Welcome to Big Dan's bbQ

Are you ready for some Q?  If you're looking for some of the best ribs, pulled pork, brisket and chicken, then look no further.  Big Dan's BBQ has what you're looking for.  Our meats are slow smoked over a blend of hickory and fruit woods for that great smokey flavor and melt in your mouth tenderness.  We don't take shortcuts, and we don't skimp on quality.  We serve good BBQ food.  Period.  ​​
Our restaurant is located inside the loft at Rohrbach's Farm Market in Catawissa, PA.  (Map here).  Check them out at  We are only 5 minutes from Knoebel's Amusement park, so if you're on your way to the park, stop by!  We are seasonal, so we open at the end of April, and remain open until the end of December.
