I am a food snob, especially with BBQ and I can honestly say the meat platter for lunch was exceptional with the pulled pork being one of the best i have ever had. The prices are good, not cheap, but you get a lot of food. I did not care for the sliced pork. The sauce selection is good too.... More

Brought our car to Jarrett Gordon Ford, Winter Haven FL for routine service. After the service writer Anthony told us it was going to take a little longer than anticipated I asked if there were any restaurants within walking distance. He said no but he would have their courtesy car takes us anywhere we would like. He suggested Woody's. Great... More

We love the babyback ribs, so typically go on a Tuesday night when they have a babyback dinner special. The ribs are tender, smoky, and sweet. I usually get the house salad as one of my sides - the buttery garlic croutons are made in the restaurant. Our servers are always friendly, and we recently met the new owners. Last... More

I went here because of past visits in the early 90s. The staff was polite but I wasn't thrilled with my food of choice. The pulled pork was cold and the slaw was sweet. The baked beans and the coke was the best part of my meal. Perhaps I should have chosen the ribs. It will do!

My wife and I are repeat customers. Love the food. Great prices. All you can eat chicken on Sunday special is a fantastic deal.

It was my birthday so a friend took me to Woody's to try there all you can eat ribs for $14.99. It was great ribs and 2 choice sides. We had the coleslaw and sweet potato fries also included was the drink. It was very good service was great and best of all we left there full and happy.

Have eaten here for years but evidently new owners who don't care about customer service. Server was a comedian and got order screwed up. We all got partial meals and separate times. Never got 2 sides. Co owner would not address concerns. Server just laughed. Write this place off!

I always go for the smoked turkey sandwich...not on garlic bread. If you are wanting some good southern fried veggies this is the place. The rest of the sides are not true southern made. You must choose a slice of pie they are the real deal.
