REVIEWS OF Bad Brads BBQ IN Michigan

Shane Trandell

The BBQ is very good so there's usually a wait around dinner time. The service is on par with any busy restaurant. The servers are friendly but extremely busy so try to be mindful of that when ordering, especially if you are in a large group. It's a BBQ joint so unelss you're vegan, there's something for everyone on the menu. The meal is worth the money.

Sha-Tova Parks

Great food and service! First time having pig candy it was good. Waitress was very nice and kept check on us. And our food was out fast.

Marie Barnes

Delicious food. The meal portions are generous so that you will not go away hungry. My family also enjoyed the cow and pig meat diagram wall art. I plan to suggest that we meet here again. Location is very convenient.

Michael Lis

Bomb. Can't go wrong and nice having a local place with high quality!

David Y

Wow. I just had the Brad's BBQ Burger. It was literally one of the best burgers that I've ever had. Absolutely delicious combination of flavors! If you are a classic BBQ fan, you should treat yourself to one.

Corie Napolitan

Great food. Waitress was newer but not one complaint. She was very helpful and knowledgeable about the menu. Blueberry basil mule was very good. Recommend this place especially if you have never been. Ask for the spicier sauce and sweet mustard if not offered, very tasty.

Mike Hathaway

Great food! Wish there were more brisket sammich options. Beer prices are pretty steep.

Zac Sanborn

Good quality, good barbeque, great atmosphere. Love their sides (Mac and cheese and chili cheese grits) and their brisket.

Holly Slay

Good food. Fast service. $57 for lunch was kinda expensive.

Kalen Bentley

Possibly the best BBQ I've ever had. Great service and excellent atmosphere

Michael Raschke

Great food, reasonably priced, and a great staff of people. Also enjoyed the very art inspired architecture, and graffiti on the pillars.

Land Safe

Great food But lots of bugs becausecause of outside seating.

Antonio Pena

Great start, as I had Family in from Georgia and we were given a great booth for Dinner with NO WAIT ! We ordered what everybody liked off the menu. I have Very Good experience with more than one Bad Brad's. Everyone was Very Happy with their meal plus the Service was Great.

Alicia Welch

Greeter was a little frazzled.. but pleasent enough

Craig Jackson

The food was good. But the prices were a bit higher than I expected.

A Google User

Always delicious! (They have The Best Fries too!)

Bob D

The ribs and brisket are some of the best I've ever had. Truly a great dining experience

Megan Walter

Great food. I love their BBQ. I'm working my way through their sandwich list. I had the Eddie Cheddar, it might be my new favorite. The staff was very attentive. We were sat quickly and had great service! Loved the beer selection.

Robin F

Fast and friendly service. BBQ chicken nachos are fantastic.

Paul Boes

It's a Texas/southern style bbq joint. They have the usual 4 sauces. Three are mixed to make a spicy sauce that tastes better than the other three individually. The bbq rub on the house made chips was excellent. The greens were outstanding. The smoked Turkey was good and the portion was a decent size. Pepsi cola

Nick Diepenhorst

I tried the wings, ribs, brisket, mac and cheese and side salad. Unsweetened tea for the drink. Everything was just average. Nothing to write home about. 3 stars. Service at the bar was good.

bob tawse

Hands down the best BBQ I have had in along time! Great Service from Alexis Sweet tea was delicious

Emilly Bond

We had never been to Bad Brads, and went for dinner to try out the food (we are looking for a caterer for our wedding). We were blown away by every part of our meal. Definitely helped that they have my favorite local beer on the list, as well! We are pretty sure that we will calling them for our big day!

Crys Abidin

It was great even bought one of their mason jars.

Ashley Ponceflores

Chicken was extremely dry. The BBQ ribs are always great

Terri Snowden

This is one of the best Bbq places, I have had in my area!!

Nancy McNally

Favorite restaurant for BBQ! Always order the brisket, tender and flavorful. They have 4 sauces to choose from. My favorite is the house blend 321. Servers are always nice.

Melissa Russell

This place was awesome! The decor, service and food all wonderful. My husband, kids and I all loved everything served. The sweet potatoes and coleslaw we're just as amazing as the barbeque. I wish we lived closer, but I suppose if it was too convenient then that could be a bad thing too!

Jennifer Kozicki

This place was amazing! Just went for dinner. There were 2 of us and we ordered the pig candy (which was the most amazing bacon I've ever had) and also we shared the 'you pick 3 meats and 2 sides'. The brisket and pork sausage was really good. The turkey was good but nothing special. Overall, fast service and delicious food, just wish there was a location closer to where we lived.

Paradox Shift

Great food as always but the young wait staff isn't very attentive. Been here over 6 times and there has always been room for improvement. For example, I went in today and there was nobody at the entrance to greet you. Instead, there were four kids talking around the corner, where the patio entrance is. Not a big deal but this happens almost every time I come here and for the somewhat premium price, this is my only complaint/opportunity for improvement.

Robert Parrish

I was shocked by prices and up charges for brisket meals. Costs are increasing every where but I found it excessive to stop in here for two meals, two beers and some chicken wings was 80 bucks with tip. The meals where excellent. The chicken wings where laughable. 6 and 2 if them by weight where extreamly small. It was good but not worth the cost. There are better places given the cost. Service was meahhhhhh. Young kid...

Lorah Cameron

The food here is phenomenal! Definitely get the Pig Candy. The service is also exceptional. If you will be going on a weekend evening it is best to call in advance and get put on a waiting list.

K Risa

The food is good and the staff is kind. I especially like the build-your-own tacos. The atmosphere is also cool.

Ronald Normandin

Awesome food great staff

Sean Nagler

One of the best BBQ places anywhere! Lunch is a pretty good deal as well

Kyle Garcia

The food was amazing, and the server (Heather) was fenominal. Couldnt have asked for a better waitress. She was always there when we needed her and made sure drinks were filled and had a positive attitude and answered any questions we had. Definitely a 20 out of 10.

Jim Papatheodore

This place is amazing! Awesome atmosphere, great food and fast! If you're looking for great BBQ, this is the place!

Adam Anderson

They messed up my order by putting extra meat on my nacho they put chicken on my pork nacho so it had both. They didn’t tell me they charged me extra for the mistake until I called them out on it, then the manger told me I ordered my food wrong. I haven’t come back to this place since they had a major fruit fly issue, so bad that I had to fish one out of my beer! Can’t say I’ll ever be back again.

Larry Sanborn

One of the better, possibly best BBQ places in Oakland County. The meat is high quality, it is prepared right and they are pretty fast. The place was full, so service wasn’t as fast as usual this time but over all they do it right. Never too much of a wait, yet they always have a full parking lot. $18.96+tip for two to eat. Decent value as well. We took home left overs.

Michael Coulter

Are here while visiting from Texas. Food is pretty good and the service was excellent. Really enjoyed the 321 sauce

Roxanne Silvernail

Good food but small portions for price.

Danny Iseler

This BBQ food was better than Milford's BBQ restaurant. Both are great but Brad's is the best. The Uptown appetizer way absolutely amazing !!!!!

Haley Leisz

Best bbq I’ve ever had! Everything was delicious. I like that they had all the sauces at the table so you can try them all. The bun for the sandwiches was even amazing. Nothing here was disappointing!

Heather Stone

Everything was great! Our server was awesome and made a lot of good recommendations. The candied bacon was top notch.

Kevin Baggett

I love BBQ/southern food,one of the few places that has greens,grits and sweet potato mash,delish!

Dean Chambos

Best bbq, unique atmosphere, friendly and efficient service

Mary Jo Burchart

Love the food and the service. Of all their sauces, my favorite is the 321. The sliced brisket melts in your mouth it is so tender.

Steve Oksienik

Can I give this 6 stars?? This place is phenomenal. Let's start with the pork candy which is smoked bacon with caramelized sugar. It's like pure heaven! The smoked wings are also fantastic. All of the meat was superb. I'm a pulled pork guy, but the brisket was also killer. The sides we're all great as well. It's not cheap. BBQ places never are. But the food is outstanding and it's definitely worth the price. I can't wait to go back. Highest recommendation.

Charles Wheeler

Love this place, but keep the times of service updated please... if you close at 9 then change that stuff online... it’s easy.

M Foster

Went to the Orion location tonight. Kelly was my server. She was amazing. Actually had a manager introduce herself tonight. I'm pretty sure her name was Sherry She told me 3 times. I should remember because she tried lol. Food was amazing service was on point. Loved my time there.

Mario O. Martínez Ordaz

Full rack, coleslaw and Mac N Cheese... That's everything you need to be the happiest person in Michigan. Honestly, the best ribs I have ever eaten. The service is excellent as well and the prices are reasonable. A must-go place if you visit Great Lakes Crossing Outlets.

william polasek

Can't wait to go to another Bad Brads location. Never had BBQ this good before.

Dan M

Fantastic baked beans (extra smokey) and the best smoked turkey ive ever had at a restaurant (incredibly tender and moist). Try their bbq nachos and chili!

James Sandison

It is a good BBQ place. And good for drinks. The service was ok. But I have only been here once. Maybe after another try they can change my mind.

Red Miller

Okay, I would have never said, "Go to Michigan if you want good barbeque." That is until I went to Bad Brad's! Jeez their food is incredible! The wait staff is great. The portions are more than plenty. If you go, make sure you get the "Pig Candy." Trust me; you will wonder how your life was complete before having it. Overall, great place to eat. The food is really great. The pictures are of the sculptures out front, which are also very cool!

Rob Winter

BBQ nachos and "The Hammer" sandwich were superb! Drinks cold and refreshing! Patio table was Devine! Our server, Lexi was amazingly great! perfect dining experience! Memories are made like this! I'll be back!

Roseanne Jewell

8/7/19 - 6-7pm. Treated my friend to birthday dinner. Our young waiter (?name) was patient, kind, accurate & helpful. If I were rating only his service, I would have given 5 stars. My biggest dissatisfaction at Bad Brads Lk Orion is the width of the booths. 42 inches is a pretty good guess of the width of their smaller booths. You cannot relax and talk to the person sitting across from you. We had to lean in to hear and be heard. We could have sat at a table, but have always prefered the comfort of a booth seat. The quantities were great, the sides very good. The meats were a bit dry, and the ribs had little meat on them.

Jill Galsterer

Love this place! Always a great choice for a night out. Only reason I gave 4 stars was because the ribs we ordered during our most recent visit were not the best cuts of meat, but everything else was delicious!

Brandon Janness

Ribs are delicious! First time here as I'm not from the area, but had a great experience! They have a huge outdoor patio for eating, which we used to enjoy a beer while waiting for our table but they have a great set up. Our server was great, very friendly and knowledgeable. Food was priced right, but the beers were a bit on the higher side for your average beer menu. You must try the candy bacon, it's unlike something I've ever had! The spicy BBQ sauce is where it's at! Would definitely come back when I'm in town again.

Corey B

If you want great BBQ, look no further! Food was awesome and the sweet mustard sauce is boss. They also have a bad brad beer which was good as well. Only reason for 4 stars was toward service. Maybe they where short staffed or it really was that busy. I still tipped 20% because staff was very polite and food was great just wish my server checked up on us more.

Jeremy Gould

Food and service were both good. Burnt Ends were great, however the corn tortillas overpowered the meat flavor though so I skipped them and enjoyed the meat as is and how it is supposed to be eaten anyhow. The chicken and waffles were a unique spin and very good however a little too much syrup. Chicken nachos we're good as well.

Kelsey Burns

Delicious food! Love the BBQ nachos! My mom loves the garlic broccoli and sweet potato mash as well. Always leave full and loved the food.

Madalyn Zells

Food is always incredible. Love coming here for their lunch specials.

Tyler Mendrek

Excellent barbecue and pretty cool atmosphere.

Bradley S

I am still disappointed that they don’t provide me free food based upon my first name

Dave H

Fantastic food! The cooking is wonderful and the staff was kind and courteous. Went in at 5:00 on a Saturday night. Was almost immediately seated in a comfortable booth. Service is quick and punctual. The only reason I'm not giving five stars is because of the prices and the quantities. Now paying 18 or $20 for a meal That's well made is not a shock. However receiving a portion that I would say is The same or less than a chain restaurant like Applebee's is not something I think should happen. The portions were decent especially if you're going to get the ribs. However my wife and I decided to get a burger and pulled pork. both are portions were very small and considering hers cost $14 I thought they should have been a little bit more. But don't let this deter you! This is definitely a wonderful restaurant that is well-managed and clean. I will definitely be paying future visits to this location! If you enjoy good barbecue you will enjoy this location!

Andrew Sparks

Excellent food! You won't leave there hungry that's for sure. Nice atmosphere and our waitress was great. Definitely will go back

chris barger

Little pricey but good food

Shelly Rau

We always have good food here! Try the pig candy or the chowder. Sit on the patio in season and check out the brick work. See if you can find the tv remote!

Berenice C

Service is amazing! The pig candy is a must when it comes to appetizers! Overall a wonderful experience.

Jay Hayden

Very good barbecue,awesome architecture

Scott Meyers

This place never disappoints. We love the patio. Great service and food.

Chavon Nierenberger

Great menu, tasty food, good service, cool atmosphere, nice location. The owner put some good time and effort into this joint. My favorite place to eat when visiting family around the area.

Paul Thompson

Good food, not the best BBQ I've had but that's personal opinion. Theirs is pretty good. Good beer selection, outdoor patio (in summer). Worth checking out for a good meal.

Joe Adamowicz

Good food and great service. The ribs are excellent!

Ruth Griffith

1st time here and food was great, as well as service. Only objection was the pizza. Thin crust and looked good from outside but center of pizza, crust is very soggy and not appealing at all. Have had this style of pizza at other restaurants and crusts crunch and texture maintained. Need to correct this or consider replacing item.

Amanda DeGain

People really hype this place up. Its good but im from Texas so..its okay. Honestlynm slows is still better. But this place is WAY better then lockharts

dean rose

Very fatty brisket, a good 1/3 inch fat on every piece of brisket, and the parts that weren't fat were very spongey in texture, took off bun to add sauce one look and nope, didn't eat it.

Paul Wesley

Love this place. Good BBQ and service at a reasonable price. Visit with no worries.

Jimmy Pro

Very good food and the atmosphere is awesome.

Lou Judge

The best bbq I've had at a restaurant

Robert Blood

First time there. We'll be back! Everything we ordered was great! Service was great too!

Scott Bergin

Smoked wings are awesome. Nice outdoor seating with misters to cool it down. Wine selection is weak. Pulled pork didn't have a lot of flavor. They were out of ribs.

Benoit BARRE

Great place. Meat is so good. Ribs are incredible. This is for me the best BBQ. Try the pig candy to start....

Thomas and Katherine Cipielewski

Brad Brad's.....service was excellent. Our food was not very good. Don't get the sweet ice tea.....its terrible!

Lauren Meyers

I wish there was a Bad Brads in my town! Best BBQ I’ve ever had. Can’t wait to travel back to the area so we can eat here again.

Gentry J. Pitts

They overcharged my card. My bill was only $67.31, and I even question that now. But when I looked at my bank statement I was charged over $73 and some change. That's theft and when I call it better get handled quickly. I left a tip in cash so I know that wasn't the issue. It's a damn shame that I have to deal with this kind of mess. I'll never be back to the place in Lake Orion again!!! Ever!!!! Thieves!!!

Carol H

My dinner was good. Husband had a hair in his potatoes & his pork was cool tasting. They did give him a new meal though.

Jeep Jess

Such good food and service was top notch.

Scott Craig

When I first walked in I parked right up from the awesome BBQ smells. Wow!! Best smelling restaurant in Oakland County. I was there earlier than most (4:35pm) because it can get crowded there. After ordering our food arrived quick. I thought they must be giving us someone else's order since it was so fast. But it was indeed our order. I got the 2 meat platter with pulled pork, sliced brisket, mac n cheese and pit beans. It was ALL very good. Prices are also very reasonable.

Debbie Swaisgood

YUM YUM YUM! My husband's new favorite restaurant

Beverly Lund

Cant say enough great atmosphere, fantastic food. Had the Salmon best I have ever had.!!!! Fantastic for family wonderful selection for all. Our service was very good.

Emily Gordon

Our favorite BBQ place! The brisket is the best around and the cornbread is always perfectly baked.

matt castillo

Always great food and outdoor seating...

Titus Schafer

The names says it all...BAD brads bbq

Mike Swaisgood

Great choices! Delicious food! Cornbread and Sweet Tea a big bonus!

Sabrina 215

They have amazing food. I'm positive that everything on their menu is delicious. Still making my way through it. A little pricey but it's BBQ place so what would you expect. The service has been great there out of the times I've eaten there. Highly for those BBQ people

JS Perry

Honestly some of the best Bbq I've ever had in my life! Their "pig candy" is something to write home about!!! I've lived in the South and know what great BBQ is and somehow they've topped it... I give them two thumbs, eight fingers and every toe up!!! Lol!!!!! It's seriously that good!!! Correct me if I'm wrong....


Mix feelings. We used to love this place. The last time my husband and I were there, we got very sick. We are very disappointed but for now we won't be coming back. Maybe in a couple of months. We will give it another try.

ShadowFyr SixtyTwo

Brad Brad's is consistently flavorful, made from scratch food, constant customers, friendly staff that welcome you. If you love BBQ, try it!

Mark McGreevy

Update since my daughter's graduation, when I used the 23 mile road location: I have been to their Clarkston/Lake Orion location many times since. Great atmosphere. Indoor and outdoor seating available. Expect to wait on weekends unless you can wait to eat later, 7:30 ish, it begins to clear. It's a nice place to gather so people tend to linger. Highly recommend pig candy as an appetizer! Food never disappoints, good selection of drafts, you won't be disappointed.

Courtney Dorough

Good food, wish they brought back their fried chicken.

Gmail user

Great food. Reasonable prices. Great people.

Carol Wayne

This Bad Brads has improved significantly since the last time we were there. Food was good, staff was great.

RyanThe Motor-CityRipper

Very friendly, real good expirence and very laid back. Will be going back

Kayla Jarosz

Our waitress Rachael was phenomenal and both mine and my boyfriends dinner were amazing. We will be back for sure!

Enedelia Lucio

Great expirience from great staff and the food blew me out if the water way better than i expected definetly going back

John Maat

Great service , great food as always must try pig candy awesome, all food is good

Marc Poulin

One of My Favorite Barbecue Restaurants! All the different cuts and types of meat are tasty. The selection of sauces is fantastic, from mild to hot, sweet or tangy. During the summer the wait can be long but you always pickup.

Morgan Senick

Kind of a cool atmosphere. However, the chicken was not good lacked flavor of all kind. The service was not good as well. Took 20 minutes just to receive the check. The fries are ok but be aware that they are just like the ends of fries. Maybe it would be a better experience with different staff??? Not willing to find out after this experience. Way over priced for lack of flavor

Nick Navarre

Not only great food, but they provide great service too! Our waitress was caught up in a large group and another server helped her out by taking us for her which kept things running efficiently. They ran out of what I had ordered and Dean, our waiter, openly helped me pick something different and made the order special by adding a little extra to the order! 110% customer satisfaction! It is great to know you will not leave this place unsatisfied no matter the circumstances!

Maryla Swierz

First time at Bad Brads BBQ last night. My server (Casie) did a fantastic job. Gave great insight on the menu, and what is popular here. Food was great, especially the BBQ Nachos, we well we the atmosphere!! The manager also stopped by to see how everything was going. Was very prompt at assisting all her staff. Overall I can say I will be coming back!!

Steve Hyer

Food was delicious. Service was great. I've had the food at parties and this was the first time I've been in the restaurant. Highly recommended! Brisket was great. Pulled pork was great. Tons of great appetizers and sides!

Steve Napier

Great atmosphere and even better food. This is the best barbecue I have ever had. Make sure to get pig candy

Dave Foster

After a drunken night of Top Golf, we found ourselves at Bad Brad's. It was just a bit before closing time, but the staff was still ridiculously friendly, and helpful. We all sampled one another's plates, and I couldn't believe how good everything was. The pulled pork, and brisket were my favorites. Oh, and the candied bacon is something you truly have to experience, but there wasn't a single thing I didn't love. Cost was very reasonable, as well. Go. Try it. You won't likely be disappointed.

Bobby Dye

I did take out on this occasion. Very friendly on the phone and in person. The food was scolding hot and phenomenal. All of it was amazing. The meat, the sides and the service in my opinion would all be deemed top notch. Cant wait to eat in house next time.

Miss Nurse

We decided to try Brads for the first time yesterday and the wait was moderate food was ready as scheduled however, I ordered the 3 meat meal the brunt ends was little fatty cubes my first bite I spat it out because my mouth was full of grease. I thought brunt ends was charred tips of rib meat not charred fat maybe I misunderstood. The Collard greens weren't that bad but, they had black eyed peas mixed in them maybe that was a mistake we also ordered a slab of ribs the flavor wasn't bad but, they had a layer of fat between the meaty part not on the back. Maybe this is a new trend of eating fatty meat and we are out of the loop however, we will not be returning.

Allie Browe

Love the outdoor seating. Excellent pulled chicken, but the the rest of their food is hit or miss.

Orlando Williams Jr.

Good BBQ & terrific sides! The Chili Cheese Grits are amazing!

Susan Thompson

On the plus side: The meats are very well cooked which is the most important part of BBQ. The mac and cheese side is wonderful if you like garlic. My husband said the pit beans were very good as well. Service was great. Only 3 stars because: The BBQ sauces were not very good. If I go again I would bring my own. I am picky about BBQ but I thought the sauces weren't even as good as commercial sauces in the grocery store. Spicy isn't really spicy and the sweet was sweet as syrup. They also seemed watered down in general. The corn bread is terrible... as sweet as cake but had peppers in it which just didn't go together. The sausage had too much spice, fennel maybe, it was overpowering and the sausage wasn't enjoyable.

Craig Blogger

This place was pretty good. Love the aesthetic of the restaurant and the staff seemed friendly. The fries and BBQ chili was great. Unfortunately the BBQ Chicken Pizza I was looking forward too was extremely salty. I couldn't even finish a single slice.

John Seabrooks

The best barbecue I've ever had and I have been here 3 times and I recommend to anyone and everyone come

Keri Banar

Love this place!!! Awesome food, great service and cool atmosphere!

Jack Ridenour

Most delicious brisket in the United states is served there. I wish they shipped out. Being from south Texas, that's how I can get it again,

Steve Johns

Very good food! Servers are always nice, give great recommendations. Great lunch spot.

Chris Fisher

Awesome food. Everything we had was delicious. Friendly knowledgeable staff. Will be returning again soon.

Kevin Cannon

Too bad the food isn’t worthy of the great building and ambience. The ribs were dry and had no flavor, turkey was cold, sausage mushy inside and brisket fatty. We so wanted to like this place because of the cool vibe.

Kayla Jones

Always have a great experience here. Food quality is consistent. Love half-off Tuesdays, such a great deal! My family loves going here, one of our favorite restaurants.

Jody Wilson

The food is excellent and our service has always been awesome! The sliced brisket is so tender and the Turkey Growler is my favorite. They don't have mashed potatoes that's a bummer and I really like the dirty rice but that was seasonal I believe. Definitely a favorite to dine at for lunch or dinner.

Frederick Roeder Jr

Great place to eat and pretty darn good eats. We have been there a few times now and no complaints so far.

Jeff Tuskan

Our son goes to college locally and Brad's was recommended by the front desk at our hotel. We have been there twice now and have not been disappointed. The brisket was juicy and tender, the smoked turkey is excellent, and the pulled pork was tasty. All the meats have a good flavor. Get the Pig Candy if you go!

Johnathan Matodobra

The best bbq around. Reasonable prices. The same price or maybe even less pricey for quality food vs Applebee’s or Chili’s

Scott R

This place never dissapoints. Good Craft Beer selection. The smoked turkey is the best thing on the menu, other than the Pig Candy. If you don't know what Pig Candy is then you have unfinished business in this world and should remedy that by going there.

Jesse Ferguson

The best smoked wings around. Ribs were also fall off the bone delicious.

Andrew Burkhart

Food was good, accommodated a party of twelve with little wait.

Mike Baldarotta

Love bad Brad's...quick service and good food

Marie Morales

Omg this food is to die for the candy bacon is a must, staff is super nice will definitely be going back.

Ken Beierlein

Good food and service, pig candy is a must try appetizer

Jordan Dennis

The best pulled chicken I've ever had. Definitely the their specialty.


Food was ok and much to expensive for the taste. Very nice lively atmosphere though.

Sanket Bagalkoti

Surprisingly good amount of vegiterian food. Prices are a little high for the quantity but the quality is good.

Kevin Spencer

Go here once, just to check out the interior/exterior. Come back again to enjoy the excellent BBQ! Beef, pork, chicken and turkey; all excellent & excellent sides, too. I recommend without hesitation. My dining companions commented that the beer price was a little steep, but my H2O was fine!

D Mod

The food was good (I had a ribeye) and the staff were pleasant. While it didn't raise the bar as far as bbq is concerned, it was better than average. I would however suggest that if you decide to go, do not do so from 4-6pm, as there is construction right in front of the place and during rush hour, traffic is horrible as a result, and the food was not so outstanding as to make dealing with the frustration of sitting in traffic for 30 mins to go the last mile of the drive just to get there. If you go when traffic is not very heavy, it is worth the trip, but if you are looking to eat dinner at a bbq restaurant, during rush hour, I would recommend that you choose somewhere else, because at that time of day, the traffic that you have to battle is not worth the hassle it takes to get there.

Tony Collins

I live in the bbq-rich south and was up visiting family, this is the real thing. Delicious pulled pork and juicy smoked turkey. Don't miss the garlic broccoli and the pig candy. Good craft beer selection (Alaskan Amber, one of my favorites, and Bell's Two Hearted and Oberon). Great staff. Go eat there.

josh holland

Drove by here a few times and every time I said I needed to try it. Well, i finally decided to go with a group of 4 of us. We got the burnt pork belly as an appetizer, it was pretty good. We all got a 2 meat plate. I got double beef brisket because I love beef brisket. The flavor was pretty horrible. From all the reviews that I read about this place, people seem to thoroughly enjoy the food. I'm not sure if it was a bad day or what but the amount of smoke flavor that was on the brisket was overpowering and downright inedible. I mentioned something to the waitress and she said it's always like that and people love it. I ended up eating a few bites and didnt take the leftovers. Another person got ribs and pulled pork, they said the ribs were fairly dry and the pulled pork was just "okay". We were all very disappointed with our experience at bad Brad's and will not return for another visit.

James Auger

Best BBQ I've had North of Memphis (and better than most of that too). Absolutely top notch.

Kylia Maksay

Was ok nothing special. Was like any other bbq joint

Cristine N.

This place is amazing! I was in a group of 20 celebrating a friend's birthday. Our waiters were on top of everything and the food was excellent. I plan on going back again. Next time I'm hoping to be able to sit outdoors and eat in their patio section. The grounds are really beautiful. There are quite a few metal sculptures and there's even a pretty little pond.

dnicious turksdesserts

Really good BBQ restaurant one of the best I've been to

Bill Luchow

Little wait but came in around 6 pm. Excellent meal and service .

John Baldauf

Clean. Nice looking. Good portions. Fair price. Smoke flavor a bit more "gentle" / "weaker" than I like it. Looked very new.

Kim Loudan

Great food nice ambience nice staff will be back

Jamie Nelson

Updating my rating from 3 to 5 stars after my most recent visit. Decided to come back and give Bad Brad's another try and we were not disappointed. Lauren was our server, she was very helpful, polite, attentive & patient (I couldn't decide what I wanted to eat). The Moscow mules we're excellent. I got a pulled pork sandwich with their homemade chips (yum) I added a side of coleslaw and Mac and cheese. The Mac & cheese is to die for!! My husband got the burnt ends, coleslaw and corn bread. The corn bread and butter is delicious!! We had to order extra to go. Everything was absolutely phenomenal. And I'm so happy we decided to give it another try, because we were pleasantly surprised. Thank you Lauren for your excellent service! We will be back again next time we're in town.

The service is terrible the few times I've been here, very rude standoffish people. Food has been cold when I ordered carryout even though I had to wait for it. For the price I do not recommend.

Best barbeque I have ever eaten!

The BBQ ribs were very tender. And al the signature sauces was great. My Husband and I wish we had the collard greens and Jalapeno corn bread to bring home. It was delicious.

Wonderful good

Too much fake lemon in the sweet tea makes it taste like canned Lipton. Tacos were pretty good needed more toppings less meat. Wings are good if you like heavy smoke flavor. Mac and Cheese was most disappointing as it was one flavor...garlic and way too much. Chips are very tasty.
