Nice cafeteria style BBq...good sauce, I prefer the ham plate which is very juicy and yummy. Nice folks and I am addicted to the macaroni salad.

This is a fun no-frills place with down home delicious cooking and a wonderful bakery and bookstore both adjacent. Had a great time with the bookstore items, and the bakery is awesome! Don't miss this!

Big Stuff offers excellent smoked barbecue. Large portions and excellent sides add to the value of this delicious barbecue. Great smoke on the meats. They also have a selection of sauces on the side. This is very good barbecue and the best we have found in the Northwest. The only complaint we have is the brisket is sliced and then... More

Very casual, stand in line to order and pick up your food, limited menu, friendly owners/server, bus your own table.

Good BBQ places are rare in Oregon. This is one of the good ones, and I'm saying that as a Texas boy who loves his 'cue. Big Stuff Barbecue in Cottage Grove has all the essentials one wants to see--they know their meats and their smoke, they use real hardwood (oak in this case), they built their own smoker, and...

We live in Salem, so Cottage Grove is not just a quick drive for lunch or dinner. But we found ourselves in Eugene today (just a few miles up the road from Cottage Grove) and have wanted to check out Big Stuff for quite some time. We were not disappointed with the food. We got a sampler plate which was... More

Enjoyed pulled pork. Had a great smoky flavor, and the pork was moist and flavorful. Portion size was decent. Very friendly staff. Bbq sauce was not too sweet like some places. You can tell they take pride in their food.

My family and I love this place. My favorite meal here is the rib combo. I always get spares w/baby back ribs and double homemade fries with spicy seasoning. Super yummy!

This is perhaps the best BBQ in Oregon, IMO...hot, fresh, and flavorful even without sauce, the bark on the meat is perfect, cooked to perfection over wood pit. Side dishes are homemade. Family owned, they are very friendly and serve you one of the best meals. The building is historic and so is the food!
