We saw this restaurant as we entered Page and decided to try it. As luck would have it this is probably the best and most popular place in town. I have eaten BBQ all over the United States and this rated high in my book....More

Page is not exactly the place to look for fancy quality food and Big John's Texas BBQ is no exception. It is a very casual place in an old gas station. Service was fast and friendly but the BBQ I had was subpar to other...More

We had the brisket and ribs. Excellent. Not sure why anyone would call the food "mediocre", @LauraV, as I found the BBQ to be delicious. Well seasoned, and very tender. The brisket leftovers made excellent sandwiches a few days later!

Smoked meat, baked, beans, cole slaw, potato salad, ice cream and county music. It that's what you are looking for, you will love this place. Food is served on paper plates with plastic utensils.

Food was okay, nothing special. It gets served on plastic and cartboard. Go there for the experience. I really liked the live country music and the sitting at the long tables with strangers. Also, the servers were really nice.

This is the most popular place in Page and we understood why - huge portions and great meat, that's everything what you need:)

Order the sampler plate then go back for more if you still have room. Simple menu and everything looked good. Service was good.

But of course...the BBQ master is from Texas. Excellent taste and good size portions. I'd go there again.

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!
