We love their barbecue. Their sauces are great. Their potato salad is the best we ever had. Their prices are very reasonable. We buy their food regularly.

Small, quaint, nice decor, clean and good service. But the best ribs around. Meaty without fatty spots and very well smoked.

Just moved down here. Was expecting great BBQ almost anyplace I went. Sadly I guess I was mistaken! NEVER SUBJECT YOURSELF TO THE BRISKET! Bob should jump off a bridge for feeding that to people! My dog eats better. Ribs = boiled! Not true BBQ! And the two young ladies working last night, filthy! The desert was good (Oreo cake)... More

The pulled pork is pretty good, but the pulled chicken is Great! The Yardbird Squealer is my favorite. The slider-sized portion is just right for lunch. The pulled chicken, by the pound, is Pefect for quesadillas and any chicken casserole recipe. Their special Butt Rub is the best seasoning for any kind of Bar-B-Q. This food is best for a... More

I absolutely LOVE their BBQ. Ate there today and had the pulled chicken. The Baked potato salad is a must. My family is excited whenever we have it. The BBQ chips that comes with the family pack are the best. We get double for the number of people and none of it goes to waste.

Out of all the BBQ joints in the area, and there are a ton, this is one of our go to's when want good, fast, fresh BBQ, and good service. Besides their BBQ we really like the Loaded Bake Potato Salad. If you're up for one of those long forgotten treats try their smoked bologna sandwich. We haven't had a... More

Bad Bobs is the best BBQ in Murray. We don't dine-in though. We order it sometimes for big family gatherings, and get numerous pounds of the pulled pork and sauce. Really good!
