Buddha’s BBQ has roots in Dayton, Ohio and Talladega, Alabama. With a limited menu of BBQ Ribs, Waymon “Big Neal” McNeal Sr. fired up his BBQ Pit in Hamilton, Ohio in the summer of 1950. Followed by a move to Dayton, Ohio in the 1960’s, Big Neal continued his tradition of quality, hickory-smoked meats that were sold out of a neighborhood storefront (Speedway Market, Route 4) in Jefferson Township where news of Big Neal’s signature BBQ became a staple as it spread across the entire city of Dayton.
The success of Big Neal’s Tummy Rub’n Good BBQ continued to flourish in Dayton from the 1960’s through the 1990’s. During this time, Big Neal began to train his son, Waymon “Buddha” McNeal Jr., in the family business, teaching the importance of maintaining quality, consistency and great customer service.
Today Waymon “Buddha” McNeal Jr. is continuing the family tradition. “Buddha’s BBQ” continues to thrive as it expands through various cities in Wisconsin. The success of the company comes from the patronage of loyal customers. A message from Buddha, “I believe that Buddha’s BBQ will continue to wow customers as long as we continue to serve great quality meats, offer excellent customer service and continue to win you over one Tummy Rub’n Good experience at a time.”
Buddha’s BBQ serves a variety of southern style cooked meat such as, but not limited to pork ribs, rib tips, pulled pork, Mississippi steak, smoked chicken all with the option of the best homemade sides of baked beans and coleslaw.
Enjoy and God bless!
