The measure of a BBQ shop is their ribs. I was hesitant to go because we have an excellent BBQ joint right here in Cloudcroft and I thought there was no way it would measure up. I was wrong. The ribs, brisket and pulled pork were all excellent. The sides were good, beans and potato salad. Nice place, out of... More

We stopped in for lunch while visiting Los Alamos, Their location is a little hard to find but worth the trip. It is your standard BBQ and very tasty. Good BBQ and reasonable price. It was just what we were looking for, worth it for us. Good service also.

Carolina sandwich was good. Rest of stuff was better this time, but chicken was just verging on being too dry. Takes a bit of time to get order

Excellent barbeque that I crave. The chicken is my favorite but I love everything I have tried. They are not close to my work, but they have such fast service that I can actually make it back to work in time.

Very good barbeque...the only place in town for that. I find the menu confusing. It is up on a board on the wall...allow time to study it. Small place but nice. Very clean.

Bob's Bodacious BBQ isn't hard to find, it is though a bit out of the way for a tourist. The building is tucked away in a little strip mall behind a gas station so there is adequate parking. Inside there are about 20+ small tables. It is a clean and unpretentious place for BBQ. There is a large menu board... More

I am very thankful we have a bbq place in Los Alamos. I think the food is very good and have enjoyed several visits for lunch and dinner. The prices do not seem high on the menu but for the amount of meat you get it might be viewed as as such.

Brisket was a little dry. Wings were wet, but OK. Sausage was good. Nothing was bad, but its hard to be impressed coming from Texas.

Bob's Bodacious has stood the test of time here in Los Alamos. While not "award winning" like you'll see at other BBQ joints, the menu here is traditional and reliable. The food is always the perfect temperature to chow down. Lots of options to keep the carnivores happy. However the hours are weekday only, open for the lunch rush then... More
