Service is always excellent. Food is always good. We go here frequently and are never disappointed. If you want good, local BBQ, go to Woody's. My favorite is the lean brisket sandwich. Very little fat and generous portions.

Woody's is a pretty basic place with a pretty simple menu. They smoke meat and do it well. The meat is tasty and the sides are good. They offer three barbecue sauces, which only differ in spiciness. Unless you have a very sensitive plate, go...More

The ribs are good and the brisket is decent, I really like the jalapeño link. They have a great selection of barbecue sauce on each table. This is a gas station and there is plenty of room inside for large groups. The sides are ok.

The sliced smoked turkey at Woody's is fantastic! I love it with their sweet BBQ sauce! I have friends that love the sliced brisket and pork, too. Smoked chicken halves are also available. Lots of choices in sides as well as banana pudding! Recommend!

We grabbed some smoked brisket and chicken for a family lunch and were very happy with the quality. The BBQ green beans were amazing as well as the banana pudding! Great prices and portions.

You won't be disappointed! The sweet tea is great, the pork loin is fantastic, and the turkey is so moist!

The BBQ meats were really good. My wife and I had brisket, turkey and pork. Kind of odd the way they cut up your meat and wrap it up in a paper before putting it on your tray. Would definitely eat here again.

Found this smoke house by one wrong (right) turn and it was a very good surprise. The turkey and brisket was so tasty and tender. Sauce on the table but you really didn't need it. Long tables with checkered tablecloths. You order at the counter...More
