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

Cafeteria style eatery. Decor is dated and spartan. The rib and brisket combo was very good. Side dishes with meal were mediocre. Prices were fair, the portions generous and the service friendly.

Can’t believe other reviews on other sites. Nasty restaurant needs a cleaning from top to bottom or better yet a complete remolded. Brisket had no favor at all, sauce was flat.
