Big John's Texas BBQ is an excellent spot for Texas style barbecue in Page. It is located in the heart of Page, just a couple of minutes away from US-89. The sampler platter will give you a taste of several of their meats and the full experience. My favorites were the beef brisket and the sausage. The restaurant also offers... More

The location gets packed. there is a waiting time to get a shared table. The food was nice. Nothing fancy nonetheless delicious.

We visited Big John's Texas BBQ for lunch and dinner during our stay in Page. It has a great atmosphere and you can sit inside or out. We tried both. In the evening, they had a country band playing and some people were dancing in a square near the outside tables. The food is simple fare and typical of what... More

8 of us went for lunch when we were visiting Page a month ago. Everyone enjoyed their food. The tea was a little disappointing. But the food made up for the tea. If you are looking for a place to go. This was one of the best places we ate at.

As you see from the pics, this is a fun converted gas station, and if there is a busway place on a Sat night in town, this is it! Super busy when we were there but don't let the long line drive you away. Service is fast and efficient, but he ready to mingle with the people you're elbow to... More

Stopped for lunch while out on a camping road trip. The brisket was above average, well smoked, moist, flavorful, and a generous portion. The outdoor seating is fun. Will definitely return the next time through here.

Stopped at Big Johns after the recommendation for our hotel. The atmosphere is super cool and the décor goes so well with the theme. The live music is a great touch and friendly atmosphere makes it a nice nigh out. The service was good, but the BBQ was ok. I felt like something was missing. Maybe the sauce needed to... More

Meat is smoked on site in a big smoker BBQ but I was disappointed in the meal. Seemed over priced for what you got and my ribs were not very hot Did enjoy the live music and authentic atmosphere

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!
