This place served one of the best baby backs we ever had. Not only in the sauce, the skill of grilling the ribs to the right crispiness was just too perfect. The cod fish and top sirlion steak were also good. The sides were just...More

My wife and I got carry out from Big Art's for the first time. We'd heard great things about it, and were a little disappointed. The good news is that my ribs were nice and soft, literally falling off the bone. They were slathered with...More

This is a neighborhood "joint"; nothing special in the way of ambiance. Not much seating room so depending on the time, you could be in for a long wait but holy cow, the food is delicious! I had a gumbo, that was a special, that...More

Some of the best ribs outside the state Texas! The cole slaw is simply amazing as well as the other sides offered at Big Arts. Great place to go for ribs.

I have tried a lot of BBQ, and Big Arts is the best! Days open are kind of odd, so check first. Eat in or order out. Very popular with locals. Huge pile of wood next to it, for smoking the meat. About 1.5 miles...More

I was disappointed to read the previous poor reviews. I've been going to Big Arts for several years and I've always had excellent food and good service. The dining area is quite small and, well, cozy. If you're going for "fancy", this isn't it. It's...More
