Quality Proteins

We put a lot of time, effort, and energy into our products and our smoker rarely takes a day off. Using a combination of oak and hickory, we slow-smoke at 225° to guarantee food remains tender and flavorful.

O.M.G. Desserts

Words cannot describe our love for peanut butter and chocolate, and cheesecake and banana pudding. So understandably, we had to create these versions of pies… By far some of our greatest accomplishments.

Our Story

Big Worm’s BBQ is the brainchild of Corey LaFlesh, a.k.a. Big Worm. His dream was to open a barbecue restaurant and bring his food to the masses. Upon hearing this dream, and having first-hand knowledge of Worm’s culinary acumen, his friend was Tim Bartnick decided it was necessary to make it a reality. Thus, a collaborative partnership was created, and out of love for both food and flavor, Big Worm’s BBQ was born.

The main emphasis of Big Worm’s is quality over quantity. The menu is modest in size to ensure that more time, effort and, energy is carefully put into each item. Consequently, the smoker rarely takes a day off. Using a combination of oak and hickory, proteins are slow smoked at 225 to guarantee food remains tender and flavorful.

What makes Big Worm’s BBQ unique are the flavors. Using a secret family recipe, passed down from one generation to another, Worm’s signature sauce has a flavor that is completely original. Also, the sides and desserts are far from ordinary. From sweet bacon coleslaw to banana pudding cheesecake, these are items you won’t find anywhere else.
