Good BBQ, Great Homemade Sauces, V Good Prices

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... read more

We get carryout here quite often. I think we have had all the items on the menu, and most of the blackboard specials. Their grilled shrimp was moist and delicious. new sauces are always appearing. So glad this eatery is in my neighborhood.

We had two orders of pork ribs and both were excellent but the cornbread was terrible and the dinner roll was stale. The fries were great. Worth a return trip.

We tried the Big Bad Wolf sandwich (brisket, pulled pork and bacon on a roll) and a 1/2 slab of ribs at a cost of $27. By the time we got home (this place is located about 20 mins from our house), the bottoms of both sandwich rolls were soggy and gluey. There were big chunks of fat in with... More

Neighborhood: Not very inviting, but not too far from an area with places to eat and drink that are well reviewed. Just hasn't quite developed into a neighborhood where I think people would want to walk around and shop, eat and drink. Not a lot of parking spaces (on the street) nearby. Atmosphere: This is basically a "shack" with a... More

Based on reviews we gave this place a try. We decided to order the Family Rib, I requested if it can be 1 pork with texas pit sauce and 1 beef with carolina mustard sauce with corn bread (48.00). The pork ribs was tender and ok but oily and too much vinegar. The beef ribs was good but disappointing it... More

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 pork ribs are so tender...

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

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
