Best Bbq North of Virginia!

Big Bad Wolf is the best bbq in lieu of driving to Southern Virginia or into North Carolina! The pulled pork sandwich is a must! A heaping amount of tender and juicy shredded pork served on a kaiser roll. Sauces range from sweet BBQ to triple X to traditional Southern vinegar! Both the beef and... read more

Very Good BBQ for this area, sum of the Best I have had in awhile, hard to find good bbq in this northern region, but this is a true hidden gem for true BBQ junkies!!! Pork or Beef ribs they have both, they are very tender, and the homemade sauces are great! The Hand Cut Fries are Heavenly, the best... More

You may miss this establishment driving by but don't! The BBQ is solid and service friendly. They serve a nice mint ice tea to have with the BBQ. I had the Beef Brisket open faced. Very nice and not dry. I had the Texas pit sauce which is tomato based so it's different but good. If you want traditional BBQ... More

I first tried Big Bad Wolf a number of years ago (not long after they'd opened) after overhearing a respected local chef praise the ribs to another chef. I went to check it out and was quite impressed & pleased. It is a bit far from my home, so I get there only occasionally, but have gone there 18-20 times... More

Very good BBQ joint, probably the best you'll find in Baltimore. Very tender brisket and good pulled pork which comes with your choice of sauce. The sides are good, not great but overall this is one of the best values in Baltimore. There is very little seating so plan to eat in the car if you aren't taking the meal... More

Had tried Big Bad Wolf a few years ago and was unimpressed. Got a coupon in the mail and I thought I'd give them another try. Ordered th pork ribs with the Kansas City Spicey sauce. I was very impressed with the quality of the meat and the flavor. While normally I prefer my ribs with just a dry rub... More

Stopped in for lunch with a few friends and no one left disappointed. The establishment is extremely tiny, but the portions and flavor are huge. Had the "Big Bad Wolf" sandwich and it was well worth the modest price; had pulled pork, beef brisket and hickory-smoked bacon on it. Seating is limited to a handful of bar stools because it...

You can't go wrong here for carry-out food. If you aren't too far away it's worth going by this place. It may not be the best BBQ in the word, but it certainly is one of the best in Baltimore. The prices were mentioned as high in another review and that is not my opinion at all, very reasonable for... More

I stopped here for lunch one day and got the Big Bad Wolf to take out. This is really a take-out place. The Big Bad Wolf consists of BBQ pork, BBQ beef and bacon. It was really delicious-although very filling. I got a side of macaroni and cheese, but was so full that I saved it for later. It was... More

Get the Big Bad Wolf sandwich - it's huge w/pit beef, pulled pork and bacon and is awesome. Very solid BBQ. Wasn't a huge fan of the sides, the coleslaw was a little large cut and watery for my tastes and the beans had a different flavor that wasn't my favorite, but the sandwich was slamming. Good carryout option.
