I had a two meat plate on 2 different occasions trying different meats each time. Both times it was good but not great. Sides are not home made, meat is decent but nothing over the moon. The sauce seems factory made and nothing special. I can't pick anything that was bad, but at the same time I can't pick anything... More

History in Longview speaks for itself. BBQ sauce is the best and ship it to my family when possible. They have expanded to so many restaurants since its beginning and food is always great

This place is another I grew up with and over the years sort of didn't schedule it into my visits back home. Got used to the the Central Texas old time places and style of BBQ. Recently, the owner Roland's family re established it and it suddenly began finding its appropriate place on must visit BBQ lists around the state.... More

Good barbeque here. I love the sauce that Bodacious has. Just the right amount of tanginess and not sweet. The is very little fat in the meal. So many bbq restaurants seem to have 25% or more fat on the plate. Not here! Brisket is the best. Chicken, sausage and ribs are all good too. Pretty good sweet tea as... More

In my opinion, this is the best BBQ brisket in the Longview area. The sauce is wonderful. Service is prompt. WISH THEY HAD ONE IN HOUSTON.

I always eat barbecue at one of the Bodacious restaurants that are scattered around East Texas this address I believe has moved to Hallsville , but they are all good . The Ribs the Briscet and sausage are all great with great sauce. I seldom eat chicken but friends recommend it

As a food writer and a foodie I rarely give 5 stars to any restaurant. Bodacious BBQ is an exception. Everything I've ever had from them is delicious. My favorite is their chicken sandwich plate (minus the bread) with their beans and potato salad. The beans are perfectly seasoned and just the right texture-- not too thick, not too soupy--... More

Bodacious has good food, friendly service, but price is on the expensive side. Their bbq sauce is still one of the best.

Stopped in for lunch with business associates. Quick service, generous portion, reasonably priced. About $10 for a Mel-man, chips, and drink. Not many tables inside.
