For good ribs & any other BBQ you cannot beat Oakwood. They will pile on the food and the prices are not bad.

Good food and nice staff. My only complaint is that they changed the brand of sausages they used about a year or two ago and the new ones are not nearly as good. I think they have tried a couple of new brands but they...More

Thanks for the feedback. Sorry that you felt the portion was small. Most of our guests rave about portion, price, and value but we evidently failed in your case. Again, sincere apologies.

The barbecue is great, whether it is ribs, chicken,pork, or beef. We like to go to their location on 301 for lunch where a sizable pulled pork or sliced beef sandwich comes with a side and drink for $8.50. The sides are OK but the...More
