Great fun on a Friday night. We had a very short wait for a table and sat outside enjoying the band. Food was good and service was friendly. The locals were line dancing on the sidewalk and our 4yr old got on stage to tambourine with the band.

I inquired through trip advisor prior to taking my vacation. I was not sorry. We stopped here at Big Johns for lunch. The portions were generous. I traveled as a family of four (all adults). We left feeling satisfied. Too much on the menu to describe. I had the smoked brisket. My sons had ribs, and my wife did the... More

We dined at Big John's Ribs nearly two weeks ago and my husband is still talking about the ribs; they are fall off the bone ribs, with a very smokey flavor. The food was delicious, with great service. My only complaint (and I feel bad saying this) is they used paper plates....

Great place to eat. Place was packed, but they are super quick. 5 min wait for party of 6, once food ordered, food came within 10 min. Faster than fast food! Very friendly, and efficient. Tasty food!

Pros: Although all seats were taken and there was a line when we arrived, our party of four was quickly seated. The ribs were tasty. The pulled pork, brisket, slaw and potato salad are average. Cons: The restaurant has a dirty feel to it. The beans and side salads are horrible. Pricey for what you get. The bill for our... More

We arrived about 6:00 pm and were delighted that we could eat outdoors and we had a country western band to entertain us. We love country music and BBQ--could not ask for a better combination. Seating is family style and we got to meet other tourists. The meat was tender and juicy and we loved every minute of it! Hubby... More

We both love barbecue and were sure, after reading reviews and getting two in-person recommendations at our hotel, that we were in for a delicious dinner! Not so much - the pulled pork wasn't very good, the beans and slaw were blah, and the potato salad was the best part of the meal other than the scoop of ice cream... More

Found this place after consulting Trip Advisor and glad we had dinner here. The delicious aroma as you walk in promises yummy barbecue. Portions are large. Cowboy beans the best I've tasted. Service is friendly. Next time I'll save room for cobbler!

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!
