Big E's is the place for very good BBQ. Their loaded potato is huge so you may want to share. Try the smoked bologna sandwich.

Big E's is known for their BBQ potato and it is very good! It is about 3 pounds of food. If you want a good BBQ potato I recommend trying one from Big E's.

In this area there are 2 bbq joints to choose from and Big E's makes the choice a no brainer. I've read the negative review on here and cannot relate to it at all. Everyone has always been very friendly to me and in the 50+ times we've eaten here we have NEVER been disappointed. We've been eating here since... More

The BBQ at Big E's beats any I have ever had. The loaded potato is awesome as are the slaw&bbq sandwiches. The wings are good but not as good as the other items. The sweet tea is also very good. You can expect to pay $10 MAX per person here and that would make most people 2 meals.
