This place is meant to bring a big group. Its located next to a gas station, so they prepare for people to be on the run. You can eat in with sandwiches, meat plates, or take it by the pound to go. Pricing is pretty average. They have a large, homey, seating area making it easy for families or large... More

Obviously, there are more famous BBQ restaurants in Pearland, but if you want to grab some decent food without planning ahead for long lines, or stick close to 288, Big Horn is a fine choice. I took a large group for lunch recently and was able to find a space for everyone to sit together (~16 people) without advance planning.

Was just out and about, decide to give it a try. Great sauce, meat it so tender melts in your mouth. And the bread is fresh made, and the best. Haven't been real happy with the BBQ we have had around here. But I loved this!

Thank you Big Horn Bar BQ from our 25 family members who met here for dinner. Everyone enjoyed the experience. Great food and service. Your private room was ideal. And a special thank you to all the employees for being so nice. Especially Carly. I will be back soon to order family Thanksgiving dinner . Last years was wonderful.

In case you were wondering, this place is legit! Good food, family atmosphere! They also do breakfast tacos and you can DRIVE THRU! Occasionally they have live music.

Nothing special here. It's not bad, but it's nothing to go out of my way for. There are other BBQ places in town (nearby) that actually have better more reasonable prices. It's convenient if you're on the highway, but that's about it. And their gas is higher than anyone else too.

I'm not a huge BBQ eater but this is one my faves when I do want it. Love that there is a drive thru too. I've tried all the sides and they work for me. I enjoy some of the desserts too.

First off I was not impressed by the plethora of taxidermied animals around the walls. There is a bobcat, bear skin, and wolf among others. Secondly, the food was mediocre. The brisket was not very good, the chopped beef had alot of fat in it, and the onion rings were all heavy chewy breading. Finally, it was very expensive, for... More

I eat lunch here about once a week and the food is always top notch. The ribs are my favorite and they have the best bread pudding that you can find anywhere.
