This may be the best BBQ I've ever had. If it isn't, it's a close enough second that I can't tell the difference. Mr Polite and his team at Big Bad W know exactly what makes good BBQ. We had a late lunch with a brisket sandwich and a pulled pork sandwich. Both were outstanding in flavor, texture, size, and even appearance. Do yoursel ... read more

My wife and I have ordered from here twice in 3 weeks and the food was amazing both times. Second time was a large order as we had guests and everyone was asking where we got the food from. Smoked chicken and ribs can't miss! Also everyone enjoyed the Jalapeño BBQ sauce!

This is by far some of the best brisket I have ever eaten!! And I'm from Texas!! I still can't believe there's a place like this in Stafford, Virginia that serves up such tender, moist, and delicious brisket!! I will definitely be back!!

Sooo good! I haven't had good BBQ in years. Until I recently moved to Stafford, and noticed this place and wow! It's the real deal. The food is so tasty. We have been telling our friends and family about this place for months. So, when we hosted a small gathering at our home yesterday, we decided to surprise our friends and family wi ... read more

My family is new in town. This place is hands down the best BBQ joint in Stafford/Aquia area. The owner is an Army veteran whom I can see is very hardworking and is excited to share his talent to others. Brisket was very tender and smoked for a long time and the ribs were also smoked to perfection. Sides were so delicious (fries, co ... read more

If you don't know, you don't know. I just found this place less than two weeks ago and I'm already halfway through the menu. This is some good food. Pricing is reasonable. Check them out.

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.

This is my family's go to place for BBQ even though it's a bit of a drive from our house. We order carry out from here often. The brisket and pulled pork are absolutely awesome. My wife and daughter swear by their coleslaw. Even the fries are great. Highly recommended!

The Brisket was like butter and had the nice char seasoning mmmmmm... the ribs fall off the bone flavor throughout no sauce needed! 🤩 the pulled pork nice tender hint of vinegar flavorful and fresh!!

OUTSTANDING! Every time we come to the Stafford area, we make it a point to include BBW in our schedule. Top-notch bbq that never disappoints. Sides and desserts make it even better. We order extra to take home.

Ribs were great! I'd give it 6 stars if I could. Cole slaw was good, mac & cheese was OK, but the ribs more than made up for it.

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. For 2 of the sides the corn bread was good and the black eyed peas were flavorful but a touch over cooked. 1.5 stars were lost for the wait time - 1 ... read more

After my 3rd visit, I felt so pulled to share -- this place is a league of its own run by a family with a moving military background told by the articles and awards on the wall.

YUM. This place is definitely worth a stop. The pulled pork sandwich and Brisket sandwich were both 5 stars for sure. I’m not usually a brisket person... but this was done RIGHT. It was juicy, tender and I could really taste the smoke in it. The banana pudding was good as well. Also, the woman behind the counter was so friendly. This ... read more

Best BBQ I’ve found in this north stafford area. I would say their pulled pork and Mac n cheese is my favorite. We have tried about everything on the menu and you really can’t go wrong.

Easily the best restaurant in the Stafford region. I've ordered there on multiple occasions and they consistently deliver amazing BBQ. Beyond their smoked meats, their sides are incredible, especially their mac and cheese. No fluff, no frills, just amazing food. If you want a good dinner at reasonable prices, look no further!
