Loved the sandwich plate. Sliced beef, cole slaw and green beans was very, very good. Love the bbq sauce too!


The food is always delicious. Better than any of the other local Bodacious BBQ restaurants. Everything is good & prices are fair. 100% would recommend.

Best brisket I've ever had. Very expensive though. Single meat plate x 2 with drinks was around $45! ?

Love the baked potatoes. I usually get the brisket or sausage with my potato.

Not great, not bad. Just good. Meat was tender but bland. Brisket was dry. Didn't care for their sauce. Coleslaw very good.

Was good food but they let panhandlers in to disturb us while we was eating.

Brian S.

Customer service was non existent. Food would have been flavorless if it wasn't for the onions and Jalapeno's.

Natalie Hall

Barbecue ribs taste boiled and then placed on grill

David Kelly

The meat was good, the sides on the other hand were atrocious. Mac n cheese that was like soup with cheese flavored water. potato salad had no flavor other than mayo and mustard mixed together. Wouldn't eat there again

Jeffrey Justice

We stopped in because of the good reviews. How can it be considered bbq if the meat is boiled? Do local people like boiled brisket? Zero flavor. We threw our chopped beef sandwiches in the trash. Please stop calling it a bbq place if you are not going to use a pit. We feel like we were robbed

I am addicted to their baked potatoes with chopped beef! Their brisket is hands down the best. Never dry, always juicy. The staff is speedy and friendly. Take my coins!

Everything was perfect. The best beef and smoked sausages.

Excellent customer service, very clean, moderate parking. Not your back yard BBQ. Commercialized atmosphere and taste.


Driving through town and stopped to get food To Go. Got a sliced turkey sandwich and a sloppy joe. With tax both under $10. Friendly staff, food prepared quickly and I was back on the road. Meat had a good smoked flavor and buns were grilled. Overall very good.

Always great place to dine. Friendly employees. Always keeping dining room clean

Alexandra Lopez

The food was amazing, and the service was great. They are really friendly.

Christopher R.

Very good barbecue. Extremely clean and inviting. The sides were very good as well. They could stand to smoke their meats a little bit longer but they were tender and flavorful. The sloppy Joe's are seriously outstanding and they only cost $1.50 on Wednesdays.

Jeremy Brand

The food was pretty good, the service wasn't bad, the decor isn't the nicest I have been in

Karen G Doss

It's a great place for meat lovers! Very tasty beans and cole slaw, too! Nice and clean place to eat.

G Davis

Outstanding and friendly staff! Great BBQ and sides at a fair price. Nice portions too.

Reo Atienza

Delicious food. The ribs were moist and juicy and the hot links had just the right right amount of kick

Craig H.

We stoped here on our way to Houston Texas from Memphis Tennessee and if I must say so the hot link ranks number 2 best I ever had . The ribs were to die for I had a sandwich and it came just how I wanted it ribs and link on the same plate . Yes Yes yes . The ribs was four 4 bones in a sandwich order and the link on the side was the perfect combo . Their brisket looked good along with their chopped shoulder sandwich . Every time I'm in their neck of the woods I will be stopping . #RealTexasBBQ
