Great Food but best to plan on getting it to go.
We stopped as we were passing through town. It is easy to miss it in an older strip shopping center. We were hoping to sit inside and eat, but decided not to since it was a very small dining area. My husband got the brisket sandwich with slaw and I got the pulled pork sandwich with fries and Mac and cheese. Everything was fresh and t ... read more

I got the pulled pork sandwich with the vinegar based sauce and it was absolutely delicious. Plenty of meat on the sandwich and the flavor reminded me of authentic North Carolina BBQ. If you are looking great food and a great price this is the spot! Will definitely go back to try the beef brisket.

We stopped here on our way home from North Carolina because I had to have my BBQ fix before returning to the north.

Visiting from out of town and found this gem for dinner. The barbecue is absolutely delicious, and you can tell it is authentic pit smoked. I had the ribs, wings, and brisket, and I will say it was as good as I've ever had. Do yourself a favor and stop by here for a happy belly. Owners are super nice too, and we had a good chat!
Udo Mohr via google.com - Nov 16, 2021
Very tender brisket and delicious ribs. For the first timer who wants to taste the best of everything, order the howling sampler and add brisket. Thank me later for advising you to dab perfectly smoked meats into the lemonade BBQ sauce with each bite. I will be back soon.

3.5 Stars - rounded up to 4 - Big Bad W BBQ deserves high praise for their ribs with a nice smoke ring, balanced flavor profile, and a perfect pull off but not fall off the bone texture.
