I used Big Kahuna's Bar B Q to cater my son's wedding, which was located in Canby. From the beginning of getting quotes to the final event, Gary was wonderful to work with. To top it off, the food was amazing. I had so many compliments about the quality of the food - not to mention the quantity. The prices... More

Had the rice plate with kahuna pig. Sides were the mac and slaw. Good stuff. Park on the street. Look forward to returning and trying more menu items.

My daughters just used Big Kahuna's to cater my birthday party. The food was absolutely fabulous! The Spam Musabi impressed the Hawaiian in the crowed. The servers that were assigned to the party were very friendly and curteous and a great help. I was not aware of this establishment before today but I will definitely be eating there.

Drive by this place all the time and decided to try it. Have to pRk on the street as there is no parking. Very small place a couple of tables outside and maybe three inside. One person restaurant. They were out of ribs and sausage, for a bbq place not good. So I tried the rice combo platter. Two sides... More

Some of the best barbecue chicken I have ever had. They had a large selection of sauces to choose from, but the chicken tasted too good without the sauce. I also had their potato salad and pasta salad. The potato salad was very good, but i really love their pasta salad. Both are simple, savory (not sweet) and quite delicious.... More

Our work site had a appreciation lunch for about 250. The line moved along well. I'd say that service was complete within a half hour.Pulled Pork and Smoked Sausage, Island Slaw, Hawaiian Mac Salad and more - excellent! Very impressive and kept the food coming and hot and friendly folks while they were serving.

This place moved a few years back and the new location is less fun to visit and much more cramped. The food is still outstanding and the same staff so it is always friendly and courteous. If your from out of the area it is a good bet as it is off the beaten pass in a more industrial type... More

While searching online for a place to eat, we found this BBQ joint. Don't be fooled by the modest brick and mortar site...We walked right into a small space, with trophies and awards lining the walls. We had service right away. At our table we ordered ribs and soup. The most delicious food! The food was plentiful and the reasonable... More

This tiny restaurant is filled with trophies from the many BBQ competitions that they have won -- and with good reason -- the food is great. Low on atmosphere, great on service and food. And cheap. I had the Kalauha Pork plate (side was the mac salad). Every time I've eaten at the BF it's been great. No complaints. Still... More
