Best BBQ ribs, pulled pork, sausage with beans and potato salad! Huge servings, we split a platter for no extra charge. Seating inside and out. I'd go again!

Hi You seemed to really have enjoyed your BBQ and your experience with us yet you seemed to only give us a one star review. Was this an accident? I just wanted to double check. Have a great day....

Travelling from Australia, we were interested in trying this style of food and John's Texas barbecue sampler was a great introduction! We loved the smokey flavours and the lovely lady who served us our food to go!

Good food served on paper plates. Tasty and well prepared. Even though it was busy we got our food promptly. The waiter was pleasant and helpful. The tables were too close together for my liking and the noise level high but I would go back.

We had lunch there. We had the mixed platter and it was great. Even though everything was great our favorite was the sausage.

We ordered two sampler platters with one substitution at Shawn's (server) recommendation. This was the perfect portion and gave us the opportunity to try their best foods. I recommend this place highly if you are in Page, AZ.

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!

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.
