Traveling north back toward Kansas, needing some lunch!! Stopped at Big Jake’s—four of us chose a variety of meals. While we were waiting for our food to be prepared, took advantage of the free gas opportunity and had some of the complimentary pinto beans. They were nicely seasoned, with meat, onion and a hint of jalapeño?. My—were they tasty!! For our meal, I had loaded baked potato with pulled pork, my husband had pulled pork sandwich and fries, friends had pulled pork dinner with okra and macaroni and cheese, and chopped brisket sandwich with okra and fries. All of the meats were well prepared and moist; we topped them with our choice of Original or Sweet and Smoky Sauce. No complaints about our entrees or our sides The table was quiet as we enjoyed our meals!! When we finished, we were stuffed—no room for the famous fried pies, so we got some to go. We ate them that evening, when we stopped for the night on up the road. Warmed in the microwave. They were delicious and tasted like they had just been made.
Besides the great food, this location was clean, with a very friendly staff. It was a great experience—one worth having and repeating!

Just passing through and decided to stop. WOW! Good decision. Excellent barbecue with some nice touches. The fiixins bar has a sign offering "Free gas" above a big pot of pinto beans, which were cooked just like gran'ma usta cook 'em. Home made pickles, onion, jalapeños are also offered. I had pulled pork. My wife: chicken stuffed baked potato. Both excellent. Fried okra is also just like granny's. Prices are reasonable and drinks are included. We bought fried pies for tomorrow's breakfast. Glad we don't live in that town. I would look like a blimp.

They have really good meat and fried pies! My favorite meat is the chicken! But they are pretty expensive

Convenient- right on Rt 71 with plenty of parking behind.
Service- friendly and they know their menu well.
Food- I was disappointed in some since it was end of night and ribs were drier than expected. Not the meatiest either. But plenty of sauce available. Chicken was very tender, tasty even without sauce. Variety of sides which were ordinary. Dessert pies were like home made- good crust and plenty of filling.
Price- decent values, not expensive, not cheap though, similar to other BBQ
Summary- best within 30 minutes but better BBQ available in Texarkana.

Be sure to stop here for food if you're traveling through. The ribs were fall off the bone tender and there were free pinto beans with purchase. We also had the cherry fried pie which was awesome!
