The folks at Bodacious BBQ have been serving up the good stuff since 1965 and if you’re anywhere close to the Tyler-Longview area, there’s a Bodacious near you.
There’s a new location just north of SSW Loop 323 on Hwy 155. When you walk in the door, there’s no doubt you’ve walked into a Bodacious BBQ; the dining room sports the same stainless steel tables that you see at other locations and, of course, there’s that great smoky aroma. For you sauce connoisseurs, Bodacious typically runs a little on the sweet side.
Not only do you get the usual good stuff (I’m partial to a chopped beef sandwich), this Bodacious location even has a drive-thru — perfect for picking up Sunday lunch. Of course, the folks at the original Troup Highway location are always anxious to serve you, too.
A sandwich and drink will run about $8. You can add sides to that if you want, but the sandwich is usually all you’ll need for lunch unless you intend on taking a nap later in the day.
Tip: Bodacious makes some awesome Sloppy Joes! Kids love ’em (so do I!) and they’re only about $2 and they’re HUGE! The Troup location has been known to offer them for $1 on certain days. Check out their website or Facebook page for more information.
