“DELICIOUS BBC!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2014 via mobile

Before leaving Texas, I had to get some BBQ and this place was highly recommended. When you walk in, it doesn't look like anything special and even had an odd odor (turned out to be the fresh raw pork). Meals are served on disposable everything and condiments are self serve. BUT THE BBQ....OH MY GOSH THE BBQ......absolutely to die for!!! The servings are huge and soooooooo good! Even the sides were delicious. (Best potato salad just after my mom's.) Be sure to stop here before leaving San Angelo!!!

“Great Food and Friendly Faces!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2014

I work very close to the restaurant and visit it often; the brisket and smoked turkey are to DIE for! When in doubt, ask the friendly and helpful staff to suggest some of their favorites from the menu! :)

“Really, Really GOOD!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

I just moved here from South Alabama. We don't have Bodacious back home. I was surprised to learn that this is a chain/franchise. These guys do it like the locals do. Brisket was Oh, so moist and juicy. Full of flavor. It was TOPS until I tried the RIBS! Their ribs made me throw rocks at the (Excellent) Brisket! Perfect, Deep flavor, Nice smoke ring. sauces ok (didn't really need it).

The guys working there really take pride in what they do. I complimented them and there were really appreciative and attentive. The Sides were very good, The Q, is still the Star of the show!

“Filling but unsatisfied”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

Turns out our favorite San Angelo BBQ place, RJ's, is closed on Sundays and Mondays, so we decided to give Bodacious a try. The establishment itself is nicer than RJ's but when it comes to the food, they just didn't measure up. Their sausage didn't seem to have seen the inside of a smoker--you buy a ring bologna at the store and get the same flavor. The brisket was fair. The side of potato salad was nothing special and their beans resembled something more like a chili. They were pretty proud charging about $12 plus drink. All in all we were disappointed. Wish RJ's had been open.

“Good food and value”

This place is nothing fancy, but the food is very good. Loved the brisket, and the pickle and onion bar.
