We have been here many times. The have friendly and fast help. The menu is very extensive menu including all meals. My wife loves the pork chops and they have a salad bar that is included. It is reasonably priced and you get plenty to eat.

Rather typical roadside restaurant! Convenient, easy to find, clean for the most part, been updated and looks pleasant. Restrooms need some help. Plenty to eat, not over priced. I did not communicate well and ended up with a Western omelet with corned beef hash on the inside rather than on the side. The staff is not very attentive on refill... More

Woody's is convenient to the interstate and has a good selection of menu items as well as a list of daily specials and a salad bar. Service was prompt and friendly. I had their ham and bean soup, salad bar, bread pudding and tea with honey and lemon. My husband had the soup and a taco salad. All of it... More

My wife and I stopped at Woody's on a Sunday afternoon our way back from Florida. As the name says, this is a family restaurant and there were many families enjoying a Sunday breakfast/lunch. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. Our food was very tasty. I got the salad bar with my meal. The lettuce and condiments appeared to... More

We stopped for lunch as we traveled south on the interstate. We were seated and acknowledged promptly. The menu was extensive, and our sandwiches were tasty. My turkey melt was cut right from the roasted bird, and my husband's tuna melt was also good. This seems to be a popular place for local families to gather. The timing is right... More

This is my 3rd stop at this restaurant, 2 breakfasts and today lunch. I did note a sign outside which said New Owner. Their portion sizes certainly havn't been squeezed by a chg of ownership. Each of my meals has been more than enough and tasty! Today roast beef was one of many specials. It came with a cup of... More

Stopped in while staying the night on a road trip. The food was excellent; the only "bad" thing was so many choices. Try the bean soup if available. It was awesome!

I've eaten at Woody's three or four times while traveling. I have yet to have a bad meal and I ALWAYS have food left over to make a second meal. I highly recommend taking the time to have a sit-down meal instead of just hitting the fast food places if you're traveling and if you live in the El Paso,... More
