“Great smokehouse! Fantastic beers and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

Been here a few times and it just keeps getting better. The ribs are great, but the wings might be the best I have ever had, anywhere. Now they are doing seafood and an amazing jerk burrito. The beer selection is one of the best around and has triple karm on tap!!! One of the best beers in the world. Just a great unpretentious little place.

“Boodacades needs to decide.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Boodacades isn't sure if it wants to be a bar or a restaurant. They graduated to sit down tables and booth-like seating from the plastic picnic tables, but retained self service counter ordering from a blackboard. The bar seems to get great service and is well-staffed. Some nights they have a band - so close to the seating you can't hear yourself think and during normal dinner hours. The menu is limited. While they have tried expanding the offerings, it's appetizers like fried mac and cheese and kid stuff. If they want to succeed they'll have to go all bar or cater to families more. You can only eat barbecue so often, and theirs is particularly potent. Unless they add fish or chicken prepared other ways, some healthier sides and entrees overall, I don't see this as a long term success.

If they make it to summer, it might be fun to eat on their deck once, but the view of the road isn't particularly appealing, so once will probably do.

Sorry Boodacades - I like to see a local succeed, but I think you need to evaluate long term demographics and spending and chart a course! It feels a lot like someone wanting a place to hang out and playing restaurant.

“I know some people like it”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

I wish I could say I was impressed, but I just wasn't. I wanted to give it a fair shot. Guess I'm a bit choosey about my BBQ.

“Nice little BBQ Spot in Purcellville”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Although I would not go out of my way to visit this is a useful spot for BBQ in the Purcelville area. The usual ribs and pulled pork sandwiches are available but other less usual choices (e.g. wings) are also on hand. There is a full bar but it is still family friendly with separate seating outside and in for the kids.

So we enjoyed the BBQ and the restaurant and we would revisist if we were in the area and fancied BBQ.

“amazing wings!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

I have been back to the place a few times and it keeps getting better! They have great ribs and the wings are amazing. Can't eat wings at any other restaurant now. The beer selection is great with some nice belgiums in the bottle being served as well as HB on tap! Will be returning soon!
