It was a bit of a risk contemplating BBQ in Arizona but this place does not disappoint. Outside there are 3 smokers so you know they are serious about their BBQ. My family ordered the full rack of ribs, the sampler and the brisket. All...More

This is not just a wonderful place to eat but also a place to be entertained by others having fun. While we don't know if this happens every evening or every Friday. Brisket and Pulled pork sandwiches were outstanding.

Had the brisket sandwich and ribs. Both were quite tender and tasty. Not fancy and live band outside was entertaining. Peanuts in the shell on the tables was a nice touch while we waited for our food.

This place was amazing. Great food...great service...live country music...good prices...relaxed environment. We had 6 people in our family. Each had their own full meal with drinks and the bill came to $95. I will go hear any time I am in town.

I was there on a Friday night and there was a live band next to the patio. You have to call them to see if they allow dogs. I don't remember seeing any when I went.

You can add as much or as little as you want when it comes to their delicious BBQ sauce. It's the best!

Yes, inside tables were filled with happy diners; outside picnic tables too. The restaurant is an old gas station so that gives you an idea of the size. Wish we could head back this weekend!

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!
