Bengals and Reds memorabilia decorates the walls, and a Gibson SG signed by ex-Van Halen singer Sammy Hagar hangs near the ceiling. The remaining wall space is plastered with posters and signs from various decades to give the restaurant a fun atmosphere. Big Art's doesn't waste time on fanfare, they concentrate on making damn good ribs. And that's exactly what this little eatery does, offering excellent hardwood-smoked barbecue in a roadhouse-like setting. The menu has a lot of variety, from hickory-grilled chicken breast sandwiches to Cajun-fried jumbo shrimp and smokehouse dinner combos.
