Food is outragiously expensive

I love Bodacious and it's been somewhere where we've gone and gotten BBQ over the years if we didn't cook. Well apparently it's been awhile. The taste is still wonderful, but the price is out of sight. We got literally 2qts of beans and A pound and half of hot links. $41 was the total. I can't... read more

Been in Longview a long time.....from beginning on Mobberly Avenue, food was always very good and dependable. As the branches have opened, they had kept up the quality of the original that Roland started. Bodacious means good meat, excellent sauce, and always good service.

I have tried many of their area locations and their all very consistent. Average. The one thing that stands out is their surprisingly cheap and very good Sloppy Joe's . Even the adults can't resist them. =)

Family favorite for que. I usually get the chipped beef sandwich with potato salad and beans. The potato salad is especially good and so are the ribs. It is a family chain with several locations. Sometimes they have the green cherry peppers I love.

When we pulled up in the parking lot, at 7:45 pm, the sign on the door said they were open until 9 p.m. When we walked in, we got the distinct impression that the people working were not happy to see us. My husband and I each ordered the 2 meat/2 veg plate. We were served our meat, and went... More

I don't know what it is about their potato salad, but it is soooo delicious!! The BBQ is great, too. And the beans are good, kind of peppery. We like their ribs, brisket, turkey and sausage. They have a few locations in town, and some offer smoked burgers. Most of the locations have a pretty fun atmosphere.

I think the best BBQ in Longview - the chopped beef sandwich is enough for 2 people to eat - the ribs are delicious and just the right amount of seasoning - all of the sides are delicious - pleasant atmosphere and workers are really nice

I was passing through Longview and stumbled on to bodacious barbecue. Everything was smoked perfectly and the Boudin was out of this world. My wife loved the smoked turkey sandwich...Small-town Texas at it's best!
