Great BBQ and Potato Salad

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... read more

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!

We had barbecue next to Harley's on the loop in Longview. I never tasted anything so gross in my life. You will not find me there again.

I am quite the barbecue aficionado due to being a southern gal that travels for a living. This was convenient, the sides are good, the BBQ is very good and the folks are friendly.

I've been to various locations and hands down, I think the bbq here is great. That is if you like a sugar-based sauce. Whenever I'm out of town and go to a bbq place, I really miss the Bodacious taste. As to the potato salad, well let me just say it's good too. So good that if any is left... More
