Our party of 7 ate an early dinner here tonight. Service was quick and everyone was very friendly. You order at the counter and seat yourself. We had the restaurant to ourselves but they were also serving a large group in the atrium area of the theater. We had brisket, pulled pork, salad, chicken and ribs. Everyone liked what they had. The sides were good as well. The fries were crisp and seasoned. The pit beans had a lot of pork in them. I didn’t try the Mac n cheese but it looked good. We plan on returning.

Yes, this really is the BEST BBQ in Branson. Every item is perfect. Even the bun on my pulled pork sandwich held up well with all my added cole slaw. My sides: cole slaw, fries, and beans were so good. I know I'm going to crave Big D's BBQ!!!

Joined friends for a luncheon at Big D's yesterday and had a great time. Tried the smoked chicken platter (one half of a chicken) with sides this time. It was great. Very Good. Awesome.

Good BBQ. Meat was tender and sauce had good flavor. Owner came to table to ask how things were, found out he was a farm boy from Carson, IA...right down the road from our home in Council Bluffs. Highly recommend. Good food!

We had a bite before the show since it was convenient. It was average bbq. I had ribs and my husband had brisket. Both were cooked well but just not much flavor or seasoning. Sides were okay.

Obviously we are disappointed and curious as to why you felt our BBQ lacked in flavor.

We are unique in that we use our own seasonings and smoke our meat start to finish on the smoker. We take great pride in our process. We do not infuse liquid smoke flavor or smoke our meat for a short period of time.

Each slice of brisket offers a bark, layered with seasonings that can be tasted with each bite. Because our smoked meats are tender, flavorful and moist we serve sauce on the side and stand by our motto of “if you’re saucin’ you’re hidin!”

It’s unfortunate that you did not speak with one of our owners personally. Customer satisfaction is important to them and they would have been happy to resolve this issue. Unfortunately they also realize that you can’t work hard and please everyone.
