buckets of unshelled peanuts that you throw the shells on the floor. We ordered ribs and baked...More

This is not a restaurant you'd pick for ambiance, but their food is fantastic. We picked it up to go and ate at home. Highly recommend, and my husband works in the food industry.

I was there on a Friday night and there was a live band next to the patio. You have to call them to see if they allow dogs. I don't remember seeing any when I went.

You can add as much or as little as you want when it comes to their delicious BBQ sauce. It's the best!

Yes, inside tables were filled with happy diners; outside picnic tables too. The restaurant is an old gas station so that gives you an idea of the size. Wish we could head back this weekend!

Big John's Texas BBQ is a family owned barbeque joint who brings a BIG taste of Texas to Arizona. We slow smoke our meats on wood for hours... You DO NOT need a reservation, just come on down!
