I headr all these good things and then am disappointed. I ordered barbecue chicken off the bone from the menu. It was full of chopped up bones so had to be careful. The "baked beans" I would call pork and beans maybe from a can. Two of our party would not eat them and two that I know did complained... More

Ryan W, General Manager at Wolf's Bar-B-Q Restaurants, responded to this review

David, I'm really sorry to hear your experience was disappointing! We pride ourselves on our food and service. Finding bones in your pulled chicken is unacceptable! Our staff are trained that if there is ever any sense of a problem, they are to inform a manager and that manager is to see that it is resolved. We want happy guests!... More

They provided EVERYTHING - even toothpicks! Food was delicious and MORE than enough; gave away lots.

I returned to my 'home town' for a class reunion and was able to go back to Wolf's. The barbecue is just as good as I remember it and now they have a buffet where you can get barbecued pork, and chicken, catfish fiddlers (a small catfish) and gobs of veggies. The food was as good as I remembered it,... More

This restaurant has been around for many years. In recent years I believe the food has become better and more consistent. There was a period of time a few years ago when I thought the restaurant would not survive because it was not providing good consistent food. That has completely changed and it is very good now. They have a... More

Love this buffet. All you'd want! Bbq choices, chicken, and catfish plus their famous sides of slaw and vegetables. Love that the seating is not so close together.

I haven't eaten here in 32 years and I knew I had to come here. I was in town to bury a family member and as soon as I was done I came here. Place is bigger than when I was last here but the food is just as good. HUGE portions, I got the deluxe platter and as soon... More

Most of the clientele comes here for the friendliness and reliability. It's roomy, and a lot of the customers appear to know one another. The food is just OK. I wouldn't make a special trip for the cuisine. But it's not bad enough to discourage me from coming to meet friends or family. The customer demographic here is old and... More

The Mother's Day buffet was super good. Besides the BBQ ribs & chicken that were very yummy, they also had another buffet table with all kinds of appetizers, fruits etc. It was all very delicious. Some at the table also had the pulled pork & said it was fantastic. We ate until we ready to bust at the seams. The... More

Me and my family have been visiting Wolf's BBQ for many years. The ribs and baked beans are truly the best in the country. Instead of a rub, like many BBQ restaurants use, Wolf's uses the sauce during the cooking process so no need to have bottles of BBQ sauce on the table. Rubs are mainly a southern way to... More
