Pretty good bbq, place was empty which was a little weird

I've never had vinegar based sauce and think for first time this was very good. My son loved his food and prices were very good. I've had better bbq but this was SE Virginia not exactly a mecca of bbq. The building was empty and dark and service was not very good but in general food was good... read more

This place is a cheap place to eat for BBQ. The decor is unremarkable, even run down. The place is a bit difficult to find and we passed it twice before figuring it out. The food was plentify though non remarkable. I would eat there again if I happened to be near there. The waitstaff was good.

Good BBQ! Mixed the two sauces on the sandwich! More that enough for my 6-7 frame to eat. Added beans and was full! Prices okay and food okay. Setting is old and dated but you come to eat anyway.

From the moment you walk in, you are surrounded by the heavenly smell that is BBQ. This is a super casual place with one waitress and great food. We decided upon the BBQ rib platter and the BBQ pork platter. Each comes with slaw and hush puppies and in addition you can pick 2 other sides, so you end up... More

Perhaps it's my upbringing in the Piedmont North Carolina land of Lexington-style barbeque, but I was thoroughly disappointed by the tasteless offering at Bad Wolf. Service was sweet and efficient, but for anyone seeking the restaurant's signature offering I'm sure there must be better places, even in Virginia.

We had the Pork BBQ Sandwich, Fries and Slaw. The Q was ok, but not great. Prices were very reasonable and the service was good.

What can you say, Their cue is better than your average fare. I like my bbq a bit to the smokey side,and Bad Wolf delivers. With good BBQ, you should have smoke flavor in the meat. Bad BBQ has no smoke flavor other than in whatever sauce they put on it. Bad Wolf BBQ does it right. That being said,... More

Very nice people. Good southern charm. Pricing is very fair too. Being from NJ i am used to paying a lot more more food. The low prices scared me but everything was fantastic. I had a burger and chicken strip salad. Atmosphere was depressing and it looked like half the restaurant was shut down. Overall, give this modest place a... More
