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 and self serve soda, utensils. I would recommend for anyone who likes smokehouse food.

Phil here, me and the Misses stopped for BBQ at Woody's. They have a nice menu selection of entrees and your standard sides. The brisket was pretty good, and you have the option of lean or moist brisket, more fat or less fat. Both are good, and depending on your taste I recommend the moist brisket. I had the loaded...

Don't let the gas station out front scare you away. Great BBQ, service was fast and folks were very nice.. Sliced Beef sandwich was awesome.

This is a very casual place that doesn't have a large menu or wait staff. It's just good, smoked meat. The in-between brisket sandwich is my go to meal at Woody's; I think it's the best in the area. Their sweet tea is pretty amazing, too.

The beef brisket we ordered for our company party was perfect, Very tender and moist. Wasn't sure how much to get but they knew exactly how much to feed a hungry staff. When I picked it up at the drive thru, everything we needed was loaded for us ready to go. Plates, dinnerware, pickles, onions, BQ sauce, etc. The bread... More

Fantastic, tender, moist , smoked turkey! Always great. Though everyone loves their brisket and pork, I enjoy the turkey every time and highly recommend it! Service is always fast, pleasant and accurate!

We usually carry out but eating inside is also enjoyable with plenty of seating. We love the "grab and go" special with the BBQ chopped beef sandwich, side, and a drink. All of the sides are great. The baked beans have a wonderful smoky flavor and the potato salad is homemade. We also will get half a chicken special with... More
