We drive Highway 60 to South Florida on a regular basis. Looking forward to trying Woodys. The lunch special was a great value. Our server was very nice. Next time I'd ask not to have pickle on my pulled pork. Looked like a good pickle...More

The staff at this restaurant are extremely rude and unprofessional. Stay away if you are looking for good service. We never got to try the food, because the hostess and waitress was too bad to withstand our stay.More

I've eaten at Woody's several times and have never been disappointed. The BBQ is excellent, as are the sides. The all-you-can-eat roasted chicken dinners will fill any appetite and please the palate. The service is always top-notch, as the owners are usually on-site to make...More
