As a native of Paducah I frequent Backwoods fairly often and usually am not disappointed. Occasionally the BBQ is a bit greasy (I am extremely picky about my BBQ), but usually am not disappointed. I regularly get the pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw on it,...More

Classic southern dry rub bbq with vinegar based sauces, small restaurant. We had the ribs, Pulled pork, and chicken, all excellent. Get the cobbler or pie and ice cream for dessert. Lots of good food, low price.

We stopped in a few nights ago. Had the half rack of ribs. I rolled up my sleeves to not get dirty-completely unnecessary! The meat was so tender it just fell off the bone. It was great without the sauce. I tried the sauce as...More

The sauces are very good but the BBQ is just as average. I had the sliced pork loin, it was dry and tough. Wife had the chopped pork, it was dry and not all that well smoked, we've eaten BBQ in at least 25 states...More

We used trip advisor to find this little family run place. The menu is quite limited but the barbecue acceptable and the sides home made. I had pulled port that was only so-so, but my date had the smoked chicken that was outstanding. Both sandwiches...More
