I love this place. The fried pickles are great. The bbq cheese fries are amazing. They are reasonably priced. It's great bbq. The loaded baked potato salad is also great.

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!

Bad Bob's has always had great food. The pulled pork BBQ is always smoked perfect and they have good sauce to compliment. My personal recommendation is actually for the potato salad. It has bacon and sour cream, and is super yummy!

Great place to get BBQ. The potato salad if the best I have eaten anywhere. A must eat is the BBQ bologna sandwich with hot sauce.

If you are wanting BBQ and are in town this is one of my favorites. I normally get the "little hog" meal. Comes with a sandwich and u can add slaw on top for free. Also comes with a drink and one side all for $7.00. This is my favorite but I haven't eaten anything here that I didn't like.... More

I used to eat here once a week. I ordered a "yard board sandwich", which is pulled chicken on a bun. 9 out of 10 times I've ordered this is was very dry. Dry as in if you take a bite before you get your drink you will probably choke! The flavor is good, but it just tastes like maybe... More
