We went to Oakwood on highway 441 for lunch yesterday. The BBQ was out standing and the service was good. Real down home southern atmosphere. I say go there, give them a try and Oakwood will become your go to place for good BBQ!

Overall, they have good food, at a reasonable price. Would be nice though, I they gave you a pickle or two with your sandwich for a little contrast with the side dish (french fries, etc.) and for a little color "on the plate". As to the atmosphere, customers like to keep their ball caps on, which brings down the otherwise... More

It's been a year since our last visit to this restaurant. Still the same delicious ribs as last year. My wife suggested I try something else on the menu. The ribs are fantastic so I just cannot get myself to try anything else. I ordered the whole rack with baked beans and cheese grits. Wonderful! It comes with Texas toast... More

This is my 3rd time here and the food has been consistently good. Ribs are smokey and sauce is just sweet enough. Prices are reasonable, service has been very good. Had craft beer in frozen mug it was great. Will be coming back here again.

Thanks so much for the nice review. We like to share them with our staff. Chef Sammy, Josie, and Pat represent 35 years with our company and take great care in making sure the ribs are tender and delicious. Our grill-masters finish the deal by charring them up just right. We are so glad that you enjoy them. More

They have the most delicious barbecue ribs! They are so tender and juicy! The sides they offer are different from the standard restaraunt sides. I especially enjoy the roasted corn salad. sam's slaw and the baked beans are also good. Once the crowds come back, you could wait a long time for a table.

I had the grilled chicken this time. I have been here numerous times and every time it has been great. Large portions of meat and choice of sides. Be prepared to take leftovers home. The baked beans and cole slaw are awesome also. You can't go wrong with anything you pick.

We love this place. The main place is on 441 but there is a branch called Oakwood Express on 301 which opened about a year ago. The latter is much smaller but still great. Love their onion rings and sweet potato fries. The regular fries are thick and juicy. Don't expect a fancy place but BBQ is great. Don't know... More
