Woodlands BBQ has been a favorite for local and tourist alike that I have been visiting since the 1980's. Rustic atmosphere and great BBQ pork, ribs, chicken and brisket.

Love the barbecue pulled pork. Casual dining and a fun place to eat with good music to go along with it all.

We went here on vacation and it was wonderful. Was told there was a fifteen minute wait but only waited for five. They were very baby friendly, as I had my 10 month old in tow. Friendly server and delicious food! Will definitely recommend to...More

We enjoyed our visit, but was underwhelmed by the sliced BBQ plate. The BBQ was dry and not particularly tasty. My wife had a 1/2 BBQ chicken which was excellent and far better than mine. They had music (It was Thursday night) which was fun....More

Hush puppies are genuine deal, hot sauce suitably spicy, ribs delicious. Atmosphere is correct for barbecue, with benches and wooden tables. Very busy mid afternoon on Sunday, but service was fine.

Heat BBQ and good selection of beer. Lots of parking and relaxed atmosphere. Music on weekend evenings. Friendly owners and great wait staff.

Typical barbecue joint, but offers Mexican options for those who are not BBQ fans. I has sliced brisket -tender and tasty. Got an order of jumbo wings, and they were huge, so no false advertising. I would go back.
