We only stayed in Page for one night, won't remember my meal but I wasn't really expecting to anyway. Portion size wasn't great, the food didn't seem very fresh, and the Cole slaw was just cabbage and mayo. Wouldn't eat here again but it was...More

Hard to advertise Texas BBQ to a group of Texans! The food was good and the band was entertaining. Not quite home for either but still good! Nice to sit outside and listen to the music.

We were there for dinner while staying in Page for a couple of days. We tried a variety of the meats and they were ok, but lacked flavor. The service was good & quick. The corn on the cob was also just ok.

We had dinner here one night while on a short Lake Powell-North Rim vacation. Reminds me of Texas for sure and even had a parking spot just for Ag & Tech fans. The place was full yet we were able to get a table. There...More

The BBQ and atmosphere was good. The staff was very friendly. The waitress was a little slow but they have someone else constantly walking around to make sure your needs were met.

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!
