This review is for the Deer Run location. We have been going to this location since it opened. We always eat way too much, as the choices we've made are really delicious. The owner often walks around to chat at the tables, which makes it...More

Ordered the brisket sandwich. Meat was so tender. Had the salad. It was very good. The sauces were tasty. The only weakness was the bun. It seemed dry and crumbly. Service was excellent.

This is a small venue and, like most bbq places I have eaten at, is focused more on the food than the atmosphere. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The others that I was with had ribs and raved about the quality and quantity...More

I was in Calgary for a few days, and was recommended to the Big T's BBQ by the hotel I was staying in as it was only a short walk. While not a large place, Big T's BBQ was a reasonable size, and more importantly...More

No but the menu is heavy on meat items and there are some salads on the menu. Nothing specifically gluten free though.
