The sliced bbq would have less smoked. Which can make it rich in taste? No, it is not done yet to serve your precious customers. There is a certain limit where you must stop or slow the burn and smoke to taste that tanned steak. For healthy nutrition a half burnt steak would help for teenagers and full burnt granny and granpas. Do you have a beef leg? That would probably a savage feast. No place in Good year has such an item in their menu.

Marketing exceptional bar-b-que Dinning at Big Apple is not just fun, but it's a wonderful place to be with. I could never forget the taste of grilled chicken. I like?em cos.. I was late to my work on a bad day, when I was rushing ahead to my office the manager readily understood that I am in a bad need of a car. I cannot deny that the food is delicious. It was a nice experience that I enjoyed at the Christmas Eve. I am a food critic working for a monthly magazine as a columnist. I'd recommend to individuals who want to possess a great lunch time along with loved ones I'd recommend to individuals who want to possess a great lunch time along with loved ones

I laughed out loudly in that crowd. My nephew in Bill Johnson's Halloween event.it was a small play that we wanted those kids to do for us, just for fun and photographs. He asked his friend why she needs a broom to fly. The dialog was supposed to be ?cos it has gotta magical power'. Instead the kid replied that vacuum cleaners are heavier. I'm not sure whether the kid forgot the dialog. The lunch was free of cost for kids in themes. I never thought he could eat goodyear's restaurants bbq because he always preferred deep fried steaks.

Hey cool! I agree. I think there are other restaurants, which can also do good at times but Bill Johnson has Some attracts general public. I visited this restaurant lately trying to figure it out why it has so much of charisma! Does any one felt the same as I did? If yes, please like my comment...Finally, I cannot ignore the usda choice of steak is a prime aspect among the entire menu.

I am a food critic working for a monthly magazine as a columnist. I am wondering how these people could think about customers, and make a good business at all times. This was happened a decade before, once I took my partner for our son's special birthday. Our family has been there for lunchtime. Beef filled up our little bellies. We all left the particular spot together with heart full of pleasure. Now it's my son's favorite spot.

Most of us think about a gathering or maybe our spouse and children a day out at some restaurant. I would appreciate this preference with prepared rooster. Great!!! I'm a critic employed in a month-to-month journal like a columnist. We can't refuse how the meals are delicious here. All of us loved it, we had a wonderful dinner which was enjoyable as well as unforgettable. I'd recommend to individuals who want to possess a great lunch time along with loved ones

Yup, it's another great restaurant that I enjoyed. The menu didn't make much different from other restaurants here but the taste really made the difference. None of our family member says no to Big Apple, When ever we think about a lunch or dinner. The lighting, the interiors, wall hangings are best .more than everything we noticed, they are best at the customer service.

Bill Johnson's is one of the best restaurants in phoenix where u can find the food is cheap & easy. It's cute, and a tradition, and also the food, the service is also very good. The wait staff is kind and helpful. The corn was sweet and really good and the sausage was great. I just loved the zucchini appetizer too!!! Love the sign outside though. I really enjoyed the relaxed feel of this place. Food was excellent. Service was good, staff friendly, wow, a great choice!

The only complaint I can think of is we ate too much. I can't even tell you how much I love @BillJohnsons Phoenix restaurant location!!! The atmosphere alone would keep me coming back again. Pulled pork, beef brisket, and hot links, is the perfect combination, to get a taste of everything that is wonderful about Big Apple. It has a very comfortable dining room that is stylish and yet completely relaxed and welcoming. The service was attentive and knowledgeable.

It took 50 years TO GET THERE AND IT WAS WORTH THE ANTICIPATIOON. As a teen in Tucson I would listen to the Big Apple radio boradcasts on my transistor radio.
We drove 2 hours to get there and two hours back home. It was worth it. Great food, service and atmosphere.

I may go again to try the ribs, but I ordered the ribeye. It wasn't very good and the sides were nothing to write home about, either.

Home of the best finger lickinest, bar-b-que beef ribs in the world. Seriously! It has been several years and several beef ribs later, I can still feel the tasty, tender, pieces of beef, with that melt-in-your mouth feel. Absolutely fabulous, and the cornbread muffins where not bad either!

You forget your in Downtown Phoenix when you step inside. The sawdust makes it feel like you step into the old west. The food and prices are good. The whole family will enjoy this place.

No frills -- but good food at a reasonable price. The waitresses wear cap guns & badges, & there's sawdust on the floor. Good place to bring kids & visitors. My friend really liked the beef ribs.

From breakfast to dinner there food is delicious and filling! They have steaks and my favorite meatloaf. The wagon wheeler sampler will stuff you before your food arrives and there apple cobbler well its a must. The atmosphere is intresting too. As a kid I loved the saw dust on the floors and teh bars on the windows like a western jail. The waitresses carry fake pistols and talk with accents.

I continuosly go back to this restaurant and receive the most wonderful service! The steaks are great! Try the 9oz Sirloin, medium, it's absolutely delicious! All the dinners come with a bunch of sides that will keep the hunger monster away! The zucchini and onion rings are to die for & for dessert, Personal Sized Deep Dish Pie in various flavors (I love them all!) that is fantastic!

I'm really surprised Bill Johnsons came up on a list of good BBQ spots in Phoenix. I had the babyback ribs and the sauce was no more than spiced up tomato sauce. If you want good BBQ go to a place that specializes in it!!!

I first tried their sauce bottled in another local store, and didn't like it so it took me a long time to visit Bill Johnson's. While I didn't particularly like the overcooked brisket, my wife had a steak and said it was better than most, espcially for the price. So, while this place is nothing to write home about, I would go there again.

This menu is most aptly described as "coffeeshop-que". The beef on the bbq beef sandwiches taste like pre-prepped Denny's fare. Which is also true of several other menu items including the chicken that we tried. Burgers and greasy and overcooked. I could be wrong but all food I have tried there is pre-prepped and from cans and boxes as opposed to scratch cooking. Server was poorly trained although the Litchfield Park location was relatively new. Atmosphere is okay and with the sawdust style floor reminds me of a California-based BBQ chain as I was growing up there in the early 70's.
