Stopped in at Oakwood for late afternoon snack, the place was jumping, there were table available, the place smelled of BBQ, love that smell, the waitress was nice, prompt, took my order, brought me my coffee, and that is where the excitement ended. My coffee was burned, ask for more, never got more coffee, my order took twenty minutes, it... More

This is by far our favorite place for BBQ ribs! We have NEVER had a bad meal here and we have been eating at Oakwood for over 10 years.

I have eaten here dozens of times over the years and it stays stable. Clean place and friendly staff. The food isn't bad for the prices but I will admit there is similar fare at other places in the area that outshines Oakwood at lower prices. The half baby back rack and chicken special is a good choice when they... More

I've been many times over as we always take our visiting company to Oakwood for ribs. Everyone says they are the best ribs they've ever had and these people are from all over the US. Plan on a wait as it is crowded all times of the day. We go by at 3PM and the parking lot is full! The... More

Great Baby Back ribs and sides. Friendly efficient staff. They often have a "rib special" and you can safe a buck or two. Restaurant is clean and the prices are reasonable.

This place right on 441 has specials on racks of baby back ribs at a very affordable price. I personally cannot say that these were the best I ever had but they were tender and fell off the bone which is not always the case. Friendly service and overall a good meal.

Thank GeorgeO1
