can only taste the mesquite or smoked wood... overbearing for me and I couldn't eat it or enjoy the meat. Worst BBQ I ever! The peanuts are nice. The meal is served on paper, not real plates.

The restaurant was rated no.1 in Page, AZ. I guess it is because there are not so many restaurants in Page. The food is just so so. Fast, but definitely is not as good as Texas BBQ. We ordered brisket. It is very dry without...More

The ribs were delicious but wasn't a fan of the baked beans. We sat outside and although it was chilly they had the heat lamps going. Staff was nice!

I biked by earlier in the day and the aroma coming from the smoker reeled me in. We had dinner there later in the day and weren't disappointed. Very tasty bbq and the service was excellent as well. We would definitely return!

Wether you're passing through or staying for a while, this restaurant is a must when in Page. It's hard to miss on the busy street as the smokers are right out front, billowing their wispy, smoky goodness into the air. They have your standard BBQ...More

Lit like a gymnasium, the interior of this joint has rows of long tables with a few for smaller parties. Ribs, pork, brisket, chicken - you can smell them in the big smoker outside, which crushes any hope of eating light. The beer and wine...More

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.

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!
Our restaurant is closed each winter for 2 months.
