Phoenix New Times' Description

Find a mix of barbecue favorites and Southwestern-style cuisine? That’s exactly what you’ll find at Big Earl’s BBQ – along with the best pork ribs, killer happy hour deals, and James Porter (who also heads up Petite Maison), a chef who means business in the kitchen. As for those delectable ribs, tender with a pleasant gnawability and great flavor, order a rack to go with a piece of cornbread on the side, no extra sauce. Or, if you’re there from 2 to 6 p.m. on a weekday, snag some chicken tenders with a cheddar-chive waffle for only $5, served with both a spicy and a sweet sauce. The Old Town Scottsdale restaurant is also notable for being featured on Travel Channel’s Man V. Food Nation. Host Adam Richman’s favorite dishes were the mac and cheese as well as the Southwestern take on corn bread [made with jalapenos, bacon, and chipotle honey butter].

    Best of Phoenix 2011 Winner: Best Pork Ribs! Debate about Big Earl's all you want — but pork ribs are one thing this Scottsdale-ified faux smokehouse does right.

    $5 Margarita and Sangria=Yummo!

  • Aaron B. on 02/09/11

    It's good food, but definitely overpriced... and in desperate need of a lunch menu.

  • Patrick on 07/06/12

    It was good.... Not great. Agree with the overpriced opinion. However they have 90 Shilling on tap which wins them points!

    They should call this place little earl's!! My daughter could've eatin this pulled pork sandwich with one bite! But Adam Thacker from Chicago liked it!
