Woodlands has a wide variety of food but their bbq and wings are fantastic. Be prepared to sit on picnic table benches. The lemonade is fantastic and they have a full bar to order from as well.

People drive from miles around to visit this humble establishment and be served traditional and delicious BBQ on paper plates and napkins. Offering warm surroundings and entertainment, it's well worth a visit. Very reasonably priced
