My wife and I ordered pulled pork sandwiches to go. They didn’t tell us that they were pulled “fat” sandwiches. We would have sent them back but were on the road. First and last time to eat there!

First off, our GPS took us to the Fox Bakery, not the barbecue restaurant. We found the place, but only as we were headed to an alternate location. This isn't their fault, I just want to point out that the two are not located together....The food is okay. The service was slow at a time when they weren't crowded.More

Disapointed with their brisket dinner i question if they smoke their meats as the brisket had no smoke flavor and a little dry. I smoke my own so i know the difference. Corn bread was very good. Brisket sandwich was chopped should be sliced. Only...one IPA beer a hazy.More

We picked the Big E Steakhouse and Saloon because it was close to our motel and had excellent Trip Advisor reviews. We arrived for an early dinner at 5:30 pm and were seated right away.

 Our waitress was skilled, efficient and friendly. 

Beer on tap...and a sweet tea were excellent. We split the Brisket Burnt Ends, coleslaw and Mac and cheese. The Burnt Ends were excellent. The sides were also very good. 
The 200 seat multi room restaurant included a nice bar. Decor is a southwestern/cowboy combo and is well kept. Parking is challenging and free.

 Liked best…the Burnt Ends. Liked least…I'm really struggling with this one but it must be done.....parking.More

Based on recent reviews we had dinner at Fox’s while visiting Boulder City. We can’t understand the consistent 5 star reviews! Prime rib medium rare was chewy and lacking any seasonings. We ate less than half waitress asked “everything good, right”. No it isn’t we...replied. She just walked away kind of giggling. There are some very interesting options further down Nevada St I think would be worth exploring.More

We stumbled across Fox thanks to the high rating on Trip Advisor. The staff was friendly and helpful. We got the brisket sandwich and the pulled pork from the al a cart menu. The fixings on the brisket were delicious!! The sweet potato fries were...amazing! The pulled pork portion was incredible! The fries and Texas toast were delicious!! This trip has introduced us to fry sauce and Fox’s was out of this world! They mixed bbq sauce and mayo. Wow! I highly recommend this restaurant!! Delicious food and reasonable prices!More

The fried pickles were good, but unfortunately the fried okra was just average. The beef & cheddar sandwich wasn't great; I thought the meat had a funny taste. The service was great though. The waiter was attentive and the hostess was friendly.

We read about this place in Travel & Leisure. It was rated in top 25 bbq places in USA ! We had pulled pork with slaw & cornbread, bbq pork ribs with salad and Oklahoma pork sandwich with peppers and melted cheese. All were excellent...and prices were very fair. Portions were also excellent. Would recommend and go back.More

OK. Not overly impressed. Liked the "cowboy bites" appetizer and LOVED the creamed spinach. Best I've ever had. Would go back just for that. My tri-tip tacos were disappointing, at 2 for $14, I'd rather have gone to Del Taco! Also, the prices were higher...than stated on the web-site and there is a charge to use your credit card.More

I had discovered this restaurant on Tripadvisor and happy to find that it was within walking distance to our hotel (Best Western). The service was top notch! It was fairly busy and the staff was hustling to serve everyone, but you never felt like they...had forgotten about you. It was actually great to see their strong work ethic and their pride in doing a good job. It seemed that the staff all worked as a team - well done! GENEROUS portions and quite tasty. I really loved the burnt tips. The Cesar salad was very fresh.More
