Big Earl's BBQ - Closed

7213 E. First Ave. Scottsdale, AZ 85251 | Central Scottsdale | 480-947-6800

Location 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].
