Had the Popcorn Crawfish Poor boy to go. It was massive and stuffed full of tender crawdads. Also got the pimento cheese dip and it was very good and comes with house made crackers. There is no chance you are still hungry after eating here.

I ordered $171.00 worth of food for my twin daughters birthday on 3/27/21. The food is usually good but this time the chicken was horrible and i ordered alot of it. I tried to call and tell them about my experience. I spoke to a nice lady who told me she would have the owner contact me on Monday 3/29/2021. She said restaurant week could be to blame because they were slammed on the day i picked my food up. The owner did not call so i called back and spoke with a man who said he was the manager on 3/30/21. The man was rude and hung up on me. Im done. I'm so disappointed with big jones. I will never eat there again. I usually dont post a review but there service was super horrible.

Food was ok I had shrimp and grits. My wife had crayfish. Etouffe greasey and barley any crayfish. Bar menu was very limited. Server was great. Might give them another try.

The food was delicious, and truly reminds me of NOLA (chicory coffee and beignets reminiscent of Cafe du Monde; and creamy grits that reminds me of John Besh's Luke). Service was friendly. Staff were masked, and wearing gloves. Seated guests were physically distanced from one another.

My wife and I frequently get their biscuit breakfast sandwich with egg, bacon, and pimiento cheese. It's phenomenal. We have also tried a few of their dinner sandwiches and those are also excellent.

Big Jones is the best! Great donuts (when they're doing them, which isn't right now), great food, and great location. Also, their cook book is fantastic as well!

Open from 11a-3p and 5p-8p. Stop by for one of their delicious cocktails or delectable dishes!! Love this spot! Great food, drinks, and friendly service by Garrett!! Garrett goes above and beyond to make your dinning experience one of a kind!

Very nice historical family oriented place. The food was very well prepared. The wine pairing was nice too. Service very attentive. It is in a sort of strip mall so if it's busy parking may be difficulty, but that night there was parking.

We had such a positive first-time "visit" to Big Jones (via doordash). Both my partner and I are vegetarians, but we'd been wanting to treat ourselves to their pimento cheese starter, having read a rave review of it in Chicago magazine. It didn't disappoint, the perfect intersection of sweet and savory. When I called to confirm that the red beans and rice were vegetarian, the staff member I spoke to couldn't have been kinder, though I'm sure they were busy. Rooftop Salad was delicious and elegantly presented, even to-go.

I've been there once for in person meal, but got it to go for Mardi Gras tonight. Surprisingly, it was way better than I remembered it being. We got quite a few different dishes including pimento cheese, pimento tots, corn bread, and gumbo. The gumbo and tots were ok, he the pimento cheese and corn bread were phenomenal! Certainly not to miss. I was greatly impressed with the cheese! For dinner, I got the white meat chicken meat that came with greens and red Beans with rice. I thought $17 for two pieces of chicken was a bit expensive, but the chicken breast was HUGE! It has the perfect fried skin and juicy inside. The red beans and rice were delicious! This is certainly a great place and worth checking out. I will be back and go at other times besides Mardi Gras!

Take out only currently, but very tasty southern home style cooking. We ordered the whole chicken fried and all the sides, well worth it. They also have a wonderful assortment of hot sauces for sale they they make, the garlic one is delicious

My wife had the Fried Chicken Salad and I had the Light Fried Chicken. Both were delicious.

Excellent food and delivery! We ordered and it came fresh, hot, delicious and on time. The fried chicken was amazingly hot and crispy for delivery. The salad and dressing were fresh and delicious. Not only that, I have to give a big shout out to Big Jones for the very environmentally conscious packaging they are using. It was all very nice packaging, but not the load of plastic, that every restaurant appears to feel it necessary to use. Great job Big Jones!

Food was good and coffee was fresh. Menu is fun and offered a lot of different things. Really nice neighborhood breakfast spot. Overall I'd give it a 7-10. If the waitress had maybe come back more than once to ask if we needed anything I would have given it a 9-10. Unfortunately I had to get up to grab an additional cup of coffee.
