Interesting combination of BBQ meal options

Besides the usual BBQ plates, they have the Botato (baked potato filled with butter, sour cream, and BBQ topped with cheddar cheese) and BBQ nachos. Lots of sandwich variety in a simple store front. Decor is simple old style countryside diner with antique items. The chicken my husband got on a... read more

Excellent tastes, options, and friendly service. You can tell this is a local favorite. I am not local, but for sure this is my go to spot for BBQ and all else they have to offer.

We were on a roadtrip from Arizona and stopped in based on TA reviews. We had pulled pork sandwiches and they were great. But the peach cobbler with ice cream was fantastic!

This place it's just awesome! Very casual, cheap, and great food. The Botato is something you need to try! The sliced brisket plate and chopped beef sandwiches are excellent too.

Competition quality barbecue served by great staff. Portions are generous at a good price. Service is quick. Worth driving out of your way for this hidden gem. Enjoy !

Awesome chopped beef sandwich. Fried okra was great. If you're expecting a posh place you'll be sorely disappointed. Open boxes of utensils, napkins, an appearance of disarray. But I suppose foregoing the effort to maintain the interior allows them time to concentrate on the food. :-)

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.
