We've tried them all. Woodchucks makes absolutely the best Dry Rub Ribs at the Jersey shore. A little out of the way on Route 88 and a small rather unassuming place but the food and service is GREAT ! We've been there many times so this is not a one time got lucky review. Never been disappointed by anything on... More

Went there for the first time tonight and we had ribs, both BBQ and dry rub, BBQ chicken and brisket. Everything was very good but the ribs were INCREDIBLE!!!!! Was sad to hear this restaurant has been in my area for 4 years and we had never tried it! We will never cook another rib again. These were the best.

We sit in occasionally and take out from Woodchucks regularly. I love the pulled pork over tossed salad. My other family members love the babyback ribs

A handful of tables available & with limited parking, this BBQ has great food. But you may prefer to take delivery in the Summer as Rita's also shares the lot

We made reservations for 14 people and were treated very well. The place is small and we took up one side of the restaurant but that didn't bother the server. The food was great and the kids were happy. We had the wings, which were very good. Some of us had the ribs,each made differently, all delicious. Some had the... More

Affordable and fun. I took my son here for lunch when we were in town for the day. Large servings and nice choice of sides. The pork ribs were tender and juicy.

I was told about Woodchucks BBQ by a friend and he was raving about it so I had to try it. And it did not disappoint! Everything was very tasty, we got pulled pork, ribs, beans, mac & cheese, cornbread, the works! Reasonably priced and you get a TON of food. I had easily three meals from mine. A must... More
