Can't wait to go back and try some more! Everything was good. Navy bean soup as the best I've ever had. Gumbo soup delish also. Tons of ribs. Corn muffins yummy. Really friendly service. At first we thought it was closed because tables are by the windows and no one was inside. Kitchen is way to the back. Otherwise worth... More

Since Tony Roma's left Utah, I hadn't had beef ribs for years. I was introduced to Big Stuff by a friend of my wife's. She enjoyed the ham, but the bun fell apart. I got my beef ribs and ate them very quickly. They were delicious. This was actually in July 2015. Tripadvisor only let me go as far back... More

Stopped here for lunch, ordered a mixed plate. Liked the ribs, the pork and brisket were fine, I just wasn't wowed by this place. The prices were reasonable though. We'd both give it a C+.

The food is amazing. It's one of the best BBQ places in Cottage Grove, but... Every time I eat there, or get a sandwich, it's ALWAYS cold. At first I thought maybe it was supposed to be a bit chilled. I watched them make it, and it was steaming when it was put on the plate, but when I ate... More

Great barbecue at decent prices. Smoker's right out back, you can smell the deliciousness when you walk up. One of the few places that always has pineapple cider!

Order from the many choices on the big board, pick a place to sit and be sure to look around at the old photos and clever use of antiques and local flavor.

Be careful when you use your card, they will add a tip even when you did not give them. Why will I give them a tip if I had my order to go. BE CAREFUL! Not only is their food with flies they will CHEAT you with the amount that you pay PLUS they will put a TIP even when... More

Good food. My hubby loves it, but I would like to see more choices of sides. The meat is tasty, but the sides are basic. Maybe some grilled zucchini, or corn on the cob.

Having spent 3 years in Texas I have sampled many a BQQ, but loved Big Stuf BBQ the best. Got the 2 meat combo...awesome brisket and ribs. Enough for two easily to eat. Plus homemade sides...had the baked beans, macaroni salad and cornbread.
