Call ahead, and we’ll save you a table!

Read below to learn about some of our family favorite appetizers, and be sure to stop by Big R’s BBQ in Joplin for some tasty homestyle-cooked BBQ!

Appetizers for the Whole Family

We pride ourselves with having some of the best appetizers in the four-state area. Our appetizers make a great quick snack, or a great pairing for our yummy BBQ! 

Beer Battered Bellas – An R’ Handful of beer battered baby portabellas fried to perfection. These bite-sized fungi are crisp on the outside and warm and yummy on the inside. Your Family will love these even more when they are served with ranch and “R” dipping sauce! 

Susie Q’s – Our signature Q’s are made to order, always fresh, and served in a big “block. We make our Susie Q’s with “R” jumbo Idaho potatoes. We twirl them up and fry them golden brown. You really can never go wrong with some fresh Susie Q’s! 

Beer-Battered Broccoli – These will make any picky eater think twice about broccoli! We take fresh broccoli florets dip them in a special beer batter and fry them golden brown. These crispy florets will have everyone in the family eating their greens! 

Tower-O-Rings – There’s a reason we don’t just call these “onion rings”! Our onion rings are made fresh to order, beer battered and fried, and stacked sky-high! A mouth-watering tower everyone is sure to love. These rings are great by themselves, but even better when you dip them in our yummy R’ dipping sauce! 

The Sampler – Can’t decide on just one appetizer? The Sampler is your best choice! Each sample includes a half order of Beer Battered Bellas, Jumbo Onion Rings, and Beer Battered Broccoli! This feast of our finest apps will have everyone in the family full and happy!

Whether you are meeting up with friends or reconnecting with family over a meal, we are so glad you are a part of Big R’s story. We hope to see you back again and again! From our family to yours, enjoy!
