Large menu and many GF choices. We tried a sampler platter of BBQ meats and everything was delicious. Staff was super friendly and helpful; prices and portion sizes were reasonable. Great food, great blues music. We’ll definitely be back.

My partner and our mutual BFF LOVE the food here (especially the ribs), and while they denote GF on items on the menu… I personally feel like the staff isn’t that knowledgeable about Celiacs or what constitutes as cross contamination. Whenever I order mashed potatoes (without gravy) I end up with gravy all over my plate… the stuffed peppers have NEVER made me sick, and the food is good, but I guess it all depends on the day, your wait staff and who’s in the kitchen?

We found this place about 7 or 8 years ago. My wife had ordered from them for my 50th back in 2015 and the food was great. Since then we have eaten in the restaurant once and had 2 or 3 takeout orders from them over the years. A lot of tier stuff is marked GF and my wife and brother weren't bothered by any of what they ate as they are Gluten Intolerant.

This weekend we celebrated my parents 60th wedding anniversary and decided to have a BBQ in the park. After looking at BBQ places near by I saw they were still open. We decided to go with them and were not disappointed! There were 15 of us so the catering would have been too much but on their normal menu, they have a section where you can buy in bulk.

We ordered the two bucket chicken and ribs special, 2lbs a brisket and 2lbs of pulled pork along with Mac&Cheese, Beans and Sweet Tater fries. Everyone LOVED the food!!! The ribs were fall off the bone, melt in your mouth tender, the brisket was also very tender and the pulled pork was delicious. The sides were great too but just to note, the fries do not travel well as we had a shelter at Ellicott Creek park. They were still good, just got a little mushy when they got cold but that is on me. :-)

We have tried other BBQ places over the years and while some are good and others are inconsistent, it is nice to see this place holing true to their standards!!!

My 80+yr old parents had a great time and chowed down on the food as did the rest of the guests. The food made the party complete! I highly recommend BW's to anyone looking to have a catered BBQ!

If you love meat...come here! Haha. I get the ribs and the chicken and both are very good, prepared safely, and you get generous portions of food for a decent price.
