Fun Atmosphere

Big R’s is thankfully not a corporate chain! That means our family-run restaurant can decorate our dining area however we want. Our dining room is covered with items that display how much we love Joplin! From funky art and warm lighting fixtures to unique architecture and vintage street signs, everything is chosen specifically to create that homey atmosphere that our local customers have come to appreciate and love. One of the best things about eating out at a Big R’s is the ability to feel as comfortable and relaxed as if you were at home, and that is how we want you to feel when you join us for BBQ here in Joplin.

Good Food

Start your meal out right with one of our staple appetizers like our R’s Fried ‘Shrooms, and even our Tower – O -Rings, which is a mouth-watering tower, full of our COLOSSAL beer-battered rings served with our signature R’s Dippin’ Sauce. Mmm!

Did you know we have salads right here at Big R’s BBQ? We serve salad options that include our tasted Hickory Smoked Brisket and our Fried or Grilled Chicken. What more could you ask for on a yummy salad?

Or skip the salad and go with our ‘From-Scratch Fried’ chicken sandwiches, our ‘Premium Flame broiled’ burgers, or our award-winning ‘Slow-Hickory Smoked’ ribs and brisket. We promise you will love it!
