Have eaten here several times and have always been happy with Bodacious. Their warm BBQ sauce is tasty and is a good addition to the already great smoke flavor. The brisket always satisfies and the chocolate chip cookies are definitely a good finisher to your meal.

Bodacious is a great place to get good BBQ at reasonable price fairly quickly for lunch. Wish they had better and bigger seating areas as it fills up easily but that is a good thing for a restaurant as its testament to its food.

Found this place on trip advisor. I'm not huge on BBQ but this place was awesome. The chicken just melts in your mouth and my bf had the brisket and loved it. Sides were all amazing. Coleslaw had too much mayo not enough vinegar but the beans, corn and mashed potatoes were so delicious.

For this Jersey Girl it was a long ride to Bossier City, Louisiana! The pick for dinner was a Botato with pulled pork and I could not be happier with that choice. My son had a pulled pork sandwich which he said was good, too. Friendly employees, great food, low key shop and a big pig on the sign outside... More

Great food, the chicken, beef, potatoes and beans are awesome. Great staff as well, very friendly. I also like the old photos of barksdale and the surronding area.

Solid BBQ. I'm from Houston, and I wouldn't say its as good as some of the places around here, but when in Shreveport/ Bossier City, if I had a hankerin' for BBQ I would go here again.The BBQ potato seems to be the thing to get there, but me and my wife both got bbq plates. Definitely beats casino food... More

This restaurant is located in what looks like it was once a convenience store and there's no frills and thrills but none are needed. The good BBQ speaks for itself!! Amazing food! Don't let the exterior fool you.

I drove for 603 miles yesterday, and was tired and grumpy when dinner time came. The fact that my gps sent me nowhere near the actual restaurant didn't help! When I got there I had the "botato" a rather large potato with lots of butter, cheese, brisquet, BBQ sauce, and sour cream on top...ahh. Add the mint sweet tea and... More
