Good barbecue

I found this place while searching on Groupon, when I was in town last month. I looked at the reviews and pictures and thought I would give it a try. I am glad I did. I was quite satisfied with my selections...we all were. My husband had the ranch hand stew, all that was missing was the... read more

I recently went back to Bodacious to see if their quality and service was as good as I remember. 10 years ago, when I worked near, Bodacious was a weekly treat. Upon entering the place, that luscious smoked meat aroma brought back all the great memories. The young lady behind the counter, as it turns out, is the daughter of... More

From the time we walked in I knew it might be a mistake but we proceeded to order. My husband always gets pork ribs and I usually get chicken. .well wouldn't you know they only had... More

Awesome ribs , among the very best I've ever had. Went here for lunch had the ribs which were great. My buddy had the pulled pork sandwich he said it's the best he has ever had. If you love BBQ this is the place.

My husband used to love this place but when we visited recently we were very disappointed by the less than good ribs, sausage, brisket and potato salad. We took our three boys a s they weren't impressed either. It was a bummer all around. Way over priced as well. Go somewhere else.

You order from a counter and the staff was not quite helpful but the food made up for it. The beans were in a chili sauce. The brisket was very good.

Well I have to say that Michelle and the whole group @ Bodacious take really good care of us. Last year they fed over 150 of my band kids and cheer squad and served 135 last night. The food was great and the service was even better. This where we eat before we go WIN another STATE CHAMPIONSHIP!! Do yourself... More

I discovered this place while searching for something close to home and ordered take-out. The pork meat came off the bones and was tasty. The b-b-q sauce tasted very good too. The ham was a little dry but was also tasty. Service was very good. I will come back the next time I want ribs.

We hosted a corporate tailgate party and couldn't have been happier with the service and food! The entire staff at Bodacious went above and beyond to make this a memorable event for our group. We didn't want the group confined to the indoors, so we made arrangements with Bodacious to reserve their back room (with a TV) and the put... More

This wasn't a pretty place to eat but it was clean, and the food was very good. We were told by a local that the BBQ at this place was good so we decided to give it a try. We have learned over the years that some of the best BBQ we have eaten has been in some restaurants that... More
