  • Friday's lunch special the Sloppy Papa. French fries smothered with pulled pork and slaw. You know you want it.
  • Best BBQ in town!
  • The Sloppy Pappa was delish!!
  • The Mac and Cheese on the side is exquisite.
  • My first trip to Big Papa's, many more to come! Delicious baby back ribs, the meat falls off the bones & plenty to eat! I want to try more of their menu offerings-yum! Love the Fire Inside sauce!
  • The burnt ends are to die for. The deeper the char, the better they are.

  • Have you tried Big Papa's breakfast yet? We finally did this past weekend. A mountain of food and a mountain of flavor. We will be back.
  • Great little place. :) my husband had 1/2 slab of ribs and he loved it. I ordered the chicken sandwich. Was so good. :)
  • Great baby back ribs, unique sandwiches that are awesome. The red neck is my favorite, with the wrecker a close second. Friday night specials are the best deals.
  • Great baby back ribs
  • Ask for 3 different things and they didn't have it and then when I finally got my food it was burnt, dry and tasted bad. When I spoke to management, I could tell he didn't care.
  • Delicious food. Great atmosphere. Now serves beer.
  • Just sank my teeth into the Texan Cheesesteak Sandwich. Brisket, grilled onions and cheese equals heaven on a hoagie.
  • Brunswick Stew is fantastic!!!
  • Try the brisket. It's awesome!
  • They have been closed for some time!
